If the text
This reduction only applies once per Commoner, even if he or she owns more than one Precision Lens.
exists in the subrule “Precision Lens”, replace it with
No attempt to create an Invention is subject to more than one reduction of resource spending from Precision Lenses; instead, the reduction from all but one Precision Lens owned by the same Commoner is ignored.
It’s actually really hard to word this unambiguously! You can’t calculate things as if only one Precision Lens existed, in case the cost of inventions somehow in the future depends on the composition of other inventions. This proposal will only have an effect if the previous fix proposal on this subject passes, on the bases that otherwise the text to replace will not be present.
