I think wine-making might be bugged.

Recommended Posts

I've been spending some time looking at the Beverages skill, and I believe wine-making may be bugged,


When my Beverages skill was around the 35-40 level, making a full 45kg barrel of unfermented white white (difficulty: 30) and making a barrel of unfermented gin (also difficulty 30) revealed remarkably different results.


I'd usually get something like something like 0.01 to 0.03 skill gain per 45kg with the wine but at least 20 to 50 times that skill gain (easily 0.30 to 0.50) per full gin barrel (in both instances using sleep bonus).


This week, with my Beverages skill hovering a little under 60, I created 12 (TWELVE) full 45kg barrels of red wine (35 difficulty) and received roughly 0.02 skill gain (for all 500+kg).

A couple of days later, I made one full barrel 45kg of unfermented rice wine (also 35 difficulty) and received 0.01 skill gain. That's 0.01 skill per 115(ish) maple+juice creation actions (not even count the effort required to grow, harvest and boil the maple sap and the effort required to grow and harvest and mash all the grapes/rice).


Today, I made two barrels of strawberry gin (also 35 difficulty, while my skill is at 60) and got about 0.35 skill.


It's pretty obvious to me that wine making has not received the attention other culinary areas of the game have received. Bugged as ######, in other words.


If it's not a bug, I'd love to hear why the game is rigged against wine.
