Inspired by the show MythBusters, I decided that why not test some in-game myths as well? I'll publish the results here.

Myth 1: Overall Resource Base production will slow down because the lower-leveled collectors will fill up

To be tested.

Hypothesis: the level 2 collectors will fill up quickly, so I can test this easily. Basically I will check the total production after 1 hour and after 8 hours, because the level 2 collectors in RBs fill up in a little under 7 hours, if it fills and stops producing we should see the resources we get after 8 hours be slightly less than 8x than that of resources gained from RBs in 1 hour.

Data table: 

Time Amount when collectors aren't slowed down Experimental amount 1 Experimental amount 2
After 1 hour 8,540 TBD TBD
After 8 hours 68,320 67,478 TBD
After 12 hours 102,480 98,566 TBD


Side calculations:

Level 2 collectors fill in: 6 hours 54 minutes 17 seconds

Time that level 2 collector isn't filling up after 8 hours: 1 hour 5 minutes 43 seconds

Time that level 2 collector isn't filling up after 12 hours: 5 hours 5 minutes 43 seconds

Production per hour of 2 level 2 collectors = 420

Resources lost by not collecting level 2 collectors after 8 hours: ~460

Resources lost by not collecting level 2 collectors after 12 hours: ~2140

Level 3 collectors fill in: 9 hours 43 minutes 20 seconds

Time that level 3 collector isn't filling up after 12 hours: 2 hours 16 minutes 40 seconds

Production per hour of 2 level 3 collectors = 720

Resources lost by not collecting level 3 collectors after 12 hours: ~1640

Total Resources lost by not collecting after 8 hours = ~460

Total Resources lost by not collecting after 12 hours = ~3780

Theoretical amount after 8 hours = 67,860

Theoretical amount after 12 hours = 98,700
