A mod to Repair the game economy of Victoria II
ViconomicNGTR (NoGoldTaxRefund) edited for Vanilla by SteamFax
Code from NGTR-HPMpatch by Bearhobag of Reddit
Originally presented as an economic improvement patch for Victoria 2 HPM (Historical Project Mod) by Bearhobag but adapted for Vanilla.
Files are altered from HMP to NGTR and HMP content removed for Vanilla.
What this does:
Addresses Victoria's late game economic liquidity problem for Vanilla.
As per results of Bearhobag of Reddit's empirical studies of saved Victoria 2 games:
"a major problem with Victoria 2 is that above 90% of the total money pool ends up trapped in national treasuries"
"Money doesn't reach the general population. Without money, they can't buy goods. Without demand for goods, factories can't make a profit. Without profitable factories, industrialization can't put money into people's pockets. Instead of roaring into Fordism, Victoria 2's Industrial Revolution tends to fizzle and fail."
"I'm not saying this fixes the game, it's just what I've decided is "good enough".
These areas are addressed for Vanilla by this mod:
1--Governments don't hoard money in their treasury anymore , instead they lower taxes and even return money back to their POPs if treasury amounts exceed £400,000.
2--Factories pay out 60% of their profits to employees/managers, as opposed to 30%.
3--Gold income mainly goes to governments instead of laborers which allows for greater circulation.
Mod can be adapted for other mods, including those that already have a national treasury limiter such as Money Hoarder, instructions in Readme
