I'm in the beginning of my third year studying economics at my university, and the Great Depression mechanics really annoy me to no end, especially since Free Market is such a useful civic otherwise. What annoys me is not the fact that they happen and affect my stability, but the simple fact that the Great Depression was not caused by excess production in any way, shape, or form. I'm aware that it would be a lot of work to change how the in-game Great Depression works, but I have a few changes that should be possible to implement. All of the other ways that it functions can even remain unchanged. 1) Changing the name from Great Depression to something else, maybe even "Recession" 2) Reducing the severity of the recession but increasing the likelihood of it showing up Recessions occur for a number of reasons, and there's still debate over what those reasons are. The Great Depression, on the other hand, was caused by a host of poor decisions by policy makers. Would such a change be possible for me or a mod-mod to accomplish? It's not a big deal, just something that annoys me now that I'm studying economics.
