I'm sorry - I'm not running the English language version.
Let me try to restate my problem again - it's not
the hotel quality
If you click on your 'yearbook' - the statitistics chart-
go to the very first page (overview) and click on 'tourism rating' (or whatever it's called in English).
The first statistic gives you the overal hotel quality rating.
The second gives you the overall 'holiday region' rating.The third one is my problem.
It should be called something like "Relation - Hotel - Location".
I can get all other indicators to show 90+ easily - but this 3rd indicator would rather drop further than increase.
I drew up another test: Nothing but beach villas this time. Resort on windward beach,
infrastructure behind a gently sloping hill. plenty of grass. Distances to port/airport optimized. Entertainment of all categories. fountains and palms abundant, crime very low. Workers in tourism industry were paid a minimum of 30(!) pesos. US Relations euphoric. Not a shred of waste on the island.
the entire resort area (including yacht port!) was deeduh_doh_duh_doh green for luxury. All quality ratings were >90, hotels even 99.
my 'relative location' rating on the statistics page was at 10!
I edicted a pope, a tv-documentary and ran a tourism ad: the rating dropped to 4 - and went down to 1.
I thought it may be due to the fact, that so many ppl want to come to this island, but there are so few accomodations. I played around with building additional hotels in the area, and my rating did increase slightly - despite the increase in traffic and crime.
While I still don't know WHAT exactly this 3rd rating measures, it almost seems as though lower means better.
Trouble is: I ran one and the same setup for various hotel types.
sleazy peaked at 10
luxury peaked at 25
and beach villa - at 1 (!)
