I have been playing SRCW for some time now and I like it. Many reviewers praise or critizise it for its acclaimed complexity.
There sure are a lot of factors in the whole "game equation" but what are they good for when you dont know what they are good for.
I tried to get some information on what some of the sliders actually do on the wiki but to be honest, its of no use. Many pages are empty and most explanations are no explanations at all.
For example: World market opinion. It says it is influenced by some other factors, you could guess, but it doesnt say what the effects of a good/bad WMO are.
Same goes for social spending, it basically says they improve domestic approval, immigration/emmigration births/deaths. Well, really? Infrastructure improves supply, I believe to remember, though, that in SR2020 it lowered production cost? Has that changed? What are the different effects of the various tax classes? Whats tourism exactly do?
There is an effect of education rating on research efficiency, I guessed that, but how much? Is it better to spend 10m/day on education or directly on research eff.?
Whats frustrating is that you can intuitively figure out what effects what, but to make an adjustment it is crucial to know how big of an effect there is.
Like, Im not pumping 100m into ecology to have a 1% increase in tourism that yields me 5m income (what does tourism do again?). Would be nice to know and see the connections.
What does funding a foreign party do? The opposition? Insurgents?
I could go on for hours, I just would like to know if there are some detailed written explanations? I know there are some videos, but then I need figures and numbers, after all that is a grand strategy game and as all these options are in the game they must have an effect and that can be explained in detail.
