The runies in my homestead don't seem to multiply quickly enough for me to take any to other areas without jeopardizing the homestead's prosperous state. It is at 35-ish for each runey type, and is only increasing by one (if any) per day. Any suggestions?
I would plant a whole bunch of grass and just leaving it there in order to generate more runeys in your homestead. Winter will be a pain, but in the other seasons this should help.
Not as much of a pain as you'd guess.
If you have a properly running Grass Factory, you'll collect at least 20 Grass Runey each day.
On days where you don't have to deal with managing Runey (1-7 of each month), need 14 Grass Runey for all prosperity areas. So, for each area, you will have to have (23x14) 322 Grass Runey for a full month. You will collect, in that timeframe, 460 Grass Runey if you get 20 each day.
With the leftover Grass Runey, you will collect 414 Grass Runey surplus over 3 seasons, giving you -more- then enough Grass Runey... allowing you to completely ignore your grass factory over the winter if you want! During Winter, however, your Grass Factory will -still work-. One way or another, you will be able to simple ignore the grass factory for a while if you want to.
