Construction Speed Bonus Edit


The construction speed bonus is almost insignificant for most of the basic structures, reducing the construction time of a Farm or Woodcutter's Camp for example by just 1 second and that of a Temple or University by 2.8 seconds. It becomes somewhat noticeable and important with certain structures like the Fort, which gets it's construction time reduced by as much as 18 seconds - allowing for faster expansion and defenses.

However, the bonus has a fairly large impact on wonder construction times, especially that of mid-to-late game wonders. For example, IconAWat Small Angkor Wat or IconVersailles Small Versailles both receive a reduction by 47 seconds on their base construction time, while the late game IconSCollider Small Super Collider and IconSProgram Small Space Program get their base construction time reduced by a whopping 1 minute and 20 seconds!
