Pork Barrel

Do you like playing with money?

Do you find the “no-cost” mod just takes all the fun out of getting rich or worse, you hate going bankrupt?

What you need my friend is your very own lobbyist so you to can get some good old fashion “Pork” !

Thats right, why let some fat cat banker get rich off you when you can play like the real transport companies and let the tax payers pay for your new train station or airport.

Every country has it, in the US it’s called Pork or Pork Barrel spending
In the UK it’s called “Tax Sweetener”
The Germans call it “Wahlgeschenke” What? is that a real word?
In Greece they call it ... well I think the Greeks just call it German money

All you have to do my friend is place one of these cute little “Pork Barrels” anywhere on your map and the tax payers give you money!

It matters not if your playing with a Mark, a Yen, a Buck, or a Pound this mod will give you half a million more!

Half a million not enough?

Drop two “Pork Barrels”. Still not enough, drop three, or six, why are you asking me how many barrels you can plop down, I don't care, it’s your game. Just remember to turn off “No Cost Mode”, these lobbyist don't like working in an anticapitalist, socialist inspired corrupt world that uses a “No Cost Mode”

So what are you waiting for, hit that green button and subscribe now, you know you want to, who would walk away from free money?

Subscribe, do it now !

Easy to change the amount it gives. With a good text editor, edit pork_barrel.mdl found in
....SteamApps\workshop\content\446800\858004748\res\models\model\asset\ and change the cost, it's obviously a minus figure. tip: when you place the barrel, you can safely delete it.

wow - this has the potential to actually *save* this shamble and introduce some game dynamics!

If you could possibly base the output on the population/wealth of the proximate towns/cities - and maybe also factor in inflation (if that is a factor in the game at all - never bothered/managed to play for very long)..

Really miss the quite obvious features of grants and subsidies - this could be a nice save.

My edit went great. I have much more money now :D

I just changed it, because some other mod`s (don`t ask me why...) are not compatiable with the no cost... So i need money to build my stuff ^^

Thank you for the kind words lemansgranprix and the others, I'm glad you enjoy the mod, I also use it for that little cash boost starting a new map.

KnockbackKing, I was going to write up and tell you how to edit the mod.lua file, but it looks like you already found it. By now your most likley laughing at the way I did this, but it works.

Let me know how your edit went.

Is it possible to change the number off the money that this asset "produce"?
500k is a little bit to small for me... I want to change it to 5M ._.

I have to say thank you for this mod.

I Enjoy playing the game on medium difficulty for my finances but have started enough maps to know I don't want to sit there and wait for the beginning to build up, to have an empire again.

This mod also allows me to build quickly and efficiently, and yet, I still need to ensure that I'm running things efficiently. Also, it allows me to build cool looking rail lines without the restriction of finances (more bridges and tunnels early on).

This is simply excellent.
