I noticed a small issue with the Virus Coding time for a Stealth Virus. I have a Virus Coding Time decrease of 30% as a perk and the Stealth virus normally takes 100 days to complete however 30% off 100 would mean I have 70 days left to code the virus. The game says I have 72 days left.
As far as I know, there doesn't seem to be any extra modifier that I am aware of. It might only be two days but thought it might still be important.
I double checked that what I was seeing was correct by cancelling my creation of a Stealth virus and starting again and the issue is still present.
1. Have 30% Virus Coding Time Perk
2. Have Personal Computer
3. Be able to program Stealth Viruses
4. Open PC and start coding stealth virus
5. See that it says 72 days (28%) not 70 days (30%)
On another note, the Wiki isn't very helpful trying to work out where to post bug reports.
It has never been 30% reduction (like simply counting up 10% + 20% from education).
Much like Life the life formula isn't simply 50% (10 x 5%):
virus coding is calculated like this: 100 days - 10% = 90 days - 20% = 72 days. Which is the correct length you have.
However on our home page we have:
Education: 30% Virus Coding Time
This is just 10% + 20%, should be 28% or in math: (1-(.8*.9))
