Raw metal 1,156
Metal goods 0,894
Basis for the calculation was a town with 60.000 citizens.
I found out, that there is no difference if there are more wealthy and ritch people in a town. The consumption is the same by a 80% poor, 15% wealthy and 5% ritch population and by a 70% poor, 20% wealthy and 10% ritch population.
But the need is a bit dependant on the seasons i think. But i couldn't proof it, because of draugts and pluages in summer while i tested that issue.
If you take in the need for rawmaterials to produce the needed goods you get the following need table:
Raw metal 2,339
Metal goods 1,183
well, thruth, i ve made research how many workers based on 100citizens each job need. Majority of 20 commodities require 5.78% of working population, only bricks require less than 5% which would be ideal, obviously.
So, with current setup of how many goods each job produce and require, and how much citizens use, whatever we do, we always require 109% of population, which is of course imposible.
Thats why some goods will always be scarce.
My apologise for grammar mistakes.
