new banks vs old banks

i made some calculations (hope i'm not wrong).
the province size does not matter (i calculated for 500 acres, 1K acres, 2K acres and the results are the same). also... the banks % doesn't matter. it is important only for the ammount of gc. but to compare the old with the new it's the same reult no matter the percentage. so i use here 10% banks.
the variables are:
peasants/acre - p/a
raw income per peasant (affected by happiness) - i/p
total income (resulted only by these variables; so no sci, race bonus or other bonuses) - tinc

let's see:

p/a = 11 (that means a t/m as it means 36% peasant out of 30 PopulationPerAcre)
i/p = 3 gc (that is Happy)

TIncOldBanks = 26.4K
TIncNewBanks = 25.2K
difference = 1,200 gc

p/a = 11
i/p = 3.2 gc

TIncOldBanks = 28,160
TIncNewBanks = 26,080
difference = 2,080 gc

p/a = 11
i/p = 2.8 gc

TIncOldBanks = 24,640
TIncNewBanks = 24,320
difference = 320 gc

p/a = 9 (attacker)
i/p = 3.2 gc

TIncOldBanks = 23,040
TIncNewBanks = 23,520
difference = -480 gc

p/a = 9
i/p = 3 gc

TIncOldBanks = 21,600
TIncNewBanks = 22,800
difference = -1,200 gc

p/a = 9
i/p = 2.8 gc

TIncOldBanks = 20,160
TIncNewBanks = 22,080
difference = -1,920 gc


conclusion:
for attackers banks are better then last age. for t/ms are worse.
attackers will have a bit higher income while t/ms a bit smaller income.
the problem will be (much) higher expenses on maintenance.

simple excel spreadsheet...

doesn't account for happiness though, just rework it if you want. I'm too lazy, just wanted a quick comparison :P

you forget that science inreaces the income per pezzie as well. +40% income science is basicly making 3gc+40%=4.2 gc per pezzie. Same goes for all modifiers.

So total income divided by total pezzies= income per pezzie now you can calulate it.

I'm not sure about that. I think alchemy works as a simple multiplier of total income; add all up all other sources first, then account for it [I suppose that this is almost the same as what you are saying; it's just a simpler way to express it]. That's the basis on which my spreadsheet works...

yeah... science affects income but in the same way for both. that is u apply the same percent on both. that will increase only the difference between the two. that is: if u have A giving 100gc and B giving 110gc u apply 40% and A will give 140gc and B 154gc. the difference grew from 10 to 14 but B remains more efficient. i just wanted to see if the banks are better now or last age.

What about pop bonus changing p/a?

As an Orc, I have a p/a of nearly 14 now. This puts me in your super TM class! Of course, my draft is still low and will increase as time goes on.

I think that banks now work on their own in the same way that banks worked with mines last age. The flat-rate gc produced is also affected by the banks's own income multiplier, so more banks will produce a disproportionate increase in income. It won't be that noticeable, though.
