It is still unclear to me if those are net versus gross gains, esp re Hess (as the second SH selection). Another thing to factor is that Hess basically is a 300pp choice, as it mandates a second minister choice when he leaves. So it really may be a wash after all?Doesnt matter much.
To draw a graph you have to calculate PP income.
And to calculate PP income you have to take stabiliity into account because it influences it.
With 50% stability the values are: Normal: +1.3 Borman +1.6 B+Hess: +1.9
With 84% stability the vaules are: Normal: +1.436 Borman +1.736 B+Hess: +2.036
With 100% stability the values are: Normal: +1.5 Borman +1.8 B+Hess: +2.1
Difference is always 0.3
[Formula: PP Bonus in % = (Stability in % - 50) / 5 ]
[PP Gain is 2 Base, 25% Adolf H. , +Bonus from Stability +Bonus from Advisor -1 from Focus -0.2 from MEFO]
[Example 84% Stab, Bormann: 2*(1+0.25+0.15+(84-50)/5/100)-1-0.2 = 1.736]
@DaleDVM says here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/lets-talk-germany.1163659/post-25314418 :
"the two generate an extra 447 PP by Sept 1 1939. That is 3 extra ministers before the historical date of the war vs a player who doesn't use them!"
In the calculation I used for my chart I get +448.8 PP from both Bormann and Hess compared to none of them.
The calculation seems to be correct (?)
But, I think , the point in is this: Dale says:
"Place them both and do it early. There are literally no other ministers that are vital in the beginning of 1936. "
In this thread the argument is made that early Free Trade and War Economy is WAY more important than having great PP income. I'm not sure about that and it is a little bit subjective but the case of @el nora and @Corpse Fool are making is very strong.
Free trade (I say export focus is better bc of need to import aluminum in 38) is arguable. Early war economy not as much and can be argued is a bit of an exploit. Early war economy gives bonus to mil factories which I think we all agree are best defered to Spring 38.
