When I have to many kittens I get out of catnip and my kittens die. So I was curious how much catnip a kitten requires?

    How much catnip would a cat nip if a cat would nip catnip? – Kevin Sep 19 '14 at 13:10

Each kitten's base cost is 0.85 catnip per tick. Note that this cost can be reduced by Pastures, which reduce this number by 0.5% each and Unicorn Pastures which reduce this number by 0.15%. (Also, the Pasture reduction is subject to a diminishing returns effect when you push it past 75% reduction, so kittens' cost will never quite hit 0)

The relevant bit of the code, for those who are interested, is right near the top of village.js

catnipPerKitten: -0.85, /* amount of catnip per tick that kitten consumes */

    it's 0,5% not 5% see here – Serverfrog Sep 19 '14 at 11:08
  • @Serverfrog correct. It is indeed 0.5%, otherwise pastures should cost a lot more or they would be overpowered – Mathias711 Sep 19 '14 at 11:59
  • @Serverfrog Whoops! Was a typo, I was in a hurry to get this written up before heading out this morning. Thanks. (I had left out unicorn pastures to avoid minorly spoiling them, since Unicorns are meant to be a bit of a surprising find) – Billy Mailman Sep 19 '14 at 12:28
  • is it additive or multiplicative? If I got enough pastures, would my catnipPerKitten drop to 0? Or would it get 5% smaller every time, approaching by never reaching 0? – corsiKa Sep 19 '14 at 15:50

    @corsiKa It adds together, so twenty pastures is -10%. Can't reach -100%, though, which I mentioned in the answer already. – Billy Mailman Sep 19 '14 at 15:55
