Archives » Link between Governor and tax/FI earnings?
Dan Hakim

The last FI run saw a massive drop in earnings for everyone on Lorrd but we can't find any reason for it. There have been no new buildings or changes in operator status yet facilities owned by ourselves and other groups on the planet have dropped from an average of just over 50k to just over 10k. The only change is that the governor has been inactive for a couple of weeks but I've never heard of this having any impact on FI earnings before (although I could understand if it impacted tax income).

Is this something that needs a bug report or has there been a change in FI from the admin side?

Governor has no effect on FI. Only a magistrate has an effect, and even then only on tax income.

Could it be that your operators changed or went inactive, or that previous closed to crewlist facilities were made open to all, bringing the number of facilities above the MNSF values and so cause income for all those facilities to drop?

That's why we're confused, the effect has been across the board, facilities with different operators have been affected the same way but nobody has changed anything with the exception of an inactive governor.

I can confirm that it was only on the planet Lorrd that my hotels have been affected.

My issues are with hotels only.

Not all my cities were affected.
I've checked every detail and there is no difference between a city that earned the right FI and one that didn't as far as operators , managers , commisioners or administrators.

I use the same operator/manager combos on my other facilities on other planets and they haven't been affected.

No change to crewlist was made.

I'm independent of Dans faction so it seems it's a problem across the board and not just faction related.

The stats for Lorrd are very good so it's not that.

Is the MNSF correct on the planet for the hotels?


Darian Dash

Mnsf?
Not sure what that is sorry

Relevant rules link

Too many of any given facility type per city will lower the income that facility type receives. The specific number is a hidden value but if your income begins to drop after more hotels are opened for income, you likely have too many hotels.

Hence why I asked earlier if previous existing facilities that had been closed to crewlist had been made open to all.

I only have 4 hotels in each of the affected cities.
4 each of the HOTs in each city usually.

I had previously been under the impression that MNSF is planet-wide, but the rules do clearly specify it is only city-wide. That's the only discrepancy that comes to mind immediately that may or may not explain your situation, though, in which case the rules ought to be corrected.

MNSF is planet-wide, despite what the rules say. It roughly equates to 4 per city, but hypothetically you could have a 5x5 planet, with 100 Hotels in a single city, and the MNSF would be sustained.

Syn, I believe it is planet-wide, but it is based on the number of cities, which could be what the rules are pertaining to - you can have a max of 4 hotels per city, but not necessarily all in the same city on the planet.

I'll see what happens with this months FI ad post the results.

I'd have thought that the hotels in my other cities would have the same problem if it was a planet wide thing but they don't.

Every hotel i own on the planet only made 14k each while the offices and taverns all made 40k each.

Active operator
manager assigned
open to all

None of my other facilities on Lorrd or other planets were affected.

Yep, sounds like there are too many hotels built on the planet then.

I concur with Jay. I'd suggest looking around the planet and contacting other owners and see how many hotels there are on the planet.

In what way does Magistrate effect FI? I assume higher FI but which skill is most desirable? Management?

Edit: Nevermind I found the answer myself. Magistrates earn and extra 1% taxable income for their planet for each level of Management skill.
