Advanced Modding – Manufacturing

You may modify the manufacturing processes in Capitalism Lab by editing the following file.

Manufacturing.DBF

This file defines the manufacturing processes which are displayed in the game by the Manufacturer’s Guide.

Field Type Length / Range Description
CLASS Character 8 chars The code of the product class.
OUTPUT Character 8 chars The item code of the finished product.
OQTY Numeric 1 to 9999 The output quantity of the finished product.
INPUT1 Character 8 chars A product can be manufactured using 1 to 3 input items.

This is the item code of the input item #1.

IQTY1 Numeric 1 to 9999 The input quantity of the input item #1.

(See the Manfacturer’s Guide for what this means.)

IQUA1 Numeric 1 to 99 The percentage of quality contributed by the input item #1.

(See the Manfacturer’s Guide int he game for what this means.)

INPUT2 Character 8 chars  

This is the item code of the input item #2. (optional)

IQTY2 Numeric 1 to 9999 The input quantity of the input item #2. (optional)
IQUA2 Numeric 1 to 99 The percentage of quality contributed by the input item #2. (optional)
INPUT3 Character 8 chars  

This is the item code of the input item #3. (optional)

IQTY3 Numeric 1 to 9999 The input quantity of the input item #3. (optional)
IQUA3 Numeric 1 to 99 The percentage of quality contributed by the input item #3. (optional)
PROD_SPEED Numeric 100 to 1000 The production speed. The standard value is 100.

E.g. A value of 150 means that the production speed is 150% of the normal production speed.

A value of 70 means that the production speed is 70% of the normal production speed.

NOTE:

The sum of the qualities of all the input items of a product must be lower than 100. (i.e. IQUA1 + IQUA2 + IQUA3 must be lower than 100). Aside from input items, technology also contributes to the quality of the finished product. And the amount that technology contributes equals to 100 less the sum of input item qualities.

For numeric variables, if you enter a value that is outside the Range listed above, the game will automatically correct it when it loads the DBF files.
