I have been seriously considering setting the production period so that it changes throughout the game.
Sometimes production would be at night, sometimes at day.
I was thinking 30 hours, (24 + 6) or 32 hours (24 + 8) between pays.
In 30 hours there are 4 different times throughout the game for production, in 32 there are only 3 different times a production might occur.
Example 30 hours: midnight, 6am, Noon, 6pm.
Example 32 hours: midnight, 8am, 4pm.
I may be able to make this configurable, but I’m looking for a new default, as the economy will be balanced against this value.
I have resisted this change in the past because I like have a fixed time to play my own games, but I have been thinking that we have a small international community here and it would be nice to have a default that was more fair for everybody.
