Increase of piles[]

Some of the above does not seem accurate, could be based on older versions so I logged into the game and did some basic observations. One thing, right off the bat, is that the author states that gathering posts are 75% increased, but yet in the charts the coal value doubles, shrug. I verified that the numbers in the charts are correct, the 75% thing, thus, is wrong. For some, reason coal benefits disproportionately from posts. You can also derive from the data that steel extraction increases by 87.5%. I would conjecture that there is no universally defined benefit to the posts, rather it seems like the devs saw what the rate on the piles was and just like added 1 to it i.e. max employed wood pile is 6.0 wood/hour and the post is 7.0. Simularily, max steel pile is 4.0 and the post is 5.0 . Hope this helps, I've been very frustrated by the lack of actual math discussed about the game.

Another, minor observation is that 85% of 7 is 5.95. In the chart the amount of wood extraction from medium to hard goes 7 to 6. Is this rounding or is this accurate in the game?

To be clear, in my testing I built a gathering post that could only reach one pile of the specified resource, if that turns out to be relevant.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.64.127.210 (talkcontribs) at 20:25, 31 October 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
