Research Station does not benefit from Light

Let me know if I missed something or got anything wrong

This is surprising, I've been told anything with a progress bar benefits from lighting, even showers. Did she have the "well-lit workspace" buff in her tooltip? I'd check myself but I have nothing to research in my game.

Ay, she did.

Thanks for checking. I've been avoiding light on my research to prolong them and increase the amount of experience gained. No need anymore.

Honestly I've never noticed.  I put the research station and super computer in the light from the portal.

wait! but sweepers and bathrooms are affected though. Either patches or more testing needs to be done and I opt for more patches on this one.

Indeed, since the lit workspace buff is displayed, this is definitely a bug. Will report. No idea, why I didn't pay closer attention to the status window before :confused:

Lit workspace is only an interaction between a "duplicant" and light. It doesn't make sense to think of getting the buff under those situations a bug just because they are standing near machinery that may not benefit from it.

Why couldn't Klei just release a list for us when they added this feature?

Klei: We've come up with something new for you guys...now figure it out.

That's half the fun... for certain types of damaged people. (:

@Yalp

Supremely helpful post and saves! (edit: oops, misremembered the post! supremely helpful post nonetheless!)

Thanks very much, should be fixed in the next patch!

I find that lots of alcohol may help ;)

I might be asking the wrong question, but did you make sure the dupe in question did NOT have the buff while testing without light ? 

 

I've noticed that dupes often maintain the buff, even in pitch dark situations.

Catalina only gets the buff when researching in a lit workplace. She never did any work before either test. Both tests were started fresh, from the same save. She did not have the buff in the "no light" test.

I added the save to the initial post just in case... :)
