I just looked in my NPC inventory and noticed that several of them have Wage Owed: and then the amount. Should this be happening? Should I pay my NPCs? Should it be reported as a bug? Thanks for any assistance provided. Cheers!
I remember when we had to pay NPC wages a while back, it was taken offline because it caused problems with the FI which constantly messed up and paying wages while not always receiving FI wasn't a good combo. Count yourselves lucky that we've gone so long without it. As Tiali said, you have a month to sort it out. The options to set wages as auto paid or not have always been available too.
Don't have the time to check the Rules (it's getting late and mah machine is running slow), but the wage is based on the cost of hiring the NPC from the source, correct? And not how much you paid? So if you paid anywhere between 0 (won them or were gifted them) and 2mil (a special custom in an auction) the wage would be the same?
So, umm, why is a Fighter pilot earning more than a Freighter and a Capital Ship pilot? In fact, out of mah small sample of NPCs (MCT, Brawlers, Medic, Builder, Fighter, Barge, Freighter & Capital Ship Pilot) the Fighter has the highest wage
shame the autopay does not seem to work as it should or used too. and there been a warning about it being turned on and only I who missed it? If so could made sure we double checked all NPCs for any outstanding wages. Lost several thousands NPCs which was used in various ways due to this.
