[edit] Food values

The multiplier for prepared food seems to have been heavily reduced. My full pots of food are only worth an average of about 50 DB at the caravan.unsigned comment by DracMonster

What version? In v0.40.02, prepared meals no longer receive a top-level quality modifier. That can significantly affect the value of biscuits prepared with low-value ingredients (>75% reduction is possible), but isn't really significant for lavish meals with good ingredients (roughly 12% reduction). 50 is exceptionally low--even a no-quality stack of 5 lavish meals with cheap ingredients is worth 90. Perhaps your broker is underestimating the values?--Loci (talk) 00:12, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
I was mistaken. Prepared meals can still have a top-level quality modifier, and the resulting value calculations appear equivalent to v0.34.--Loci (talk) 00:42, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
These are pots full of lavish meals. Maybe it is my broker, but I've never seen them valued this low even with a no-skill broker, so I still kinda think there's been some other alteration to the formula. Considering how insane prepared food values could be, it wouldn't surprise me.
I can confirm having traded a pot full of dwarven wine roast (don't remember quality - probably "fine") for over 1k db in the 2014 release. That said, I'm a fairly new player and don't know what expected values are. Will try to remember to update with more accurate info when I start another fortress (undead...) {{Mixtrak (talk) 06:17, 23 July 2014 (UTC)}}
You're certain it's not just the value of the pots you're seeing? Look inside the containers and check the individual roasts to see what each one is worth. I suppose it might somehow also be possible that you just got really unlucky with a bunch of no-quality seed roasts, but the first thing that occurred to me was that the screen you're looking at is only showing the value of the container itself, and not its contents.

[edit] Stews

Where do you think the dwarves get the bowls for stews? Or do they kind of just let it sit in a puddle and coop it off the floor when they want to eat? 06:29, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
