Everyone Poops. Can provide nitrogen to help crops grow in their plots. Would be more efficient fertilizer if combined with thatch in Compost Bin.


Feces are produced by all terrestrial and aerial creatures and humans in intervalls, depending on the amount they eat.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Fertilizer

Feces can be used to produce Fertilizer, which can be placed on Crop Plots to grow crops. Feces alone can be used as fertilizer, however, it is more effective to turn them into Fertilizer, which gives 54 000 fertilizer points.

To create one bag of Fertilizer, 3 × Feces.png Feces must be placed in a Compost Bin along with 50 × Thatch.png Thatch. After around 50 minutes these ingredients are turned to fertilizer. They can also be converted more efficiently by a Dung Beetle, which converts feces into fertilizer in 15 minutes (along with oil) and produces up to nine times as much.

Food

Feces can be eaten as it is technically classified as food. When ingested, feces will do damage to the health pool.

Aquiring[edit | edit source]

All non-aquatic creatures produce feeces. Feeding a Phiomia or Roll Rats stimberries will create a river of feces.

* When a plant has its maximum of fruits, it needs less fertilizer. As the fruits spoil after some time, leaving the plant in a non-full state for some time, these numbers are rather theoretical maximums.
