    On my current game My civ is expanding really fast and when I look at my Demograthics It says that my average family has 456.5 Children I was thinking that is kinda funny!

    Wow! I feel like I'm expanding fast if I get 6 children per family. Can you give us some more info about your cities and food, etc...

    well right now every one of my cities is just building setterlers, celabrating we love the king day and every one of those settelers just moves 4 or 5 spaces and builds a city!
    every now and then I build some units to defend the citys!
    and I am taking over two civs at once right now and I guess that the cities I take over Increases the children too!
    so for each turn like 4 cities join my civ!
    but my army that is fighting is starting to decrease in size and die off and I am going to have to really get more defenders in my citys or they may not last for long!

    here is what I have been able to find out on the children per family:

    {I think that it can be worked out for an entire nation, but I used a single city. just transfer NATIONAL size, and food eaten across the naiton etc...)
    city size-foodeaten-foodsurplus-children it makes
    1-2-4-10.0
    2-4-5-8.6
    3-6-5-7.0
    2-2-1-0.7
    1-2-2-6.0
    2-4-4-7.3
    3-6-6-8.0
    3-3-(-3)-(-1.0) size three with 3 food = -1.0 children
    4-8-8-8.4
    5-10-10-8.6
    6-12-12-8.8
    7-14-14-9.0
    12-24-24-10.0
    X=anything
    X-2X-0-2.0
    ^^thats not it BTW

    so, whats the formula here? anyone have any ideas?
    it MUST have a +2 at the end...
    so without the +2 it would be
    2-4-5-6.6
    2-2-1-(-1.3)
    2-4-4-5.3
    5-10-10-6.6
    and others
    ...
    hummm use a graphing calculator??

    I will give this list to my math teacher tomarrow, and see what he can come up with.

    Well 0,5 is bad. It means that your population is decreasing in number
     
  12. No......I MEAN: How can you give birth to a half a child? HOW CAN YOU HAVE 0.5 OF A CHILD?

    It's just an average. Nobody is having half-children, it's just the result of a mathematical formula.

    Somewhere on this planet, a woman is giving birth to a child every 0.7 seconds.
    We've got to find this woman and stop her.

    That's impossible, Vanillacube. You would need hundreds of extra food. The most food you can produce is only like 100 or something.

    It's probably an AI bug. Sometimes I get little things like that. Just last week I had the military advisor tell me that I had 500 marines when I realy only had about ten.

    I thought that women with 29 children was bad.

    But seriously I still think its 4.56 not 456 because that is impossible.

    Yea it is imposible if you dont count the the many enemy cities I take over and the settlers that found new cities along with the cities I already have making people and the We Love The King day!
    I think the equation takes into acount the population and because I had a huge population explosion from all the reasons above ITS POSSIBE in civ only!
