Unopened hospital does not compensate staff!

Bit of a fun one. Before clicking the "open hospital" button, your doctors are not salaried. Meaning, you have plenty of time to put them through training and to do research for free. 

CS Edit: Link to the screenshots showing the problem. 

Version:
The version number does not show in the games menu. A bug in itself i guess? Anyways, latest version on Xbox gamepass
Platform:
Windows PC
Store:
Gamepass

Hey Sajh, thank you for reporting this! Could you please provide me with screenshots or a short video showing the problem so I can forward it to our team for investigation? Thanks!

Sure thing. Attaching a few screenshots. 

bug1.jpg

shows a hospital with a level 3 doctor, training room and staff room. 

bug2.jpg

shows that ive now trained the doctor to level 5, without opening the hospital

bug3.jpg

shows that as the hospital has not been opened, no salaries are being paid. 

bug4.jpg

shows that i can also do research without opening the hospital. 

As a result, i could theoretically train a whole bunch of doctors up to level 5 and finish all research projects before opening the hospital.


Expectation would be either that salaries are being paid even before the hospital opens (i think this is what they do in theme hospital/two point), or that training/research cannot be done before hospital opens. 


Not a game breaking bug by any means, but probably not working as planned :)

Thank you for the screenshots Sajh! I will forward all that information to our team so they can check if it is something they had in mind with the design. I will let you know as soon as I get an answer!

I have news from the team - What you described is an intended feature. Our developers decided to leave it out in the game as it is not something game-breaking and takes a lot of time in-game to achieve. So enjoy these boosts!
