Feeding the Dragon

Feeding dragons

Dragons eat once a day, when they wish, and immediately after consuming food - produce.

It is recommended to replenish the dragon feeder with a stockpile. The patience of the dragon is enough for 5 days of hunger in the native habitat, on the 6th day he leaves the habitat. Perhaps it will show up somewhere on Clone Earth and try to settle in with a new owner, or it may disappear forever.

Feeding selectively is not allowed. There is one dragon feeder built, common to dragons in the castle caves, the amber caves of the principality, and the research center.

Each age of the animal corresponds to its optimal feed ration, which will allow it to gain weight at maximum speed and produce the maximum amount of production.

It is important to realize that deviations from the optimal feed ration will result in a lower rate of weight gain by your animals, as well as a lower rate of the rest of their vital processes. The greater the deviation from the optimal feed ration, the slower the animal will gain weight and the less it will produce.

As the animals get older, the consumption of each type of feed increases (from a minimum on the first day to a maximum on the last day) and their weight gain increases proportionally (from a minimum value on the first day to a maximum value on the last day of this age period).

It is possible to obtain offspring from dragons at the age of 101 to 900 days inclusive.

If the animals get very little (relative to the optimal diet) amount of feed, close to 0 - their weight will decrease. In this case, the animals will lose 1/3 of the weight they would have gained with an optimal feed ration.

Suboptimal dragon food rations

If there is less food in the animal's feeder than is needed for an optimal diet, your animals' feed ration becomes sub-optimal (i.e. incomplete). How to understand how much the production and weight gain will decrease, the recovery period after mating, after the birth of a litter, the nurturing period, etc. will be prolonged if the diet deviates from the optimum?

Well, it's pretty simple. The optimal diet of dragons consists of 4 types of food. Suppose your animals are missing one type of food in their diet, then your animals' deviation can be calculated using the following formula:

Weight gain and the amount of production (manure) decreases:

  • Current value of the parameter = (value of the parameter at the optimal diet - 3/4)

The recovery and pregnancy periods are lengthened:

  • Current parameter value = (parameter value at optimal diet - 4/3)

Now, let's consider the case where there are 3 types of food missing from the feed ration. The above formulas take the following form:

Weight gain and the amount of production (manure) decreases:

  • Current parameter value = (parameter value at optimal diet - 1/4)

The recovery and pregnancy periods are lengthened:

  • Current parameter value = (parameter value at optimal diet - 4/1)

The consequences of any intermediate deviations from the optimal feed ration are calculated in the same way. However, note that the above examples of calculation do not apply to the amount of gold that the dragon brings. The amount of gold yielded by suboptimal feeding rations also decreases, but the relationship is not linear.
