"no they don't cost that much. to think that an auto plant costs more than a billion is nieve. all a factory is is a steel frame with sheet steel siding. even the largest factories in the world don't cost more than a few million dollars, 100 million would build you the largest building ever concieved. machinery for production only runs a few 100 million at most. add it all up and you still haven't exceeded 1 billion. production plants in SC can even run as high as 5 to 6 billion....realism? I think not. "

Wow. You really don't know much about manufacturing plants, do you? A few million dollars? The largest (by floor area) manufacturing plant in the world cost $200 million in 1966, which is $1.1 billion in 2003 dollars. That's not even close to the most expensive plants. Semiconductor corporations are throwing down billions for new fabs all the time. Intel actually spend $2 billion just converting an existing plant to a new process.

Yes, no single production plant is likely to hit $5 billion, and that certainly is not the average price. But the average simcountry corporation also has fantastic production and sales. The $E isn't pegged to a real-world value, so all the prices are rather inflated compared to reality.
