Upgrading the Simcountry user interface

The Simcountry user interface is undergoing some changes, aimed at easier use and the eliminations of feature duplication.
The share market related commands and menu options appeared both on the left pane and on the top of the page menu.
The top of the page menu option is now eliminated and the share market related features are only on the left pane on the country home page.

We have reorganized these features in tabs and simplified the interface.
The investment funds tab shows an error. It will be fixed ASAP.

More such changes are being prepared.

Weapon Ranges

As discussed and promised before, we have reduced the range of some very long range weapons, including some defensive weapons.
The reductions are applied to defensive missiles and helicopters but also to several offensive weapons and strategic weapons.
The details are in the weapons document.

The range of transport airplanes is increased from 10.000 to 13.000, making it easier to deploy units to a larger distance.

The Score

We have update the Simcountry score. We have lifted the score numbers a bit to help eliminate negative scores as a result of penalties to award winners.
We have also updated some of the score factors to reflect the current status of the game. For example, we have increased the weight of the financial index and of the welfare index.

The page showing score factors is improved to reflect current value.

Also the documentation is now describing the score components in more details.

Many Corporations Are Becoming Larger

The changes are not large and in many cases are around 1% to 2%.
This is the second round of increases in corporate size. More will follow.

Natural resources corporations

Natural resources corporations also increased in size. The increase is about 3%. They also increased their sales and profitability is up.

We expect natural resources corporations to show excellent profitability.

Upgraded page: Corporations using a certain Product

The page that shows the list of corporation types that are using a certain product is improved.
The page used to show the number of corporations in the world using a specific product.

It now also shows the amount of product that is used each month.

The upgrade will be completed and installed on all worlds after the next month run on all worlds.

The investment funds tab does not work, it will be fixed.
It is mentioned in the game news.

On ranges, we had several recommendations and this is what we have chosen for now.

Thanks Andy for fixing the bug.

Amalie,

Thanks for alerting me.
You might be right.
There is a possibility that the weapons range items were not properly included in the upgrade.

Not 100% sure so I will do it again.

This is an updated version of this text.

The error in the investment funds tab is indeed fixed.

Additional updates related to the April 12 upgrade:

Repeating the weapon ranges update

Possibly, some of the range updates escaped the upgrade on April 12.
We have repeated the procedure.

Corporations

More increases in corporations to increase the number of employees, increase the production capabilities and increase the profit potential of many corporations.

The changes are not large and do not include all corporations. Only a limited group of corporations are updated in each round.

The total effect on employment is however quite large, involving hundreds of thousands workers and these changes are accumulating.

Reducing extreme shortages

Several products are showing very severe shortages that are increasing significantly over time and reach levels that cannot be corrected easily.

We have increased the production capacity of several types of corporations to try to soften the shortages.
These include several maintenance product but especially Defense weapon maintenance. Also military services and medical equipment.

The changes will not radically change the situation but will contribute to a decline in the monthly difference between the produced and consumed products.

Corporate profitability

The profitability of many types of corporations may increase.
the market value of corporations will probably stay unchanged or even decline a bit.
Natural resources corporations, as we said before, are becoming more profitable and their market value will probably follow the higher returns.

On WG in May 4687 there was a jump in the need for executives. Not sure what happened, I didn't open any new companies. My two countries needed about 4,000 and 13,000 more executives overnight. Is this part of the updated employment? I thought it was posted here that it wouldn't be extreme.

TM, The updates are never extreme (lol). I hadn't gotten back to 100% employment from the last one. I try to keep 96% employment with 100% hiring. I've started closing corps and IPOing to my CEO and moving corps out of country. Gonna take a lot of clicks to straighten this out, but it can be done.

I can't be bothered to move and IPO over 100 corps so I'm going to leave it and then if it wrecks my economy I'll blame Andy.

These constantly moving goalposts have ruined the game for me. I haven't made any progress for real months because I'm constantly running to keep up with game changes.

I'm only still playing to harvest crypto.

The increase in size of corporations had three rounds so far and indeed, it sapped many unemployed and created some shortages.
I am to blame but we need the increase in size.

The process will continue but at a lower pace, trying to prevent large shifts.

Amelie,

The range is now set to 13000.
It was 13000 also in the previous upgrade.

I wonder how you measured it and know what exactly the range is.

there is a slight chance that the number is set twice which would be an error but errors happen.
I will try to find out.
