What exactly are maintence products and can I control them. I have some corps using over 1b a month of them and it is killing my profit. And what is a good range for corp salaries ??

Yes you can control them.

I thought it was the exact same thing as "factory maintenance units". On closer look the cost of maintenance products is 2X the of the raw material FMU used.

You can buy low quality FMUs but then your products will be less valuable.

You can build corporations and then not upgrade them.

In many cases the increased revenue from high quality and lower salaries from high effectivity will pay for the cost of maintenance.

Paying high wages increases output. High wages are nice because you get income taxes. High quality raw materials and higher wages will dilute the cost of the FMUs.

I don't think that is it. I am looking at CEo corp in my country. Using same number of FMU at roughly the same cost, pay his cost for maintence products used is a third of mine. Any more thoughts anyone..

I noticed the cost to be huge while a corporation is upgrading. Also country controlled corporations pay lot more on maintenance products used then CEO controlled corporations to keep CEO controlled corporations competitive.
