Hello, I have a few newbie questions about product quality. I know that higher quality raw materials make higher quality finished products. However, it seems that all products are either consumed by a country or used to make consumer goods and military weapons/ammo.

I'm not sure what effect (if any) product quality has for products your country consumes. I'm also not sure what effect higher quality military vehicles, bases, and ammo have on your military. Therefore:

- Is there a reason to get products higher than Q100 for your country's consumption?
- Do higher quality weapons and ammo have any effect on war?
- Also for upgrade products (quality, efficiency), facilities, transport infrastructure, and transport maintenance, does higher quality have any effect?

I've been confused about this for a while, any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

1. There is no advantage to buying higher quality goods for your country.

2. The game news seems to indicate that in the future weapons/ammo quality will have an impact on war. Also, it indicates that weapons/ammo quality will degrade over time. Presumably "training" will offset this.

3. I always have my corps buy quality upgrades. I only buy efficiency upgrades in my countries as it increases average salaries and taxes collected. I also have my CEO pay higher wages in my own countries as it is a way for my CEO to subsidize my countries.

Transport infrastructure - as far as I am aware the transport index is all that is important here. Maintenance is a line item in your budget.

Hope this helps.
