Does anyone have a breakdown of how many clans are needed for specific
numbers of defence post?
I have a partial breakdown already but needs the clans portion to
complete it. http://vgap.net/defposts.txt

If you can add to it or have it already just post here.
Thx.

"A second factor in calculating the defensive strength of a planet's
population is the number of planetary defenseposts. Each planetary
defensepost adds to this portion of the defensefactor, at a value of
0.05 per defensepost. This total value (starting with one, for planets
with no defenseposts at all) is multiplied by the number of clans and
racial defenseratio. For example, 100 defending Birdmen clans on a
planet with 30 defenseposts defend at a ratio of 100 * (1 + 30*0.05) =
100 * 2.5 = 250. A Lizard planet with 100 clans and 40 defenseposts
defends at a rate of 100 * 10 * (1 + 40 * 0.05) = 100 *10 * 3 = 3000."
have a look at donovan

The math itself is easy. Below 50 defense posts it is the same as the
number of defense posts. Above 50 it is (defense minus 50) squared
plus 50.

I have another format. It's for Phost but I don't expect any
differences with host in this part. Ignore the part about torpedoes if
your game does not allow planets to have torpedo tubes.

No damage assumed.
Base posts count towards number of posts for #beams and #torps only.
Base adds 10 fighter bays, and when base tech is higher base tech is used.
Planetary mass is 100 + #base & planet posts.
A * denotes that the item immediately before that has increased for this number
of defense posts.
Kill and Expl are the total kill and explosive power for one round of
firing with all beams and - if available - all torpedo tubes.
