why does the slow down cost such a large penalty in yield??
I have lvl 9 fertile fields and all the books for corn even the Mayan book
Why after paying all that gold is the penalty so high??
13 corn ? really !!
this is not good value for real money spent.
sorry for the thread Hijack but it feels related to what the OP posted

I think there's either a bug or a miscommunication somewhere: it doesn't seem possible to reduce the penalty time by planting crops without edge plants. The time elapses like any other time in the world: no speedups, no slowdowns. I haven't been able to reduce it with any plant, no matter how short or long its growing time; once a field has say, 8h penalty, it literally means 8h, no more no less.Maybe someone has counted wrong and then spread this rumor, or was there something in the update info that was worded badly?For example if someone has a 8h penalty, plants corn, and harvests it after 5 minutes, the penalty time has decreased by 5 minutes because corn took that 5 min to grow - but the penalty would have gone down even without planting anything. Maybe they thought the crop itself reduced the time and reasoned that it works to speed up the penalty?So far, I've found that nothing does. If you have an 8h penalty, it's going to take 8h. You can do whatever you want with those 8h; plant anything, don't plant anything, it's still going to be 8h.
