Monopoly intrest check

Post by LordMoose » 22:10:53 Monday, 01 January, 2018

so I was thinking on running a capitalist game where everyone is given a pile of cash and told to become the wealthiest person
in game while attempting to bankrupt the other players, you would be allowed to invest into 5 major industries [mineral extraction
, power generation, shipping, manufacturing, and building].

with in this game you would have to contend with
- Different government parties and government groups
- Other Companies
- Investors split ideas and wishes
- Industrial Terrorism [depending on where you set up]
- Economical forces [bull/bear markets and sudden crashes]
- Lawsuits
- Corruption and kickbacks
- Natural and Manmade disasters
- Public Options and Protests
- Random Events and Actions

This [if this gets running] would be a very detail game based off real life [a lot], before I put the time into developing this
game I want at least 5 people seriously interested in this game. if you have any questions please ask [also with this game
turns will be slower than most other games]

one of the main things you will do with in the game is buy things, an example of a sale offer is the following
[google doc link https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M66 ... sp=sharing]
Three Sisters
Coal Fire
Power Plant
Otto_E._Eckert_Station.jpg

Sale Price - $354,746,992.01
Stats
Plant Type - Base Load [97.6% operation Rate]
Build - 1975
Location - Northern Detroit Michigan
Current Life Expectancy - 12 more years [current decommission date 2005]
Units - 3 [2 operational, 1 unoperational]
Nameplate Power Generation - 600 MW
Real Power Generation - 440 MW
Efficientiy - 34%
Quarterly Coal Communism - 736,870 tons [current]
Coal Stockpile - 4.80 million tons [6.52 quarters of operation]
Last Quarter Operation Costs - 23.20 million
Last Quarter Profit - 45.57 million
Last Quarter Net Profit - 22.37 million
Mis - estimated repair cost of unit 2 is 57.23 million along with 13.34 million in  miscellaneous repairs

Reason For Sale - The owning company United Electric declared chapter 11 bankruptcy 4 years ago, and with mounting costs needed to bring generator 2 back online after an explosion United Electric was forced to put the plant up for sale three years ago before any of the plan upgrades could be started [plans are included in the sale but not made public
You will be given info about what your buying [the info will vary in quality and quantity]. at this point you will be able to make an offer [either higher or lower than the asking price] or request further information on the item being bought

While the big items you buy are important there is a series of items that are even more important, consumables. these are items
like steel, ores, coal and other things that you would need to buy on a regular bases. There are currently three ways to buy
these items - Open Market, Futures and Special Deals.

Shipping Costs and Time have been removed, so they wont be in the game

note you can sell goods on these markets as well

Open Market - The open market is the simplest way to buy stuff like this, you simply buy up the supply that is currently sitting
in a warehouse somewhere. This global market place is however subject to more price movement due to outside scores and also
has the added time to transport the goods to where they are needed, forcing any needed purchase to be made in advance. One
bounce to the open market is that you [generally] know what the current supply is at any given time, meaning that supply crunches
are not a major worry

example
Average Coal Tonnage [ACT]
Cost - $24.47
Change - +0.87 [+3.5%]
Supply [estimated] - 1,973 million tons
Futures - Futures are similar to the open market in most ways expect that they attempt to predict the price and quaintly of coal in the future.
buying a future is more or less agreeing to buy a set amount of coal at a set price in a set amount of time. One plus/down side of this is that the price more than likely will change by that point, meaning that you could end up paying more or less for the item than you would on the open market [breaking a future is both illegal in most nations and can get you banned from making new futures and or downgrade your credit rating]. One plus side is since this sale is set in the future the shipping time is factored in [and you pay a reduced shipping cost]. One downside is that since you don't know the exact supply it is possible that the future falls threw due to supply shortages [at which point weird shit happens]

example
Average Coal Tonnage 2Q Future [so a future that is set to finish two quarters after it is bought]
Cost - $23.21
Change - -$1.26 [-5.1%] [the change can be driven by anything, in this case it would be driven by the expected weather]
Supply [estimated] - 1,743 million tons
Special Deals - Very similar to futures expect instead of being public there a private deal between a supplier and a company that is buying
[normally over a very large amount of the good in question]. Normally produces even better deals that futures

