Food per Hour

From Arcanum Illyria

Jump to: navigation, search
Food per Hour is a measurement of ongoing post-construction cost, as in the rate of food consumed by a building at a particular level (indicated in tables as
Rate of food consumption
Expressed in units per hour
Food per Hour
). While the other natural resources are consumed in a single payment upon queuing a construction order, food consumption will remain at the level currently reported for a building until the new level is reached, and then switch to the amount listed as upgrade cost. Food consumption and production are both measured in units per hour and thus directly cancel each other out. It is possible for the effective food gathering rate to become negative due to consumption in excess of post-taxation food income.
