I've noticed as the game goes through the eras, the time for recalculation shifts compared to the real time hours. It's also very seldom on the hour as in 1:00, 2:00 etc. One server is at for example :24, another at :04 another at :17 etc. No consistency.
Another issue is where City consxumptions don't align with industry recalcs... like endgames where they are sometimes 3 minutes apart, which creates consumption issues.
I feel like my OCD tendencies are going nuts over this and it also makes it hard to plan; for example
" should I go to the supermarket now and will I make it back before recalc in the endgame"?
Well who the hell remembers when each gameserver has it's recalc the current week? or after the last maintenance pause?
So what is the suggestion?
Have recalcs reset/re-allign at the same time as the +acc get 5% extra cash in the middle of the night, so that recalcs happen every hour, on the hour, on all servers, every day.
