    Good morning...
    Gosh so much talk over cc or cheese. I say make what you can..sometimes you have to make cheese because your paper mill is making something else...i have to make starch and orange juice for my timed daily contests. So will make packaging in between.
    I need bananas for those milkshakes and I used all mine on cookies yesterday...lol..but such yummy cookies they are.
    I like the idea of trading items but not sure GI has the know how to to that..they can't fix what is wrong now in the game..we don't want to confuse them more..
    I also keep my mine, oil refinery, and chemical plant running as much as possible. No need to produce extra products and you get at least 1,000 for first level production for every 10/15 min production time. Just set and collect.
    Off to make my million today then will do a bunch of upgrades tonight I hope.
    Have fun

    Hehe, the moment you believe you are about to pull ahead I will add more achievements and you will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That is my evil plan anyway.

    Having thread and three fish today. I got paper and cotton in WH and fish is on the menu regardless. Short one was diamond dust. I got it a few days ago too and it won me a gold coin.
    Not doing milkshakes. Yesterday my short assignment was 6 milkshakes. Ignored.

    Well my bell, not as many as you. You rank right there with the infamous mockba. I have 216. As for milkshakes I have 5

    Only in acheivements, only in acheivements.

    What can I say I spent nearly 2 hours commuting on trains 5 days a week, got to do something. Thats usually when i work on acheivements.

    I have a number of things i think i need for the game though like a 4th warehouse, but that costs 1.5mil or rather 1.35mil as i have a 10% discount thing i am waiting to use on that, and im currently finding it hard to save up for that... i keep purchasing land and new buildings... ah well.

    I've so far got 4 gold coins from the daily quests, but tbh i have no idea what makes you win one, as sometimes i have the products ready just as i accept the quest - complete coincidence, and i get a silver...

Your cheese production cost is estimated neither by selling price of your basic ingredients (420) nor your potential gains from selling basic ingredients (profit from selling milk alone, which is 420 - 260).

    You spend 520+ 310 to produce one batch of cheese, not 840+310
    You sell it for 1,365. The difference is your profit.

    Cheese is not worth the effort, that much is true.

    PS it is an interesting point about trucks but hardly practical in the game world. There is a cost of your building and upgrades. Think of how much you spent on, say, food plant before you start your production. It takes a long time before you start making actual profit, lol. You need to get your millions back first.

    You are right so far - this is the profit for the entire chain. But, this is not what you dairy plant delivers. The profit you get from upgrading the milk to cheese is simply not worth it.
    You show me just one serious economist who would agree with you here. You need to look at valueadd.

    Really that long of a commute? That's awful! That's like working 10 hr days. Is this temporary, or is this the norm for you? You should fix that.

    I see why you have an iPad. I'd watch movies and shows.

    It's not about what is worth it, you were trying to tell us it was the sale price of the milk not production and you were wrong.

    And let's face it profit off 2 milk is only 320 ( off top of my head) compared to the 535 if you combine to make cheese.

    Yes it takes longer but as the saying goes "speculate to accumulate"

    Well 1 hour to work 1 hour back... but yea everyday thats the norm, unless the put me in the other office which is further away but when that happens I crash at my brothers.

    As for fixing that, I'm working on it. I currently live at home with the parents so I only pay for food and contribute to the bills etc, so my "rent" here is much much lower than I could possibly get it anywhere else in London.

    I'm saving like crazy, i try to save about 1/3 to 1/2 of my salary every month, but sometimes its just not happening since I buy stuf like my ipad... I paid for my holiday last month and I might need a new PC soon since my one has had to be fixed 5 times in the last couple of months (for free by my brother) but i've had it for nearly 7 years so i think its almost time.

    Kel, the point is in the valueadd - a dairy does not add a lot of value. Try the math.
    I do this for a living.

    I apologise if the below is wrong - its been a while since i visited the subject

    If we are thinking about the real work think about the below. An proper economist wouldn't look at the profit exacted by each product without looking at the demand in the market, thats just plain stupid as you can't make as much as you want and expect it to be bought if the demand isn't there.

    Each factory has a maxium output of product A - if this maximum output is produced ona daily basis but the demand lower than output you'll have a certain amount of wastage everyday which costs the company money. HOWEVER, if your company produces product B which requries product A, it can use the excess of product A at its cost - i.e it doesn't have to go to the market to get it at a higher price - and there is no detrimental effect to the companies profit

    And who the heck has the time to sit there producing milk endlessly, especially if there are other factories which require the products of the ranch.
