Farming and focus..

#1 Post by hamfan » Thu May 03, 2012 3:34 pm

Hi. I just signed up and I've got a FO game going on right now, going on pretty well so far.
The problem I have with the focus system is on my colonies target farming always drops to zero when I change it from farming, and so makes it a bit hard to get any efficient production or research running as it takes AGES to get to the techs that automatically raise target production/research. Help?

We're in the middle of radically changing how farming works, so the answer to your problems depends on exactly what version you are playing.

Unless you meant 4865, you're several hundreds behind the latest.

In that case, that's how focuses are supposed to work in all versions.
You gotta choose one for each planet. If you switch a focus, the planets population changes starts phasing out the old production and working on the new stuff. However some buildings and techs give you a little "free" production of different kinds.
