Pollution - how does this work?

Added by Dv Narxx about 4 years ago

It's unclear how pollution works. On the one hand, it sickens my people, and I need doctors to fight it.
On the other hand, I cannot find any correlation between pollution and anything else.
Even tried dropping my Coal Power Plant production to 0 and it doesn't seem to help revert or stop pollution. It just keeps pilling up.

What is causing pollution? Is it somehow relatable to the size of my colony? The more people I have, the more pollution I get?
Does the coal-based power plant causes pollution? If so, will pollution drop when I stop using coal?
If not, can I use coal power plant without worrying it will increase pollution?

I'm very concerned about the well-being of my people... :-)

You can now click on the colony status at the top bar to get more detail about happiness, sickness, and productivity. I don't think pollution has much of an effect at the moment. I have over 4 billion pollution and less than one percent sickness. I believe more trees help cleanse the pollution faster and more units cause more pollution. You can also increase the cleansing speed of pollution using research.

i have Pollution: 12.062 Bn and 1.6% sickness

both the coal based power planet And the population size add to the pollution each tick,
The only thing that reduce the pollution is the forest but it is very very slow. even if you stop the coal based production your units alone will probably cause the pollution to go up.

i should add this info to the game...

hopefully until my planet become unlivable i will find a technology solution or transfer to other planets lol

Yeah, I can see a direct correlation between the size of population and pollution, and I can see a correlation between pollution and sickness.
It would be nice to know how many doctors I need to train for every X units I have, so I don't overshoot or undershoot.
