That sounds like a great idea, could a coder tell us if it is possible? It sounds a lot like when the CCS crashes your raiding party after you leave, why can't you do the same?  Would also lead to lovely scenarios like assassinating prominent conservatives, seizing a supply of guns etc.

I've worked up some code for an improved budget screen.  The main amounts are right justified so the digits line up between large and small amounts.  This also shows the daily change in brackets.

At the bottom, it spins through all the locations and tallies up how much you can get if you sell off your spare loot (not counting what is equipped).

To go with that, I've also made the '$' key display the budget whenever you like, instead of only at the end of the month.

Note: In order to keep the savegame compatible, it doesn't remember the daily changes if you exit and restart.

I haven't played this in quite a long time, could anyone remind me whether the SEAL suit is better than Army Bodyarmour, armour-wise? I seem to remember something about SEAL suits being rather OP, and since I have 80 of 'em lying around... :P

The big advantage of the SEAL suit is its top-notch stealth rating.  Same protection from bullets.
The Army Bodyarmor is only better in that it has 2 professionalism.  And its super easy to collect at the army base.

SEAL suits are pretty easy to hoard once you get sieges from them 3 times a week. But really, great stealth rating for infiltration. If you want to bust some heads, or raid a CCS base then Heavy Ceramic is the way to go.

It actually took me a while to understand what "fight reverse discrimination" was since at face value that is a good thing.

So I probed my brain for a bit... and then I was like... "Ohh I know! The equal opportunity laws that give certain people better chances of being hired due to the rather discriminatory way the hiring process works".

How close was I?

Thanks guys.

@Neo: I think reverse discrimination means, basically, minorities getting better benefits etc. from the government, being more likely to be hired for jobs and such over majorities, ostensibly to prevent them being discriminated against.
I guess that's more-or-less what you said?

Update on the budget change:
It appears that other changes have already made 4.07.04 not compatible with previous saves, so I might as well implement it properly, even though that changes the save again.

Complaining about "reverse discrimination" implies that discrimination the non-reversed way was A-OK.  Can go long-winded about it if you like.  Affirmative action (what you're describing) exists to counter the effects of previous discrimination and restore a level playing field.

It seems that in this version there is no way to limit food and water to hostages. Is it just me or was that feature cut out?

I removed them. It was controversial. I wanted the system to be easier to understand, but a lot of people felt the removed thematic interest those options provided outweighed any benefits in simplicity.

I maintain my support for the old enlightenment system. It was far more fun to do the carrot, stick, and LSD-instead-of-water dance to cause Stockholm Syndrome.

It is sad how true this is. You literally beat them so much, then send in the most interesting man in the world to tell them that you are doing them a kindness by not beating them more.

Please reintroduce them, they made enlightenment so much more interesting.

Also, can we get an .exe of the latest version soon? It seems like there's been a lot of work done on it since this thread was updated.

This, it's so confusing trying to find the latest version of this game.
