For anyone reading these forums for information about how the game works, please be aware that not everything you read here is accurate. Sometimes information is spread that is incomplete, misleading, or completely false. Usually, it is inaccurate guesswork that is presented as fact.
But just be aware that you can't take everything in these
forums as fact.
While most users are trying to be helpful, some either do not truly know the answers to questions regarding the sim or are unfortunately intentionally misleading other users. Information posted on these forums by members of sitestaff should be considered fact and presents the best, first-hand representation of the simulation engine. As we are not always able to respond to every post in every thread on these boards, please take what you read in the forums from other users as opinion.
If anyone has specific questions about how the game works, please search the Knowledge Base
first, and if you can't find an answer there, submit a support ticket. We're happy to answer your questions.
We're also compiling a high level explanation of how the SimEngine works, which will soon be added to the Knowledge Base.
