Upgrade Bug Warning:
Upgrades are not credited properly unless the order follows a left to right rule. Skipping an upgrade may result in a previous upgrade to no longer be credited, when you activate the skipped one at a later date/time. True of T3+AP and sure it was the same without AP, hope this makes sense.


In-Game Text


"Some misinformed media people tried to accuse El Presidente that he's stacking up weapons and getting ready for war. Nothing can be more far from the truth. This is our pipe factory - our pipes are so good that if you are to put a cylindrical object in them and use gunpowder to cause an explosion, the object will accelerate to great speed."


"The Weapons factory produces Guns from Iron and worsens the foreign relations while doing so."
