I encountered a problem and can't find the solution.
BP = (Ln (Flats) x (Flats)^2) + (Flats) is the formula for population on 5% taxed planet
I have a planet (Kashyyyk II) which has different values...
1825 flats (if my calculation is right) should give 25 012 605 citizens,
but system shows 25 718 677
Maybe difference is not much, but when calculating/designing big TPs it may be much higher and signifficant. Any1 could check if programmed formula is same as shown in the rules or I made a mistake somwhere?
Same problem I have with morale: system shows 0.9716 and I got 0.945...
Could you check if all facilities are listed in all right "Each x" groups ? (crime & civ.levels are OK)
I signaled it as a bug some times ago, and if I remember well, the difference is due to a factor related to morale in the population equation, that is available (or was) in a totally different part of the rules.
As for you morale, if system is different than planet, it's normal, unless you only have one planet in the system.
