Expenses.jpg [814.32 KiB]

I have started a game in 1800, and I began to overspend quite a lot of money. I used the cheats to borrow £10mln, but the money just kept going down anyway. I took a look at the balance sheet and found that I am somehow losing over £1mln a year to "Other" expenses. Where on earth is that money going to? Is it to do with using that cheat?

It is, effectively, an annual tax on your company's value and all your economic activity that you see in the expenses window. I'm going to take a guess that the reason this is so high is because you have inflation enabled in the game settings, which is known to be pretty much broken if you're using NewGRFs and you're playing outside of TTDs original game range of 1950-2050.

I had inflation off, but I suppose it must be because of that £10mln I borrowed. Thank you!

Not only bribing, but also doing good things like funding new buildings, or making a big advertisement campaign.

Sorry for late reply, but no, I haven't. Anyways, I got it sorted - ships are your best friend if you start the game early
