Built in a Compound. Uses 11x11 cells.
The amount of Raw Silk produced is subject to diminishing returns but appears to maintain a 1:1 ratio up to roughly 1000 Thistles. On the original shard, presumably because of a pyramid bonus, it now appears to maintain a 2:1 ratio up to roughly 500 Thistles. See Talk:Silkworm_Farm for some recorded numbers.
The Silkworms go in a 4-day cycle, starting from when you build the farm:
- 12 hours waiting for the next generation to be laid.
- 3 days eggs waiting to hatch. During this period the farm will display the current requirements.
- 12 hours either growing and eating (if fed), or simply surviving.
The type of thistle required will change after a cycle where the silkworms have been fed at least one thistle. If they are not fed, no silk will be produced and the thistle requirements will not change.
