This modification impacts leasing vehicles and equipment.
(1) Mod allows for adjustments to any of the three cost factors (Base Costs, Per Operating Hour, or Per Day) that make up total leasing cost, within the mod’s lua file. These are in the form of percentages of the respective vehicle’s underlying cost.
(2) Mod shows (in the F1 help menu) the player how much time remains until the next hourly lease charge. Want to know how much time is left so as to time your run back to the store? Just turn on the F1 menu and you’ll see how much time you have.
(3) Mod charges the player for any leased vehicle returned to the store that requires fuel. It is assumed that vehicles must be returned with a full fuel tank. A message indicating the cost of the fuel will appear upon return.
(4) Mod compensates the player (at a discounted rate) for any leased/owned vehicle that is returned/sold at the store that contains product inside (ie, such as grain, wood chips, seeds, etc.). The compensation amount will be at a discounted rate to account for the hassle factor’ to the store of having to dispose of the product. The discount rate can be adjusted if the player wishes in the mod’s lua file.
