C2: I wonder why he's settling for a fan and not going straight for air conditioning. Also, if he's already got the air rotating and moving forward, then why would he even need the blades? Isn't that basically what the blades are supposed to do? Wouldn't he just need a tube to put the array in? C3: If forging techniques suck, then why not use wood? It would have been cheaper, lighter and of a better quality in terms of its production. What makes him think they wouldn't be able to understand it? A fan isn't exactly complicated once you remove the motor. Honestly, I'm pretty sure versions of it have existed for centuries at least. C4: Ah, so it wasn't the fan that they wouldn't understand, but his alterations to the array. I thought 2 gold coins was the cost of production? Why is he selling them at a loss? Did he find a way to produce them more cheaply? Or was that original 2 gold including all the wasted materials and whatnot and the actual cost of making one is much lower? C5: Shouldn't all of his coworkers have been fairly well off? It's unlikely that poor people would have had the necessary qualifications to get the job after all. That aside, I'm surprised he didn't just hire his classmates instead. I'm sure quite a few of them were lacking jobs and he should know which ones' work and work ethic he can trust. Doing that, he could have setup a proper factory that would run throughout the day. The only real problem would be quality control, but that should get significantly easier after the first week or so. I wonder what this will do to the small magic crystal market. C6: "Seeing this, Heinz knew that there was nothing he could say. " Sure there is. "Limit one per customer who didn't preorder. No exceptions." Tada. Problem solved. Alternatively, "We'll have another 500 next week, so even if you can't get it today, you can preorder it." Honestly, 1k seems a bit light for a big customer. I sense a lack of commitment on his part C7: Why refuse outright? Why not just set a longer delivery time? It should be completely doable within 2-3 weeks if he takes this business seriously, and there will still be plenty of summer left by then. C9: If he's going to turn down the position, then he should just quit. He's wasting his time working there. There's nothing it can give him that he can't just buy. And, after turning down the promotion so that he can pursue a line of research that Camilla would despise, expecting to have a good relationship with him is a bit of a pipe dream. Well, if we disregard his status as the protagonist. Why hire those students? Why not hire his former classmates? Or were their standards too low? C10: Where is the MC getting the money for all this? He's only got like 400 gold, right? If he's so unhappy with the landlord, then why not leave immediately? He's got nothing invested yet. Now is the best time to nip this sort of problem in the bud. With that sort of attitude from the landlord, its very possible for him to try to steal the factory once its built. C11: “10% stocks!" Is he stupid? He could have bought the slave for 40 gold, 50 tops. 10% of his company is worth thousands of gold, and giving it to a noble will make that noble think he has a controlling interest. Considering that the noble in question is lacking enough in moral fiber for this situation to occur, there's no reason to want them as a business partner. He might as well be gifting his business to this noble on a silver platter :/ He does realize that his taxes go to the viscount, right? The viscount will already have a stake in the business. If he wants more than that, he'll just raise the taxes, or seize the whole factory. This is why he shouldn't be building the factory here in the first place and should be looking for a more reliable landlord. Also, how is he planning to get the factory built in time to make his preorders? Even with magic, it won't be fast. He doesn't have enough money to throw at the problem to change that reality. Or has he decided that the second batch of preorders aren't as important as the first batch and that they can wait a few weeks/months?
