I've added a table with the weights of different services contributing to the service coverage score for when office and industrial buildings upgrade. I think this is quite useful as the game itself gives no information other than "Building needs more services." It was sourced from decompiled game code. - Oneiros (talk) 00:02, 19 March 2015 (CET)
- That does appear to be quite useful. Thanks for adding it.

It seems very strange that ground pollution hurts industrial level, given that industry is the primary source of pollution. Not necessarily wrong, but strange. Similarly for noise.
I'm pretty sure services affect residential level. Did you just not have those numbers?
- I checked again, and can't find services anywhere in the residential upgrade code. It probably appears as though services affect residential building level because services raise land value. Also ground and noise pollution are definitely in there for industry and offices. I agree that this whole system seems a bit strange. I added some more explanation to the page to make things a bit clearer. - Oneiros (talk) 00:02, 19 March 2015 (CET)
How important is proximity for coverage--is a pale green coverage area only worth X% of its value compared to a bright green coverage from a service right next door? How linear is it? Traveller (talk) 04:44, 22 March 2015 (CET)
- Calculation of the service effect on building level is linear against the service distribution rate in all cases. However I can't tell whether the service distribution rate itself is linear - the code is far more complicated and would take a long time to dig through. Hope that makes sense. If I had to guess, I'd say it would be linear. Oneiros (talk) 03:16, 23 March 2015 (CET)
