I should know the answer to the following question by now, but I don't. I have looked for the explanation ( I think I have seen something in the past but cannot find it now ) to no avail.
While I was diligently planning on how I was going to put away HI points in a Downfall game, it dawned on me that I do not know exactly what the hoarding of HI points really represents in game terms. In RL ( to state the obvious ) factories are either making stuff, or not. In game we have working industry, or repairing industry, or expanding industry. So why are we able to bank these points ?
This is NOT a complaint, or " game is broken " kind of thing. Most of you know me better than that. It is just a public display of my ignorance ( so please do not lower my self esteem, or make me feel bad about who I am. Be gentle, I may need a Blue Ribbon later because I am a special person. We are all special, And unique. And I am OK, and YOU are OK).
