    Question about orc/human gold mining.

    In the patch notes, it says v1.13 had this change:



    - We have made modifications to how gold is mined. Although these changes are
    somewhat difficult to describe, the effect is that in almost all cases, 5
    peons are required for an Orc or Human to mine a gold mine at maximum
    efficiency (assuming the town hall equivalent is as close as possible).

    Does anyone remember pre-1.13?

    Was it possible to get 100% efficiency with only 4 workers? If so, how?

    Why does this matter? We are at patch 1.24e, I guess there are no way to get back to the way made in 1.13, since it should be changed by this patch, heh?

    I am working on a hack. The hack ends up making the workers move similarly to the way they did pre-v1.13.

    Normally, for all races in v1.13+, you get gold this fast:
    1 worker = 120 GPM
    2 workers = 240 GPM
    3 workers = 360 GPM
    4 workers = 480 GPM
    5 workers = 600 GPM

    My best results with the hack:
    1 worker = 170 GPM
    4 workers = 570 GPM
    5 workers = 590 GPM



    With 4 workers, I can't seem to get above 570 GPM, though. That's only 90% efficiency.


    That makes it nearly useless. If I can't get 100% efficiency even with all buildings in the best possible spots, then I would need to build 5 workers for every mine anyway.

    well here is the thing. If you have good micro u can mine properly with 4 in the newest patch. Everytime the worker deposits his gold quickly click him and send him to the gold mine. He will move his regular speed and by continally doing that until u have 5 workers. U will be mining gold like you have 5 workers present.

    This is what I do, and I can't seem to get 100% efficiency (600 GPM) doing this.

    Even with perfect micro, it's still only 550-580 GPM.

    Is there a trick to getting 600 GPM?
