  1. Just something small I've wondered about for a while now, When you've got say:
    1,030,830,600 CC's why is it followed with an M? When it should be a B for Billion? And even if you used a title that's very, Very rarely used over the term Billion it should be at least TM for a Thousand Millions which is a Billion! And when you hit say 1,030.830.600,150 CC's are you going to leave that followed with an M? Or T for a Trillion or the lesser known Million Millions which would be MM, And lets's face it have you ever hear someone say "He/She is a Thousand Millionaire"? Unlikely! But I bet you've heard that sentence finish with "Billionaire"! The same goes for "Trillionaire"! Just a thought surely it should be B not M, Then T, Followed by Q for a Quadrillionaire if you live long enough to get that rich!?!?
    Basically I'm just saying it should be a B for Billion as it's much more than a million! And using a TM for a Thousand Millions would just be stupid & confusing!

    In Spanish Speaking Countries, 1 Billion is actually 1.000.000.000.000
    While I believe in English is 1.000.000.000

    Maybe Germany (Farmerama originated there) have a different definition of billion.

    Not sure if this helps, but felt like sharing it

  3. @escalonilla What I typed is 1,000,000,000 is a Billion and that's true, What I missed is that that is using the most commonly formatted 'Short Scale'! (well i didn't completely miss it as i typed about it being followed by 12 numbers) A 1 followed by 9 numbers is a Billion, If it's followed by 12 numbers like you've placed that's still a Billion using the lesser used BUT still completely valid 'Long Scale'.
    And a Million is 1,000,000, A 1 followed by 6 numbers as shown both 'Short Scale' & 'Long Scale' that doesn't change!

    Here's a quick Short Scale Chart with the Long Scale briefly noted (i though this was a Farm Game not something to truly mess with the head, the Farming does that as it is!)

    Short Scale: (Long Scale):
    A 1 with Six Zeros After Is 1,000,000 - Million.
    A 1 with Nine Zeros After Is 1,000,000,000 - Billion. (with 12 zeros)
    A 1 with Twelve Zeros After Is 1,000,000,000,000 - Trillion. (with 18 zeros)
    A 1 with Fifteen Zeros After Is 1,000,000,000,000,000 - Quadrillion. (with 24 zeros)
    A 1 with Eighteen Zeros After Is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 - Quintillion. (with 30 zeros)
    A 1 with Twenty One Zeros After Is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - Sextrillion. (with 36 zeros)
    And so on and so on up to a Googolplex which is 1 with a Googol of Zeros After It, A Googol is 1 with 100 Zeros After It.

    Phew! I just want to be a noted Billionaire!!!!!!!!
