A plastic cup is a water container used in cooking.


A plastic cup turns into a plastic cup of water when filled with water from a water water source. The plastic cup can also be used to craft a beverage. A cup holds 2 units of water.

A plastic cup can be placed outside in the rain to collect rain water. The water must be boiled before drinking, but it can be done only in a microwave oven. A plastic cup of water can be left in the player's main inventory and will be consumed as it's needed.
