Fun fact time: more engineers do not speed up build times

Postby kwok » 08 Jan 2017, 01:56

Hi, did some testing with Markr and I learned recently that adding more engineers squads does not make a building build faster. Repairs are faster, losing units in a squad make it slower, but if you put 60 engineers vs 6 engineers, they will build at the same rate. Do what you will with that info. That's all I got for now.

for a building, check max_engineers in contruction_ext. I think it is the max numbers you can stack to build faster. I presume exceed this number bring no benefit.
