I have gone back and forth on releasing the hard numbers for how much stuff costs, and I do see why it seems fair to let you know them. However, I also worry about people figuring out how best to game the formulas and increase their income fairly rapidly (which would be fairly easy to do). This would only give the rich nations an even greater advantage than they already had.

I say: Give numbers for specific questions. If we want to build the Gothard Tunnel, for example (actual construction started 1871) it would be ok to give us an estimate of the costs in money units, with the usual caveat that actual costs may be higher. Or if I want to recruit 10,000 soldiers, I would have a fairly good idea of what it'll cost me, so I should be able to ask Perth.

Just roll a dice to determine how accurate the cost prevision is. There can always be unexpected circumstances, or disasters, that make things more expensive (or even cheaper).

The Update will not come this weekend.


Likely, it will come mid-week next week. (Wednesday or Thursday)


I'll be finishing up a large term paper this weekend.

Not sure. I'm much busier this week than I expected and next week is final exams week.

After next week though, I am much less busy.

I know I said this last week, but I should be able to do it midweek this coming week.

I'm officially done with this semester of school after Tuesday, so my free time opens up. A lot.

May i suggest a section on the first post of the game thread where we would have links to every update, mini-update and stats updates?

On the other WiR we have something similar and it is VERY useful, if you plan on doing this here it is better to do it while we haven't had a big number of updates already.

For Frymonmon, somenoe from Paradox will probably remind him about that when he gets online...hopefully it will be soon

Perth I'd say just write the update and post it and if people send in orders later edit them into the update. Also you should probably give us a deadline for orders at the end of each update for the next one.
