Does anyone understand the logic where city walls consume food but do not contribute to city population?

The workers live on the outside of the walls. You've always assumed they were designed to keep people out but it is quite the reverse- the commoners of Illyriad want to keep players trapped in their cities.

As such, a small force is sent  by the local towns and villages whenever there seems to be enough stone lying around to strengthen their defence against a playerbase that ravages the countryside on a regular basis.

This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some person started it, not knowing what it was, and we'll continue posting on it forever just because...

Wow, yes.

This is true, and a revelation.! After 10 years of illy, I am still learning about things I clearly coded badly. Embarrassed

Walls don't (and shouldn't) consume food (despite saying that they do on the defense page), and I'll set their displayed food consumption p/h to zero for all levels in the next update.

Many thanks for making me aware of this one.

Best, and Happy New Year,

Fixed.  City Walls now show 0 food consumption for all levels.

Many thanks for bringing this to my attention.
