Pigsty #

A pigsty is an important and useful economic structure that has a significant impact on many aspects of running a pig farming business.

The pigsty is built one for the entire game account, that is, common to all clones of the account. At the same time, the animals kept in the pigsty formally remain the property of the clone to which they originally belonged.

Pigsties in the world of clone land have different capacities, which determine the maximum number of livestock that can be housed there at one time and benefit from the benefits provided. If there are more pigs than the pigsty’s capacity, the excess pigs will be fed from a trough in their owner’s barnyard.

An important point is that a pigsty needs regular repairs. If you do not repair the pigsty in time, it will break down, cease to function and therefore cease to provide all its beneficial effects for the pigs contained in it. In this case, the animals will no longer be able to eat in the broken pigsty and will begin to consume food only from the feeder in the barnyard of their clone owner.

Based on your chosen strategy for developing a pig farming business, you can start with a small pigsty, gradually expanding it as the number of animals increases. Or you can immediately build a pigsty of the maximum size. But remember: the larger the pigsty, the more various beneficial effects it provides to your pigs, however, the costs of periodic repairs of such a large pigsty will be higher.

Construction cost #

The cost of building a pigsty depends on its capacity.

Repair #

The pigsty requires repairs every 30 days of operation. Repair costs do not accumulate - the cost remains the same, even if no repairs are made for several months.

The larger the pigsty, the more materials are spent on its repair.

If you did not have time or forgot to repair your pigsty on time, it will break. Until you fix it, all your pigs will only consume food from the feeder in the barnyard of their clones - the owners.

At the same time, in a broken, non-functional pigsty it will be impossible to mate one’s own sows and boars. Also, a broken pigsty will no longer provide a discount on processing manure into fertilizers, will not increase the weight of newborn piglets and will not be taken into account when calculating the total value of the game account property.

However, it is absolutely not necessary for you to personally monitor the repair time for the pigsty and do it manually. You can activate the convenient “Automatically repair if broken” feature right on your pigsty page. Then repairs will be carried out automatically immediately after a breakdown.

Increasing pigsty capacity #

The larger your pigsty, the more benefits it will bring to your business. However, at the very beginning of their careers, entrepreneurs do not always have the funds to build a pigsty of the maximum level. Therefore, as a rule, they start with building an entry-level pigsty. You can upgrade your pigsty at any time, increasing its capacity and the benefits it provides.

The capacity of the pigsty can be increased gradually, improving it one level after another.

The benefits of a pigsty #

Simplifying bulk livestock handling #

As number of your pigs increases, dealing with each animal individually becomes inconvenient and time-consuming. Posessing a pigsty can greatly simplify mass operations with a large number of livestock, for example, the procedure for feeding them.

If there is no pigsty, you need to feed the pigs in each clone’s barnyard every day. However, if you have a pigsty, all pigs contained in it, belonging to different clones of your account, will eat from one common feeder of the pigsty itself. This significantly saves time and allows you to quickly control the availability of all necessary feed in your animals’ diet.

Possibility of mating your own animals #

Only if you have a pigsty, you will be able to breed sows and boars that belong to you for free, including animals that formally belong to your different clones. Without a pigsty, you can only rent stud boars for mating at the special fair.

Weight gain of newborn piglets #

If you have a large pigsty with additional improvements, such as installing special magic solar plates on the pigsty roof, you will be able to produce offspring of greater weight compared to the basic conditions. These plates have a special effect on the animals in the pigsty, due to which the weight of newborn piglets increases.

Table. Cost of a pigsty improvement

CapacityNumber of plates, pcs.

If you decide to increase the capacity of the pigsty by expanding it to the next level, then you will need to additionally purchase and install exactly the number of new solar plates that are indicated in the table for this new level. In this case, all the plates that you installed on previous levels of the pigsty are already taken into account and you do not need to install them again. The weight of the offspring in a pigsty of any level, which is not improved by plates, is calculated using the standard formula:

\(W = (f+m) • 0.03\)

The following variables are used in the above formula:

\(W\)final weight of the offspring;
\(f\)father boar weight;
\(m\)sow weight;
\(0.03\)standard coefficient.

If plates are installed in the pigsty, then the formula for calculating the weight of the offspring takes on a new look.

400(parents weight / 2) x 14%
1500(parents weight / 2) x 19%
4000(parents weight / 2) x 21%

Discount on processing pig manure #

One of the important advantages of the pigsty is that it provides its owner with a discount when processing pig manure into Pig Breeze fertilizer. It does not matter at all whether this manure was produced directly by your own pigs, or whether you simply bought it at the fair from other players. The discount is provided specifically for the cost in gold coins of the process of processing manure into ready-made fertilizer. And the higher the level of your pigsty, the greater the discount you will receive.
