It's a pity about the changed taxing system, I don't like that at all. I play easy relaxed sandbox style games and this change broke my economy.
Sorry. ... but you're statement in and of itself means that the new tax system is working precisely the way it was meant to.
Could someone do me a favor and post the changed tax system? I'd love to see SD's change. (and I don't have 1.2 installed yet)
