The research "Overload" results!

Post  Guest on Sat Jun 25, 2011 7:36 am

Greetings once again.

With a great help of maths, programming and you mates, I've finally reached the results of the question that I started as a topic here in forums.
I do not like to speak long intros, so here's just the results which (I hope) will help you all further in game:

Overloading makes more profit with these specific building levels (mines and mills only until lvl. 40) and unit selling costs (or greater):

Quarry/Vineyard/Sulphur Pit/Crystal Mine (any level - the bigger, the better):

Luxury unit price on market (e.g. when selling) (further: up): 11
Production building (e.g. stonemason, alchemist's tower etc.) (further: pb): 5+

From 0,25 to 1056,25 gold per hour (further: gph)

____________________

UP: 10
PB: 11+

From 0,50 to 769,45 gph

____________________

UP: 9
PB: 17+

From 0,15 to 481,66 gph

____________________

UP: 8
PB: 26+

From 0,40 to 195,86 gph

____________________

Saw Mill:

UP: 11
PB: 5+

From 0,38 to 809,36 gph
____________________

UP: 10
PB: 11+

From 0,75 to 589,60 gph
____________________

UP: 9
PB: 17+

From 0,22 to 369,84 gph
____________________

UP: 8
PB: 26+

From 0,60 to 150,08 gph

____________________

Well, that's it! If you have any questions, feel free to drop them here.

Enjoy! Smile


P.S. Forgot to mention: orange numbers (gph) represent the amount of gold per hour which you gain if you overload mill/mine compared with no overload (gph overload minus gph without equals gph shown in this topic. In other words - why and when you should overload and how much more from now you will gain if you do so.

just tell us what levels our mines should be and what level our bonus productions should be to get the minimal benefits, then from there we can figure it out.

Ah... you see, I would have written that much easier, but it all depends on the price you use to sell your gained resourced, theoretical of course.

Mines/Mills don't matter. Blue numbers are the minimum production building at the given cost of one resource unit...

I think that the best way to clear this up is...upgrade all production buildings like the stone mason to the highest level for the best money.

Like Ming said if you factor in building bonus levels it throws everything off. I think a 1:1 ratio is good because the market is unpredictable *cough* 2008 *cough*

Ah... well, it's seems quite obvious to me.. the main question here was - is it worth overloading for bigger profit or not...

I don't see the value in overloading, even with all the research you've done into it. You know that most of the time you don't use all of your resources and those resources are the first to go into the market in my towns. Also, because an offer might be up for several days, you could also be loosing money. Because time is money, right? More time spent, more money spent.
