Gem v1.9: Faith
Click to see the equation I use to balance yields, or provide feedback on that. I compared average expected yield per city from each belief. Faith yield is handled with educated guesses instead of a formula, since its value changes significantly over time.
I plan to release GEM to Steam by December.
