@real_tabasco_sauce@BreakfastBurrito_007@Player of 0AD@alre@Dizaka@Philip the Swaggerless@Yekaterina@Micfild@Lion.Kanzen@chrstgtr@ValihrAnt@borg-, you currently have the roles of balancing advisors.

Personally, I think the values are a little lower than they could be. However I think they are high enough to be an advantage in some niche builds.

So for me the numbers would be acceptable. I would like to hear your thoughts.

I believe the values are a lot lower than they could be.

but I don't like the idea at large, I don't see any fun in it, and I think it could actually harm gameplay if it was buffed. so I'd rather see it useless than used with profit.

I don't think the current values make it useless in competitive play. Currently it seems to me corralling only can be justified if you use the cavalry to collect the food soon.

if you spend the food on livestock and you only gather them 2 minutes later, then you probably could have done something more useful than training livestock.

 

With the current values, you can afford not to collect the livestock immediately and store them in the corral as until your cavalry comes around to collect their food.

The fun in it is that it could help a well-planed cavalry build and it gives players another option to manage their economy.

I considered something like that. I imagine it's hardly impactful or worth the micro, so it's fine by me.

It's nothing like that. It's just a micro play option that provides a tiny buff to the corral strategy. good, because corrals have been significantly nerfed by the animals-by-age change, but personally, I would rather have the simpler setup.

I read the discussion on the code page thing, and @chrstgtr had mentioned about 17 women full upgraded farmers was equivalent to garrisoned cows for one set of values discussed there. I am a bit worried about the balance results of this feature relating to cavalry, Persians (new food trickle buildings), and raiding. 
 

I would like to see the system have some kind of management aspect to it, rather than it being “set up and forget”.  I know there is no precedent for such a mechanic in 0ad, but what if the trickle built up at the corrals instead of going directly to the bank, and you had to send a woman to collect it or “milk the cows”. I am thinking the woman would gather it at a super fast rate from the corral and then walk to a dropsite.

Not possible, yet. (But also on my list. xD)
