I’ve yet to make clothing because I’m so focused on trying to make farms but I’ve noticed something. If a full set of clothing can bring to close to a desert tiles (perfect) warmth then I will eat about 3x less food. This may not mean alot at first but it matters over the years. I’ve calculated it with carrots and a population of 6 people, if everyone is clothed they eat about 80 carrots in 40 years meanwhile if everyone is not clothed they eat 240 carrots in 40 years. What a huge difference.
Update: Just made a full set of rabbit boots shirt hat and pants? Its around x2 not x3 so 120 carrots in 40 years but saving that extra 120 must be well worth it. Thats at least an extra 8 trips of dirt baskets saved, 24 waterings saved, 24 seeds saved and 24 tillings.
