  • researchrate V_FLOAT

The number of research hours a single scientist produces for each hour of game time. Raising this number makes research go faster.

  • uforeductionrate V_FLOAT

This number is used in the equation that determines how many UFOs are spawned in a given cycle. Must be between 0.0 and 1.0. Higher numbers will result in fewer UFOs spawning.

example: "0.75"

  • employeerate V_FLOAT

An abstract number to increase or decrease the number of new employees a player receives each month. The base number will be multiplied by employeerate. If a nation was going to give 2 soldiers and employeerate is set to 1.5, the player will receive 3 soldiers. Note: nation happiness influences this as well so there is more at play than the nation employee value in nations.ufo.

example: "1.0"
