Disasters and Population (Fed Hud)

You can only research ONE disaster, you can choose from:
FAMINE: Your personal gold production goes up by 3 gold per acre for evermore.
CRIME: You and your directs get immunity from sabotage, the person who has crime researched has to be online for the protection to work for their direct subjects.
DISEASE: No more “warm feelings” from the abbot, abbot asks 5% of your total gold amount instead of 10%

Every 2-3 hours a disaster will happen, you can only research 1 of the 3 disasters, it is totally random which disaster you will get.
The gained citizens and the gold you need to pay will fluctuate from these pictures since they have been taken on different huds with different personal acres

Most people will decide between Famine and Disease, if you are not sure which one you want to research read this

Disaster

Hud Explanation
cits2 If a disaster happens during the festival you will not have to pay for it nor will you receive citizens
kingsfavor If a disaster happens during the time you have the King’s favor you will not have to pay for it nor will you receive citizens
citsflee If your Homage income is still under 150% you’ll get random population increase (You can see your homage on the Accounting tab, it’s the 3rd line)
cits Once your Homage income will reach 150% you will get this message every Sep of an even year unless you have overcrowding
cits1 If your population is above 5000% you will lose the population above it, this will happen every Sep of an even year unless you have less then 5000% population
disaster If your start researching something else then you have researched already the hud will tell you, you can always change the area you have researched but it is really expensive to do so. If you have researched disease and want to start researching famine you will need to research famine 40 times! 20 Times to forget about disease and 20 times to learn about famine

Disease vs Famine:
Disease is far better for a liege to research then Famine. Famine creates ‘+3’ gold per acre to production, and immunity to famine. Conversely, Disease has several benefits, in addition to immunity to itself.
Disease is directly related to the exercise of paying the abbot.
In normal game play, paying that abbot cost 10% of your total gold amount, often leaves you with a warm feeling and your subjects empty handed (about 2/3rds of the time).
With disease researched, the cost of paying the abbot is 5% of your total gold amount. In addition, the benefit is guaranteed either for you or your subjects.

************NOTE:The amount of gold the subjects receive has absolutely nothing to do the amount of the donation!************

For instance, if you pay the abbot 10 times, you can expect that your subjects will get paid in gold or acres 9 times; the remaindering 1 time appears to be giving you, as the payer 2 gold bars.
Breaking down the 9 times that the abbot benefits the subjects: – 6 of those payments will be a normal payment from the abbot equaling approximately the product of the individual subjects’ personal acre total squared. – 2 of those payments are approximately 6 times the normal payment the abbot benefits your subject with.- 1 of the payments will give each one of your subjects 1 personal acre

************NOTE:Your subjects DO NOT have to be online to receive the donation benefits from the abbot.************

So, now you ask why not do Famine?
If you have 1000 personal acres, your next acre will cost 4,000,000. (1000 x 1000 x 4)
With famine researched you receive 3000 (3 x 1000) additional gold per month. So, every hour of game play you will earn 60,000 gold. Provided you are a good liege and give acres to your lineage, you will recover the cost of those acres every 66 hours and 40 minutes of playing Tiny Empires in real time.
The abbot comes every 12 hours of playing Tiny Empires, in real time. You have the opportunity to benefit your subjects 5.5 times more with disease researched. If you have just one subject, you will give them in 6 donations enough gold to purchase 2 acres and donate one additional to them in the process for a total of 3 acres in the time you will recover the costs for one acre researching famine. Let’s say you have 6 subjects, at this point disease out paces famine over 1800%.
For that sole reason alone, it is genuinely clear that disease is far more intelligently chosen as an option to research over Famine. Not only is famine completely self serving, it slows down the growth of your kingdom and down line.
Fun fact: I tested the donation amount to see if the benefit goes up and down depending on the subjects. To my surprise and delight, early in testing, I donated 50 million once in comparison spent out my gold and donated 950,000. The results were identical.
