Current benefits is level 2, meaning it costs $2m. 10x cost changes that to $20m, an $18m difference. Current budget is $4.2b. The last few turns, finding things to spend money on has been harder than having enough, and our budget last turn was $2.6b. The increased costs aren't completely negligible, but they're not really significant either.Not sure our income can handle that level of benefits increase even if we have a decent pile of reserve cash.
Issue with getting that isn't money (well, not the primary issue at least), but the lack of research slots. Grifftiger power armor is something we get more for "fun" than because we get something highly valuable, and we've had really important things to research. Haven't spent much time pre-planning lately, so not sure how open research will be for "fun" projects as opposed to "needed" ones.Like the Grifftiger battle armor.
Not a problem, watching the budget tends to be my job.Changing my vote, didn’t check the budget sheet recently, just based it on the reserves we had over the past few turns.
Between the NRR and the Dracs, I am expecting a double mass humanitarian crisis/ guerrilla wars to drain all the treasure from our empire.The fact that we now have 2b in the bank makes me laugh since we are apparently now at the point where money is no longer an issue.
Am I tempting fate, YES! Yes I am.
