Advanced Precision Tech
« on: March 29, 2020, 11:35:54 PM »
A tech that when upgraded can adjust the precision of different things more precisely than before.
For instance, mine output. You can only adjust currently in 10% increments. Same for travel time.

Level 1, changes it to 5% precision (so 5, 15, 25, 35, etc)
Level 2, changes it to 2% precision (so now you just couldn't pick 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, etc.)
Level 3, changes it to 1% precision (1, 2, 3, 4, etc. all the way to 100 is now available. At this point, it would be a text field, rather than a dropdown box. If a value is entered that the current precision is not at (for instance, doing 24.5% at lvl 3, it rounds to the nearest available precision).
Level 4, changes it to .5% precision
Level 5, changes it to .1% precision
Level 6, changes it to .05% precision
Level 7, changes it to .01% precision

No benefit beyond level 7 (which is done for some already existing techs).
Perhaps once you get to Level 3, in addition to a text box field, a slider exists for fleet transportation times/fuel.

While I don't think much use will be in mine and NPP output for this, I do think Fleet Saving will become significantly more technical and precise with this.
