Closure of Natural Resources Corporation

If a Natural resources corporation closes because of lack of materials or lack of workers, the remaining natural resource in the ground, remains available.

the remaining natural resource reserves in the ground remain available and a new corporation can be constructed in the country to use the available resource.

Before, when such a corporation was closed, the remaining resource was lost.

we promised to add this feature at the time natural resources were introduced into Simcountry.
It took some time to implement and it is now available.

If the corporation closes when the natural resource runs out, there obviously no remaining resource to preserve.

Moving corporations

The feature is available in Simcountry for a very long period.
We are not sure that the exact conditions are known to players.
here is how it works.

General conditions when moving corporations

The corporation age must be > 48 game months old.
The corporation was not moved in the past 48 game months.
The new country where the corporation is moving to, must have availability of at least 100% of the needed work force in all categories.
Limitations as to the max number of corporations owned by a single CEO must not be exceeded. Not in your own countries and not in foreign countries.
The target country does not block CEOs.
The target country should not have other requests for new corporations or for the move of other corporations into the country at the same time.

Conditions for moving a corporation at no cost:
A corporation can move out at no cost if:

The source country has no president.(C3). The move is immediate.
The president of the source country has sold population. (in the last real month).
The tax rate in the source country is above 40%.
The corporation is damaged. The reason could be war or a rebellion.
The Production in the corporation is limited by non availability of manpower even though corporate salaries are above government salaries. The corporation must have a hiring target of 100%. It may produce at a lower level but its request for workers, at any level, is not fulfilled.

Military Units Supplies

Military units need supplies.
to move, they need Gasoline or Aircraft Fuel.

shortages can occur and the units are then stuck and unable to move, move back from another country etc.

The shortages can become very large and resupply can be difficult.
the reasons for huge shortages are in general, the long time these units remain without supplied.

There could be more reasons but as of now, we did not discover any.

We have now limited the amount of shortage a unit can have.
Letting units go into huge shortages does not make sense and makes it impossible to fix in some situations.

we hope that this change will have the desired effect.

We will continue to monitor existing cases and communicate with players.

if this change is not sufficient, we will try to continue and resolve the problem.

Corporations in C3 Countries

We have limited the number of corporations in C3 countries.
Until now, the automatic procedure that manages the creation of new corporations in C3 countries had the possibility of overshooting and sometimes created too many corporations.

Corporations in C3 countries have an important function in preventing very large shortages and in balancing the market.

when C3 countries create too many corporations, they are unable to hire all the workers they need and work at lower capacity.

the change, limiting the number of such corporations, will have an influence on the general market. It will materialize during a long period.

C3 countries will not create new corporations if the country has more than 14 state corporations and if the country does not have all the workers needed for the corporation.

Hi Andy

I'm encountering a problem with supply units in my country Megatron on FB. I think it could be related to this.

Anyway the problem is my Garrissons wont come back. They've been stuck for a real day and a half. I can change the garrison templates and they'll do that but when I got to undefended my supply units do nothing. For 1 day. I want to pull all the weapons back into my stock.

Also I cant relocate objects on my map, Every time I try I get the Sry unable to relocate message. Somehow I think both could be related???

Can you have a look pls?

The whole game needs a good de-bug, I've noticed several issues. like when you click back on certain pages and it takes you to your home page. there's several minor 1's

Whatever this supply issue is, sounds like the GM's aint sure whats causing it?

My issue is very frustrating

Corporations in C3's

There seems to be a problem with CEO's being allowed to build in C3's that do not have enough workers. I've seen several C3's with new corps while existing corps are at 5% hiring.

Here is an example, White Giant, La Republica del Xihun. The Gamemaster corp Akot Wood is located there.
There are six corps in that country that have been at 5% hiring for at least 18 months, yet a new corp was built in the last 12 months.

Closure of Natural Resources Corporation

If a Natural resources corporation closes because of lack of materials or lack of workers, the remaining natural resource in the ground, remains available.

Does this also apply if the corp goes broke?

On WG Coal and Mercury are trading at rock bottom prices with the corps loosing money. It seems the mining balloon has burst.

I think I was clear about what happened to units stuck abroad with supply shortages.

you could always bring them back but you needed to resupply them before you try to move them back.

first we reduced the max shortages to make that easier, then, we came to the conclusion that it is too complicated, and made it possible to move them back anyway.

It is resolved and players who had a problem confirmed that it works.

The entire air transport became simpler and more usable.

Natural resources

If such a corporation closes and not because the resource is depleted, then the resource will remain available in the ground.

It does not matter how it closes. bankruptcy, shortage of workers, losses or the president closes it, the resource will remain in the ground.

Resupplying Military Units

There are several conditions that must be met for this to work.
You need enough units to go around.
You need all the materials in the country;gasoline, aircraft fuel, military supplies. You need ammunition and replacement weapons if some are destroyed.
You need trucks to shlep all this to the units.

Make sure you have everything before you conclude that it does not work because it does.

Building in C3 countries

It is now easier than before.

the reason is the smaller number of corporations in C3 countries.
In the past they used to build too many and had workers shortages.
now, they must have 100% of the workers needed to build and they stop building automatically if the country has 15 or 16 corporations.
the number might increase a bit but we are not going back to 30 corporations as before.

All C3 countries now have enough unemployed workers to build at least one corporation.
