I don't know if its a good thing or bad, but I think I found a bug/exploit. I am researching wealth, as you know its very long research time. Well I was thinking if I switched over to some of the low level ones I could whip those out with my 16 researchers. I goto change and notice the percentage bar full up with like 300% next to it. Im like okay whatever, refresh. Then wealth is back to counting down, but has more time. Now Im like wtf. So I check the library, and low and behold the one I just changed to (military) just got the first two finished, instantly. To verify this, I moved to science, first one was done and most of the next. Then I moved to seafaring, and boom first one was done. The only downside to all this, is that wealth has been taking forever. So I don't think there is any gain in time, other than I get a bunch of quick ones faster. Sorry superman, I thought I would have had my resources sooner to trade with you, but as you can tell from the above, its taken longer than expected.
