meat disproportionate to size of animal

13 votes

Change meat received from hunting to be proportional to size of animal, both for normal meat and the newer high quality variant. For example, a chamois or wolf should not be able to give the same amount of meat as a buffalo (often 7 for both the former and only 7 for the latter). Further, a baby deer or rabbit shouldn't give as much specialty meat (in quantity) as a bear. With the current overdistribution of specialty meat, a hunter in both forest and desert biomes need not be concerned with non-meat foods once he/she builds a drying rack and has hunted baby deer, wolves, cougars, chamois, hyena, and/or rabbits for about fifteen minutes.
I would suggest classifying the huntable fauna in 4 groups: small, medium, large, and megafauna. Double both normal and specialty meat amount ranges with each class size increase. For example, both kinds of meat distributions could be scaled as: 1-2 for small, 2-4 for medium, 4-8 for large, and 8 to 16 for mega.
