But, if i dont use this chance, it cancels it until the next scout finishes its search.
i mean, i sent a scout and other sector's negotiation costs changes. if i use and negotiate with low costs, im good but if i dont, with the next scout i sent, it takes back that oportunity. if i use, it changes another sector of provience to lower cost like 200 coin 100 supply...
it looks like a bug to me becouse it is inconsistent.
Ohh sorry, I must have misread, my reply above doesn't make sense regarding what you were saying.
I've noticed what the same but thought it's meant to work that way --- whenever you explore a new province the negotiation costs reset in the existing provinces. I haven't noticed the costs going back up if I do a second exploration. I'll try and see if I can do that to test it.
Ok, I did some limited testing of this myself and here's what I found.
I started with 1 sector as a baseline, it's negotiation costs were 460/60
after 1 scout - 230/120
after 2 scouts - 80/3
after 3rd scout - 580/80
Now of course I have not tested this on a broad enough scale to determine a pattern, but just wanted to share what I observed so far. Thanks all
