Options contracts jumping somewhere in the ideas of the players, however, there was no justification for its implementation from the point of view of mechanics (it was hard to put them together with some other elements from the world of the game). With the advent of the sequels some began to grieve over the fact that they do not always all the developers were available when they wanted to make a follow-up to his blockbuster. At this point the option began to take the meaning I had to find a sensible way of integrating a the mechanics in the game.
And here I guess. Along with the next version there is a new option that allows you to sign the contract with the chosen developer. Contracts will be subject to the following rules.
The player with the Assistant will be able to sign a contract with any currently available the creator (an important note). The contract will be signed for a certain number of movies (1 to 5) that you will need to shoot within a specified time period (from 1 year to 10 years).
Whether the developer will want to sign a contract with the player (and for how long the contract will want to close) depends on both the prestige of player talent and popularity of the creators but also the relationship of the players with the program selected. May so happen this situation, that the creator will not want us to sign the contract, signed only on film or even to 5.
To sign the player will have to spend the entire value of the contract immediately (it is a multiple of the current fee with additional percentages – the sum so will be significant). However, from this point on, during the term of the contract, the developer will always be available to the player. The Player shall have no additional cost if you fill the creator with which it has a contract (in the production of its price will be then 0). Hence, as the popularity of the developers is growing (and with it, its price), the player will not be felt (contract has already paid for, and the creator will be available to the player for free). So this is a great investment in young, promising artists.
Do not sign a contract so on film (e.g. the sequel of our hit) but we have a general contract with the developer, which requires it to our any film (an additional advantage for the manufacturer is, the fact that the creator in the course of the contract cannot loitering on the proposed him to roles).
Termination of contract can occur for the following reasons:
- the creator has played in the specified by the contract number of the player's production
- contract expiration date has passed
- the creator has died or retired
I mentioned at the beginning that in order to sign a contract the creator must be available at any given time. This is to prevent the situation when you do not have a contract with the program concerned after an unexpected success of its movie decided to shoot its continuation but a specific creator is unavailable. In this situation, the player will not be so he could go to the signing of contracts and simply sign a contract. You must do this before.
I hope that this option is what you expected.
