Animal Parts

To differentiate between animal hides and rarer animal parts on the map we have differentiated the two icons. Cotters can collect the hides, skinners the animal parts.


To aid understanding of the various recipes we have added new images for the different rare animal parts:



Patch Sizes:
We have noticed that some mineral and herb patches were growing too large. We have now ensured that all patches are capped at the correct levels.

Therefore, if you are planning a building or harvesting strategy to exploit a patch of rare resources, we would suggest that you scout out these patches afresh, as the patches that you are looking at may now not grow as large as before. This is particularly important if you are about to harvest rare herbs, as you would not want to accidentally eradicate the patch.

Fixes:
  • Trade overview now shows what all trade units are doing rather than just caravans.
  • Cotter display of build time is now corrected.
  • Charge can now be levelled up on the commander screen.
  • Recalling gathers with messengers is now resolved.
  • Bumped cotters should no longer dissipate into the void.

Can you list a recipe page on the site/forum? While I understand light grey skin and dark grey skin are different, I don't know what they are called and it is hard to tell them apart when not right next to each other. 

If no full recipe page, maybe allow a mouse over on research to list the name of the ingredient?

Players will need to discover the recipe ingredients on their own. You can get a basic idea from the mouseover, but specifics are learned via research. I'm sure once players figure all of these out they can share with eachother the recipes (and that is fine by me) but we won't be listing them anywhere at this time.

If your army kills a group of animals, will hides or animal parts spawn on the spot or is it a random spawn?

Yes if you kill a group of animals, they can essentially "drop" animal parts onto the square. You can then go harvest them.

GM TC also mentioned that when animals fight each other they sometimes drop parts, which accounts for the seemingly random drops (at least partially).

Still a work in progress: http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Player/Profile/97413

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so you will not be dependent on anybody.
