This is starting to look like a monastic communism.
« on: August 07, 2014, 02:10:38 PM »
No matter what the circumstances of the individual, everything goes into the communal pot. 

Today, I had a hunter die of starvation within moments of another hunter depositing venison in the storehouse.  I've had fishermen die of starvation as well. 

Such dedicated people!  The food production people don't hold out anything in times of shortage but kick it all into the general pot while starving, then they don't seem to have first dibs on the pot.

If the food is not available at the abode of the victim, even if he has hands full of it, he can starve before he gets to table.  Very monastic and ascetic.

Which version of the game are you using?  In the 1.0.3 they can eat from a barn or a marketplace, even if their house is devoid of food.

I wasn't aware there was a version newer than 1.0.3.

i really dont understand how you can be in 2.0 while everybody in the world have 1.0.0 1.0.1 1.0.2 and most of us 1.0.3

when you start the game, the version is written in the bottom of the screen

I haven't had a starvation death in a long, long time. I've been playing 1.03 since it was released.

Yes, with 2700 pop in the 500 farmer challenge I was having 40 or 50 die every year of starvation. That was with 1.0.2.

Since I went to 1.0.3 I don't think I have had any starvation deaths, and am currently on 3670 pop.

GOG.com.  If these are not correct versions, someone should set them straight.

@slink, why are you not using the final 1.0.3?

@slink, why are you not using the final 1.0.3?

The beta fixed my problem and I never noticed that it went final three weeks later.  Have you found a large playing difference between the beta and the final in this case?  I see from his blog that he fixed a few more things.

Installed 1.0.3 which seems as good or better than the GOG version.  Some confusion there because I have three versions for GOG all claiming to be version 2.x.y.
