The History of Survival Games – From Archaic to ARK This was an interesting article. The genre and its roots opened up, many interesting games mentioned, and UnReal World naturally being part of the history:

expansion on the planned animal husbandry so, reading the planned features list i noticed "animal husbandry".

first up, i can hardly wait for it. the new types of gameplay that could come from this is already filling my mind with joy.

but one little thing could make it go way further. not only being able to buy an animal, but being able to sell it.

but why?

simple, if i can breed animals i could survive off those, trough slaughtering them and trading their meats/furs/leather. but if i could sell the living animals it would make breeding them an even more viable source of income, maybe even good enough to replace njerp slaying.
of course, breeding animals requires large amounts of food/farming, so it won't be easy or quick to set up an animal breeding center, but it would make it pay off in the end.

so to recap, can we also get the ability to sell live animals?

Re: Which one is the best flour? The nutrition applies to the whole plant (by weight), as well as to the grains (again, by weight). The nutrition you find on the wiki is either for 1 gram or 1 lb, I don't remember. So rye (plants or grains) is worse than barley.

I don't have the stats in front of me but I didn't remember that rye also produced less grains. If that is so, than it's even worse.

Re: Which one is the best flour? I'm the one who just went and updated the flour page on the wiki.  I did some testing with an object inspector to look at nutrition and such.  Grinding flour from grains, seeds, or roots keeps the same nutrition values as the original, as well as the same weight.  The carb, fat, and protein values given are percentages of the weight that is each nutrient (i.e., grams of nutrient per 100g weight). 

Barley gives the most nutritious flour, at ~1370 calories per pound.  Rye, clayweed, and lake reed flours are all above 1,000 calories per pound, while hemp (seed), marsh calla, and bogbean flours are all just below 1,000 calories per pound.  You can make flour from nettle, turnip, sorrel, and yarrow seeds, but it's much much less nutritious than the other kinds of flour. 

If you want to figure out what to plant for the most calories, then you need to account for the number of plants that can grow in each tile and the total number of calories produced by each plant.  Note too that you've got it backwards:  rye produces three fistfuls of grains, and barley produces two, not the other way around.  On a per-plant basis:

  • Rye produces 412 calories per plant (~1/3 pound of grains)
  • Broad beans produce 378 calories per plant (~3/4 pound of beans)
  • Barley produces 302 calories per plant (~1/5 pound of grains)
  • Hemp produces 218 calories per plant (~1/5 pound of seeds, ~1/7 pound of leaves)
  • Clayweed produces 143 calories per plant (~1/7 pound of seeds, ~1/13 pound of leaves)
  • Turnips produce 97 calories per plant (~2/3 pound root, negligible size seeds)
  • Peas produce 57 calories per plant (~1/7 pound of peas)
  • Nettle produces 23 calories per plant (~1/10 pound of leaves, negligible size seeds)
  • Sorrel and yarrow produce negligible calories per plant

But for planting, this ordering gets shifted again because you can plant many more turnips and grains in a single tile than beans:

  • Rye produces at most 10,288 calories per tile
  • Barley 7,560
  • Hemp 2,529
  • Turnip 1,944
  • Broad bean 1,892
  • Clayweed 711
  • Pea 284
  • Nettle 227
  • Sorrel and yarrow negligible

So:  grow barley if you want the best flour (most nutritious breads, porridges, and stews).  Grow rye if you want the most total calories of flour.
