Added to Government Cost The materials account was in the past used to represent cost made for materials (consumption products) used by the population. If the material account is negative, it means that the compensation by the population to the cost of these consumption products was insufficient and government is adding more money to reduce the negative total of the materials account. The material account is not used any more and any contributions by the government are only used to recover past cost. When the material account is closed to zero, it will be removed.

Asset Package An Asset package can consist of Gold Coins or Game Money and will in the future also include other assets like countries, enterprises and corporations. An asset package is created to allow for trading Simcountry assets outside the game.
Assets The assets of a country include the cash the country has, the value of all state owned corporations and the value of the shares the country owns in its public corporations. Debts are subtracted from the total and given loans are added. The assets are important as they make it possible for countries and enterprises to invest in growth. It is also possible to exchange cash assets into gold coins and use these for population transfers or to prevent resets.
Assets Index The assets index is a measure for the value of assets in the country. The index can be very high in very rich countries. The index depends on the value in cash plus the value of all the loans given to others, less the sum of the loans taken by the country. The index is increased by the value of all the corporations owned by the country.

Automatic Hiring Level Hiring levels in corporations can be set automatically. Using this function, you can set the automatic hiring for all corporations at once. The hiring level depends on the success of the corporations in selling their products and the settings of the production level for the following months. The hiring level will increase if the corporations are successful and try to increase production. The hiring level is limited to less than 10% change per game month. It will always be a number (percentage) between 0 and 100%.

If you want to change them by 30%, you can set the target and the changes will gradually take effect at 3% per game month until the target is reached. You do not need to manually change salaries each month to reach the required level. This function is used to set target salaries for all corporations at once. There are other functions available, also on this page, that make it possible to set individual salary targets per corporation.
Automatic Order Efficiency Upgrades Use of this function will result in automatic efficiency upgrading of all your corporations. The upgrading process will remain in force and will keep ordering upgrades for all your corporations. If sufficient numbers of upgrades are available on the market, the process will only depend on delivery time and will probably result in two upgrades per two game months. Your corporations will improve quickly and will reduce the number of workers they use but they will increase the numbers of high level workers, managers, high tech people and executives. When using this feature, you should be aware of the consequences in terms of numbers of workers and professionals that are needed and your education system should be capable of delivering these professionals. The cost of upgrades is also high. If 2 upgrades are delivered to each of your corporations once in two game months, the cost can run in many billions and your corporations should be able to pay the cost or pay the interest on loans if these are needed to pay for the upgrades. When the maximum upgrading level is reached, the process will stop and new upgrades will only be orders to restore the highest level each time an upgrade expires.
Automatic Order Quality Upgrades Use of this function will result in automatic quality upgrading of all your corporations. The upgrading process will remain in force and will keep ordering upgrades for all your corporations.

The quality of your products will improve quickly. To benefit from the higher quality, the trade strategy must be updated and a higher price can be obtained for the higher quality products. The trade strategy can be set for the offer price to follow the quality level automatically. The cost of upgrades is high. If 2 upgrades are delivered to each of your corporations once in two game months, the cost can run in many billions and your corporations should be able to pay the cost or pay the interest on loans if these are needed to pay for the upgrades. When the maximum upgrading level is reached, the process will stop and new upgrades will only be orders to restore the highest level each time an upgrade expires.

The base price does not mean much because it is overridden by the market price and the quality you purchase. It does give an idea about the relation between the base price and the market price. If the base price is higher, this could mean that there is a surplus while if market price is higher, there is probably a shortage of the product.
