Thought it'd be interesting to show a graph of the data I have available. X axis is population, y axis is number of towns ABOVE that population.

Nice work, Larry.

Now we know population growth is not represented by a diminishing return curve. :)

Only towns up to 3500 population, I think but you get the idea.

well even then, like the towns that have 0 population, i'm pretty confident there are more towns than shown

read again.  The x axis is the population of the town, the y axis is the number of towns, so theres 3500 towns with a pop of over some number(100?)

An updated version. In this case each dot is a population delta of 50, starting with a minimum of 50 as the 15k towns with a population less than that made the detail in the rest of the graph hard to discern. 



Open image in new tab for larger view.

Below is the slightly more interesting graph that only looks at towns over 1000 population.

How did you figure all this out?

Way back in May I wrote a parser to go over the datafile_towns.xml file and turn them into objects. The result is all parsed and made publicly available at http://illyriad.heroku.com

To get those particular numbers, I just did:

Quote
numbers = (0...30000).step(50).collect { |n| Town.population_greater_than(n).population_less_than(n+50).size }

Yay ruby. Also that graph had an accidental error, now fixed.

3) PompeiiPopulation: 26948 Location: 508|-619

The data* is incorrect :)

Btw, that town is now maxed. How can people have more than 26.948? Is it base on races?

*Edit my spelling

That graph does seem a little small. I think that someone could add a lot of information to that, it would just take a while.
