ydmatrix2 -> "Public Economy Bonus" has no effect. 1.03beta6 (6/18/2020 10:55:33 PM)

My regime has a 40% public economy bonus. This however has no visible effect on any production number anywhere I can see.

(Btw - note that this bonus is named in 3 different ways in various places:
"Public Economy Bonus" under "State Companies" regime feat in Profiles screen,
"Economical Bonus" in Reports=>Overviews=>Feats and Bonus overview,
"Public Production Bonus" in the *tooltip* of the same "Economical Bonus" line above)

As an example, an agridome that produces 200 food + 19% governor related bonus, but no "public economy bonus" anywhere.

The agridome production:
(also - note a typo on the right column with the production modifiers: Governer => Governor)

Thanks for raising this.

In fact the name is not only 3 times different, neither of them covers well what it does.

Fixed the nomenclatura in next Open Beta with a bonus, now called “Public Industrial Bonus” and applies only to public: Industry, Heavy Industry and Hi-Tech Industry.

Best wishes,
Vic

This sounds quite a harsh nerf relative to the current described benefit from this bonus.

Does this constriction also applies to the bonus provided by the "Double Shifts" faction stratagem?
And I'm pretty sure I remember one of the Cults giving public economy bonus?

Yes it does.

In fact its a case of the manual being wrong considering the strength of the effect.

For the next version I am leaving this as it is. But i'll take a second look later. You might be right it could use a little boost (maybe making the percentage from the regimeFeat lower, but expanding it to all public production)

Best wishes,
Vic

Having the Raw Material production fluctuate because it is affect by such a bonus (or penalty!) would be a serious issue. With a temporary one, you could jump from a huge surpluss to a huge deficit in 1 turn.
I do not mind if it only affecst IP, Machines and High Tech Parts anymore.

The public economy bonus from regime feats on Government profile path is very long term and gradual - not temporary. The public economy penalty from a the Eternity cult (which now gives a research boost with almost no actual downside due to the above constriction) is also long term and gradual.

The only temporary effect I can recall now is a faction stratagem "double shifts" which does exactly what it says - a one time one turn boost (which you don't rely on when planning/balancing your production dependencies).

Personally, I think this mostly kills the Government profile branch for me, except maybe the very first regime feat.

Raw Materials - particular metal - are useless without the IP to make them into something usefull.
And there is a bunch of stuff like roads that needs only IP.
Aside from a few edge cases early game or when I just lost a Metal Mine, I am usually way more constrained by the IP then the metal.

And hte Machine and High tech one just results in a better Conversion ratio (similar to how Agriculture makes Farms more water/food efficient).
