I’m not sure if this is a bug or just a bad description, I researched Outsourcing and it reduced the scientists salary costs, but not the explorers. I expected it to do both. If it’s only scientists the blurb should probably make that clear. But given explorers are considerably more expensive I figured it’d do them too.
This is a bug, but not quite how you think. Outsourcing really does affect scientists and explorers even in the current build. The bug is that the explorer salary indicator does not get updated when you research it so looks like it doesn’t affect them. As soon as you fire or fire another explorer it correctly displays the reduced salary costs.
Regardless, I will make sure this is fixed in the next update. Thanks for letting me know.
Yep, I noticed after a while that the explorers price had dropped, but rather remiss of me I didn’t update this report! :-o
