I've maxed out all the advised improvements and I have 51k citizens and 50 improvements. Should I start buying border walls?

Info:

- Improvements: Banks: 5, Churches: 5, Clinics: 5, Factories: 5, Foreign Ministries: 1, Harbors: 1, Hospitals: 1, Intelligence Agencies: 5, Labor Camps: 5, Police Headquarters: 5, Schools: 5, Stadiums: 5, Universities: 2,

- Environment: 3 stars

- 51,821 Working Citizens

- Infrastructure: 4,999.99

This is based on having a 5-star environment already (minus the GRL, which is not affected by borderwalls):

A borderwall gives:

+2 happiness = +$4 at base = +$8.304 with all the improvement effects.

-2% citz, which basically means a 2% drop in income.

So a borderwall is useful if +$8.304 income, outperforms -2% income.

The break even point for this lies at $415 gross citizen income (8.304 / .02)

So if your gross per citizen income is lower than $415, then a borderwall will give you benefits since the absolute increase of $8.304 outperforms the 2% drop.

For subsequent borderwalls you can do the same math, replacing the 2happiness/2% with 4,6,8 or 10.

Most people find that by the time they have maxed out on the other improvements, 2 or 3 borderwalls is a good amount that still give benefits, and this goes down as they get more Wonders which push the income to the break even point.

Also: If you do not have a environment score of 1+GRL, then the borderwall also gives a increase for this. Since 1 environment score translates to .4 happiness you can do the same sums above with 2.4 happiness instead of 2. I'm too lazy to do the math now, but I believe this puts the break even around $497

I thought each additional environment point translates to -0.8 Happiness

could be, I wrote the .4 from memory and that might have been wrong. The math stays the same, but might have a different outcome (and as stated, if your environment score is already set to " 1 + GRL ", then this effect doesn't make a difference, and the break-even is $415)

Isn't the income percent adjustment for all the improvements 82%?

5 Banks * .07

1 Foreign Ministry * .05

1 Hospital * .01

2 Universities *.08

5 Schools *.05

Yes, i see that -1 happiness does take $4.15 off of the income.

The question is why?

The answer is $2.00 * 1.35 * 1.05 * 1.01 * 1.16 * 1.25 = 4.1518575

So the perecnt is 107.593%.

No, the same ones stack, different ones multiply:

5 Banks * .07 = 1.35

1 Foreign Ministry * .05 = 1.05

1 Hospital * .01 = 1.01

2 Universities *.08 = 1.16

5 Schools *.05 = 1.25

1.35 * 1.05 * 1.01 * 1.16 * 1.25 = 2.07592875

Well, I for one like border walls. Like what theBFG said, the -2% cit. is balanced out with a income increase. Personally though, I like them for the environment boost. My environment was kind of bad before I got a border wall. Also, buy .01 infra.

Dont buy the .01 infra -_-
