Company Finances Window and Set date

Post by BILLYBATHGATE »

Hi there ,

Just a quick question . If you reset the date of a game 2042 , back to 1912 , is it possible to get the finances to re-appear in the
company finances window , Thanks .

Well, it looks like the game gets confused when you use the cheats window to set the date back before the original starting year of the game. Quite the corner case, but it seems like a bug.

The game doesn't save any book data other than those you can see in the finances window and graphs windows right now. You can't see long past years' results by cheating time backwards.

the finances window cannot show any data, if you cheat the year back before the original start date of the map.

Keeping a company's complete financial archive is a feature I'd very much like to see added.

I think it would be more reasonable for the finances window to display the numbers for the past few years without regard to the numbers of those years and their relation to the current year.

For example, if the player starts the game in 2000 and plays for two years, then changes the time to 1950, and after a year changes the time to 2000 again, at the end of the fourth year the finances window should display numbers for years 2000, 2001, 1950 and 2000, in that order. The two entries for year 2000 actually correspond to two different years, so the numbers probably won't be the same. This also applies to the profit graph.

After all, statistics for the past years and the number of the current year are orthogonal parts of gameplay that don't affect each other.
