This is something I had figured out, but, still, calculating the time would be helpful.

I also noticed that the little window that opens when you hover over the research speed, it will tell you how many things per hour (I have NO IDEA what to call it... bottles of science?) it is taking.

I realize that the less bottles you need, the less time it takes. That is a no-brainer. I want to calculate the time so I can budget them in my daytime schedule BEFORE I start them.

For instance: It is taking 422/hour for my Colonization Science which is 8245/20000. I have to wait until tomorrow afternoon until it is ready. Fine.

BUT, what I want to know, STILL, is how to figure out, prior to starting the "study", how long it takes for one science to be completed. What is the formula for this?

For instance:

* It takes X hours for Y Science (Y=Bottles?) with One Lab at Level One

* If you have Two Labs at Level One, what would the formula be to figure out the time?

* If I have Ten Labs at Level Five, what would the formula be to figure out the time?

If I have the formula for the first statement, and the percentages that each upgrade adds to one lab as it progresses, I can figure it out.

OBVIOUSLY, there is a formula, or there wouldn't be a timing system at all... so, come on developers, let's have it!

I will have to post this in the admin page, I guess... even though I feel they should be reading the forum...

ok, off to eat dinner
