View Full Version : Don't get it...

It is so tough to find a place for an oil well.... we all know that... but what I donīt get is how the allowed distances between the wells are calculated....
For example: the average distance between the wells its, lets say 12 miles...
But then you see that there are two wells that are only a bit more than 4 miles from one another.... and you ask yourself why the heck can't I get my new well into an area with 15 miles of space all around???????????

How does the game decide if there is enough open space or not ??????

Meanwhile.... cheers :givebeer:

Dunno if it answers your question about varying distances, but it explains how it all works. ;)
