Does specialist get doubled by any policy cards?

    I know CS bonuses to districts count as adjacency bonuses, and can get doubled by the +100% adjacency bonus cards.

    Is the same true for specialists working slots in districts? Or does their output get counted as 'building' and doubled by those cards (for holy site/campus/commercial) or even added to the regional bonus for industrial districts?

    If it's no to both, that might be some little way too boost them.

    No one knows the answer to this? I guess I'll have to do some experimenting ;)

    There are no cards which boost specialists. Their yields count as worked tiles, not adjacency. Even though they are kind of lame I still end up using them sometimes as I pack cities as densely as possible almost always and can sometimes run out of good tiles to work at the 7-10 pop mark. Harbor specialists in particular (2 gold and 1 science) can be useful and are preferable to a 1 cog tile, if you don't need food, imo.

    There are no cards that boost there, there just there as a population sink.

    actually +100% do not count for CS.

    Have you tested it since the new patch and now it's not working ? Because before the latest patch it's been proven to be true

    No. It just adds numbers on your districts, but the double policy only doubles the part of the original adjacant bonus (and Austrlian UA bonus), but not the part of CS bonus. Both pre-patch and after-patch.

    I'm fairly certain at least earlier on they did double, so maybe it got patched out at some point. I just double checked in my current game and they don't seem to be doubling with the policy.

    There's no patch these policies double the CS bonuses.
