Hi,

Because I have less time in the next few months I wanted to automate more in WZI. I upgraded my 'Idle Time' to 150 (plus the initial 2 hours that's 4,5 hours in total) and turned on 'Auto-Conquer' (50%) and 'Auto-Upgrade Army Camps' (35%).

I noticed a few things when I return to the game after 4,5 hours of idle time:
- When Auto-conquering a mine with a new ore, the count of this ore starts at 0.
- When Auto-upgrading occurs on my army camps, sometimes multiple of them on the same camp, suddenly I can conquer many territories in the few minutes after.

I'm not sure about this, but it seems that the 'Auto'-advancements are executed when I start the game. Meaning that I'm missing out on resources/armies that those territories/camps generate.

For example: I'm 30 minutes away from auto-conquering a mine. When I return to the game after 4,5 hours, I expect to have conquered the mine and have 4 hours worth of ores from this mine. But instead it seems that the mine is conquered and starts generating ores the moment I start the game again.

Maybe I'm wrong and is it just a coincidence, but I'm curious about the mechanics behind the 'Auto'-advancements.

Based on what I've seen, I suspect that when you return to idle, it runs idle at warpspeed from the time you left to the time you opened idle again. (or for your max idle time, depending on which is the shortest)
So while it might seem that the auto upgrades only work when you are online, in the end you should have the same amount of progress, regardless of if you were on- or offline for the duration of your idle time.

Automatic Whatnots do NOT do things while game is closed. You can see this easily if you are playing Multilevel. By turning it on, and then back off, while on "level A". Then switch to " level B" you will see nothing happened since you never opened "level B" while Automatic Whatnots was turned on.

Yeah, it seems that when returning to idle it runs on warpspeed, so everything should work as expected. But still, just a few minutes ago, I return to idle, auto-conquer a mine with nickel (an ore I didn't have) and the count of nickel starts at 0.

This might be a coincidence, maybe the mine was conquered in the last seconds of 'warpspeed time', but it happened to me several times.
