As the title suggests, for " Stonehearth vanilla version 1.1 " + " ACE Mod 0.9.3.3 " . I felt this post was necessary in order to create one single place where some " hidden " food mechanics are better explained.
1 - How do hearthlings priorize which cooked food they should eat first? Is it through cooked food appeal value? And if you have a lot of one single " high value / priority " food, will all hearthlings eat all of it first before going for other " lower value / priority " food?
2 - As far as i understood cooked food is divided into " servings ", so 1 unit of " bug meat stew " = many portions for many hearthlings. Is the number of servings a fixed number for all cooked food?
3 - As far as i understood, one 11x11 farm field has room for 66 plants, but one harvested plant inside that field does not yield one food basket, instead a farmer has to harvest a variable number of plants (depends on the crop) to yield one full basket; for example, 5 plants for 1 full basket of wheat, 2 plants for 1 full basket of paddy, 9 plants for 1 full basket of corn. Those are maximum numbers, it can be lower than that - for example, if there are no more plants left to be harvested. The question: does the number of stacks inside a basket affect the number of servings inside a unit of cooked food?
4 - Where and/or how can i find all these information?
Sorry for the long post, and thank you very much for everyone that minded reading and answering. If something i wrote is wrong, please correct me.
