In rule Inventions, replace

An Invention itself also has a Power Requirement, equal to the total Power Requirements of its Parts, plus the square of the number of Parts it has, plus five times the number of different Resources involved in its Composition.

An Invention itself also has a Power Requirement, equal to the total Power Requirements of its Parts.

As it is now, producing a relatively simple invention with two or three parts that requires several different resources will send your income into the negative straight away.

imperial Invention costs are too high at the moment, although I’m not sure if this would make them too low.

for It seemed a bit too high.

against Square of the parts is a bit steep for bigger items, but five times the Resource types seems like it’ll make the Invention process interesting. Invention should involve some compromise.

against The whole is more than the sum of its parts.

against What we really need is a sensible overhaul of Power Requirements and Compositions.

Sorry, I still thought Kevan was in charge. against, as I’d prefer just 5xresources.

against I think they are to expensive now, but I dont want anyone to invent now. In a week or so, we could make this cheaper… (but I also prefer just 5xres)
