Description
When adding or removing workers from a project, the new production time is calculated incorrectly. Specifically, the game acts as if the workers had been assigned to that project from the very start, rather than just being assigned now. For example, for one worker to create Shiva Rounds takes 100 hours. After 8 hours production the time remaining is 92 hours. If one then assigns nine more workers to the project then it would be logical for the remaining time to be adjusted to 9.2 hours (i.e., ten times faster). Instead, the game adjusts the time to 2 hours (i.e., 10 hours for 10 workers to complete the project, minus 8 hours already spent)! If this calculation gives a negative number, the project will complete almost instantly.
Steps to reproduce this issue
- Start a new game and build a base. - Enter the base screen and set production to Shiva 20mm API rounds. The production time now reads 10h. - Unhire 9 employees. The production time now reads 100h. - Run time forward by 8 hours. The production time now reads 92h. - Hire the 9 workers again. The production time now reads 2h. Unhire them again and it returns to 92h. - Run time forward by 6 hours. The production time now reads 86h. - Hire the 9 workers again. The production time now reads 0h. Unhire them again and it returns to 86h. - Finally hire the 9 workers again and let time run at the lowest setting (5 sec). The production will complete almost immediately.
