That's a heavy truck with it's trailers and you're saying it's not at least as big as 4 cars? :hand:

If anything it should need even more steel.

OR another Category of Entertainment.
Which will have

iPods.... Those are produced by Apple and if on the HQ:

The company shown here is a fictitious business in the economic simulation game Simunomics. None of the items described here have any physical represtation.

Then shouldn't the products be the same? Because as far as I know, Apple is the only corporation that produces iPods.

Product: Cacao

Category: Industrial

Inputs: None

Used to produce cacao powdrer together with sugar so ppl can make cacao milk at home.
Used to produce Candy bars, together with sugar and electricity and plastic
Used to produce Chocolat bars together with sugar and paper
Used in Diet shakes together with water sugar (low % though) and fruits

Could all 4 be a new Categorie, like fastfood, just diet shakes would not go in that.

Why those inputs: Think it would be nice to buy chocolat in here, like i eat at home a lot.

true, but overal it should be like 0.5-1 per unit as it's not a major ingredient, but is an important part of the finished product.

As u can see i didnt include how much would be needed, so indeed 0.5 or something like that shoulddo the trick :cool:

And all-in-all its just a sugestion here.

They seem hit-and-miss about using containers for products, so I wouldn't stress over it too much either way. :cool:

Basically we use packaging if we think the product needs something else to be interesting, or if it's inconceivable to sell the product without it. We also consider whether that input is already used a lot, or if it only goes into a couple things.

Feel free to make your suggestion with or without, whatever seems most natural to you.

And although you can comment on or discuss other people's suggestions, let's try to keep this thread very close to topic.
