This is a first. Can anyone explain what's going on in this picture?

The red boxes show the problem.

Image

I've had production set to 100%/demand for years, and it used to work properly. I don't know when it switched, but I reset it and let it go for a couple days to see if it would fix, but it didn't. I then lowered the production to around 65% of demand, which brought it to the proper production levels. It's as if there is some "phantom" demand level that the game is using instead of the displayed one.

Can't explain what's going on because I seen it too with coal. I set the production to 98% of demand and the the amount that is being produced is more like 98% of capacity. I end up setting it to 50% or lower on the demand to get the production where I wanted it.

Why would this be so hard to catch?
Production = Demand. :/

Sorry I didn't do a search first. It just was the first time I had run into it, and it seemed really weird.

Ya, that's what the code says, that's why it's hard to catch...

Neither "capacity" nor "demand" are fixed values, they are calculated. All the calculcations look fine but clearly there is a flaw in one of them. It might sound simple but George assures me it isn't.

It looks like its just a display problem because on the right-hand screen its showing Output as 29mil... just like your demand

I checked after you mentioned this, and here are the results:

Image

I changed production into daily figures so that it would be easier to do the math.

You'll notice that there is a stock of 519k, and a surplus production of around 45,000. This picture is from may 2.

Image

The stock has increased to 563k, which is about 45,000 higher than the previous day's stock. So production is in fact what is shown.

Seydlitz,

Thanks,
