About This File
* It is highly advisable to demolish I-HT yards, I-D/I-M sheds or grounds.(they're the whitish land that's not really a building. Sheds are the tiny buildings in I-D or I-M zones(I'm not sure which one)) The decreased job count for these lots can mean they might turn into ghost jobs. Except for them, the 'buildings' have been boosted in various amounts.
OK, the Industry sector in this game is not really all that great.
I was fed up with the fact that a large industrial building(ex. Dead Forest Paper, Zeno's Truck Parts) is
thirty, forty times larger than a small one(Farley's Foundry, Bella Barium, etc.)
and they have about 3~10 times the jobs. Bella Barium, a 2x2 stage 1 building that looks more like 2x1.5, has 23 jobs.
Zeno's truck Parts is about 2 times taller, 2.5 times wider and 3 times longer, and it's a stage 3. It should not have only 78 jobs.
I used both the Industry Doubler and the Quadrupler once, and while it was nice to have 400-ish jobs on large buildings, an I-HT yard having 20-ish made no sense.
So I have boosted the pop counts for those industrial buildings, based on the 3-dimensional size of said buildings and by stage.
(stage 3 has an advantage over stage 1, and I-D has more pop than I-M, which has more pop count than I-HT)
You can see that it is proportional to the *volume* of the buildings, not just a blind x2, x4 factor. (Yards/Grounds actually decreased in job count)
They range from single-digit numbers to 606(I-M), 962(I-D, Dead Forest Paper), and 386(I-HT, Spline Testing?)
After testing, I found that it usually increases the industry population by approximately three times. This is quite variable, if your industrial zones have lots of big buildings there will be bigger boosts, whereas in industry zones filled with Bella Barium or Farley's Foundry has less of an effect.
I have separated the files into 3 parts - I-D, I-M, and I-HT.
