DB-Reference : DiffDB : TechCostKnownDeduction  

Directory: calltopower2/ctp2_data/default/gamedata

Deducts a percentage of an advance's cost based on % of total civs in the game that a civ may know that already have the advance.

Type: int Belongs to structure: Difficulty level
Valid values: 0.0 - 1.0 Belongs to substructure:
Refers to textfile: Belongs to element:


TechCostKnownDeduction 0.3

Out of the 8 civs alive (including you), you've met 2 that have the archery advance:

(0.3 * 2) / 8 = 7.5% deduction of archery cost.

In the same example if all civs had archery AND you had met them all, the deduction would be:

(0.3 * 7) / 8 = 26.25% deduction of archery cost.

The deduction can never be the full 30% because you yourself cannot simultaneously have the advance and be researching it.
