Populous Release Live Now

Dear Licensees,

Witness the evolution of your populous. Gone are the days of mindless laboring drones. A new order has been passed so that a planet’s population is distributed among each base according to their production needs. Planetary infrastructure projects are now available which improve the livelihood of workers. Governors can exercise their power to control the upkeep of these projects as populations grow and decline.

New Features

Population Reports

Planets now host a dynamic population that can grow and decline depending on various factors. Your local workforce is recruited from the population pool and is assigned every week to your base. The new population report shows the change, happiness and unemployment rates of the population.

For a breakdown of all the new features make sure you read the Release Notes.
