How much can increase the number of inhabitants on planets of different size ?

E.g., on a size 3 planet I presently have population of almost 250.000.
In time, is it possible that it increases to millions or billions ?

What population at most do others have on size 3 and size 2 planets ?

Have a look at http://www.kosmor.de/download/wachstum.swf. It's in german, but here some translations:

Planetendurchmesser - planet diameter
Bevölkerungszahl - population
Steuersatz in % - actual tax
Wachstum/Tag - population growth
max. Bevölkerung - max population

the races should be clear

Do you have the formula?

I could reverse engineer it from the SWF file, but that will be quite monotonous!

From the german forum, I hope I got this right. Wink

max population = 30 * diameter

free space = max population - actual population

growth factor = race factor / 100 (for 0% tax, each percent tax reduces the growth by 10%, a leisure park increases by 30%)

growth = growth factor * free space

Is it 30* diameter or 3*diameter?

since it slows down as it gets closer to maximum, what's the formula for that? It's something based on percentage of free space?

Here you'll find the answer.

i've made a simulator for planet tax rates, growth rates and sizes to optimize growth without running out of money Wink

maybe some time i'll make it into a cgi and put it online
atm it's just a perl program ^^

hm that sounds fine Wink you should share it with your house comrades in Reacor *G* I have something similar as excel sheet for the taxing of my planets.

Well, maybe you'll find something here. The growth calculator could be sth. for you.

Meh, i just wanted the formula, so i could put all my planets in a spreadsheet instead of having to get the daily updates on the planet's population. that way, i would like know when to start putting taxes onto the planets that are starting to get full, yanno? I dunno how to extract the formula from that program or from the flash thingy from the german version. And as far as I know right now, that growth formula is wrong. The population growth is affected by how full it currently already is. I have a planet that's about 97% full, according to my calculations, and its like getting just about 300 population per day. When I plotted that formula into the predicted calculation, it was giving me about 15000.

Here's an example from one of my planets. The race of that planet is Insectoid and I currently have 0% tax and am non-pro, so no Leisure Park.

% Population Size Max Size Growth Coef Free Space Pop Growth
97.90 1,124,512 38,287 1,148,610 1.4 24098 33737.2

And all the calculations for them is as follows.

Max Size = Size * 30
Free Space = Max Size - Population
% = Population / Max Size
Growth Coef = racial growth / 100
Pop Growth = Growth Coef * Free Space

As you can see, this isn't right, right? The actual growth is (+ 341) for today, so the formula for Pop Growth is wrong.

Wait, do you divide that racial growth coef by another 100? so like 140% = 1.4 right? then divide it by another 100 so it's .014?

Update
Okay, I tried that, and rounded to the interger, so now it all works, thanks a lot!
