PROPOSED OR IMPLEMENTED CHANGES TO STYRIA1840
The following changes have been made:
1.) Murau has now a demand for coal.
This change will make coal deliveries to the depot in Murau count toward Industrial Profits of the Steirische Kohlen AG. This will help to prevent points lost due to the non-servicing of the coal industry. Previously the only benefit associated with those deliveries was a small delivery bonus basically just paying for the transportation costs.
2.) A new Company (Beratungshaus Martineau & Mathy - Chairman Jay Gould) has been added.
This company will have stock ownership in several other companies making Stockmarket play a bit more interesting and also increase the map difficulty score.
3.) Several players/companies have an increased ownership of their companies or other company shares.
Beratungshaus Martineau & Mathy as an example owns 60% of its own stock and with the other industrial companies own more than 50% of stock in each of those companies. This will help to make the acquisitions of the A.I. companies more difficult and hopefully will be foiling attempts to acquire those companies in order to avoid servicing their industries. Stockmarket savvy players will still find a way to overcome that hurdle however.
4.) Rewording of some dialogs.
The wording in the dialog box for the Upper Feistritz Valley log delivery requirement has been slightly modified to make it clearer as to where the logs are to be shipped.
Just fine-tuning delivery requirements to prevent players from dropping off Styrian loads in the provinces and then bringing them back as loads from the provinces.
Still to be done:
1.) After failed log deliveries Archduke takes back money he never gave.
Under certain (unusual) circumstances the Archduke never offers the Log delivery requirement and never pays you the bonus upfront yet when the logs are not delivered demands his money back.
If there are any additional changes to be made please let me know.
