Labor badge issue.

Post  Piratus on Wed Jul 07, 2010 3:04 pm

Anyone else who have this problem?
Here is an image of my labor report from one week ago:

A whooping 54 unused labor hours! More than half of my labor was never used on that day, It would seem all my employees runned out of work to give to me, but fortunatly I work for my own stall (among others) and can see how much labour went to it.

Here is my stalls report from the same day:

Notice how no orders where finished that day, my labor was still needed at the stall. Still I and my stall lost over half of my labor!

I know some loss i to be expected (75% or max is usually a good rule of thumb) but this much is just unaceptable. Does anyone know why not all labor is used, in the first place?

Sorry, I don't really know how stall keeping and labour are supposed to work.

I'll try to answer as best as I can from what I understand.

1. I see 9 unused labour hours, not 54. You have 54 as your total overall. What kind of badge do you have? I'm assuming a deluxe labour badge with that much used. HOWEVER, some hours of labour can be used a day before, your advanced labour hours, so it's possible to have days with odd totals on because you used them a previous day.

From the YPPedia:
You can use up to 24 hours of "advance" labor playing the crafting puzzles or foraging. These hours are then taken from your next 1, 2, or 3 days of labor (for subscriber accounts with 1, 2, or 3 pirates, respectively. Doublooners will always have just 1 day of advance labor)

2. Looking at your stall's labour, my only guesses are the following:

You have a very large order of cbs or a sword or 2 that is taking up a lot of your labour but hasn't been finished yet. (labour always fills up automatically from expert to basic/highest paid to lowest paid.) Meaning it still has some remaining basic labour to finish it off?

Some of it could also be reserve labour?

3. I have read that stalls/shoppes don't work to the full maximum output they can achieve each day because a % of labour is set aside for people actively doing the puzzle. So if you don't have any walk in labour and you aren't puzzling actively yourself each day, then you can expect your maximum to not fill.
