I thought I noticed a few days ago that it seemed my Roos were eating much faster, but I dismissed it as just an error in my memory. But then this morning I logged in to find out many other people were having the same problem.
By my calculations, my own roos seems to suddenly be eating about 60% faster than they should be.
After the following posts I did some math. I've held steadily at about 100 roos for weeks now. Although each group of stumps I have has its own bowl of roo food, one L$1200 bowl of food should last 6 roos 28 days, so should last 100 roos 1.68 days. I went to SL marketplace and looked up my transaction history and found I bought L$1200 bowls of food at the following dates:
October 01, Order# 1281475445
1 bowl berries, Item ID 39295840
October 01, Order# 1281459022
1 bowl berries, Item ID 39266186
September 29, Order# 1281377212
3 bowls berries, Item IDs 39116607 thru 39116609
1 bowl junglevine, Item ID 39116610
1 bowl desert grass, Item ID 39116611
September 27, Order# 1281262315
1 bowl desert grass, Item ID 38904872
September 27, Order# 1281252108
3 bowls berries, Item IDs 38885631 thru 38885632
September 26, Order# 1281153489
1 bowl desert grass, Item ID 38702773
1 bowl of junglevine, Item ID 38702777
3 bowls of berries, Item IDs 38702778 thru 38702780
That's 16 bowls in 6 days, or an average of 2.67 bowls per day instead of what should be about 1.68 bowls per day for my 100 roos.
Before this date, it appears to be closer to the 1 bowl every 1 or 2 days like it used to be.
[07:04] Rory Audion: Is anyone else's roos eating really really fast?
[07:04] Gayle Shilling: they sure seem to be Rory
[07:04] Jagged: i was just going to ask the same question
[07:04] diamond Tamerlane: YEAH
[07:05] Rory Anderson: Cause...I bought the biggest berry bowl last week and I've only got 10 roos, it should've lasted another two weeks at least and it's nearly finished
[07:05] Kdabra: maybe they are pregnant xD
[07:05] Bethany Sheriffe: define fast
[07:05] diamond Tamerlane: i was wondering about that, bc i spent twice as much on food this week and am almost out again
[07:05] CHERI: i noticed my roos are going thru the berries faster in the last couple days
[07:05] Jagged: i have 2 nile that have eaten 57 nibbles in 3 days
[07:06] Rory Anderson: I'm gonna have to get rid of mine then. I can't afford 1600 a week for roo food.
[07:06] CHERI: dunno but the 1600 is suppose to last 1 month for 8
[07:06] Rory Anderson: Exactly, and it's only lasted a week for 10
[07:07] diamond Tamerlane: oh damn
[07:07] diamond Tamerlane: we should put this in forum on the web i think
[07:07] Gayle Shilling: not good, I'm in the same boat here
[07:07] Gayle Shilling: rolling restarts all week from blogs
[07:07] diamond Tamerlane: well i know i cant afford for it to keep doing that
[07:07] LisaAnne Portland: Food is definalty going faster
[07:07] Ceredwin the Meeroo Lover: mine have gone through 10 each per day this week
[07:08] ȿιɲɲɥ: i have a 1200 that i put out 2 days ago and its still over 1/2 and i have 16
[07:08] Violette McMinnar: yes right Cheri
[07:08] Gayle Shilling: may depend on the server you are on though
[07:09] Bella Mekanic: yep and file a ticket too....i hv a ticket in bcs of same problem...but we all need to submitt them so they see it widespread and not just one or too people
[07:09] đﾑ 乃Ʊηηεђ™: Rory do you have other roos close to that stump?
[07:09] diamond Tamerlane: my food isnt fellowshipped, i bought a bowl last night and have 16 nibbles left in it
[07:10] Rory Anderson: Nope
[07:10] Bella Mekanic: i am the only one on my sim and have tried bowl in fellowship and bowl out of fellowship and hasn't made a difference...each pen of 6 is going through 1 bowl per day.....hence why they r investigating mine..cus they are not eating proper
[07:11] Violette McMinnar: if the roos were hungry they will eat all the missed food
[07:12] Ceredwin the Meeroo Lover: mine were hungry but even if they ate up all the food that was due they are still eating 10 a day
[07:12] Rory Anderson: Mine are the only ones in a little dome 3500 feet up, I have 3 stumps out with the 10 roos spread out among them and the one berry feast I bought last week....when I looks a few minutes ago it had 47 nibles in it, it now has 45
[07:12] Bella Mekanic: my roo's are on 100%...i have a hospital type spread log daily for each pen...starting nibblets..ending nibblets in a 24 hour period, with checking them exact same times daily and logging all on them...they are consuming 4 times what they should
[07:12] Violette McMinnar: thats bad, I am going to check the bowl in 24h]
[07:12] Bethany Sheriffe: Anyone who posted here in the last few minutes mind if I copy/paste their posts about food into a forum post?
