*UPDATED 18 oct* I'm stuck with two mandatory quests that I cannot finish quickly, before it used to be one mandatory and one repeatable quests line. With 9 workshops, with my work, I can only schedule 2 x 9-hour and 1 x 3-hour productions per day. I can only produce 65k, while I need 330k each day. WHAT? 330k? Are you mad? Nope, I need: Total of supplies needed just for manufactories: 189k 6 x 10k supplies for 9-hour production of 3rd tier manus: 60k x 2 = 120k 6 x 5k supplies for 3-hour production of 3rd tier manus: 30k x 1 = 30k 6 x 2k supplies for 9-hour production of 2nd tier manus: 12k x 2 = 24k 6 x 1k supplies for 3-hour production of 2nd tier manus: 6k x 1 = 6k 12 x 300 supplies for 9-hour 1st tier manus: 3.6k x 2 = 7.2k 12 x 150 supplies for 3-hour production of 1st tie rmanus: 1.8k x 1 = 1.8k Total for troops: 66k 24 training slots per day = 2,750 supplies each slot = 66k of supplies Total for daily upgrades: 30-50k Supplies needed per day: 305k of supplies. And I need to accumulate supplies for techs. For example, Dwarven Workshops = 70k of supplies. So, I figure I need to accumulate another 25k per day for techs. In total, I need to produce at least 330k of supplies each day. With 9 workshops, I can only produce 65k. Even if I had no life and no work and I was using the 1-hour production often, I would fall short. 9 x 828 supplies x 15 hours = 111k + 9 x 2750 supplies (gotta sleep sometimes) 25k = 136k, not even half than what I need, but I wouldn't be able to play cuz I wouldn't have enough money to pay for my Internet access, cuz I would be out of work. ;-) Without RQs, I would need 46 workshops to have 290k of supplies per day with my schedule of play. 46? Yes. Simple rule of 3: 9 workshops = 65k, how many workshops for 330k? 45.7 workshops. "You have too many manufactories!" Really? Six 3rd tier and six 2nd tier is too many? Even if I remove all my manufactories, I don't produce enough for troops, upgrades or techs. Even if I double my workshops to 18, I would produce only 1/3 of what I need each day. Even if I triple my workshops, that would give me barely a bit over half what I need. Plus, these mandatory quests are forcing me to put KPs in techs I did not intend to research in the order the game is asking me. The game is asking me to research Dwarven Style Marble and Dwarven Style Workshop. 1- My 1st tier is Steel, not marble. Why make it mandatory? I intended to research it after Steel and Dwarven Barracks. Now I have to research it first. 2- I was going for Expansion 21 and Expansion 23 before going for Workshop, now I have to go for Workshop. 3- I don't like the game forcing me to play this way. Simply fix it and only allow one mandatory quest at the same time, or add a 3rd quest line, like in Forge of Empires, where we have more than 2 quest lines.
