This is an advanced page for those who wish to learn about the math of Tachyon Prism boosts.
Tachyon Prisms increase Internal Hatchery rates.
If a Tachyon Prism is active, the stats page in the main menu will change to reflect the increase in production.
Tachyon Boost Analytics Edit
|Boost Multiplier||Running Time||Cost (GE)||MTG||RT|
|Tachyon||x 10||30 minutes||100||5||5|
|Large||x 10||4 hours||600||6.67||40|
|Powerful||x 100||20 minutes||750||4.44||33.33|
|Epic||x 100||2 hours||4,000||5||200|
|Legendary||x 1,000||10 minutes||15,000||2.22||166.67|
|Supreme||x 1,000||1 hour||25,000||4||1,000|
All statistics are calculated in hours. All statistics are calculated at the 'buy one' price. The price difference does not matter, as the discount is proportional.
MTG = (Multiplier * Time / Golden Eggs) * 100
RT = (Multiplier * Time)
The Multiplier times Time over Golden eggs (MTG) statistic measures how much bang you get for your cluck. The higher the number is the more value that you will get for the amount that you spend.
The Rate times Time (RT) statistic is the statistic for those who want to grow quickly and also have plenty of golden eggs. This stat is a measurement of the rate in which chickens are gained and the amount of time that the multiplier is running.
Calculate your own rates Edit
On the stats page, there is a number of chickens per hab per minute. To access this page:
Main Menu (9-dot button) --> Stats --> row "INT. HATCHERY RATE"
Note that this value will be suffixed with MIN/HAB. This value will be between 0 Min/Hab and 7,440 Min/Hab.
Take this value from your stats and multiply it by the amount listed for the number of chickens that will be received with the boost.
Example: My stats page reads 5,740 min/hab. I want to know how many chickens I will have after I use a powerful tachyon boost. I take my 5,740 min/hab and I multiply it by 8,000. This is now a measurement of how many chickens I would have gotten in that time frame without the use of a boost plus the number of chickens that the boost gave me.
5,740 * 8,000 = 45,920,000 chickens created in the boost time.
This amount of chickens becomes even larger when you have researched the 'Internal Hatchery Calm' epic research, giving an additional multiplier for the calculation if you activate a tachyon prism just before you go offline. This additional multiplier is 1.0 for 0 times researched and increases by +0,1 each time you spend golden eggs to research this epic research. If you have, for example, researched this epic research 15 times, then (using the same formula as before) you have a multiplier of 2.5, and your total created chickens are calculated as follows:
5,740 * 8,000 * 2.5 = 114,800,000 chickens created in the boost time.
Note that you would have to stay offline during the entire duration of the tachyon prism's boost!
