Algorithm Edit

The Algorithm here is borrowed from SSS2 (by Edgeofnight). 


Tier 5 (+0)Edit
  • Most nation-states in the game.
Tier 4 (+5)Edit
  • Syria
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Damascus
  • Colombia 
  • Italy
  • Kurdistan 
  • United Arab Emirates 
  • New Zealand 
  • Pacific Confederation
  • Ukraine
  • Turkey
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
Tier 3 (+10)Edit
  • Scotland
  • Indonesia
  • South Korea
  • Nigeria
  • South Africa
  • Egypt
  • Iran
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Argentina
  • Pakistan
Tier 2 (+15)Edit
  • UK
  • Russia
  • Brazil
  • Japan
  • France
  • Germany
  • Australia
Tier 1 (+20)Edit
  •  North American Republic
  • China
  • India

Each nation on the scale gets +5 for the algorithm, baring the lowest end of the scale (IE: Tier 1 will get +20, Tier 5 Gets +0) Bonuses will also be reward for being a higher on the scale than your opponent: +1 for each tier you are above your opponent. (So in the case of a T1-T5 War, T1 gets an extra +5 for being 5 tiers above T2). Over time you can move up the Tier scale.


Every turn when you are not at War or expanding, you can develop 2 things: Military, Economy, or Infrastructure. You can also double develop, putting both of your points into 1 catagorey. MIlitary and Economy grant +1 for a single develop, or +2 for a double develop. Infra grants +1.25 for a single development, and +2.5 for a double development. Military and Economy are multiplied by your power.

NPCs Double Develop Military. then Infra, then Eco.


These are added After Multiplacation.

Military modifiersEdit

Modifers are added AFTER you multiple your scores. You can not get both "More troops" and "Army dwarfs enemy's" you get one or the other

  • More troops:+2
  • Signifigantly more troops (2X-5X):+5
  • Army dwarfs enemy's (greater than 5X): +10
  • Greater Space Force:+2
  • Control of Orbital Space:+10
  • Much smaller armed forces:-2
  • Armed forces dwarfed:-5

Economy ModifiersEdit
  • Evenly Matched Econ:+1 to both sides.
  • Larger economy:+2
  • Much larger economy:+5
  • Economy dwarfs enemy's:+10
  • Much Smaller economy:-3
  • Economy Dwarfed:-6


  • Giant Space Force:+4
  • Giant Land:+4
  • Giant Air:+4
  • Large Land: +3
  • Large Navy;+3
  • Large Air:+3
  • Medium Land: +2 
  • Medium Space Force:+2
  • Medium Air:+2
  • Small Land:+1
  • Small Space Force:+1
  • Small Air:+1

Your power has caps based on tiers:

  • Tier 6=3
  • Tier 5=4
  • Tier 4=6
  • Tier 3=7
  • Tier 2=9
  • Tier 1=12

The USR will start the game with a large Naval and medium/large land. So it's power will be 5/6 according to the normal powers. However, the USR gets 1 extra point added to it's power, so it starts with 6/7.

Power is a multiplier.


  • Tech far surpasses enemy's:+10
  • Far Better Tech:+5 
  • Better Tech:+2
  • Tech is evenly  matched:+2 to both
  • Worse Tech:-2
  • Tech is far worse by enemy:-5
  • Tech  is far inferior to enemy's:-10


Location goes by where the core of your power is.

  • From Final result
  • Per Nation.

Popular Revolt/Major EnemyEdit

Popular revolt is a special bonus given by mods during Popular Revolutions. These Bonuses last 5-10 turns. This bonus multiples your end result by 1.5, so if your final score was 60, you would get 90. While you can have both of these at once, they do not stack.


  • Population Less than a Million;0
  • Population greater than 1 million:+1
  • Population greater than 3 million:+3
  • Population greater than 5 million:+5
  • Greater than 10 million: +10
  • <20: +15
  • <30=20
  • <50=25
  • ,75=30
  • <100=+35
  • Larger Population:+2
  • 2-5 times larger:+5
  • 5-9 times larger:+10
  • 10-12 times larger:+15
  • 13-15 times larger:+20
  • <15 times larger:+25
  • Any higher will be decided by mods.

Plausablity CitationsEdit

  • Any player found to break the rules (or be dumb really)
  • First strike is a -2, second is a -3, and third on is -5. These stack, so you can get -10 or 15
  • Strikes fade after 10 turns


  • Fighting on 2 seperate fronts would cost you -30
  • 3 fronts would be -45
  • 4 fronts would be -70
  • Each addtional front (god help the man who has to do that algo) would cost -30 for each addtional front.


Mods will handle this.

Result Edit

Add up and find the larger number.((y/(z+y))*2)-1 determines the maximum amount of territory gained, while (p)*(1-1/(2x)) determines the amount won per year. Y is the winners score, Z is the loser, P is the result of the first equation, and x is the number of years.

Permission granted. Through Stars We Rise. (Welcome to the Universe). 15:14, October 17, 2015 (UTC)


Great job, you were the guy who always complains of handwavium. The rapid rise in sea level in this game is simply implausible, how much is this? Several metres in a decade? No, just no. Even the highest projection figures estimates that the sea will rise by three metres, most predict it'll rise by a metre. 

Very funny, Candies. And honestly, it is only a few CENTImeters. It is about to reach 1 meter later on.

Time wastingEdit

I know America is important but we have to stop wasting so much time waiting for posts. A turn should be every 24 hours and anyone who doesn't post well that's tough. We have to keep things moving or no one will bother to stay.
