Q: Is there any penalty for a negative training income?
When you’re running a shortage of raw materials like wood or stone, you’re dinged for the cost of the shortage. And I believe when you’re running a negative money income, you automatically sell resources to make up the deficit. But what happens when you’re running a deficit on something that can’t be bought with money?
I’ve got a game going where I’ve got more training going out that coming in. What little I’m producing is being sent out in trade and tribute, but I don’t even have enough to meet that demand. So I’m pegged at zero training, with a negative income of -50. It’s been this way for a couple of turn, but my trade and tribute deals are still in effect, even though I can’t pay them. And I’m not able to find any negative effect from this.
Can I just run a negative value without any side effects (other than being unable to do anything that requires spending training)? It seems like the trade and tribute deals should be canceled, but as far as I can tell, they’re going strong.
