Description

The relevant help text for railroad is: "A railroad also increases any shield resources produced by a tile."

Plains produce a shield, but adding rail doesn't raise it from 1. Plains (Buffalo) produce 3 shields and adding rail increases it to 4.

History

#1 Updated by Marko Lindqvist 6 months ago

  • Category changed from Documentation to Rulesets
  • Sprint/Milestone set to 2.6.4

Railroad gives 50% production bonus, but as it gets rounded down, there's no net effect for a tile producing just 1 production point.
Most rulesets are affected as they have the same effect and the same helptext.

#2 Updated by Marko Lindqvist 6 months ago

Attached patch clarifies that the increase is "by half". That fit easily.
Is that enough, or would we need to add also explicit mention that the value is rounded down?

That's perfect. We (users) have seen enough of the rounding down elsewhere to not be surprised.
