For example, you can leave a dead crab on the beach forever and the meat never spoils. But once you skin the creature, the meat will spoil if left out even if it’s cooked. I’d say cooked meat should last longer (not sure if it does).
Build a smoker and smoke your meat, it’ll take longer but it will never spoil
Thanks, good point. Regarding the dead animals not spoiling, I listed it here as a bug but it appears to be a design choice by the devs. People have told me it’s been like that forever. But I think the game should try to be more realistic, so to me it’s a bug.
