I would like to change the formula to make the upper limit of the range dependent only on importance and not on radius.

Why not just omit the radius from the equation?

That way, the 'boost' become dependant upon just the distance from the perimeter of the circle regardless of the circles size:

sub x{ my( $i, $r, $d, $o ) = @_; return $i / $d**$o; } print x( 100, 0, $_, 0.5 ) for map 2**$_, 4..13;; 25 17.6776695296637 12.5 8.83883476483184 6.25 4.41941738241592 3.125 2.20970869120796 1.5625 1.10485434560398 print x( 100, 1000, $_, 0.5 ) for map 2**$_, 4..13;; 25 17.6776695296637 12.5 8.83883476483184 6.25 4.41941738241592 3.125 2.20970869120796 1.5625 1.10485434560398
