If our citizens help out a little underground instead of tanning themselves on the beach, we'll get more raw materials and they'll get less sunburn.  There's always a need for help down the mines (crystal mine, sulphur pit and quarry), saw mills and vineyards.


Allows: Overloading of resources.
  • You can assign up to 50% extra manpower to work, but each worker, being unskilled, is only 25% (0.25) as effective. (i.e. You can boost resource production by 12.5% [0.125]).
  1. In terms of workers:
    Take the maximum normal amount of workers and multiply it by 1.5 (150% increase) to get your new maximum amount of workers.
  2. In terms of resources:
    Take the normal maximum amount of workers and multiply it by 0.5 (50% or 1/2 increase) to get the maximum added workers and then take that number and multiply it by 0.25 (25% or 1/4) production, which = Original production * (50% * 25% = 12.5% ) = Original production * .125 equals how much goods they will produce.

Total score & Scientists

All researches give you 0.02 Scientists points for every Research small spent on any of them.  This is added to your Total score points.

  • This means that you will earn 1 Scientists & Total score point for every 50 Research small you spend.

Levels of research

You will earn 4 Levels of research points for every research you complete, no matter how many  Research small are required to complete it or which group it belongs to.
