Nervous Tissue[edit]

Nervous Tissue links to this page, but I'm quite sure it can NOT be eaten. However, can it be used for anything? I think it should get it's own article. Used 07:05, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Title?[edit]

Would 'Butchery' suit this better? I agree that a page separate from the Butcher's Workshop is a good idea and the page is well-purposed, but Butchery... or Food Preparation even, would be better. --Retro 06:09, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure this is the best name, but "Butchery" should refer more to the skill, and not one of several end-products of a labor of that skill. (An "in-game" term is always best, esp if there's one that covers the subject adequately.) I think we need to understand the process more - we can move the page at any time.--Albedo 18:06, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
There are several products. I suppose Meat might work, as they are all listed under Meat in the stocks menu. Problems with putting them under Meat or Butchery include that they are not handled in the same way as actual meat, the Butchery page can't be a catch-all for all of its products and their uses, and that we don't need 5+ pages for different forms of prepared meat that will be duplicates of each other with different names. --The Architect 22:49, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
If we can verify that they have no other alternate uses (such as taming and trapping) then we can lump all of this under prepared food. --The Architect 23:16, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
There's no problem with an umbrella article that uses one main game term as a catch-all for similar, (semi-)parallel concepts that would be stubs otherwise. 40d:skill is like this, with 40d:profession redirecting to the same page - not the same, but close enough that too much would be redundant if they were split. (Sim w/ 40d:Labor and 40d:Job, and many others.) I haven't had enough luck hunting to make a call first hand yet (waiting for the first batch of kittens to grow up!) "Meat" could certainly work, but all other things equal "Prepared food" would be superior b/c it's an in-game term and a logical umbrella category for "meat" and everything listed here, as well as other prepared/edible items. --Albedo 05:50, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I think Prepared Organs works as a page title. Prepared food should really refer to the prepared meals of the kitchen. --Calculator 02:51, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Cooking[edit]

Can these be cooked now? I heard that the exclusion of meat from the kitchen menu was a bug, and was fixed in the first extermination. I don't have any way of testing right now, can anyone confirm this information? The Architect 02:37, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Was fixed the same time as uncookable Quarry Bush Leaves. --Lightning4 07:17, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for cleaning up after me with the format edit and verification. I'm beyond rusty at all of that code! The Architect 06:17, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
