1% might be too high for an energy transfer tax.  I'd need to either run or see some hypothetical situations played out and the costs associated with them.  The main gotcha is that most situations take place over several cycles, and a 1% tax per cycle might get too big too quickly.

Happy to change it of course.  0.1%?

Should we be consistant about the effeciency of nrg conversion?  Namely, do we want the same tax here as we have other places nrg is converted, such as converting nrg to body and vice versa?

I think so, tho I'd rather prefer it to be a curve.

Slow metabolism (low transfers/conversions) -> high efficiency
Fast metabolism (high transfers/conversions) -> low efficiency

Yeah, I think a quadratic curve associating more activity with greater costs is a good idea.

Please use this drop if you are running Internet Mode as it should improve connection problems.

Press the toolbar button with the little plant on it.  I dare you.  (best on a small sim or when zoomed in)
