Law Effects (Not what you think)

5 posts in this topic

Ok, I'm going to try to word this as best as I can without sounding flippant....

 

Can we please try to make sure that law effects have at least a modecum of thought behind them?

 

I mean, I get that law effects need to have negatives to balance against the positives etc. But some of these law effects are just downright silly. Take for instance the most recent law I passed "Windfall Tax"

Before:

Population:   606,884
Birth Rate:   18.65
Death Rate:   3.00
Immigration Rate:   2.57
Growth Rate:   5451 per day
Life Expectancy:   69.19
Net Income per Day:   $48,247,723.93

Personal Tax Rate:   45.00%
Corporate Tax Rate:   100.00%
Avg. Income:   $211.32
Gov Satisfaction:   73.51%
Land Area:   700.00 sq km
GDP per Capita:   $70,476.69 ($42,771,175,538.42 total)

Crime Rate:   5.46%

Literacy Rate:   89.25%
Disease Prevalence:   12.98%
Population Happiness:   51.81%
Unemployment Rate:   8.69%

 

 

And here's the after. I'll highlight the ones that really took me for a shock.

 

After:

Population:   606,885
Birth Rate:   18.65
Death Rate:   3.00
Immigration Rate:   2.57
Growth Rate:   5453 per day
Life Expectancy:   69.17

Net Income per Day:   $48,715,984.55

Personal Tax Rate:   45.00%
Corporate Tax Rate:   100.00%
Avg. Income:   $213.50
Gov Satisfaction:   73.48%
Land Area:   700.00 sq km
GDP per Capita:   $71,203.16 ($43,212,130,618.10 total)

Crime Rate:   5.48%

Literacy Rate:   89.24%
Disease Prevalence:   13.02%

Population Happiness:   51.53%
Unemployment Rate:   8.69%

 

 

So... somehow by passing the Windfall Tax, Life Expectancy dropped, my people got stupider, and are suddenly more susceptible to disease.

 

Negative effects on stats like that just don't make sense. Especially for a financial law.

I may have put a little bit of thought into what each law does.

 

Which is why the Windfall Tax doesn't directly affect Life Expectancy, Literacy or Disease Prevalence.

 

You know that all your stats are interdependent. You must have been sitting near a tipping point to cause changes on those stats.

What else would have caused it? The 1 person that immigrated to my nation caused all the changes?

Please refer to the Dev Watercooler post re: law mechanics. Every law active in your nation has its effectiveness modified by how closely it resembles other laws your nation has passed. Passing the Windfall Tax likely moved your average closer to or further from a law(s) that affected those stats, which in turn affected how much of an effect those laws have on your nation.
