City growth[]

A city grows by storing enough Food Food required to increase the population by 1.

For the specific amount of Food Food required to increase the population by 1 at different city sizes, see Food (CivBE).


You gain new Virtues by collecting Culture Culture.

The costs for new Virtues increases with the number of virtues you possess.

The formula to calculate the cost is:

Culture required = 4n² + 20
(3n² + 15 for Sputnik difficulty)

where n is the number of Virtues you already possess.

Virtues Culture Culture required for the next Virtue
0 20
1 24
2 36
3 56
4 84
5 120
n 4n² + 20

Each new founded city increases the cost of acquiring new virtues by 9% - 10%.
