Staff

You can hire new employees when you're in an office (Out of the garage) by pressing the 'Fill Position' button.

You can then choose how much you want to spend on searching for staff (By adjusting the budget slider), and how you want to filter your possible staff. (Technology, Design, or Design and Technology)

BudgetEdit

The higher the budget set, the more options you will have for Staff members and the more skilled they will be.

FiltersEdit

  • Complex Algorithms: Technology
  • Game Demo: Design & Technology
  • Showreel: Design

Employee AttributesEdit

Atribute Effects
Technology Increases amount of Technology Bubbles

Design

Increases amount of Design Bubbles
Speed Increases bugfixing and increases amount of regeneration during vacation and how quickly staff starts working after returning.
Research Increases amount of Research Bubbles.
Level Staff gain experience and level up. Reaching certain level thresholds unlocks specialization.

Employee attributes effectsEdit

These effects apply to the following activities :

They can however be modified during the course of a game via Training, and are a requirement for mission specialization and domain specialization

Algorithm for finding new employees:Edit

The available Employee properties depend on the Budget size and Office Level

Budget Ratio:

b – Percentage of Budget Slider (range: 0-1)

Office level factor:

e = (0.8 for Office Level 4 or 0.4 for Office Level 1-3) + (0.2 with 5% chance bonus)
is in range 0.4 - 1

Cost for finding Employee:

(2 + 198*(-0.5*b*b*b*b + 3*b*b*b*b - 3.5*b*b*b + 2*b*b -> rounded down) * 10,000
is in range 20,000- 2,000,000

Number of Employees that will be found:

h = [ 2+3*(b+0.2 -> clamped between 0 and 1) ] -> Rounded down
is in range 1 - 5
Slider percentage Search cost Employee count
0% 20,000 2
14% 80,000 3
47% 440,000 4
80% 1,110,000 5

Employee search duration:

Between 1.5 and 3 weeks.

Budget factor:

BF = b/3+(1-b/3)*(random number between 0 and 1)
is in range 0 - 1


Game calculates Tech and Design complements from MinTech/MinDesign Ratios, result in the form of a table:

MinTech MinDesign TechComplement DesComplement
Complex Algorithms 0.6 - 0 0.4
Game Demo 0.3 0.3 0.3 0.4
Showreel - 0.6 0.6 0.4

Game checks whether famous Employee is found:

R1 - first random number between 0 and 1

R2 - second random number between 0 and 1

BF > 0.5 and R1 > 0.5 and R2 > 0.5 - all conditions must be fulfilled

If the Employee is not famous, the game checks whether a famous Employee can be searched for again (Maximum of 2 times)

(b+0.1 - clamped between 0 and 0.7) => (Randomized Number between 1 and 0)


Afterwards, the game generates a Name, Surname, and Sex.

Percentage of chance between Male and Female:
Male Female

Famous

85% 15%
Not Famous 75% 25%

Parameters:

C=[(5*L -> rounded down) -> clamped between 1 and 5]


The game then sets up the employees properties:

Name

Quality Factor: L = 0.2 + e * BF - Ranges from 0.2 to 1.2 

Design skill focus: D =  2/5*C*(TechComplement + DesComplement*(Random, between 1 and 0))

Tech skill focus: T =  2/5*C - D

Research skill focus: R = 0.2 + e * R1 

Speed skill focus: S = 0.2 + e * R2 

Efficiency: 0.05

Salary: P = [C * 10000 +/- 20% - RandomValue] (Rounded to the nearest thousand)

Famous: F = R1 > 0.5 && R2 > 0.5 && BF > 0.5

Gender: Dependent upon percentage of chance, found above.
