Putrid Meat no longer stacking consistently?


Game mode: Online private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
Region: EU

So the behavior of Putrid Meat is puzzling. Some remain in stacks of 190, 150, 60, 30, and thereabouts. No stacks can be combined with another, but nothing is broken down into smaller stacks as well. I’ve heard varying rumors from all meat is now intended to be stacked in 25, to this behavior being an unintended bug of the food system.

Stacks can be moved around, traded, but not condensed or combined even from person to person or container to person.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Logged in
  2. Checked all food storage and compost heaps for putrid meat.
  3. Attempted moving, combining, and dropping putrid meat.
  4. Results are as reported above.


Old stacks generated before the patch can exceed 25 (you can’t add to them though), but any new stacks max out at 25. It seems an odd change and I have no idea what the logic behind it is.


I see the same, that is quite annoying


It was noted multiple times in Testlive but with no answer as to whether it was intentional or not. If you collect putrid meat, this is quite a nuisance (some of us are hoarders).


Confirming same problem in SP too, it just happens, before that I had 2000 in stack


I had assumed this was a bug, not an intended change. I mean, why…

I guess maybe if thralls are eating putrid meat now (I don’t think they should be, I’d rather spoiled food in their inventory just disappeared, ie they ‘throw it away’) from their inventories, then it could be intended to prevent players just loading thralls up with tonnes of decay-free ‘food’.


I also noticed this today. While I appreciate the honey now stacking to 100, the putrid meat maxing out at 25 is annoying.


Yes it is. My compost box was congested with spoiled meat as it only stacks to 25. (what once took only one slot now takes up 8 slots.) The worst of it was the meat that was in there before the update (stacked to 200) is now sitting at odd amounts as the crafting system appears to be pulling from random piles so I have 179, 192, 185… and such.
