|Energy and what influences it|
If you do not have any food in your inventory, the Recover Energy button will change into a Buy Food button which links you to the marketplace.
Note: If you have some other energy recovery options (e.g. energy bars, carrots, winter treats...) in your inventory, Buy Food button won't appear - instead a button to consume that option will appear!
Types of Food
There are seven varying qualities of food, with higher quality food having a higher star rating. Each increase in the quality of food increases the potential amount of energy restored.
How to Consume Food
You can only consume food by clicking the Recover Energy button, which can be found in the sidebar of any eRepublik page, underneath energy. After clicking this link, your energy will be restored as close to maximum energy as possible.
First, your citizen will eat the highest quality food in your storage. If the highest quality food will make your energy rise over the maximum possible, instead of the highest quality food the next highest food unit will be eaten. The energy values of the citizen will then increase the amount that is given to the food consumed. The information of energy will be automatically updated on the sidebar itself.
The amount of remaining energy which can be consumed will be displayed in the tooltip button.
- Note: If you have any other item for recovering energy in your storage, they can be consumed after you restored all energy that could be recovered with food.
- Note2: There's also a Recover Energy button on the battlefield which is completely the same way working as the one on the sidebar.
A quick note to be mentioned about food manufacturing, higher quality food requires more food raw material to manufacture.
The effectiveness of food depends on their quality. The higher quality of food the more energy it will restore and it will take less storage place:
