This may have been brought up elsewhere, I’m new, so excuse me if this has already been discussed.
In order to operate the prefab mk2 plant, I need settlers. To get settlers I need either the settler domicile or the barracks. Both of which require BTA to build, but to make BTA one needs a prefab mk2 plant. I couldn’t find any exchanges selling it to get the loop closed.
So, is this a broken loop or am i just missing something?
For Pioneer+Settler structures, the performance of the structure is linear with total working population in it and not by type.
For example, PP2 takes 25 Pioneers and 25 Settlers. With 25 Pioneer alone it will operate at 50% performance. COGC campaigns may only apply to one worker type. At the time of this posting, Promitor is running a Pioneers+10% campaign. This grants a 5% bonus to PP2 due to 50% of staffing being provided by Pioneers. So PP2 with only Pioneers is a 55% output, with Pioneers + Settlers it is 105% output, with the COGC bonus.
