Starvation
« on: February 05, 2016, 05:24:01 AM »
Has something changed with starvation code? At the start of the current Hawk war starvation appeared as we expected, requiring constant movement and resupply to keep our forces in the field. Then we crashed a settlement into starvation, and our own hunger issues seem to disappear. Now we have moved on to other settlements, yet still without refreshing our camp followers, and still traveling as a rather large grouping of troops we do not face hunger issues. We will continue to monitor, but it appears since the following changes occured

  • Resupply: Camp followers now gather more efficiently, and they can scavenge a little and do shady deals even if you don't have resupply permission.
  • Small balance fix: Better food storage for estates near the balance point
  • Small fix: Entourage now eats the same amount of food as soldiers.
The new balance of food supply, which were good for the game and gave defenders some much needed advantage against armies like Hawks, are apparently undone.

in a recent movement of troops i lost several hundred to starvation, so unless any change has happened in the last two weeks it would seem to still be a significant factor.

Yes the changes are more recent the two weeks.
