Feeding a Merm Guard provides the same max loyalty time and loyalty per hunger as feeding a normal Merm.

  • Fixed

With the new changes to Wurt and Merms, there's a secret little mechanic where feeding Guard Merms is meant to be more effective than feeding regular merms, having a larger radius and count in taming other merms.

-- It is better to feed guards than regulars to maintain loyalty!
        -- This will increase loyalty time and bonuses per hunger when feeding a guard.
        local loyalty_per_hunger = isguard and TUNING.MERM_GUARD_LOYALTY_PER_HUNGER or TUNING.MERM_LOYALTY_PER_HUNGER

There is a note in the code indicating that there'll be increased loyalty time and bonuses per hunger when feeding a guard. However, this doesn't actually seem to be the case? The "MERM_GUARD_LOYALTY_MAXTIME and "MERM_GUARD_LOYALTY_PER_HUNGER" values are exactly the same as their counterparts.

MERM_GUARD_LOYALTY_MAXTIME = 3 * total_day_time


MERM_LOYALTY_MAXTIME = 3 * total_day_time
MERM_LOYALTY_PER_HUNGER = total_day_time/25

Is the note simply outdated? Or was it forgotten to increase the MERM_GUARD values?

Steps to Reproduce

1. Look at the above code
2. Notice the variables are the exact same, despite the note saying otherwise