[07:13] diamond Tamerlane: wow bella, u should post that
[07:13] Ceredwin the Meeroo Lover: no
[07:13] Gayle Shilling: I don't mine Beth,
[07:13] Bella Mekanic: go right ahead Bethany...you have my permission
[07:13] diamond Tamerlane: no please do, i bought food last night , two days before that and now i am buying again
[07:13] Jagged: fine by me beth
[07:13] Bella Mekanic: i have a ticket in with them Diamond and levio & clever are working hard to figure out what going on
[07:13] diamond Tamerlane: u can post mine
[07:13] Gayle Shilling: I had issues with my Ozimal bunnies doing odd things when the scripting got messed up so wondering if the bug is in the roos now
[07:14] diamond Tamerlane: if they fix it i think they should give us all free food though, bc we will have spent so much trying to keep our roos from starvation, yesterday i had starving roos at one location, this moring my mans were starving
[07:15] Gayle Shilling: nothing was done with the bunnies, bug ticket filed in JIRA for the sim, Magnum server is an issue but last blog on script issues said it was on all servers
[07:16] Rory Anderson: I hope everyone's gonna get a free big bowl of food for this, I can't aford 1600 a week and neither can my girl
[07:16] Gayle Shilling: I agree Rory
[07:16] diamond Tamerlane: i know rory, i am out of money after i buy food again today
[07:16] JJ Hoobinoo: If past performance is an indication of future acts, I would venture to see if there is an issue MS will look after us.
[07:17] Bella Mekanic: i bn spending doubl my sim rent Rory....normal i should go through no more than 25 bowls per week...but instead i'm going through more than 70 bowls
[07:17] JJ Hoobinoo: to say*
[07:17] MegaCakes Meeroo: wow. how many roos are you feeding? LOL
[07:17] ღڪωℯℯт Cherry קiєღ: hmmm i have noticed too we just bought food. Has anyone noticed that an adult roo is losing comfort?
[07:17] Bella Mekanic: 76 roos now
[07:17] Star εїз: ya why is the food going faster latly
[07:17] JJ Hoobinoo: remember though if your roos are starving - they will eat more as they "catch up" be sure to include that in your calculations
[07:18] Bella Mekanic: yep cherry had that too
[07:18] Rory Anderson: None of my roos are starving and they never have been...they're just eating too fast
[07:18] diamond Tamerlane: true hoobinoo but this is happening to people who have roos not starved
[07:18] ℰℓℓҽ: mine get hungry really quick :/
[07:18] Violette McMinnar: if roos eat more does that mean they "grow" older faster too?
[07:18] JJ Hoobinoo: I believe a hungry roo does lose comfort as design no?
[07:19] diamond Tamerlane: i only had my dryads at my home starved,these others havent starved but i have spent double on food this week
[07:19] Bella Mekanic: sometimes they do Violette
[07:19] MegaCakes Meeroo: Well before I knew about breeding properly, I had 80 roos and didn't have that many bowls between them, and they lasted longer.
[07:19] ღڪωℯℯт Cherry קiєღ: Full
[07:19] ღڪωℯℯт Cherry קiєღ: mine are not hungry at all
[07:19] MegaCakes Meeroo: Even if they probably were bigger bowls
[07:19] ღڪωℯℯт Cherry קiєღ: have never been i hve an auto feeder to make sure
[07:20] Arianna Voltaire: its happening to me also.
[07:20] ღڪωℯℯт Cherry קiєღ: thank you arianna - i thought i was nuts. but i pet and they go up.
[07:21] Lone Spiritor: I have a family of 8 roos on one stump that are on another sim, I normally check them at lest once a day. I go one day to find all 8 roos starving with text almost in the red. And I know they had food when I left them as I picked up their nests that day. One was still only 5% so that was less than a day to starve
[07:22] Rory Anderson: Aren't there any CSRs on righht now to tell us what the hell is happening?
[07:22] Arianna Voltaire: yeah good luck getting anyone in this group to answer that is a csr
[07:23] Rory Anderson: Guess my roos will run away then
[07:23] Rory Anderson: I'm not feeding roos on money I need for rent
[07:24] Annie: whats up today?
[07:24] Contessa Scarletti: hello I have been away for a while could you tell me how come the terracotta sems to be so much money
[07:24] Annie: give it a couple weeks and they will be less
[07:24] Just Isis: I thought it was my imagination that I was going through too much food
[07:25] Aisha Campbell: sorry about caps
[07:25] Arianna Voltaire: your not cause im going through way too much
[07:25] Mara: hmmm my roo food doesn't seem to be going faster then normal 0.0
[07:25] Annie: you think they are eating too much food?
[07:26] Annie: mine seems ok too but i have a lot of roos and found of the giant bowls of food for them.
[07:26] Mara: not sure why everyone elses is lol
[07:27] Annie: mine seem to be going down normally but hard to say, i dont count four bites per roo per day
