Can we get a fix for these numbers to complement the research upgrade?
Perhaps a cumulative cost of making the patent and a daily income number. Or somehow a reflection of total income for the patent, I'm not sure how feasible that would be.

At any rate, whatever numbers are currently being represented makes no sense to me unless the revenue number is in fact all time cumulative. If so, the addition of cost to make that patent would be awesome. :smile:

I believe we've started moving in that direction but didn't complete yet.

My intent is for accounting to accrue while researching, then expense as decayed after publishing. Aside from that accounting there should also be a display number showing the total cost at the time of publishing and the total revenue to date from licensing.

I'm not sure exactly which pieces are or are not in place yet, but it's coming.

OK I just went to see if we could move forward on this and realized we missed a step. Research has been expensing as performed when I thought it was accruing. So we just now started started the accrual process.

That means it will need a few weeks at minimum before that value adds up enough to be meaningful. When it is I will revisit.

I suspect what I am seeing is related to this topic-

In financial statements I show license revenue but no longer any research expense. Is this an error or does license revenue reflect net gain/loss for the day and the research expense line is irrelevant?

If you're getting license revenue you should have expenses too. I'll look into it.

Yeah I don't see a problem. Your last statement has :beta: 608m in licenses and :beta: 37m in expense. If you have detailed info you'd like me to look at further you can just put a ticket in game. :)

That's part of the problem I am seeing. In joker20008 37m doesn't cover the operating cost of one research facility let alone all of them. Will send ticket when I get a chance. Thanks :smile:

You're not expensed on the operating cost of R&D. That all goes into the value of the research. You're expensed on the value of published research that decayed.

Eventually they'll be comparable, since going in must equal coming out. But the reason it's low now is perhaps these patents are older than a month? If so, the older system expensed up front and therefore didn't accrue as much value.

That said, I'll take a look tomorrow to ensure it's correct. (Unless Committed gets a chance to look sooner.)

While currently difficult to back trace and prove that makes sense Amarsir. I am working off a lot of old patents and a few new ones. Thank you.
