using engineers

#1 Post by joecool250 » Jan 08 2006

how do i use engineers? i right click construction on a building which is building, like an airbase but there seems to be no change in how many days it takes to complete.

You will not see an instant effect as soon as the Engineers move themselves on the constructing hex. The time to complete should tick down by 2 days per day of Game time once the engineers are there.

(I haven't tested this, but you may need the engineers at the construction hex for a majority of the game day time to get the construction effect. Ie, you can't move the engineers to the construction hex with only a small sliver of the time in the day left and expect to see a benefit).

The number (and if it's iomplemented by BG, the strength) of engineers you are using also has an effect as to how quickly they'll help construction.
Using 7 engineers, you should get 2 days knocked off time to complete, BUT if you use a different number and strength, for instance, say only 3 engineers, you may only see an extra day knocked off time to complete every other day.

On large hex maps (I believe), you should be able to stack 7 engineers in the construction hex, and 7 on each of the surrounding hexes, so you'll have 49 engineers working on that construction at the same time.

I have't tried it, but your construction should be accelerated greatly, ie. more than 2 days knocked off the days to complete per 1 day game time.
