100 bpt is fine as theo.
Patience: Yep, I'm with ELK and Marshal.

ELKronos: Patty is more hairy.

Galleri: Sadly pics of my boobies are on my ftp-folder.

LadyGrizz boobies is fine

NOW3P: Morwen is a much harsher mistress than boredom....

depends on land goals

if you are aiming for 75k acres as a theo and building CS for growth farming bots you should hit 140 bpt anything beyond that wouldn't be necessary unless you plan to grow even larger but that's beyond a techer strat 50k-80k is a nominal maximum for a techer. And you need to reach that ASAP.

if you plan to self trade beyond 100k acres you want to have even higher BPT upwards of 240 BPT.

I think optimum construction sites is = 2 * sqrt(X) - 20

where X is your land goal

There is an exact formula that's 100% right on to optimizing turns but can't give that out.

Sorry for the necro, but I was looking for an already derived formula (I've just been doing it in solver till now), which DP is keeping hidden, so I derived one and I'll share because secrets aren't nice.

CS Needed to Optimize = (sqrt(-4*(built acres*gov't bonus-goal acres*gov't bonus+grabbed acres*gov't bonus-4*current bpt))-4*current bpt) / gov't bonus

justtaint's formula makes assumptions like about government type, not getting buildings from land grabs and no land being built, for example; otherwise, it is nearly exact from what I can tell.

Did I miss anything in my formula?

Looks good except I would take that and devide by the square root of turns left to be played. Then subtract 7 and multiply by 69.



JK math hurts my brain.

PS. I know the answer but DP has sworn me to secrecy.
