Back arrow (CivBE) List of yields in CivBE

20xFoodBE Food is one of the main tile yields in Civilization: Beyond Earth.

SourcesEdit

Food is mainly acquired by having your Cities work the Terrain around them. More food can be obtained from resources, tile improvement, buildings and trade. Clearing an Alien Nest or combining artifacts may also yield a one-time food boost.

UsesEdit

Food is gathered for one important purpose, that of growing the 22xPopulationBE Population of your cities. Each 22xPopulationBE Population consumes 2 20xFoodBE. Note that all percentage modifiers to 20xFoodBE are applied after consumption is taken into account; as such, they will affect growth rate but not maximum population.

Some effects cause 20xFoodBE to be carried over after city growth:

City growthEdit

A city grows by storing enough 20xFoodBE Food required to increase the population by 1.

The specific amount of 20xFoodBE Food required to increase the population by 1 is calculated as follows:

Food required = p² + 6p + 8

where p is the current population of the city.
