Well, that depends on a lot of things...
I think it can be solved though...
But I will get back to that when I have some code... :)

That would be all well if You didn't have the -20 thing...
Ok, I had a city with 30 in base production...
With old rules and pop 10 this would give You 20 pollution
with no improvements...
New rules gives You 10...
But my first version would have given You 20...

Come on...
Pollution is an industrialization problem!
You don't have many cities like that and I doubt that You would
gain anything by not building a factory - even if You do get less

Well, other solutions exists but I really don't like the -20!

Adding factors just to get more factors is a bad reason...
I think these are the ones really affecting population pollution...
And I do think this is closer to civ (II)


Now take a deep breath, smile and don't take life so seriously... :)
