Tips[]

  • Mush Bars are disastrously inefficient for regular food production. They consume extreme amounts of both dirt and water, offer no morale benefit, draw precious early game energy, and require considerable duplicant time to produce. Research Basic Farming and grow plants ASAP to avoid ever using them.
    • However they can be useful as a temporary food source in an emergency, or when attempting the Locavore Achievement .
