With #pops being halved, or more in some cases, we'll see what the figures look like with 3.0 (watch how they dont end up changing PP at all lol). But harmonising living standards arbitrarily will end up just shifting people from one standard to another without making unhappy pops more deadly. It makes more sense to actually make planets dynamic - by tying PP to things like happiness.Interesting stuff. Perhaps a simpler solution would be to instead look at the political power of the Ruler class for Stratified society and knock it down a peg. Right now it's set at 10x per pop which really makes it overwhelming. If ruler class wasn't dominating the approval rating average quite as much, it would leave more space for unhappy slaves to impact stability.
I personally don't think excess amenities should boost pop happiness at all. You can only go to one cinema at a time, or ride one rollercoaster at a time.I also still like the idea of adding a happiness cap to slaves and reducing the impact of happiness they get from excess amenities to 75%.
If anything, excess amenities should be used to drive pop-immigration stats (a topic for another day perhaps).Dynamic amenities consumption scaling upwards with happiness corrects the... frankly illogical system of extra amenities boosting all pops happiness universally, like it's some kind of inconsumable public good.
