Editing Sponsors

Manutoo, would you please explain the following terms found in the sponsor descriptions?
Length Bonus
Wage Scale
Objective Percent
Advantage

And would you please explain in each case whether making the number higher makes the contract more favorable to the player, or if making the number lower would be more advantageous.

Also, is there a way to set the tax rate for sponsorships, or is it determined randomly? (I see where the 10-30% range is mentioned.)

Also on the topic of finances, are the tournament purses supposed to be fair representations of 1990, or are they supposed to represent the money that would be given out today? The expenses would seem to more accurately reflect 1990.

Thank you for your help with this. :)

Hello,

ok, you're talking about the "Sponsor.ini" file...

LenghtBonus defines the bonus that you'll get if you go on with the same sponsor for several years ; for example : 1.05 => +5% if 2-year contract; +10.25% for 3 years; +21.55% for 5 years
So the higher, the more money when the contract will be more than 1 year.

WageScale defines the value to scale the default wage. The default wage depends of the reputation.
So the higher, the more money the player will get.

ObjectivePercent defines how much money the player will get on Objective completion. It's a percent of the yearly wage (or of the total wage if contract lasts less than 1 year).
So the higher, the more the player will get when completing an objective.

Examples with Default yearly wage = 1'000'000 :
WageScale = 1
ObjectivePercent = 0.1
==>
Total Wage = 1'000'000
Objective worth = 100'000

WageScale = 0.9
ObjectivePercent = 0.2
==>
Total Wage = 900'000
Objective worth = 180'000

Advantage can take 4 values :
0 = No advantage
1 = Free Equipment
2 = Plane Discount
3 = Hotel Discount

Taxes rate = Sponsor yearly wage / TaxesDiv ; and it's bounded to [10%; 30%], with a 5% step
You cannot set a custom tax rate depending of the sponsor.

The Money System is stable through all the years of the game, there's no inflation... ;)
