|Retract Offered Products||No description available yet|
|Road Index||The road index is one of the three components of the transportation index. The road index depends on the total length of roads in the country and the length of roads needed. If the length needed is equal to the length of the existing roads, the road index will move gradually to 100.|
The transportation index tends to move in the direction of the lower of the three partial indexes: the road index, the railroad index and the water treatment index.
It does not make sense to increase only one of the three components because the transportation index will remain similar to the lowest of the three.
Increasing the road index is easy: just build new roads and the index will increase.
|Roads||Changing the percentage will not remove any roads in your country. It will only influence the percentage of the roads that will be shown on the map.|

|Sale Strategy||This part is about deciding on a sale strategy for all the corporations you control in one single setting. The sale strategy is important because it has a major influence on your capacity to sell the products that are produced by your corporations and receive a reasonable price. Setting the sale strategy for all the corporations does not mean that the setting will be the same for all but rather, the setting may be different but the method used to decide on it in each corporation, is the same.|

|School Index||The school index is one of the three components of the Education index. The school index depends on the number of elementary schools in the country and the number needed. If the number needed is equal to the number available, the school index will move gradually to 100.|
The education index tends to move in the direction of the lower of the three partial indexes: the school index, the high-school index and the university index.
It does not make sense to increase only one of the three components because the education index will remain similar to the lowest of the three.
Increasing the school index is easy: Build new schools but always make sure you have teachers. If you don't have the teachers you need, some schools will be closed.

|Sell Directly||No description available yet|
|Sell Strategies||Sell strategies are needed for corporations to sell their products on the market. Corporations are interested in the highest possible price for their products but they also want to be sure that the products are sold. They can make a choice of one of the available sell strategies and make a tradeoff between price and the chance of selling. One sell strategy is to offer the products at market price less a percentage or if products are in short supply, ask for several percents above market price or use a strategy that asks for a fixed price. Another strategy trails the product quality by several percentage points which keeps the products competitive but also makes use the advantage of higher price for higher quality products.|
|Sellable Cargo Shuttles||No description available yet|
|Selling Best Price||This option will make all product offers put on the international market at market price. It means that the price is flexible and the chance to sell the product is quite good. Products will not always sell if the market has a large surplus of the product offered. When a product is sold for market price, the real price you receive will be that market price multiplied by the quality of the product you offered. If the product quality is 140, the selling price will be 1.4 times the market price.|
|Selling Following Product Quality Lower||This is the change percentage per game month in case the products remain unsold. If you fill in 5, the price will be decreased by 5% each game month. A negative number will cause the price to increase which does not make much sense when products remain unsold.|
|Selling Following Product Quality Lower AC||This is the change percentage per game month in case the products remain unsold. If you fill in 5, the price will be decreased by 5% each game month. A negative number will cause the price to increase which does not make much sense when products remain unsold. This setting will apply to corporations.|
|Selling Following Product Quality Start AC||This is the trailing percentage for the products offering. Example: If the product quality is 150, and you fill in -10, the offer price will be 140 and it will follow the quality changes. This setting will apply to all corporations.|
|Selling on Common Market Contracts||This is the quantity that is selling on the Common Market. These contracts are between corporations in the country, selling products they produce, to the common market, through contracts.|
|Selling on International Contracts||This is the quantity of products selling through contracts with other countries that are not part of the local or the common market. These contracts are between corporations in the country, selling products they produce, to any other country or corporation.|
|Selling on Local Market Contracts||This is the quantity that is selling on the Local Market. These contracts are between corporations in the country, selling products they produce, to the local market, through contracts.|
|Selling Time Based||This sale strategy sets the initial price you want to receive as market price plus or less a percentage you choose and the price will be changed by another percentage you choose, each month it remains unsold. Example: you can put the products for sale at market price less 2 percent and reduce the price by another 3% each month the products remain unsold. The price will be at market less 5% after one month and market less 8% after two months. The chance to sell the products will increase because they become cheaper each month. The real price you receive if the products are sold, depends as always also on the quality of the products.|
|Selling Time Based Following Product Quality AC||This sale strategy is designed to follow the product quality. Corporations can upgrade their production process and their products become better. Their quality is higher and they can fetch a better price on the market. This mean that you will need to increase the requested price from time to time to follow the quality or otherwise your price remains low while the products quality is increasing. Using this sale strategy, you can have you offering price follow the product quality. You can also decide to trail the product quality by a certain percentage. Example: you can decide to put your price at 10 points lower than the quality. If the product quality is 150, you will offer the products at 140. If product quality goes up to 155, you price will automatically go up to 145. This setting will apply to all corporations.|
|Selling Time Based Lower||This is the change percentage you can choose to change the price each game month if the products remain unsold. If you fill in 5, the price will be reduced by 5% each game month. If you fill in -5, the price will increase by 5% each game month. This will not make much sense because if the products are not selling, it does not make much sense to increase their price.|
|Selling Time Based Start||This is the initial price setting when you use the time based pricing. You can set the initial price higher or lower than the market price. If you fill in 5, the initial price will be market price plus 5%. If you fill in -4, the initial price will be market price less 4%.|

The table also shows how much product was offered on the market and how much product is requested. The difference is the surplus of product (shown in green) or in some cases the shortage (shown in red). It is important to view this table and understand what products are available in large quantities and which ones are in short supply. It is likely that if there is short supply, prices will go up and if a surplus is shown prices will probably go down. The situation will change with time because users who see large shortages, will build new corporations that make products that are in short supply.|

|Strategic Attack Consequences||Starting a nuclear war is considered a bad move for any country. It might be unavoidable under some circumstances, for example: if your country is facing destruction.

Nuclear weapons are very expensive and have very long delivery time.|
|strategic force||This is the part of the army that operates the strategic weapons. These are mainly nuclear weapons and missiles that may cause massive damage and kill many people. Nuclear weapons should not be used easily. Their cost is immense, delivery times are very long and their destruction power can be diminished when defence is very strong. Nuclear weapons will become more exclusive in the game and subject to decisions by the security council. They will cause even more destruction and nuclear pollution that will extend beyond the attacked country and may anger neighbours who are damaged by pollution from these weapons.|
