the calculations are much more complex than that really, this isn't like sound rts where one farm produces a given amount of food and that's that.

Even vegitables, which are the simplest food in the game need taking from farms to storehouse by peasants, and you'll be in trouble if you don't have people free to do this. Then, wheat needs first grinding into flour by your peasants, and then baking into bread at the bakery before it's any use, and wine needs putting in barrels and serving by a bar tender (so you need to keep the supply of barrels handy too.

Also, while it is indeed good to work on one person per farm, each farm actually does a litle more than one person can produce, so if you want more from your farms, extra farmers can be helpful.

For how many precisely you need, it's just a matter of keeping watching on what's in your storehouse and what your peasants are doing, and what gets taken to the tavern to be used, it's just a matter of looking at the factors involved, what your population is, how many are working, what other food sources you have to contribute, and then balancing things out as they come u.

I think this is one of the most interesting things about Castaways generally, it's not merely a case of working out stratogy x and sticking to it with perminantly stacked ratios, you have to considder your current circumstances and play to what's going on, ---- at least until you get a really stable economy going and that takes a lot of time and work to setup.

Beware the Grue!

Subject: [Audyssey] question about farms in castaways


Hi list.
I know what the two farm types are for in castaways,
however I do have a few questions.
How much stuff does each farm produce? I am wondering so that I can keep my number of farms in proportion to population size. obviously I assume the more farms you have the more farmers it is better to have, so that one farmer isn't rushing between say 10 farms. I guess a similar question applys to the output from vinyards and bakeries, how many people can the output from one of each support.
same for hunters, how many people does each kill they bring back feed.
many thanks for your help,
Alex.
