Forum:Representing speed/time boosts
Hello, I'm looking for opinions on the best ways to represent buffs that affect speed. As an example, this is an effect of the Master constructor's outfit.
- Increased build progress and a chance to instantly finish repairs for construction contracts
- 33 seconds to finish, down from 63 seconds, for regular furniture
- 24 seconds to finish, down from 33 seconds, for oak furniture
- 18 seconds to finish, down from 24 seconds, for teak furniture
- 14.4 seconds to finish, down from 16.8 seconds, for mahogany furniture
|Plank type||Time without outfit (seconds)||Time with outfit (seconds)||Time factor a||Time factor b||Time factor c||Time factor d||Rate factor e||Rate factor f||Rate factor g||Rate factor h|
Ignoring the columns names and the number of decimal places, which column best expresses the power of this effect?
Support e - I think e is the clearest one to laymen. Typically people prefer "three times as fast" etc. rather than "one third the time" or "saved two thirds of time" etc. Drop it down to 2 decimal places though. bad_fetustalk 16:10, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Support E - per Liquid and Markiplier13:24, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Support e - Per the master of chess.21:01, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Support E - To 2 Decimal places.08:12, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
Support E - 2 decimal places, per the chess maestro.23:47, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Closed - Option E will be the standard for representing any buffs affecting speed. There is also a consensus to keep it to 2 decimal places.03:50, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
