Nice work vexing

I'm sure that:
n number is not connected with combat power but only with:
-unit base power
-unit promotions
-civilization gold amount
-unit HP

and formula for n number is sth like that:
=(( unitbasepower+x)^y) / z
with gold const =0 and only for units without promotions like warrior, sword and long
so we have
unit/power/n level
warrior/6/17
sword/11/44
long/16/75
so
17=((6+x)^y)/z
44=((11+x)^y)/z
75=((16+x)^y)/z

and who will find x,y,z? i think that you can assume that y = 2 or 3 or 4

it is base power only, regular promotions actually have no effect but level and base promotions do. that is if you give a unit free promotions using firetuner, its power doesn't change, but if you give it experience and grant it promotions that way, then the N increases.

the base N for melee units i already gave... (1.15*base combat strength)^1.5

based on your chart, one level seems to grant an additional 25% floored. i don't know the effect of gold, but i'd expect it's not a per unit thing and just is applied after everything else

exactly

You can add new panel to firetuner from this post
http://www.flickr.com/photos/whoward69/5775260621/sizes/l/in/photostream/
it is very useful for testing

there are 3 variable regarding units positive modifiers:
unit experience
unit level
unit promotions

all can be modified separately
pNewUnit:SetExperience(iExperience) -> experience
pUnit:SetLevel(iLevel) -> level

unit:SetHasPromotion(4, true); -->drill I
unit:SetHasPromotion(1, true); -->shock I
unit:SetHasPromotion(30, true); -->march
unit:SetHasPromotion(31, true); -->bliz
unit:SetHasPromotion(78, true); --> +1 move

if you get promotion from experience you automatically change unit level

so

if we want to be accurate we should modified our list to:
-unit base power
-current unit level (from experience)
-starting unit promotions (e.g warrior and jaguar both have 6 base power but different n number. I think that it is because additional promotion that jaguar has at start)
-civilization gold amount
-unit HP

Maybe there is 4th variable that describe units but I dont know it.

unfortunately it is per unit based and every n-level has different gold steps

e.g if you have 10 gold:
warrior score will not change because first gold step for 17 level (first warrior level) is 35 gold
but sward score will by 1 levels up because sword (level 44) has 0, 6 ,21 gold steps

see attached file for more data

only innate promotions and level gained promotions have an impact.
you can run a command like for x=1,100,1 do unit:SetHasPromotion(x, true) end; and the unit's N value does not change. however if you modify the unitFreePromotions table and give a warrior siege 1 or such, its power does increase.

nope. it appears to be floor(n*(1+gold^.5/100))
for a warrior at 35 gold this gives 17 * (1+35^.5/100) = 18.00573, while 34 gold gives 17.99, hence the first step point for a warrior is 35 gold

thanks for the data, made figuring that part out easy.

I love you
How you did it?

Initiate promotion is not a problem because it is constant so it is very easy to check initiate n for all units.

Your gold formula it is what I needed, thank you.

are you sure that this formula for meele unit is ok? e.g.
scout base strength = 4
(1.15*4)^1.5 = 9,86
it should be 9 - OK

warrior base strength = 6
(1.15*6)^1.5 = 18,12
it should be 17
- Err

sword base strength = 11
(1.15*11)^1.5 =44,99
it should be 44 - ok

longsword base strength = 16
(1.15*16)^1.5 =78,92
it should be 78 - ok

it works with:
floor((1.15*strength)^1.5 -0,25)

the formula is not exact, but it's a pretty close approximation. i'd guess there is more flooring that occurs somewhere that is the cause of the slightly off errors; i haven't been able to find the exact formula, though i'm not looking too hard.

the strength : n values that need to fit are
1 1
10 38
20 109
25 153
40 310
50 434
80 880
100 1231
200 3481
201 3507

I think that we dont need this strength formula.
What I want to do is a list of initial n and 1 level n for all units.

What a pity that lua command GetMilitaryMight() uses turn-1 data. I dont know how to refresh it or how to end turn by lua command.

unfortunately level modifier is not a simple 25%

unit / level 0 / level 1 / level 2
MODERN_ARMOR 1158 1425 1610

MONGOLIAN_KESHIK
66 81 91

HELICOPTER_GUNSHIP

level mod = first score * current level^0,3

interesting that nukes and abombs have the same ranking.
looks like abombs are the best deterrent available.

Woot, sounds like another number crunching thread for me

Does that formula actually mean

"If you want to maximize your military rating in demographics, get a tech lead and spawn high tech units?"

Hi guys,

the numbers of the base military might seem to have changed with G+K. (i.e. Warrior now 27 instead of 17) Any idea, how to find out the new values? Is there already a list of the new numbers somewhere?

I've got a simpler question than a reverse engineering of the formula for Soldier count in the Demographics menu.

My question is: when are the Demographic values updated? At the beginning of my turn? At the end of my turn (aka when I've clicked on Next turn)? At some other time?

I'm pretty certain that those values aren't always in sync with the present game state...

I find it interesting that promotions and gold factor into the military score.

In contrast, population and technology do *not* factor in (whereas they did in Civ IV).

it's still the same formulas, the values changed because combat strength changed. unfortunately we never figured out a full formula, but you can approximate by (1.15*base combat strength)^1.5

if you want to find out the values, i think nefliqus just used firetuner to pop the units and the GetMilitaryMight command listed in his post above.

they're definitely not in sync mid turn, but i suspect they update between each players turn.

Ah, thanks a lot for the info, vexing! As I didn't played vanilla Civ5, I didn't realize, that the combat values changed. I think the approximation will already help a lot!

@mintcandy: It is definitely somewhere before your turn starts, at least before the production has been calculated. I.e. when you produce your first scout you can see, that the soldier-value doesn't change, it changes in the next round. Also, when you stumble upon a ruin with weapons, the value doesn't change immediately.
But if your opponents build units, you see it in the turn following theirs.
I have not proven that guess yet, but from what I see in my small tests, it works like this.

This is still best info on the topic.

Anyone has the list of units for BNW?
