Q. Is there a storage capacity in Idle-Corp?Edit

A. No, you can store as many assets as you can build or buy.

Q. Can I give money to my friends?Edit

A. The bot does not have a command to give money, but the player market can be used if both players have a logistics center. This is done by selling (an) asset(s) to the player that's giving the money.

Advanced woodworking is usually used as a "trading token" due to a lack of interest on market. This makes it easier to trade without accidently selling to/buying from the wrong person.

Q. What is regional legislator, and how do I become one in my server?Edit

A. A regional legislator is an elected official, who has the ability to change policies in the region for a week. This has a few steps.

First check $$r, if a region office built (it costs 100m). Use $$ds region office 100m to fully fund it.

Now you can join the ballot. To join ballot use $$joinballot. It costs 10m to join. Vote for yourself using $$voteballot @YourName.

If you get an error while voting, you probably need voters boon. Use $$vote and vote for the bot to get it. Then try and vote again.

Now you need to wait for the election to end. Use $$ballot to see when it ends. Once the ballot closes and you get elected, you can change the policies.

Tip: A tie in votes will cause no one to win.
