I was under the impression that the amount of taxes earned by a tax planet is only a symbolic amount. In other words, that the taxes are only an accounting notation that the controlling government does not actually collect.
The actual amount listed for "Tax income" is what you get. The "Planet income" is just a meaningless amount, though. (yes, it's what tax income is based on, but it doesn't serve any purpose beyond being part of the tax equation)
My question is where these billions of credits go from larger government factions. Besides paying its members. They all ready own at least a few subordinate production factions so they can get there production free or seriously reduced.
Still gotta pay for Darkness costs, such as for mining, producing things, building. Not as expensive as buying them, but still adds up. Then there is buying DC usages from other factions, especially for the rarer stuff etc.
[quote]DCs I can definitley understand that. Darkness, I can see adding up but not millions of creds. I guess the leftovers are then saved for next months expenses if i am correct.[quote]
I would say to any "large" gov spends atleast a few hundred million credits each month on RMs alone, that is credits going to darkness. They ofcourse make more then that and as said what is left is probarbly stockpiled for a rainy day.
I was going over the information on facility income, and all the equations make it rather hard for me to understand, I am horrible with such things. Is there an easier way to determine how much a facility makes?
