The Formula

If you're like me, you found yourself just procuring all day. Your employees are working too hard and selling too fast. So I wanted to find out how Biz Tycoon HD determined the length of time to sell products.

As far as I can tell, this formula seems to be working for me, except for funnily enough, district A. I've tried to control for as many variables as possible. So without further ado:

Clearance time in minutes =

122.644 * Capacity * Inventory
60 * Employee * Demo * TPerk

*Just a note: TPerk = (Perk + 100)/100

Example: Bejeweled, District C(94,101) =

122.644 * 10566 * 5940      =    330.57
60 * 15 * 3026 * 8.55

TPerk here is calculated as (755% + 100) / 100

The game gives me an estimated time of 5 hours 30 minutes and 36 seconds.

My formula is off by 2 seconds. Not bad.

Why figure this out? So I can determine what variables I need to control to procure at 24 hours.

That said, I only have a limited pool of sample, so if anyone has bigger shops or more variables, let me know in the chatbox or email me!

NB: The 122.644 is replaced with 132.588 in District A. I was guessing it had to do with population but the formula remains unchanged in VPT.

Have fun, ST
