Make Milk/Wool quantity useful

Postby ekzarh » Sat Aug 29, 2020 10:12 am

Current "recharge speed" meaning of milk/wood quantity is useless.
Except maybe for bots who can shear/milk non-stop.

Growing it means player has to shear/milk more often to reap all products. Which is already tedious.

If quantity would grow the 'capacity' of milk/wool it will become much more useful - player will gain more with the same level of tedium.

Example -
with 10 milk quantity cow stores 25l of milk in 48 RL hours
with 40 milk quantity cos stores 50l of milk in 96 RL hours (same 25l per 48 but now you can milk them less often!)

I have like 15-20 of each domestic animal type and tend to them exactly once a week. Even with 20+ quantity I still gather max 25l of milk and 3 wools each time

To be fair, 25l canister by default is a bit much. This is also a reason why it is not interesting to collect milk - it is not well designed from the point of gameplay, this mechanic doesn't have challenge, doesn't require much player attention.
Maximum amount of stored milk should be decreased to 5 at base level, which will raise for 25-30 litters over milk quantity increase, as well as milk generation speed.
Sheeps and rams should have increased max wool/mohair increased with quantity.
