I first noticed on Fearless Blue, Between January 3515 and Febuary 3515, a major drop in income from investment funds.

And then from Octobre to novembre 3422 On little upsillon, Thats when i realised something was wrong.

Let me explain:

An IF makes money and payouts money to the country's population. This line tells you how much your country receive total :

Payout to Workers Last Month :

The money your people receive is then returned to you trough various lines including :

-New Contributions by the Population ( found in IF tab from profit/lost)
-Taxes paid by Citizens
-Health Contributions and Cost
-Education Contributions and Cost

To test it out, spend all the money in your investment fund so that there is none left for payments, you will see all 4 affected negatively, dropping your total profits by around half the usual payouts. Where the rest goes is a mystery but thats not the problem here.

These four lines have been increasing since the recent changes to the way IF work, most notably on the very day they increased. You could see a sharp increase in the graphs to represent the higher payouts going from 0.60% to 0.70% .

The problem is that during the dates i mentionned, my countries had a decline in the benefits from the payouts, and i cannot explain why. I came to the conclusion it was kind of a bug. I waited to see if it would fix itself but it hasen't.

the drop is almost not noticable with countries that have low cash in IF. I wonder if other people with good IF have noticed the same thing around the same date.

Was there stealth changes or im doing something wrong ?

The payout is 0.7% of the total value of the fund.

If the fund value goes down, the amount paid will decline too.
this is independent of the income from dividend which depends on what the portfolio generates in dividends.
this can also change in time.
