Pick's special ability increases basic clicking power instead of gold produciton. The formula for calculating cracking gold bonus is following:

\text {Cracking gold bonus} ~ = ~ \text {Number of Picks} ~ \times ~ \text {Cracking gold power}

Cracking gold power depends on the level of the cracking gold special ability. It is 5 on the first level of cracking gold and 984375 on the fifth level of cracking gold.

For example if you have 50 picks and completed Cracking gold 2 research your cracking gold bonus will be 1250 (50*25).

Pick Production Calculations Edit

Initial pick production can be calculated using the following formula:

\text {Pick production} ~ = ~ \text {BPP} ~ \times ~ \text {BPM}

where BPP is base pick production (2.5 gold per second)

and BPM stands for better pecking multiplier. It depends on the level of Better pecking production research. For example if player completed Better pecking 3 research, his BPM will be 24 (2 x 3 x 4).

Special ability of pick is focused on boosting GPC instead of GPS. That is why pick become almost useless as gold production source in the late game.

The only additional multiplier that influences pick's production is pit's Digging gold special ability as it influences all buildings in the game.

So final formula will look like this:

\text {Final pick production} ~ = ~ \text {BPP} ~ \times ~ \text {BPM} ~ \times ~ \text {DGM}

where DGM stands for digging gold multiplier (multiplier to all buildings base production from pit's special ability).
