I really love the game, but in it's current state I can only play for a few days because my people refuse to eat even when there is ample food available. This results in a game over because they all die after a few days, making the game virtually unplayable...
Is the food cooked into meals? Also did you try changing the "rations" setting in the jobs panel? If not it could be a bug, any chance you could email me the save game? It's in your users\appdata\locallow\embark\embark\ worlds folder. Thanks!
I have tried changing the rations and the food is in simple meals, don't live long enough to research anything better. I have not had any real saves as all of my games have been very short, but I'll fire up a quick one and send you a save after the first death.
Ok I tried to fire up another game and I seem to have lost all my menus, I had this issue earlier and restarted my computer and it fixed it. But thats not working now, I can't even exit the game without force killing the process. So no actual saves but I can send you was in the world files and the error log from the main folder. just need to know where to send it.
I think I figured out the food issue I was having, there seems to be some sort of priority on the food you start with. So if you move far away from spawn you have to make sure to make hauling the start food is the top priority because the people "think" they need to eat those first and will starve before they will eat freshly crafted food? Anyway not sure why I keep losing my menus but none of the buttons will pull them up and I can't get the exit menu as the escape button just pauses the game to I have to kill it manually making me have to start a new world.
I think the issue is with the UI scaling in the current version. Go to your users/(your account)/appdata/locallow/embark/embark/config folder and delete the optionsinfo.xml file inside. 0.3 is coming very soon and should fix this too.
For the food, that shouldn't be possible, they search for food starting from items closest to them. Could it be because the food is inaccessible somehow? They can only walk up or down one block at a time.
