Debt Transfer Question

Topics: General: Debt Transfer Question

As we know, this is broken. When releasing a country that has negative cash, the negative cash is not applied to the leader of an empire. (as it supposed to happen),

Does this extend into actual debt?

I ran across a post from 2014 which seems to indicate this. Player A took over debt ridden countries from Player B. Player A did get hit with 2 trillion of the debt. From what I see of the posts, the claim was made that Player B received none of the debt. While the GM chimed in that the feature was working correctly(guess it got broken since that post) - the claim was never acknowledged or refuted by the GM or the player who should have received the massive debt.

The GM simply refused to address that claim (perhaps rightly.) The other player chose to only make insults.

If anyone is interested in testing this out, please contact me on GR. Grand Duchy of Ney. Purposefully driving countries near bankruptcy and releasing seems to have a lot more profit potential then raiding c3's.

I will have an engineer look into it tomorrow.

The feature works.
It transfers debt to the leader country at 1T per game month.
There is a max amount you inherit.
We have checked GR and have seen this taking place.

Debt transfer is not about cash and debt only.

The procedure looks at the assets of the country, it includes cash and debt but also the assets owned by the country.

Your cash may be negative and the country may have a debt outstanding but the total assets may be positive with no consequences as to debt transfer.

The max transfer is 5T. It is reduced because the value on game money increased over the past period.
The documentation will be updated.

My thanks for the response. Much better then testing it out and getting hit with debt. :P With the benchmark, it may not make sense to run it that far into debt then do the transfer due to the time it needs to be set up, vis the system not applying negative cash. I'll have to do some napkin math to see if it's feasible.

I'll stick with running each country into negative cash before release, as that is not applied; for now.

You just need to check the total assets of these countries and you will know what to expect if you close them.
