No, it won't. What we need would be the way to _vary_ cityfactor and
unhappysize from player to player. (

But it have certainly been proved as inadequate to level up the chances
between novice and experienced players. Maybe we need to adjust both
when the difficulty level changes? Or supplement cityfactor with
popfactor (total population when aditional unhappines hits)?
