Proc Details

departmental_payouts

Departmental income payments are kept static and linear for every department, and paid out once every 5 minutes, as determined by MAX_GRANT_DPT. Iterates over every department account for the same payment.

get_dep_account

Handy proc for obtaining a department's bank account, given the department ID, AKA the define assigned for what department they're under.

inflation_value

Proc that returns a value meant to shift inflation values in vendors, based on how much money exists on the station.

If crew are somehow aquiring far too much money, this value will dynamically cause vendables across the station to skyrocket in price until some money is spent. Additionally, civilain bounties will cost less, and cargo goodies will increase in price as well. The goal here is that if you want to spend money, you'll have to get it, and the most efficient method is typically from other players.

price_update

Updates the prices of all station vendors with the inflation_value, increasing/decreasing costs across the station, and alerts the crew.

Iterates over the machines list for vending machines, resets their regular and premium product prices (Not contraband), and sends a message to the newscaster network.
