      Description

      The int type is too restrictive for specifying the decay factor.
      Using a decay factor of 1 means no decay.
      Next value is 2, and the importance of loads decreases too fast:

      Instant Importance
      0 100%
      1 50%
      2 25%
      3 12.5%
      4 6.3%
      5 3.1%
      6 1.6%
      7 0.8%
      8 0.4%
      9 0.2%

      Next value is 3, and the importance of loads decreases even faster:

      Instant Importance
      0 100%
      1 33%
      2 11%
      3 3.7%
      4 1.2%
      5 0.4%
      6 0.1%
      7 0.0%
      8 0.0%
      9 0.0%

      Using a double for decay factor isn't complex and allows much more precision.
