Rules with Food
With food, there are three important rules:
- Once you can process base food to complex food, use consumption menu to disallow your settlers from eating that base food. It is always better to turn base foods to complex ones, so don’t waste your materials.
- If you don’t have stable food source secured, buy food from traders. It’s better to overstock than lose the settlement.
- If you don’t already have stable food, prioritize buildings that help you get there – i.e. if you can’t make Flour yet, prioritize picking one ASAP.
