    I think they're being "fast and loose" with the term "bag". Like *all* animal feed, the Mill produces 1 "item" that is "3 bags of feed / substrate". When collected, each "item" takes up 3 slots in the barn so from that point of view, collect 1 item, get 3 bags. So 2 "collections of items" from the Mill yields the 6 "bags" needed for a full mushroom field.

    So I believe their use of "2 bags" in this context is incorrect, they really mean "2 Mill shelf items --> 6 bags"

    Thanks I realise the possible confusion after going back to my game.

    Yes I was confused too. Which easily happens lol. I didn't notice each feed mill bag says 3x substrate. Whew! Not as bad as I thought! Still a bit of a pain to store in the barn vs store in the feed mill. But doable I guess.

    We need more shelves in our factories and feed mills!!!!

    Has anybody tested if animal feed booster works on the mushrooms?
    And if they count towards feed X animals regatta task?

    The booster does double the yield, but mushrooms don't count towards the animal feed task.

    Odd, but there you have it.

    That is odd.

    Strictly speaking, fungi are neither plants nor animals, but in terms of everything else, the software treats the mushrooms as animals. I wonder if not adding them to the feed task was just an oversight and something they will correct.

    I don’t understand how the Mushrooms are treated as animals or why they should be included in the regatta task.
    The feed fir the Mushrooms (substrate) is produced in a “feed mill” not an Animal feed mill, which implies any feed fir anything could be produced there.
    As Mayfield points out they are not animals, and the regatta task is to feed Animals.
    I do agree though we need at least 2 more shelves to accommodate the substrate.

    Thank you for your replies That's not how I work, or would want to, but I think there isn't a feasible/good solution anyway to what Playrix invented here. Both in the feed mills, the mushroom "farm", and the other 7-or-what factories.

    oops, that is more than 2 things gone wrong.

    I just thought yesterday, after having read again about so many players banned again simply by updating the game,
    and when being annoyed for the umpteenth time about their adding the new products exactly to the factories with 8 products already,
    that - despite my willingness so far to interpret their actions as positively meant - it is possible that the folks are right who interpret it as "only for Playrix" - not the players. well, live and learn.
