Population Consumption
« on: December 08, 2016, 11:34:58 AM »
Short and skinny,
Does the creation of ground units/ recruitment of new naval crew decrease a colony's total population?

I am aware that you can recruit slave divisions that reduce a population by 10,000 per division, but is there anything like that for standard divisions?

Additionally, are there any other mechanisms that decrease population, besides the standard population decrease from overcrowding and planetary bombardment.

No. Ground units in Aurora are much smaller, albeit a lot more powerfull, than their modern day formations. They usually only number in the few thousands than tens to hundreds of thousands (Battalions being about 750 strong, with people usually making formations of 6-7 battalions).
Additionally, are there any other mechanisms that decrease population, besides the standard population decrease from overcrowding and planetary bombardment.
Adding toxic gas to the atmosphere, removing all the atmosphere, changing the population to another species (but the numbers of those go up), and hunger (only on planets where cost is so high, food requirements are to large for even 100% population on agriculture cant feed them).
Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

While were talking about populations, what is the equation for the population growth?
I do know it falls off as populations grow, so is it simply an equation based on population?

Colony Growth Rate = 20 / (CurrentPop ^ (1 / 3))
