Change the entry in Facilities from

Each Corporation also has a Production value, calculated from other parts of the gamestate. A Corporation may, at any time, set its Production value to the square of the number of Factories it controls.

Each Corporation also has a Production value, calculated from other parts of the gamestate. A Corporation may, at any time, set its Production value to the square of the number of Factories it controls(i.e the number of factories multiplied by the number of factories equals the production).

An e.g. would be better than an i.e., I think.

Do we need to define addition next? <_<. Or what about people who do not have an 8th grade level of English and thus do not understand some larger words? Do we need to define every word over eight letters in length?

This is supposed to be an intelligent game for intelligent people. People who are at least smart enough to, if they do not know a term, google it. If we start defining everything just because someone isn’t “blah savvy” the rule set will get needlessly complicated.

I can under stand mentioning how to calculate say, Standard Deviation in the rule set, but defining square? You don’t need to be “Math Savvy” to know how to calculate the square of a number. You just need to have taken basic highschool mathematics.

I don’t think it’s necessary, but it can’t hurt.

It just seemed unclear enough that in this case it seemed to be a decent idea.

A better idea is being voted on for this same issue.
