Round 4 :
Purple (DeMat') uses a Stockport card to build the canal link between Colne and Yorkshire. For his second action, he uses a Burnley card to build a Tech Level 2 Cotton Mill on the 1st industry space in Burnley, taking coal from the Demand Track for ?1.

Studying the game log, it would appear that what happened is this: at the start of round 6 you had ?1 in cash and had to pay ?3 interest, as you were on income space 7. Since this left you with -?2, the game rules require you to sell a tile in order to clear your debt.

You had two tiles on the board (a tech 1 Cotton Mill and a tech 2 Cotton Mill), either of which you should have been able to choose to sell. When a situation like this arises (any player in debt after his income has been received at the start of the turn), the program attempts to determine whether any of the indebted player's tiles must be sold, that is, whether for each individual tile it is impossible for the player to clear his debts without selling that particular tile. If this is the case then that tile is sold automatically, to save time. What seems to have happened here is that the program mistakenly decided that you would be forced to sell your Tech 2 Cotton Mill. This indicates that there is a bug in that part of the program, which I will try to fix.

In accordance with the rules of the game, you would have been forced to sell one of your two Cotton Mills. However, you should have been given a choice of which Cotton Mill to sell, and you weren't given that choice. If you would prefer to still have your tech 2 Cotton Mill rather than the tech 1 one, I will edit the game to correct the error. Let me know.

Curiously, you also seem to have been reimbursed with ?1 more than you should have had when the tile was sold. I will not correct this, but it seems to indicate another bug to fix.

The bugs should hopefully be fixed now.

Let me know about your decision on which tile to sell
