I found a 100-flat skyscraper on the market some time ago. After some quick research (which for me is basically an impulse purchase), I bought it.
I later discovered that the skyscraper is accumulating debt. I'll give it a month to see if it improves or not...
Now, by my calculations, this should have removed the current government from control and made the planet 'Controller By: None'.
However, this did not happen. I don't know if this is a bug or if I missed something.
Here's what I see:
Planet: Roche II
Approx. Flats needs for this population: 100-101 (tax rate must have been changed at some point for it not to be perfect)
I own 100 flats, thus I own more than 50% of the flats on the planet and that should make the planet controller = none.
Ok. Giving it to my group has made the change happen.
“- Year 7 Day 157 ::Today marked the ascendency of Renegade Inc into Roche II politics, as they managed to secure their own candidate's legitimacy was respected by the planet's previous ruling powers long tied to The 12 Colonies.”
Could it be that it isn't taking player-owned facilities into account? I mean, if there is 101 flats on Roche II, and I own 100, but 12 Colonies owns 1, it sees that a group owns 1 out of 1 instead of 1 out of 101?
