OVERCROWDING_NO_GROWTH_THRESHOLD = 1.5 # At this amount of overcrowding, growth stops entirely OVERCROWDING_DECLINE_THRESHOLD = 2.0 # At this amount of overcrowding, pops start declining
Those two lines are taken from 00_defines.txt. Essentially, they say that once you have hit 1.5x a planet's current housing, population growth is automatically turned off.
However, this does NOT apply to synthetic/assembled pops, as they are assembled, not grown.
Please add support to automatically shut down pop assembly once 1.X housing cap has been hit.
The AI, in my tests, will automatically kill its assembly production, but humans have to do it manually. This makes playing robotic empires simply not fun when you have many planets/colonies to manage.
- Either growth will be through the roof, and you have to keep jumping around from world to world, dealing with unemployment,
- Or you have to turn assembly off on most worlds, and spend the next century constantly resettling unemployed robots from a few "core assembly worlds"...
