10 Uses

Something I should have tested a while ago: As long as an icon has 10 or fewer uses you can tithe to it.  If it has 11 or more tithing is disabled.

That is all.

Haven't Vanished Entirely

I realize I haven't been posting anything.  Part of that is playing La-Mulana, and part of it is just nothing thinking of anything to analyze.  I've resumed gathering data for how more than four milkers affect collection rates, but that's going to take a long time.

So I thought I'd just make a quick post to say that I haven't disappeared completely, and to say that I'm open to suggestions.  The more complex and obtuse the better.

Updated Street Imagination

I've updated my street imagination tables and moved it all into a page about how street imagination works.  You can follow the link here, and I've also put a link to it under Interesting Things in the sidebar for easy reference.

15% more Visitors

Or, you get 15% more from each unique visitor.  Where "more" means more than your base street imagination per day.  Let's try that again:

For each unique glitch that visited your street in a day, your street imagination stipend in increased by 15% of the base stipend - which, as you'll recall, is equal to your Qurazy Quoin value.  By "unique" I mean to say that the same glitch visiting more than once in the same day doesn't increase the total.

The amount is rounded before being added.  For example, at level 10 your base stipend is 55, and 15% of 55 is 8.25.  If four people visit your street at level 10 you get 8.25 rounded to 8 times 4 = 32 extra imagination, not 8.25 times 4 = 33 imagination.

Animals will have to wait until early next week because it took me a couple of days just to sort this part out - in part because I had to level up one of my alts to verify my hypothesis.  I do have a few animal results but I like to double check things before posting them.  Machines will be even more complicated because there are four types of machines, multiple things you can makes with them and varying stack sizes to deal with, but, baby permitting, I will try to get some good conclusions over the weekend.

New Imagination from Street Work

Just a quick update to let you know that I am going to working on getting the numbers for animal interactions, machine interactions and visits over the next couple of days, but unfortunately there are a lot of things to test and I can only test about three per real day.

A long, long time ago
And I can still remember how butterfly singing affects the lifespan of butterflies
But I knew if I had my chance
Then I would assess whether singing to butterflies was worth doing just for the imagination
