NPCs Animal Groups
Are now correctly factoring in food source availablity in growth and a lot of NPC groups will alas be starving. NPC populations should return to more sensible levels over time.

Network Connectivity
Network connectivity issues have been corrected and the the recent lag should now be resolved.

A few minutes ago I typed 6 lines of text into AC.  All lines appeared to me.  Pressing F5 key and 3 of 6 lines (that is 50% for the math challenged) disappeared and were never actually seen by anyone but me.  This is a very common occurrence and has been happening since January.  My activity level in Illy has dropped considerably due to this technical deficiency.  

I would NOT recommend Illy to any new prospect for this technical deficiency alone.

This just happened on GC and my text only appeared for me - F5 and went away:
[21:41]<king taz> what does building foundry do?
[21:41]<The_Dude> opens blacksmith which opens forge

We've done a few more tweaks and hopefully this issue should now be resolved. Please raise an in-game petition if you experience further issues.

Ye what does 'food source' actually mean? Is it some ethereal quality discernible only to NPC groups or is it something more tangible that we can see?

Experiencing continued lag this am, in fact, the screen hangs and I have to close my browser to reopen Illy.  :(     All other sites are performing well.

I would be interested to know what these food sources are and if we can bolster them.  I have noticed a gradual increase and now near 'extinction' of local giant rats and wild dogs.

Do NPC groups feed on other NPC groups?  Eg do bears and dogs/wolves feed on rats?  Or do all NPC's share a common non-stated terrain based seen/unseen food?

I want to eliminate certain animal types and bolster others.  Can anyone link me to any ongoing or previous threads around known NPC information following the april patch?

The number of NPC's are dropping really fast. Not long ago it was up in 480mil now only 90 mil left and dropping. Are you devs sure you got this update right? At this rate there won't be any left to hunt in a while.

I'm also curious to what affects the growth or decline of the NPCs. Is the food value of the surrounding tiles or the harvestable food on tiles or something else the food that the NPCs need?

I was curious if it was just me, some relief that it is not.

We need an NPC that eats giant scuttlers.  Still too many of them.

I cannot wait until they can start eating again. I want them to turn back into myriad. I used to have almost all myriad around my towns, now they have all, but one, turned into Legion on the low end.
