The Capitalist Game FAQ

Postby Kit on Tue Jun 09, 2009 4:19 am

I'll update this post as common questions arise.

Questions:

1) Why Can't I Trade Stocks?


Answers:

1) Why Can't I Trade Stocks

You cannot trade stocks until you have some personal funds to invest. Once your company reaches a Net Asset Value of $250 Million dollars it will be reset and you will unlock the Player menu. This time you will receive $1,000/month in salary that you can use to purchase shares in your own company or other companies.

This FAQ needs to be updated to show that you no longer receive $1,000,000 but $1,000 a month for every month you run the company as one with player status.

I noticed that under a contract price the word "Auto" . What is this for and how does it affect pricing. I can't seem to find an answer to this in the forums or game manual. Thanks

these auto-priced contracts were an attempt to make the whole contract system more attractive. (and a good one too)

basically auto means that the price of the goods changes automatically with the real market prices.

if u click on a product youll see the base price, the market sell and the market buy prices. now click on the "market" in the "market price" text.

youll see a list of all products, search the one u wanted to know about and look at the fourth (4th) value. this is the one the "auto" contracts use.


so with auto contracts youll

buyer side: never pay too much (and always less than buying at the market), but during a boom youll pay more than during a panic.

seller side: always make more money than selling to the market, but during a panic your that still might not be enough to make a profit (theoretically).

Once you unlock the player menu by getting your first company to 250 million in net worth you can see the stock market. From there you can view a page for each company to see who the investors are.

Until you unlock the player menu the stock market, and other players invested in your company, don't really matter to you.

why does the stock split at 20 though my stock hasnt gone under 12 yet and the ceiling is 20 doesn't give much room that part just doesn't seem realistic to me being that Apple is trading at +300
