    This is a community service announcement for Medieval Engineers. In the upcoming 0.6.3 update (it won't be tomorrow...calm down) we will be rebalancing some of the food. Specifically the stack size will be reduced to 5. This applies to prepared foods but not gathered consumables like berries and roots. If you load a world from 0.6.2 with larger stacks of food your stacks will be reduced and you will lose food. Prepare your stacks ahead of time if you do not wish to lose your food in 0.6.3. This has been a Keen community service announcement.

    Thank you.

    thanks for the heads up. May I suggest you announce this via the in-game news box? So the information reaches all the player base and not only the ones that check the forums

    Thanks for the suggestion. Anything that goes in the game news or through social media has to go through a series of approvals and I'm not able to bypass those, even for this simple message.

    Okay... Not a big fan of this change but whatever. Right now I'm assuming Bread is also included in this list along with the cooked stuff like Goulash and Mushroom Soup?
    I'm also assuming this will have no effect on 3rd party mods since they seem to set their own stack sizes for their respective foods.

    This is all correct

    Thanks. I've redistributed all my food to not exceed the upcoming limits. I can agree that a stack size of 30 is a bit ridiculous, but going down to 5 seems a bit draconian.

    I've been testing it a lot. It takes some getting used to. I have to grab a new stack of food more often but otherwise it's enough food to play with. I recommend trying it for a while after the update. Once you've adjusted to it you can provide feedback if you still think it's not enough. It will be much easier for us to increase stack size. It is only destructive when we reduce it.

    Also assuming flour bags and raw deer meat are also not subject to this change, is that correct? Thank you.

    Thank, glad I asked. Would have lost a lot of flour then.

    Wait... so flour is being reduced to a stack size of 5 as well? I don't see the point of this. Flour is refined wheat but it's not a prepared meal, it's still only an ingredient and its stack size is 15, not the 30 of other gathered item so it's already less.
