I've noticed quite a few times that in Kittens Game, at seemingly random times, maximums I used to have go down. I have noticed this in conjunction with reloading the page (presumably an update happened), but I've also noticed it without reloading the page.
Most recently I noticed that my oil maximum went down to about 45K, but this is after I've already made a lunar outpost, which requires 50K (so .. at least I'm sane).
Can the game reload itself automatically for updates? Are there certain things that trigger maximums on certain resources to decrease? What could be happening?
