Improvements

Improved woodcutters



**

  • Woodcutters now plant their own trees at a slow rate. [one tree every 4h]
  • Their production depends on the number of adult trees. A tree takes close to 4h to become an adult.
  • Placing a woodcutter’s hut close to already existing trees gives a boost to the building as it uses them as adult trees.
  • When woodcutter's huts are destroyed, their trees stay on the moon.
  • Woodcutter maximum productivity depends on the free space around them, when building the expected efficiency is displayed.**

Trees are planted by woodcutters

_

New pollution system



**

  • Pollution levels rise depending on the ratio between produced pollution (buildings + citizens) and dissipation (trees and pollution scrubbers)
  • A saturation system is used for pollution, which means that the higher the pollution is, the harder it becomes for it to increase.
  • Abundant trees on a moon result in a better dissipation value.**

Pollution will impact the moon's look

**

  • Pollution has a visible impact on the moons. If it rises too high, dirt will appear on the ground and buildings.**

Pollution increase citizen consumption

**

  • Citizens become angry and consume from 80% to 200% of their normal rate depending on their happiness (which is directly linked to the moon's pollution).**

_

  • SR-1653 [DEV] Pollution increase citizen consumption
    _

Pollution reduces building production

**

  • Buildings will be less efficient when pollution is high and citizens are unhappy. This penalty can go up to 50%.**

_

  • SR-1651 [DEV] Pollution reduces building production
    _

Pollution is displayed under the moon's name

  • SR-1612 [GD] Add a pollution dissipation value

Pollution is generated by citizens

**

  • Citizens pollute according to the level of their house.**

_

  • SR-1648 [DEV] Houses are generating pollution according to their inhabitants
    _

Pollution is generated by production buildings
