I know I have been playing for a while now but I have quite often asked myself this question about the production timer on the mine and farm so figured today I might ask it here.
Example Scenario! So lets use a mine for this one, works the same for both.
Lets say you have 4 mine’s, 2 at level 12 and 2 at level 13 which is only 99 more iron per hour than level 12. But again the same applies if one was at say level 12 and the other at level 15 but with a great gap between them. Obviously all collected at the same time.
You have just collected all your iron and waiting for them to reload. Mine 12 produces 2800 iron per hour and mine 13 produces 2899 iron per hour, so techically they are still both set 1 hour.
Why is it then that the collect symbol pops up on the level 12 mine a few minutes before the level 13 symbol pops up if they are both set to produce a certian amount if food per hour.
Souldn’t it just mean that it produces more/faster during that hour and NOT take longer to reach that extra amount?
Or is the 1hr time factor just another uncontrollable random RNG part of the game which evades all common sense of what an hour is in real time.
On the otherhand if the symbol only pops up once it reaches it’s minimun amount which is what it appears to be doing, which then it’s NOT based on a per hour production timer in which case the written format of produced per hour would be false.
You would think that a 1 hour time worked the same for all the levels no matter how much was being produced and the system would just increase the amount being priduced during that time.
