How is the 6% for moon colony citizens calculated?


Recommended Posts

Stores 6% of citizen count at time of purchase




My moon colony is currently providing me 6.29% citizen boost. I have 230,175 total citizens, and after relocating my moon colony it has 13,622 citizens.


This results in a percentage increase of 13,622 / (230,175 - 13,622) = 0.0629.


I'm not complaining but I'm curious how it is actually calculated.

are you sure you didn't set it while your pop was higher? Moving it and resetting it are different things iirc.


I literally reset it this morning when moving my stuff for Feb after realizing it was only about 4.5% prior.

This is just a hunch, but it might have been using that 1.045 (ie. your total population including your moon colony) when determining your new 6%.


1.045 x 0.06 = 0.0627.


If that's the way it works, it seems like a bug.


Ah, I bet that's what it is.


When I was looking at this, I never thought to check that calculation to figure out where the 0.0627 came from..
