Default Level 19 and Level 20 Gem Mine - Search Requisites Display Bug

Leander asked me to repost this bug with more clarity, so here it is...

Previously,

Level 19 Gem Mine required 18m wood and 3m stone to search for a gem
Level 20 Gem Mine required 33m wood and 5.4m stone to search for a gem

Then, Leander posted in the Oktoberfest announcement...

Quote:
EDIT We also have a small update that will go live on Friday! Gems in level 20 mines cost now as many resources as level 19 gems (which makes level 20 gems cheaper).
What happens now ...

From the display, Level 20 Gem Mine still requires 33m wood and 5.4m stone
When I actually execute the search, Level 20 Gem Mine costs me 18m wood and 3m stone.

Here is my proof for what I've explained:

http://forum.sfgame.us/showpost.php?...&postcount=142

Picture 1: Version of Game
Picture 2: Current Resources
Picture 3: Display Cost of Gem Mine
Picture 4: Resources after executing Gem Search
Picture 5: Proof of Gem Search Execution

Picture 2: 50.25m wood, 252.47m stone
subtract
Picture 4: 32.35m wood, 249.47m stone
equals
Total Cost: 18m wood, 3m stone

The problem I have is, when I have more than 18m wood and 3m stone but less than 33m wood and 5.4m stone, it won't let me search, even though the actual cost is now 18m wood and 3m stone because it still displays as 33m wood and 5.4m stone.

Here is the proof for the bug:
http://forum.sfgame.us/showpost.php?...&postcount=145

Picture 1: Current Resources
Picture 2: Even though I have enough resources for 18m wood and 3m stone, I cannot perform a search because I have less than 33m wood.

So, the DISPLAY for Level 20 Mine should reflect 18m wood and 3m stone, instead of 33m wood and 5.4m stone

Leander, I hope this clarifies things

I got Playa's reply now. The displayed amount of resources is still wrong and you need the higher costs (33 million wood)...but when you have them only 18 are subtracted from your total. The bug is forwarded to the devs and a fix is in the works.

Is this really the final solution to the problem??? For all 20 mine levels we have the same issue with the imbalanced 6:1 price ratio that doesn't match the standard 3:1 we have for production and capacity. This same ratio mismatch is the reason why many players don't level up their gem mine as they can't catch up with the expenses. I understand we don't have 20 different complaints for each mine level (maybe we should), but which of the two solutions seems more logical to you?
  • Halve the wood cost for gem search for all mine levels so that the hated-by-many 6:1 wood/stone ratio becomes the "golden standard" 3:1
  • Just fix level 20 by using the level 19 wood cost, which is still not quite 3:1

I am a software developer myself and I would be utterly disappointed if someone asks me to follow the same formula for 19 levels and then use a completely different logic for level 20. Least of all, I would want to know why.

The level 20 costs are the ones of level 19 BUT the displayed amount is still wrong. Will be fixed soon!
