1. Each teamster can only transport at most 1000 units of products at a time.
2. If teamsters are not adequate, products will just pile up and the output storage seems to be unlimited. Perhaps the maximum is the famous overflow value 2147483647. The only exception is petroleum industry, oil refinery will stop production once the limited output storage is full.
3. The input storage of each processing factory has a limit around 2000 units. That is to say, a teamster carrying 1000 units of raw materials will never consider a corresponding factory with an input storage of 1001. If there is no input storage available of a required type, dock is the last choice.
4. If there are two or more factories of one type at a time, teamsters prefer to transport raw materials to the factory with less input storage regardless of proximity.
5. When the output storage of a factory reaches 1000, factory workers will take charge of transporting due to inadequate teamsters.
6. Each citizen will consider to get food from a food provider as soon as his/her household meals are no more than 3. One can only get 12 meals each time - 40 units of food - as household meals for future use. Only couples share household meals, so their household meals are consumed double faster. Therefore, couples account for the vast majority of starvation victims. Babies don't require any food, health care, entertainment or church.
7. When hungry, one can only take a meal after getting out of a building whatever the building is.
8. Teamsters always reserve 200 units of food in each food-producing building so that the food producer can meet 5 more fetches of food before next harvest.
9. Citizens prefer to get food from fishery rather than marketplace. Farm is always the last choice, even farmers had rather go far away to marketplace than just get crops close at hand. So be careful when you start to build a marketplace or fishery, citizens all over the island will be attracted to get here.
10. But it's strange that marketplace does no help in improving food quality as official claimed. The only advantage of marketplace is that it's the only food provider which is not a pollution producer meanwhile.
