View Full Version : Interior Minister sometimes not gifting harvests?
08-19-2011, 02:24 PM
I recently became the Interior Minister of my little civ (me and a buddy). I expected based on the tooltip for him to get a harvest whenever I pushed the harvest button. That's only happened 2 of the 6 times I've tried since attaining the post.
Is there some hidden condition to this ability working or something?

From what I've heard, and I've seen nothing to contradict this, there are two "dead spots" in each civ which sometimes get a harvest.
So if you are in a civ with just your friend, your expected value would be that only 1/3 of your harvests would get an addition.

2K has recently changed the IM benefits to prevent a 2-person nation exploit, where you just trade harvests back and forth. They did not explain exactly how this was implemented. I can confirm that there was some random aspect that caused harvests not to move at a 1:1 ratio. I can not speak to the exact number of "dead spots," but it is no longer 100% translation.
