    Notes:
    - This is not a question.

    As we all know, the equation for total favor production for any one god is:

    And if we assume that all Temples are level 25, then we can use this equation:


    We will be using the second equation.

    Here's a scenario: You want to produce 1 Manticore per day. In order to do this, you need to produce 405/24 favor per hour, or 16.875. We can use this equation to determine how many cities you need:


    To get the answer, you must simplify.


    You always round up, so the answer is 12 cities with level 25 Temples worshiping Zeus.

    So what if you want to produce 2 Manticores per day? We simply solve again and get the answer of 46 cities. WOW!

    This brings up the question: How much is too much? To help you decide, I've made this list. The format is
    (Cities with Temple 25 worshiping same god / Favor Production)

    1 / 5
    4 / 10
    9 / 15
    16 / 20
    25 / 25
    36 / 30
    49 / 35
    64 / 40
    81 / 45
    100 / 50

    The increase in your total favor production for a god is modeled by the equation


    Here is a list, using the format
    (Number of lvl 25 Temples worshiping > Number of Temples + 1 / Change)

    0 > 1 / 5
    1 > 2 / 2.07
    4 > 5 / 1.18
    9 > 10 / 0.811
    16 > 17 / 0.62
    25 > 26 / 0.5
    36 > 37 / 0.41
    49 > 50 / 0.36
    64 > 65 / 0.31
    81 > 82 / 0.28
    100 > 101 / 0.25

    yes... other worlds you multiply the equation by world speed.

    one other thing to add in is divine statues, though it won't make a huge difference to the point you're making (count as 5lvls of temple)

    You can never really have enough, because by the time you are capable of making 50 favor an hour, you will need it.

    What about adding in Divine Statue as a variable? It would cut the number of cities you needed to accomplish whatever goal you were pursuing.

    That would change the equation from y = 5 sqrt x to y = 5.48 sqrt x.

    Does anything happen if you have a lv 25 Temple with a Divine Statue? Does it yield over 5 favor per hour, or does the divine statue only bring up 5 levels?

    Good job on this, really. This is exactly what I was looking for. It may also the first practical use for algebra I've seen. :p

    To make 1 manticora a day, you can either have 12 cities with maxed temple OR 10 cities with maxed temple and a divine statue (Which is what i have now) :p
