In today's world the importance of play, licenses, about specific artifacts (pop) culture. Possession of license allows you to create movies that are based on the idea.
At the time of manufacture your own video player automatically is licensed to it. With it can create sequels of the movie. However, the license owner may decide to sell/license purchased from other players. Thanks to the new owner will receive the ability to create various types of continuation of the film whose license purchased. Of course, the manufacturer, which sold the license no longer has the ability to create sequels of the movie (unless you buy again to the right).
Players can expose your licenses for sale (film shall be specially marked in the list of videos). The other player (this can be both a man and the computer) can buy the rights to the film.
NOTE: the computer players can bid for the purchase of a license to our film, that is not marked for SALE.
Players controlled by people also may submit a proposal for the computer players for movies not marked for SALE but not always the computer player will want to sell us their best production (and vice-versa will not want to buy from us the right to each of our "gniota").
The price of a license is subject to the estimated profits from the production. It is important so the moment of its purchase. Licenses are purchased for a specific film (not the series). In this connection, the video needs to be already completed (you can buy a license after the premiere of the film).
Taking into account the fact that the algorithms of profits generated by the videos include other productions of players you can assume that if a player makes good movies his next movie will be good so they affect positively on the profits of his previous film. What will result in the fact that this film will make more profits ... Consequently, rates its license will also be increased. Especially well this should be visible at the time the gain by the film awards or nominations for a Festival. On the other hand too early purchase license may be wtopą, because the original movie may not return, and the wisdom of doing his sequel can stand under a large question mark.
Buying a license does not affect the profits of the original film, which license is acquired (in the sense that all the profits from the movie are going to its original manufacturer). I.e. If we bought the rights to the film Avengers 3 all profits from it still goes to its original manufacturer. We can however, create Avengers 4from which we have received in its entirety.
Remarks and comments
Here are some interesting situations that may occur in the game.
Computer player creates a scenario for the continuation of your video. Unfortunately not the end of it he went out (or he lacks the cash), so he decided to sell it on the open market. Scenario one buys the other player. And at this time can create a film based on it. What more can also create sequels of this film (because the law applies to movies, and not scenarios). So it looks like that the computer player "friko" got rid of not only the scenario but also the rights to the film (he no longer will be able to create sequels, because another player will have a scenario sequels). The solution to this particular case could be selling scenarios sequels for a higher price (such as license for the movie). However, on the other hand, this is an interesting scent, which allows observant players hunt for such occasions!
Another interesting case we have to deal with, when a player (this time a man) will create a scenario but finds that it did not go well enough (level scenario is low). It cannot be also improve (amendments do not bring the result) looks so that the player is in a fix. Cannot throw away such a scenario to the Recycle Bin and create new (there is no such option-it would be too easy in terms of game mechanics, not expensive for the player). Therefore, in this situation, has two choices: do the sequel, which is problematic (as is often practiced in reality) or sell the unsuccessful scenario.
Selling it will expose, however, that any of the other players will buy it ... and in such a way will take over rights to the film for a song. On the other hand the scenarios periodically disappear from the market scenarios (simply forget about them-mechanic introduced to have rotation scenarios). Thus a player can expect that such a scenario will disappear for a while (if no one will buy), and thus will be able to create a new continuation of his original hits this time paying more to work on the script:). Risky but interesting isn't it?
Perhaps you ask why in that case enter licenses since similar mechanism could be obtained through trade scenarios? First, the licenses do not require creating scenario (and even at the time of the creation of a scenario option trade license of the video is not possible). Thanks to this computer can hunt for bargains at the players (if you did not create a scenario of a sequel that is, that it is not interested in continuing a series, perhaps believing it enough perspective). On the other, this is another form of getting cash (or rescue the player when it is in trouble). And opportunities for further interesting "flavors".
An example of such a "spice" is a new event that may occur in the course of the game. Is it "leaking scenario". Well, the scenario of any player may suddenly "leak" or to hit the market scenarios. So really this will be his make a copy (if this is the scenario of a sequel that will have the same default cast). Each so will be able to buy it and create on the basis of the film ... and then its continuation. In this case, however, the player who originally owned this scenario and has licensed the series still this license will have or will be able to create the continuation of this movie. Here we have to deal with the situation, when the "leaked" begins a life of its own, independent life. In the game it will look like this.
- Player A has a scenario: Deadpool.
- This scenario is leaking: Deadpool (Leaked)
- Player B buys such a scenario and doing on the basis of the film.
- Player and still could do a continuation of his original film: Deadpool 2
- Then player B begins its series of independent Deadpool (leak) 2 -that is, in short, does a fake original:).
