1. Simcountry app - war process
We have upgraded the Simcountry app today to include fighting wars.
The new functions allow you to view the status of your wars on a mobile device, perform attacks and win a war from your phone or pad using the Simcountry app.
The added functions are extensive and include many war details, selecting targets, Selecting weapons for the attack, conducting attacks and they include all war reports in all details. You can view the results of the attacks you have carried out.
The only important function that is not yet included in the app yet is: War declarations.
Starting a war is only possible from the desktop. We will add the missing function ASAP.
There is no need to download the app again. If you already have the Simcountry app on your phone, you can just login and the new war functions will be part of the app.
2. More improvements to corporations
Another round of tuning of some corporations will reduce the numbers of workers in upgraded corporations and will improve the profitability due to lower numbers of workers.
With efficiency upgrades becoming more meaningful in terms of numbers of workers, Some corporations are using a smaller number of workers and some are using more robotics products. In general, we expect a decline of up to 3% in the number of workers in the corporations in each country.
There is also some effort to increase the numbers of some types of corporations.
Some products are used in very small numbers and it creates volatility in the availability and pricing of these products. We would like to make sure that all products in all worlds are produced by at least 30 corporations. This will prevent large fluctuations if several such corporations are closed.
There are two ways to achieve this. Reduce production per corporation or increase the use of such products. We have used both methods but the changes are small.

Price of Oil went up, but the price of all the raw materials to produce oil went up too, and now my Oil is less profitable than it was before the price increase. I don't see how this will stimulate Oil production, which has one of the largest shortages on LU. I produce 25% of LUs oil at the moment.

You need to stop building corporations in my countries. I have the automation shut off for a reason. I am on vacation, I come back to messages that my countries are running high debt. There is not one single red cent of debt in any of my countries.
STOP SCREWING WITH OUR ACCOUNTS WHILST WE VACATION. We pay money to play this game. Start respecting that and leave our accounts alone. Thank you.

I agree; I have been enduring this and just leaving it alone, but I'm getting tired of having to shut down corps. This includes countries that have an employment index of 80; that's not worth pushing more corps on me, many of them unwanted. I have auto build shut off, along with other auto features that would trigger it. I have plans for my countries, even with low indexes. It's something I'm working on and do not need intervention. It's costing me money. I'm asking for it to stop.

Oh, and well played. Strategic weapons maintenance can only be produced on FB (I presume because we can't on KB). So our Strategic weapons will soon be rendered useless.
Whats the benefit of this feature?

I've been complaining about having corporations built in my countries without my input as well. After they're built I run short of specific workers and this causes corporations to not work at 100%. When my finance index is over 180 there should be no reason for the game to build more corporations. Just because my employment isn't over 90 doesn't mean I need more corporations built that I never wanted. This really needs to change, the majority of active players on this game do not want more corporations built in their countries they didn't ask for. That's why there is a feature to auto build.
I know it's a "safety" feature to build corporations once the employment index goes below a certain number, which is silly if a player wants to close down a lot of corporations in a short period of time in order to move workers and build different corporations in their place. Honestly I think the game would be better if players chose an option to have no assists at all including the ones that we currently can not disable so that we have more control over our countries and corporations.
There should be an option to have no assists and I mean none at all including the ones that you can not turn off now because once players start understanding the game better and can manage their empire they will too complain about these features. I think this is hurting the game. I know NEW players need some help but once those new players become more experienced they'll soon too want to get away from this. I'm just putting my mind out there for this because I really enjoy this game and don't want to have annoyances like this.
I'm happy the game is changing. Do I agree with the changes? Not all of them but at least the game is always being updated. I'm trying to keep an open mind. Still, I think some of these "assists" need to be dealt with( either have an option to have these assists off or just remove them completely )first in my opinion.

You can block CEOs.
Go to settings and block CEOs if you do not want them.
However, these corporations contribute a lot to the country and pay not only taxes, but also a percentage of their turnover.
The best countries in the game have many CEO owned corporations.

We're talking about the automatic building of state corps which we don't want. My settings are set to not build, yet they still do.

Could you please give corps some robotics so that they don't shut down for 3 months when efficiency upgrades kick in. The only corps that get robotics at startup don't ever use them.
