What Are Project Accounts?

Postby SCC on Mon 12 Aug 2019 04:07

So I'm trying to figure out how NPR's spend money and one term that's causing me trouble is Project Accounts, it's mentioned three times on page 208 in Y7.02 but never really defined. Best I can figure out it's for really big projects that can't be paid for in a single turn, but the wording is some weird, like the bit about saving the funds in IU, kind of suggests that these are truly massive projects, like the pyramids, and not simply a ship that costs a lot.

As a side note how should I determine how many Qt an empire will build/station on a planet?

Y2.02.2.1 defines Project accounts. Basically if the NPR does not have enough MCr to pay for an R&D prject then it will save and earmark that saved MCr to start the project as soon as it has enough MCr set aside to do so.

There is no standard for Qt. For reference, when invaded every PU on the world releases 1 Qtr...

(Another older post, but ...)

Myself, when starting up NPRs, I'll use a percentage of the population - specifically the DEF fund percentage - as the number of Qt they start with. For LEL races (without ships) I'll combine WAR and DEF since they won't be spending on ships/stations and Qt are their only units.

Yeah, I'm finally back (again)! Sometimes, life (and 13yo son's) don't leave you time to play SF and earn a paycheck. :/

No, really! Matt actually made me an admin here!
