Scene tag

Deep in the basement of Ankh Morpork's main bank is a contraption so large and accurate that it can controll the economy itself. It's pipes range from giant glass monsters to the most humble of tubes but despite the best efforts, it always seems to leak (much like the real economy). It's name, the glooper.

My vertion isn't an exact replica due to me not having an igor (unfortunate <_< ) but it does have some of the magic of the glooper in the form of a tipping bucket which i am very proud of. The intructions for the valves and other devices are in the scene and please read them before tring to manage the economy but if you think you should intervene then just think, what would Adam Smith do?

If you think it is running slowly then check the inflationometer.:lol:

Making Money by Terry Pratchett, right?
its very interesting (referring to your scene)
a bit boring but very well made:) 6/10 (i hope that rating wasnt too bad. :|
this is 10/10 original and amazing!
Oh that's why we have crisis - it's leaking! :+
And I suppose the economy doesn't lose money?
As Moist Von Lipvig says about the glooper: 'Everyone knows that at the end of the week you never have quite as much money as you think you should. It's a well known fact!'
The leaks are specialy designated leaks to make the simulation accurate to the glooper from 'Making Money'.:lol:
hahaha very very very VERY 0r1g1n@I:tup:
LOL GOOD 10/10:lol:
is this an update? because i saw a different version that was just like this, bu not as much stuff. and i thought that version worked better
AWESOME very nice work 10/10 _o_ _o_ :tup: :tup: ^^
wow very interresting
:D
ow i have no idea how it works:D but is is way to cool! 10/10
:| :/
very well done. this is definitely one of my favorites, as the gears and pipes are almost flawless. suprisingly, There's not a lot of lag for the amount of water.:) :) 10/10!
There is actually more lagg than you think but the gears go so fast you don't notice too much. Also I made the pipes as thin as possible (like the pipes as thin as needles in Terry Pratchets Making Money), so much so that water often leaks out which is why there are so many invisible walls.
I enjoy creating economic suicide:tup:

(never make me president)
pls don't use num pad keys cos' for those with the lap top will rather can't control i'm using 1 so i flunkied...:bonk: )|( <_<

I don't think foreign banking should be absolutely FLOODING the bank with money, not to mention it's laggy. Your first version was excellent and this one seems nice too, but it's too laggy for me.
Nice!
