I like to always have my catnip income always be positive. That being the case, the worst case scenario I have to look at is the Winter (cold) which displays a -90% by the income. I'd like to be able do this with only what is in the info box (Base, Structures, Season, Job output, Demand).

Catnip box

Using the numbers in the info box, how can I determine what my cold winter output would be?

You can find it out by putting the variables in the resource formula from the wiki:

perTick = (building output * season modifier + job output * upgrades * happiness) * building % effects + automatic effects - consumption * consumption % effects

or to simplify for catnip in your specific case and naming the variables as seen in the tooltip:

perTick = (base * season modifier + job output * happiness) * structures - demand

  • This doesn't seem to work properly. Replacing variables from your function with what I had (happiness was 101% at the time): (10 * 1.5 + 4.590 * 1.01) * 1.35 - 21.325 != +190.00

  • @Batophobia Is you display showing the per-second rate? That looks very high for a per-tick rate. Sep 25, 2014 at 16:15
  • @murgatroid99 I was, thanks for the tip.

  • It's very possible that my "simplified" formula is missing some variables, so if it doesn't work, I will edit it out.
