The Simcountry app
New navigation features are added to the Simcountry app as part of a longer term push to improve the user experience and bring the feature set more in line with the desktop version. A navigation bar has been added to all relevant pages.
The population in countries without a president and the population in countries that belong to free accounts is limited. Population growth is also limited and these countries will have a total population under 20 million.
Once the account becomes a full membership account, population growth is boosted and numbers start growing much faster.
Larger population allows for fast economic growth and much better results.
New players gifts
New players who login into Simcountry get awarded during the first weeks with population boosts and Large donations of game money. The monthly budget of their countries is also supported with external cash to prevent shortages.
In time, both budget contributions and other special presents are fading and the country is on its own.
Data base issues in Simcountry - all resolved
Several weeks ago we have mentioned the large size of some database tables in Simcountry and the intensive processing required each game month to process all transactions.
In the meantime, we had a "soft landing" and all extreme sizes and excessive numbers have receded. The main reason for this is the return to "normality" of both populations and corporations in all worlds, smaller numbers of corporations that produce more and population in free countries returning to their normal range.
The reduction in the number of corporations was achieved but tuning countries without presidents to close corporations that were producing at a very low level for too long. This resulted in many closed corporations. Other corporations in these countries were able to increase hiring while not creating new corporations as long as hiring is not at 100%.
Some types of corporations increased their production slightly, and their hiring too, reducing unemployment and the need to create new corporations.

Andy, Jonni, GMs,
So I've noticed C3 populations are on the rise, and birth rates in Premium countries have been increasing for days. Has there been a change of plans? Last we heard, we were decreasing population sizes. Have we changed course now that the databases are no longer overloaded?
