Number of build outs

Postby 44Woot44 » Thu Jan 12, 2017 4:58 am

I have paid for the extra 3rd build slot. But I only have two builds going on ATM, yet all three build out progress bars look full, as if I have 3. For the life of me, I cannot find the third. Is it possible one of these takes two slots? I really like the uniqueness of this game. Keep up the good work.

You can assign multiple thread to speed up a build. 2 means 2x and 3 means 3x.
A good feature tbh.

3 = 3x or 2.5 ?

If you have 1 dot = 10h, 2 dots = 5h, 3 dots = 2h30m, 4 dots = 1h15m, 5 dots = 37m30sec
(Hope I am not mistaken)
So, best advice I could give, use only 2 dots to maximize the potential time gain, unless you are rushing a node.

You're badly mistaken
1 dot = 10h, 2 dots = 5h, 3 dots = 3h20m, 4 dots = 2h30m, 5 dots = 2h
No mattet how you distribute the threads, the total time will be conservative if none thread went idle

I have 4 threads and im upgrading my guardian now, this is what numbers i see( i started it sometime ago):
1 thread = 14H 57M
2 threads = 7H 28M (1/2)
3 threads = 4H 58M (1/3)
4 threads = 3H 43M (1/4)

The more threads the time will be divided to that number.

Based on what i see and you can test it too sutopia(a bit hard for me to spell it, sorry :lol:) is right.
