At the end of the turn, if there is an overproduction, it's stacked instead of being reported. 2. At the beginning of a turn, an interest is applied to the stacked industry, allowing it to increase a bit. 3. The stacked industry is capped at 5 * system's industry. 4. If the overproduction cannot be stacked, it's conserved for the next turn like the current mechanism. 5. When the automatons build improvements & ships, the industry is used in the following order: a. system's industry b. overproduction c. stacked industry 6.
