I think this is a decent patch. Lots more improvements to come obviously, but I’m making progress ;D
I love the changes to competitor research pace. I think the current level is about right; I believe that I play pretty well (having studied Toyota factories) and I find that I fall behind a little in the early game, but with substantial R&D investment, I feel like I’m catching up. I feel like I get to make choices about R&D while having a competitive offer that I can make to customers.
