Agree. Wasteland's system was good, but not perfect. I think the ever present threat of random encounters is a good balancing factor for unlimited resting.
See the more I think about it the more I prefer the wasteland system.
The concept of "Resting" to improve your general health works for me.
Then having skills that affect "non-general" health issues also works.
I think the concept of having items that "assist" the skills is a good idea.
I also don't mind the concept of short term "boosts" that then "require" rest to account for. (taking pep pills type thing).
I think it works as well as any other system. Better in some ways. Sure its a little painful at times, especially if you keep getting hit with Random encounters, but thats part of the pressure on it. If you can't handle the heat, then you've gone into an area that is above your level
