But yet I have no idea, where you want to calculate squares. Would it not be sufficient to just multiply the random number by a "probability correction factor" of - lets say - 1.1 or 1.2? I don't know exactly what you mean but I beleive you meant to increase the random number we start to subtract from. this could lead to no immovable being plant at all as we might never get below zero. So here is what I meant with using squares: Instead of adding 70+10+10+10 +10+10 It would fit better to have summed up 4900+100+100+100+100+100. this results in havin a probability of 4900 / 5400 approx 90% for the 70 % tree instead of 70 / 120 approx 58%.

Calculating the squares of course would do, too - and seems very reasonable. But it means more extra-work, as you have to change both the probability and the random number. To clarify: I meant the one that you called the third step we create a random number in range 0 to sum of probabilites. I suggest making it 'create a random number in range 0 to (0.9*sum of probabilites)'.

To clarify: I meant the one that you called the third step in fact we just would need to square the values while putting them into the sorted list. Rest of the code would be untouched, as the random is just a rest of a division by the sum of all stored probs. we create a random number in range 0 to sum of probabilites. I suggest making it 'create a random number in range 0 to (0.9*sum of probabilites)'. that would result in an 11% increase of the prob of the best tree. In our example 65% instead of 58%.

You could even make the number depending on tribe, win-condition, lunar phase or whatever Top Quote hessenfarmer Joined: 2014-12-11, 23:16 Posts: 1129 One Elder of Players Location: Bavaria Posted at: 2020-01-12, 20:42 while working on the amazons I found out that frisians have significantly less hammers in starting condition HQ then other tribes. (5 in comparison to at least 11) so i would vote to increase them to at least 10, cause these shaortge limits builders which are essential for a good economy grow up.

Although there may still be hidden problems and balöancing issues I beleive they have reached a state of maturity that would allow us to do so. Opinions?
