There is a new option called “Technology Disruption” on the new game setting menu. When it is enabled, technology disruption occurs constantly and all technology variables decrease by 10% every year. This is to simulate the effect that existing technology constantly gives way to new technology and become less valuable.
Please note that even if the Technology Disruption setting is disabled, technology disruption will still occur when a product's top technology exceeds 10,000,000 points. The purpose is to prevent the numbers from growing too large, which may affect playability.
