Rooms Efficiency

Thanks to TunderProsum, we can lay out a general idea of how you can increase room’s efficiency in Fallout Shelter.

If there are more trainees in a training room, all dwellers will increase their individual training speed. Each trainee increases around 1.9% speed.

Training time is the set of triangle numbers N = {1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45…}. Level up your lowest skilled follower at any time, pushing one follower from 9-10 will take 45 times as long as levelling a follower from 1-2 skill whilst the benefit (in resource rooms at least) is the same.

Both for Power Plants and Nuclear Plants, double rooms are better than triple or single rooms. Moreover, output per resource is not affected by the skills of the workers in the room if you only log-in to collect resources.

1 worker of 6 agility will take the same time to produce an output as 2 workers with 3 agility each.

In addition to this, vault happiness affects the resource cycle time and training time. Furthermore, medical rooms and science rooms should be kept single during the early game or double at max.

Lastly, do note that skill in any room is only applicable if you play the game for prolonged duration. In case you are a player who logs-in, collects stuff, and leaves for at least 20 minutes, workers and skill in a room will have null impact on your output.
