I'm going to be making some improvements to shares.
For a complete overview of the changes I'm planning, see this url:

This is part 1, its a small GUI overhaul
The only change in this patch is that all of the owners of a company are now properly listed, and they are under the heading "Company owners:" This is to make way for the future overhaul of shares.
This patch will cause the company window to grow or shrink depending on the number of owners.
This patch also causes the current company to be listed as an owner, so if no-one has bought shares, the current company will be 100% owner. If someone buys 25% of the shares, the current company will become 75% owner, etc etc. If 4 different companies own 25% each, the current company will not be listed.
This patch does not in any way affect the way shares are handled by the game. It is merely a cosmetic patch.

I think that the line with "self-ownage" should be painted in another color, so you will more easily recognize that it is you. Or perhaps replace the company name by string like "owned by itself" too.

agree with T-UnitT-Unit wrote:It would be better if it was the name of the Company Owner.
Btw.: I always missed the possibility of emitting new shares like I was used to do back then when I was no Transport but a Railroad Tycoon.
Am I overruled? Is the manager in 100% possession of is company by default? And is she/he neither asked if shares she/he owns are sold nor is accounted the value of those?
Maybe if you open your eyes you will see that is has "manager" in (brackets)Ammler wrote:Hmm, how does a company own itself? Shouldn't the owner be the Manager then?
@dibsen: When you set up a company you own the whole company as you will be putting in the money for it, or borrowing it from the bank against your own collateral. Therefore the manager owns 100% of the shares until they decide to go public and sell them off.
