I notice that my country is automatically requesting loans.


I'm in the process of selling off some corps and buying others out of debt, because I've got adequate funds to do so.

Yet my country seems to be panicking and automatically requesting loans it doesn't need.

Which is *REALLY* irritating because that's essentially just throwing money away on interest and/or penalties for early payback.

Is there any way to turn of "automatically request loans"?!! I don't see it in game settings.

If it isn't there it absolutely SHOULD be -- otherwise, as in this case, the player is essentially penalized for good financial management.

Also, I imagine this would be an EASY fix - simply add a new flag in the "automation" data structure for each company/enterprise and do a check against it before running the auto-get-a-loan routine.

A nice little addition would be to do that check in an if/else routine, so that if the country tries to get a loan, is prevented by the automation setting, and notices that the country's funds are *dangerously* low, then it sends itself a message to that effect to get the player's attention.
