We can see after several rounds of only penguins flapping around in Ibisha, the traders present decided to take matters in their own hands again. After supposedly wiping out the entire penguin population on the island, Ibisha is booming with not less than 5 players represented in the top10 turnovers.

Skyscraper loans

Since this round skyscrapers were added to the game. Houses don’t exist anymore. To open a bank account or to be partially save, you can live in a skyscraper. To fasten the build of skyscrapers at the start of the round, the federals allowed the national governments to hand out loans for these skyscrapers. But are they as good as they needed to be? 

To start off with, the skyscrapers are not cheap to build. For the first 10 floors as a base it will cost 20.000 to 25.000 ISH to build. You can build a smaller skyscraper, then you will save money on the first (base) build. But the problem i think that will occur is that an expansion of your current skyscraper is more expensive. So to start with and at the most cheapest is it better to build the first 10 floors for that 20-25k.

Now national governments can give loans up to 30.000 ISH to get skyscrapers early in the round quicker. But there are some things i and some others have noticed with the loans. First, to hand out the loan the treasury should have enough money to give the loan. At the start of the round, this is one of the hardest things. At the start of the round the treasury doesn’t have enough money to be able to give a loan. On the second day of the round it is possible, but only 1 loan. While the round is going the treasury should be able to hand out more loans.

But by the time the treasury has enough to hand out more loans, players themself are already able to build a skyscraper without a loan. The skyscraper loans are not necessarily needed anymore, altho you could use the loans to furnish the rooms better.

Another problem with the skyscraper loans is the interest that has to be paid everyday. The responsible official for the finances needs to give the order everyday to give a fine for the interest to the person who has the loan. Hereby the official needs to keep in mind the height of the loan. In Virtua the interest was adjusted when a part of the loan was paid back. With this, the official needed to keep a some sort of log to know if a fine was given for a certain day and/or was paid in time.

Not only the government official had a job with the loans. Also the FCS’s of a country had some work. They were the players that had to hand out the fines everyday and check whether the fine was paid on time. The FCS also had to give a fine to pay back a part of the full loan.

This sounds pretty easy to do, but it isn’t when you need to keep track of, for both the government official and the FCS. If a fine is not given for a day, it can destroy the whole system. Then the main problem will be, which fine is given to find out which fine is not given. When you found the missing fine, that can be solved.

Another thing is when you have multiple loans at the same time. If 1 fine is not given on time, it again destroys the whole system, but then it’s not traceable anymore, since there are more loans going. Then you just have to wonder, will the CBI or federals find the problem or not. It causes major problems if the system cannot be kept running. And it’s not easy to keep it running according to the system.

Some solutions appeared after the problem was known. Players started thinking on how to make this more easy for everyone. A solution was that you have a FCS responsible for every city where loans are handed out, or a FCS on 1 loan. The problem is, in Digitalia and Ibisha, this can be done, there are only 2 cities in Digitalia and Ibisha speaks for itself. But in Cyberia and Virtua, this is just not possible. The International Law only allows to have max 2 FCS’s in each country. Since Cyberia has 4 cities to keep track of and Virtua 3, this is just not possible. Or the law should be adjusted, that allows more FCS’s each country.

Another solution was using the same loan system for banks, but make it like in the playermanager, where a player can request a loan, the government gives the loan and everything goes automaticly. Or the government official is allowed to open a bank with a mv and use that bank as government bank. How the interest system works on the banks is something i’m not sure of and if this would help with the loans.

We will see what the federals will do to solve these problems. One thing i know and what i can tell you is that with the skyscrapers loans currently, makes just a mess. Something has to be done, before the loans are doable for everyone and before big fines from the federals or CBI will show up for the national treasury or the player self.

vNews will keep you up-to-date.

Reader’s letter – Finances

There are two kinds of parents in this world; those that guide their children to success by giving them good guidelines and rules to follow without cutting of their air supply and suffocating the life out of their soul, and then there are those parents who have life all figured out, and tell their children exactly how to live and what to do, they give them a plethora of rules that they must follow then wonder why their children are not succeeding.

More than a few rounds ago, I helped to start the movement to include laws in Virtua’s National Law book that covered the Local Government. These laws were meant to help unify and guide the cities of our great nation, without stifling the characters of each city, and without tying the hands of the mayors.

This round I returned to a sad worn out country that is scraping for survival. They have slipped so far from success that they have even considered surrendering their national identity and merging with another nation. This is not the Proud Nation I once knew. If you look at the law book of Virtua you can start to see the problem. I admit that I may have put some of the laws there myself, and even started the ball rolling, but I never meant for it to go this far. In today’s I would not be surprised to find laws limiting the number of shops someone could own, limiting the number of words one uses in a post, that tells the mayor what he has to name his roads, and what color he should paint the FES. There are so many laws, the breath is being squeezed out of Virtua.

A great example of this can be seen in the event of early this round. Moonpoker, a mayor in this country, though abrasive and mischievous at times, yet he has a proven track record of success as a mayor, was run out of town because he didn’t follow the “regulations” setup by the CoF. Let us look at this situation a little:

1. The Mayor manual says the mayor is to have his funds at his disposal… Funds were withheld.

2. The MM states that the mayor has the right to give mass subs, and taxes.

3. The Virtuan Law Book says that the CoF is to set regulation on Financial institutions and games of chance; and, they are to set a budget that tells how the cities will be funded.

4. The CoF has not posted any regulation for financial institutions or games of chance in the DoF. He has not done his job.

5. The CoF not only set a budget plan, but also put regulation on how the money was to be used. This is not what the law state, the laws says he is to tell how the cities will be funded, not how they are to use those funds.

6. By setting these regulation the CoF has violated the MM’s law of allowing the mayor to do with his funds as he pleases.

7. Moonpoker gave mass subs to help his city get going, then the CoF “punished” him (and his city) by withholding future funds because of this. As a result MP had to raise his VAT and tax his citizens to raise funds for exports. (Which he is legally allowed to do)

8. Because of MP’s legal actions that were a result of the CoF’s illegal actions the Council had him fired.

Do we see a problem? I hope it is clear to you now, many of the current council do not have the best interest of Virtua in mind, but only their own interests and designs for Virtua. They don’t care about Virtua and you, all they care about is things being done the way they want it. AND THEY WONDER WHY WE CAN’T BREATH!

I propose to you that we need a legal revolution! By that I mean two things: 1) the revolution must be legal. 2) The revolution is not a revolution of taking over a nation, but of liberating a nation at its foundation, at its roots, at its Law book! I propose that Virtua needs to tell its leaders “ENOUGH”! Enough of your tyrant ways, enough what your stifling “regulations”, enough of YOU! WE want our country back, we want to be proud of being a Virtuan, we want freedom, and not slavery.

Join me in pressuring our government to reform its detrimental ways, and into liberating the people and their cities!

Nater, A Virtuan for Virtua!
