If our citizens help out a little underground instead of tanning themselves on the beach, we'll get more raw materials and they'll get less sunburn.  There's always a need for help down the mines (crystal mine, sulphur pit and quarry), saw mills and vineyards.


Allows: Overloading of resources.
  • You can assign up to 50% extra manpower to work, but each worker, being unskilled, is only 25% (0.25) as effective. (i.e. You can boost resource production by 12.5% [0.125]).
  1. In terms of workers:
    Take the maximum normal amount of workers and multiply it by 1.5 (150% increase) to get your new maximum amount of workers.
  2. In terms of resources:
    Take the normal maximum amount of workers and multiply it by 0.5 (50% or 1/2 increase) to get the maximum added workers and then take that number and multiply it by 0.25 (25% or 1/4) production.
    Which is the new amount of goods that the workers will produce.
