What controls the amount of Royal Jelly that can be collected with Glass Jars? There are reports on the forum of collecting many jars of Jelly -- as many as you have jars. But playtests with current Arulco Vacations I am only able to collect a few (5-7) before the Jelly runs out. I haven't modded anything regarding collecting the Jelly . . . that I know of.

As far as I know the only factors are the quality of the jars and if the corpse is still there. Not sure what the threshold is for jar quality, but I've never had a jar below 20% work and have many others fail under 50%. Also not sure what the corpse timer is, but I've never been able to go back a third time with more jars.

I only learned about the jars a few years ago and haven't played that much (or Arulco Vacations at all).

Thanks for the info. It seems, however, that it is related to the executable. It works as normal with the stock 7609, but not with the Experimental 7609+AI. I'm trying to get a save from my playtester for Sevenfm to look into it.

According to the code, upon death, the bug queen spawns 7 - difficulty level pieces of jelly. Additionally, until the corpse vanishes (should be CORPSE_DELAY_UNTIL_DONE_ROTTING minutes), you can transform empty jars into jelly as long as the jar isn't damaged too much.

The jelly position (item #217) is hardcoded, so don't change that item.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.
