Question Bugs in slow Pacing? v1.029

While examining the worldModifiers.gdb Database file, I noticed what seem to be bugs in the xp penalty for Slow and Very Slow pacing. The in-game text says that Slow and V.Slow should have a 15% and 20% penalty. However, they're actually defined as:

Quote:
ModifiedNumberMultExperience -0.1765
ModifiedNumberMultExperience -0.25
Are these typos/bugs, or are the text files wrong, or are there some other mathematical modifiers I'm unaware of? Fast and V.Fast are defined as .15 and .2 as expected.

These are in v1.029 (MacOS standalone game -- not Steam)

In general, in our games negative multipliers use this formula:
1 / ( 1 + -mult)
so with the slow modifier
1 / ( 1 + - -0.1765 ) = 1 / ( 1 + 0.1765 ) = 1 / 1.1765 = 0.85 (15% penalty)
