Title: Factory production
Post by: Milko on May 18, 2020, 08:50:34 PM
Hello

In my current game I have some industries that never produce the best. The one in the example has a maximum production of 8 units but always produces only one per month. Can anyone help me understand?

This is because the production output is set to 20% of the input, which is perhaps a good reason to implement Ranran's suggestion as discussed here (https://forum.simutrans.com/index.php/topic,19885.0.html) of removing entirely the units/month figure at the top, which may be potentially misleading in such cases.

20/month * 20% = 4/month but in the example productions is 1/month, maybe something is wrong in the formulas?

I agree to modify the GUI, to be more clear.

I don't think it's an issue in the formulas.
What does your connected consumer look like? It might be that consumer has a small inbound storage or does not allow enough goods to be in transfer.
