Proposal: Part recall

Timed out and failed, 1-4. Josh

Repeal the rule Repair Wrench.

As I’ve commented in the other proposal, this honestly seems like a redundant rule. You can replace parts relatively cheaply, and you can repair parts via Income. We don’t really need a third form of repairs.

That sounds like a rich person’s perspective to me!

Repair wrench is there so that an Operator with no money, no parts to sell and an Engine at 0% can still re-enter the game without having to propose charity for themselves or wait a week for income. I’d rather have it on the books for the edge-case where it’s needed than lose it and only have a ruleset where everything requires money.

Using repair wrench to repair an engine costs more than just replacing the engine normally though? It explicitly costs a chunk of money to use.

Are you mixing it up with “Income” which lets you repair everything for 5% for free?

Admittedly it would be cheaper if Maldor’s passes, but my preference would be for income to be strengthened rather than repair wrench - it’s a simpler rule that takes less maths.

Ah, yes, I am.

Mmm, CoV.  against until income actually does get strengthened—this still offers players with five-digit Money a significant advantage over those of us who have invested in our Spare Parts Bin.

I’m clearly not familiar with where the ruleset allows for repairs other than the repair wrench rule… imperial

against Whoops, that was a pure mistake. I like the simplicity, honestly
