Storing perishables within the game

Post by sammon on Sat Jun 23, 2018 8:59 pm

Good evening gents,
Just wondered if anyone can tell me how I can store a quantity of meat which goes off in a few months time.
Can it be kept longer if stored in a particular location?
Many thanks for your assistance.

I did ask Richard about this recently in a game, here's a summary of what he told me

To long term store meat or fish, needs salting or to be cured with spices: costs 10% of weight, so
10,000 tons = 1,000 to salt. Smoking takes a month (after culling) and cost 5,000 per 10,000
tons and also preserves.

smoked, salted or cured fish (and I assume meat) should probably be stored in a warehouse to ensure it remains unspoilt.
Warehouses cost 10,000 each to establish, and can hold up to 100,000 tons each. There is no
annual upkeep payable for a warehouse.
