At 30 g.c. a month for an enterprise, and each g.c. worth about $200 billion, how can enterprise produce enough game money($6 trillion/month) to pay for itself?

1 trillion a game month.

Unfortunately, the math for the end result after 30 days is sooo curaaaaazy!

But as noted I seem to be missing some cash after a few updates. But let's say I maintain 1Trillion per game month.

1Tril per game month = 5gc
6gm months per 24 hours = 30gv
30gc per real day in a month(30)'

I should make give or take 900gc. I haven't exchanged much CEO money for GC, so I definitely know sumthing is missing from my cash.


And my FB CEO I've had, or actually maintained for less than a real month. So this is what you could reasonably expect to build up in the next 30 days.

Bling N Things on FB with <200 corps I am jumping between 180B and 300B per gm month

The reason I mention this enterprise this is important. If I take the low end of my profit scale 200B that is 1/5 or 20% of the toal on I make on LU. 20% of 900 is around 180gc.

So in less than 2 real life months, whatever enterprise you want to start should be paying for itself and then some.

Kluas one way to get a lot of money is by C3 raiding countries (if you own a country that is) and then transfer all the looted money into your enterprise via the simcountry portal menus, and it's not a waste of life like you mentioned before on my thread Psycho honey, I bet thats how you managed to earn your billions when you first started this game.

Nope, I nuked and Pillaged asshats, a wasteful endeavor and, I 'The High Profite$$ Eternal' had become very crafty at finance. I was around when when regular 4 wing c3s had up to 20 trillions sitting in them for whatever reason. But I was not amused with the amassing of wealth, I had used pillaged c3s to punish mine enemies.

My opinion still stands c3 raidng, at low levels sux major *&^$$&# and is not a good time/profit ratio for me to be assed with such silliness.

All that going in circles, buying ammo, making and remaking units, gawds-awful painting of maps, the bog on the server on top of all that.... is a waste of my life... and too much effort for such marginal gains. Maybe less financially fortunate Players find it worth their time, and it is possibly possible that we really valuer our time differently. My time is precious, therefore I'd rather not waste it, as it is an invaluable resource. A fraction of the effort it takes to perform repeated c3 raids is all that is needed for you to see that you can make enough money economically to realize it is a fruitless endeavor.

Most players that are high level raiding for the 'supposed' 15 trillion per c3 do so because they suck at finance, rely on raiding free countries or inactives to pay for their armies, and so on(See AAAAARGH or 'bring back the raids' threads). I dare any of them to deny it and I will prove them to be asses right here, right now.

None of the economicaly successful players in this game burn time away with ridiculous c3 raiding. Just the b00bz pretending.

I mean TBH James, I know you aren't making much money cuz your with that IDC, and you read those lamo noob help threads on Church of SimCountry. John Fire/Scarlet, the author of those manuals, never made half the bank I made, and he was playing longer than me. I mean, if you are a n00b, then those manuals are very good to start with. 90% of the information there is adapted from Sim 3.0 and is obsolete info by now. Not that he made any success in 4.0 which is proly why he left(Just a guess IDK}....

Forget your emotions, and what you think you know.

There is a clear example to compare the 2 methods of wealth accumulation(if you can even, count raiding, bah!)

There, my CEO with almost no effort, is set to make around 900gc this month!

List for me the process of each 'click' and time spent rading. Let me know how much you make 'on average, per c3, and at what war level' I think you are at level 3. And anyone following the method will most likely be new and no higher than war level 3 at best.

let me know when you exchange cash from raiding for even, let's just say half of my projected CEO earnings... 450.

I log in 2 twice a day, to buy a booster, purchase some supplies, and watch my money grow.

Less than 15-20 clicks and I'm outta here.

Next Real month, if you are close to exchanging cash from raiding for 450 gc. Just know I was doing nothing while you were breaking your mouse, and killing your eyes.

No comparison, my son.

Well I never bothered reading those threads from church simcountry or any of that bollocks thats where you're wrong. I figured a lot out of this economic side of game myself, I know how to make money from my corps and of how business works in real life. Its just money in this game never comes in fast enough for me and when people like you have the monopoly in this game, like certain businesses have in real life, new players don't stand a chance making a profit from the corps and ultimately quit this game.

maybe? I understand this a lot more than you think, well maybe not in this game, but in real life here in the UK, I damn well do as I ran 2 little businesses myself not long ago, but fierce competition with the huge businesses like supermarkets for example can buy a huge load of goods for a discounted price as they can barter about with their suppliers for a much lower price than what they're asking for, as a result they can sell their goods on to the customer for a cheap price, it gets the suppliers mad in this country. Maybe I should'nt be talking about this blueserpent as you probulary don't know what the word barter means.

Also supermarkets here don't hire that many full time staff as they prefer part time staff so they dodge paying some form of tax to the government and not pay the staff holiday pay, and I know that as a fact

I thought the topic was GAME related, not r/l.

My answer was directed at your GAME econ knowledge

Why on earth wouldnt i know the meaning of the word barter? lol

I don't know but you'll be surprised of how many don't, and I suppose it is supposed to be game economy knowledge but I can get carried away sometimes.

Snotty little shit isn't he. You have the nerve to say he doesn't know what the word Barter means. Wow.

He wasn't assuming you didn't know, his ignorance just got the best of him. Ugh.

After a statement like that, why would anyone other than scarlet, who has the same demeanor as you exhibited, want to know you? You have the "I'm so smart... you must be Stupid Syndrome." Very repulsive.
