 Year 9 Day 128 18:42 Facility construction time equation Amp Thane Looking through the rules on facility construction (http://rules.swcombine.com/?Facility_Construction&ref=Facilities) , I stumbled upon this equation for build time: ((Material Sum) / 48) * (1 - (Leadership Skill/50))^Quantity of NPCs * max(1.1 - Civ Level, 0.5) * Random Now, from the way I read this, the more NPCs you have, the longer it takes to build, which makes no sense. For example, assume ((Material Sum) / 48) * (1 - (Leadership Skill/50))=10. If you have one NPC, it takes 10^1=10 days to complete construction. If you have two NPCs, it takes 10^2=100 days to complete construction. Am I reading this equation wrong? Am I missing something?____________Light speed is too slow!
