Hi, everyone!

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but in the housing model data I found that there are three values that are not explained. These are W, X and Y. They are the last three on the line. Does anyone know what they mean?

I could have be mistaken, but I know well how to edit the values.

There are actually 4 undocumented columns. It's been a long time since I looked at the model files. As far as I remember, columns w, x, y and z are comments (that is, changing them does not affect the game). I assume the numbers in these columns are ones that the designers found useful as they balanced the game. Here is what they appear to mean.

"W" is the maximum population of the house multiplied by the tax rate multiplier (column T) and divided by 2. This is the monthly tax that would be paid by a fully occupied house if the tax rate were 100%.

"X" is blank for 1x1 houses. For larger houses, it describes the size of the house (e.g. "2 by 2").

"Y" is the maximum number of squares occupied by the house. 1x1 houses have a 4 in this column, which is the number of squares they occupy if they merge to form a 2x2 house.

"Z" is the prosperity value (column R) divided by column Y. I'm not sure why the designers found this value useful. Calculation of prosperity needs to take the population into account.
