I have a query regarding exactly how the three Cabinet Minister metrics of effectiveness work ?
COSTS : Does this only refer to the cost of each policy ? I assume so but would like confirmation if possible. I think D3 would benefit greatly from being able to see POLICY costs GROUPED by MINSTRY, so that the relative strengths of each minsters EFFECTIVENSS are more readily apparent. More sorting/organizational controls for stats and data would be very helpful IMO.
EFFECTS : Does this correspond to ALL effects ie GOOD AND BAD or only the GOOD ones (relatively speaking) ?
IMPLEMENT TIME : I don’t really understand this one, on first glance it would appear to reduce the time to implement a NEW policy (or perhaps inertia times), but the bonus is percenatagewise and implement times in general are relatively small and discrete (mathematically speaking). How does a 10% bonus affect any implement time that is less than 10 quarters ? Am I just misunderstanding this ? It seems a little pointless, with times modelled as they are now, except for really large projects that take years to complete. It must be an issue with my understanding/interpretation.
Thanks in advance.
