Cancelling construction results in loss of supplies

    Cancelling construction of a new Mushroom Farm

    The cost for a new Mushroom Farm is 7400 supplies. Cancelling the construction before it is complete incorrectly shows the message "You will lose some resources if you sell this building because your storage is full." Even when the storage is NOT full, only 3700 supplies are refunded.

    If a refund of only half the supplies is intentional, it is not consistent with the rest of the game. (Edit: It is consistent with cancelling other NEW buildings. Currently only cancelling an upgrade yields a full refund.)

    I assume your storage did not become full when you took it?

    I noticed this last year. Cancelling the construction of any guest race building actually results in the loss of all resources (at least for me, regardless of whether or not storage is full) in the same way as cancelling the construction of any cultural building.

    My storage was only 550k/770k.

    Interesting. I just placed and cancelled a culture building, a workshop and a residence and they all resulted in the same loss of half the resources used to place them with the same message that "your storage is full". Thank you. I had not noticed that before. So the half refund IS consistent with other constructions, but the wording is incorrect.

    I also tested cancelling an upgrade on a workshop and a mushroom farm. Both resulted in a full refund of the resources, so upgrades of buildings still refund the entire amount. I'm not sure why cancelling a new building is penalized when cancelling an upgrade is not.

    I can't address whether it's intention or a bug, but the processes are different. Upgrading is only changing an existing building, while a new building involves a complete replacement of what was there. So the upgrade would be swapping back to the previous, while the cancel of the new building is effectively selling it off (which always carries a 50% penalty. If unintentional, it's possible they're just calling the "selling off" as a shortcut to avoid developing new code.

    Yes, it seems they're treating it the same as selling a building. It even uses the "sell building" label on the proceed button so I believe you are correct.

    Then if it is intentional, it may just be the wording that is incorrect.
