Nope, it's such a complex equation that not even the Devs know how to do that.

I think someone might have written a guide about that though, before that knowledge was lost forever, you know.

24 * (L^2+L+0.1) = Weekly WH to maintain a level.

[24 * (L^2+L+0.1)] / 7 = 24 * Employees * Efficiency * Mix Adjustment * Land Adjustment

If we simplify the last four terms into Daily WH (produced by your R&D center), then we end up with this equation.

L(L+1) = 7WH/24 - .1

So, if your level is 50, then...

50(50+1) = 7WH/24 - .1

That math does not make any sense to me, or at least, I don't get what you are saying. Is there a way to express this in easier to understand language for normal people?

[(Level Maintained) x (Level Maintained + 1) x 24 ] / 7 = WH to Maintain

So, if you have 50,000 WH, you are looking for the level that is closest, so it acts kind of like guess and check...

50,000 x 7 = 350,000 / 24 = 14583

50 x 51 = 2550 (too low)
70 x 71 = 4970 (too low)
120 x 121 = 14520 (really close)

So, that means 50k WH/day can maintain around QA120. And we didn't even have to use a spreadsheet :).

(By the way, a 500kft2 R&D center with a 160% mix produces about half of that, so it would take 2x 500kft2 R&D centers with 160% mix to maintain QA120, or 4x 100kft2 R&D centers)