Example
Hzpen Mines - Juzen Electric ACT deal
Cost - $21.07 PT
Supply [estimated] - 2 million tons per quarter

keeping everything running is also a very important part, luckily everything will be condensed down into an easy to manage
sheet

example
Type - Power Plant
Name - Three Sisters Power Plant
SpoilerShow
Production - 440MW
Cost Q - 23.20 million
SpoilerShow
Coal - 18.50 million
Base Operating Cost - 4.70 million
N-Profit Q- 22.37 million
SpoilerShow
440MW sold at wholesale - 45.57 million
minus costs - 22.37 million
Miscellaneous - repairs needed on one generator and the sounding area
SpoilerShow
- estimated repair cost of unit 2 is 57.23 million
- 13.34 million in  miscellaneous repairs
Upgrades - Unit 1 and 3 have been approved to be upgraded from a 200MW system
to a 400MW system
SpoilerShow
Upgrade is estimated to cost 25 million apiece. Overclocking stays at 110%

sure

Also you can buy out smaller companies threw private deals [either by buying a controlling share/stake in them or having the owners hand over the company for a set amount] giving you control over everything the company had.

Also you will be able to automate your industries. [the amount and complexity is up to you to decide] But this will allow you to not have to slave over every little action for every building you have.

Note - the mining side of this game is still a heavy WIP

With mining in order to open a mine you will have to buy/ lease a bit of land and then invest in the capital to mine said region.
an example of these septs are bellow. Mining is a relative easy way to earn money but is risky due to the expected value not being
100%/unexpected shifts in mineral value or complications. Mining generally takes a long time as well

Note the overview and mineral value/mine costs covers all 50 lots for sale in this case while the picture only represents 1
[this is just to save time on my end to prevent hair pulling]

picture might be inaccurate, just for show. Note the dots are exploration drills to see what minerals are there
Lot 1004 - Lot 1054 Region 5
[West Plains]
example mine lease.jpg
Sale Price - $3.47 million
per lot
Stats
Overview - Some rolling steep hills with a large amount of small streams flowing threw the middle of the lots
[the rivers are protected by the government, they must not be blocked but can be rerouted].
The hills are a resulted of glacier movement millions of years ago

Lots for sale - 50
Expected cost to mine - Open Pit - 2.21 million, Closed Pit - 4.32 Million
Compilations - Sandy soil, prone to cave-ins
Expected Total Mineral Value - 9.87 Million
SpoilerShow
Red Dots - Gravel, Low Level Copper Ore [Shallow, in the hill]
Black Dots - Gravel, Low Level Copper/Sulfur Ores [Shallow, in the hill]
Purple Dots - Low level Silver/radium ores [Deep]
more on this in later

Mine Types

Open Pit [Above ground]
- Cheaper and a lot easier than closed pit mining, this style of mining
more or less creates a giant pit where you harvest the minerals. Very
environmentally damaging and due to its shallow nature leaves behind
the deeper minerals. Well suited for surface and shallow minerals

Closed Pit [Under Ground]
- A lot more expensive than open pit, this is your typical mine underground with
hallways allowing you to get at the minerals. less damaging but more prone
tp accidents and cave-ins. Leaves behind medium chunks of minerals due to
needing supports [this can be fixed to where you get the vast majority of the
minerals, but is terribly expensive]. Well suited for deeper minerals

Hybrid Pit
- A system where a pit is dug to get the surface and shallow minerals with tunnels
being dug to get the deeper minerals. More expensive than a closed pit mine but
allows both deeper and shallow minerals to be dug out

Deep Pit
- An extremely deep pit mine, very environmentally damaging and costly
but allows access to the deepest minerals along with everything above. These
types of mines are rather rare but well suited for high value or high mineral content
areas

Hill Mine
- Mines out a hill, allowing you to get total access to the minerals in that hill while
also removing said hill. very environmentally damaging
