[##:##] Command : power [new|update] [<NUM>|country <NATS>]
The power report provides one view of national strengths. It can be particularly helpful in planning defense strategies.
Normally, the last saved power report is shown. and update request a new power report based on up-to-date information. This costs 10 BTUs. The new report is saved for use by future power commands, except when a deity uses update. This lets deities examine up-to-date power reports without affecting what players get to see.
If option AUTO_POWER is enabled, the command doesn't let you save new power reports. Instead, the power report is updated automatically right before the update.
If the optional NUM argument is given, only the top NUM entries in the power chart will be displayed. Note that for deities, if you give a negative number, only the top NUM entries in the power chart will be displayed, and the power number rating will not be displayed.
If the optional country argument is given, then the information is given for those particular countries.
In the power report the countries are listed in order of decreasing power factor. Powerless countries are not shown unless explicitly requested with the country argument.
The power report shows the following columns:
number of sectors
average sector efficiency
number of civilians
number of military
number of shells
number of guns
amount of petrol
amount of iron
amount of dust
amount of oil
number of planes
number of ships
number of land units
cash on hand
The power factor is determined by the following equation:
power factor = ( power value of money + power value of sectors + power value of commodities in sectors + power value of commodities loaded on ships and land units) * (20 + nation tech level) / 500 + power value of ships, planes, land units and nukes * (20 + their tech level) / 500
The power value of money is dollars / 100.
The power value of a sector is (the power value of the materials and money needed to build + maximum population / 1000 * 8 + 1) * efficiency / 100.
The power value of a ship, plane, land unit or nuke is the power value of the materials and money needed to build * efficiency / 100.
The power value of commodities is amount * type factor. show item shows the type factor in column power.
Efficiency is in percent.
