Hey! New player and loving the game! But, I'm having some trouble figuring out what's happening. Sorry, but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help diagnose my game problems. First, here's a drive copy of my save file if anyone is willing.
This is a low population world, virtually zero free folk, and an almost empty map. My population and worker numbers keep fluctuating, and my production fluctuates between 40%-60%, which I'm sure is due to not having enough bodies to go around.
But, my revenue keeps fluctuating as well! I have 100% income tax, and %40 sales tax, as I recall. I'll make 800 credits one turn, with a 400 expenditure.
Then, the next turn, I'll only make 400 credits, with an 800 expenditure.
Then, the turn after than, I'll make 600 credits, with a 500 expenditure.
I can't figure out exactly what contributes to my income in the treasury screen, so I can't figure it out. It's driving me crazy. Why can't I see exactly where my money is coming from?
And because there's so few factions, only 5 on the map with 2 minors and 3 majors including me, the market doesn't sell for very much. Not that I have the worker points to mine a bunch of rare mental anyways.
Couple that with trying to solve logistical issues, and I'm in a bit of a bind. I have colonist recruitment set to zero, but I seem to keep recruiting them. Hopefully, it's not from my worker population.
Either way, if anyone is willing to help, I appreciate it! Getting a tad bit frustrated.
