# Template:Nanobot formula description

From Bacterial Takeover

The percentage of population destroyed by Nanobots is calculated according to the formula

where

*Population Destroyed*- how many percent of the**initial**planet population will be destroyed by Nanobots in the current attack.**This is limited to 40% of the initial population**, so it's impossible to completely destroy a planet only with Nanobots in the first attack.*Nanobot Count*- the current number of Nanobots owned by the player.*Nanobot Resistance Coefficient*- a number that is determined by the Nanobot resistance of the current planet.*Nanobot Strength*- a multiplier that is set at 1 by default and is multiplied by any increases to Nanobot strength, such as Planetary Research discoveries and Dark Matter Institute technologies.
