    Question Christmas Bakery - Area does not match text

    So in the shop the Bakery is claimed to buff mines in a 16x16 area.

    http://prntscr.com/qhhq1j

    Now when you have one and select it the text says it covers 32x32.

    http://prntscr.com/qhhqbb

    But the area that appears when you mouseover the buff selection highlights a 24x32 area.

    http://prntscr.com/qhhr0k

    So what is the Bakery supposed to cover?

    This is just testing the lvl 1, I have no idea if the other buffs are broken or not.

    I have to very much problem to understand. If i compare how the christmas market works, so maybe only the dark green area is buffed? if i maybe tried to translate what they are saying bakery covers an area of 32x32

    but only 16x16scquares will be buffed? ? 2x32x3+2x26x3? If i described it well in math word, that the dark green area which is highligted when you hover over the buff.

    i'm not sure what the problem is you are having,
    if you count the squares along the outer edges, it is 32x32, so the entire area inside the square (including the lighter and darker green areas) will buff
    any buildings that the bakery will buff will highlight with a blue shield icon, but not any that are already buffed.

    This is helpfull, description is saying 32x32 but also 16x16.
    hat's also noteworthy is the cost of the buffs themselves: they're quite cheap for the powerful output bonuses they provide:

    Upgrade Level
    Buff Name
    Area range
    Buff cost
    Description
    Level 1 Cookies and Milk 32x32, squares 16x16 500 Bronze

    1000 Water Miners: Tripling their output while halving the input taken for 23hours
    Level 2 Secret Santa 22x22, squares 11x11 500 SimplePaper
    500 Tool Food Productions: Tripling their output while halving the input taken for 23hours
    Level 3 Christmas Songs 16x16, squares 8x8 500 IntermediatePaper
    500 GoldOre Weapon Producers: Tripling their output while halving the input taken for 23hours

    So lots confusing text and others had diffent pictures with diffrent dark green area. With the christmas market only dark green area was buff so it could be they wanted to make it difficult to organsise the buff lol?

    It appears to be 2 problems.

    1st is the shop description does not match with what the bakery does
    2nd is if the bakery is near the top edge of the map it goes really weird.

    The problem does not seem to present itself when near the other map edges, only the top.

    Merch description is buff grid RADIUS, hover description is total grid size (2 x buff RADIUS plus 2 for market itself)

    I think it might be something to do with destroyed mountains/rocks. I have a similar issue when locating the bakery between S8 and S9 beneath destroyed mountains. The green zone appears about 32x24 with double width dark border on the bottom left edge and no dark green on top or bottom right edges. No doubt BB will get round to fixing this eventually, but given how long it took them to fix the Observatory for all generals, I wouldn't hold your breath. I haven't had a chance to to test the actual bakery effective area yet - ie whether it matches the displayed green zone or what the green zone should be.

    I have seen the same bug as what WildWizard has posted regarding the effect area when the bakery is near the top of the map.

    I am still confused - the description in the Merchant say
    level 1- 16x16 - affect mines
    level 2 - 10x10 affect food
    level 3 8x8 affect weapons

    but the description in the building as some already said says 32 x 32 and that is what is shown at the map
    So what is right and what is not ? and what is the area of the 2, and 3 buffs if what is written in merchant description is wrong?

    i cant figure out how more will affect cool-down - but as the cool-down will be more than 24 hours - I can see already that this is not for me - I would simply forget to use it.
    If for some reason support feels the need to edit what I wrote, please delete entire post instead, dont put words into my mouth that I never said.
