In order to increase competitiveness in the Raw Materials market starting day Day 3,576 the Raw Materials production will be denominated by a factor of 100.
For these changes to come into effect, a scheduled maintenance will be performed during day Day 3,576 starting 01:00 eRepublik time.
During this maintenance, the game will not be available, all Raw Materials offers on the Marketplace will be canceled and products return to inventories and the amounts in citizen inventories will be denominated. After the update the new amounts will be available to sell.
Example: 100234 Raw Materials units will become 1002.34 units and will occupy 100200 inventory slots.
Before denomination, one would sell 100234 Raw Materials units at 0.04 Currency per unit.
After denomination an equivalent offer would be: sell 1002 Raw Materials units at 4.00 Currency per unit. The 0.34 fraction will remain in the inventory.
New production values for Raw Materials will thus become:
Example: At Base Production, a Grain Farm will produce 0.35 Food Raw Materials every day, taking 3 days to create one unit of denominated Food Raw Materials. Partial production will be stored and shown in inventory.
Finished goods Factories’ (Weapons, Food, Houses and Aircraft Weapons) Raw Materials production requirements have also been denominated. These values represent Base Production for 0% productivity bonuses.
Please note that in order to maintain inventory space balance, 1 unit of denominated Raw Materials will take up 100 inventory slots. Also, in order to avoid erroneous offers on the Marketplace, a temporary protection valid until the end of September will disallow selling Raw Materials at a price below 1 Currency.
