I feel like the cap for the loan shark is largely wasted. we spend several points to increase how much we can borrow but we can only borrow by 100k each time. so for the price of between 2 and 3 points we are spending more than that to upgrade.

I think it needs to scale a lot better even if the base is the same but each upgrade adds in say 20m you can borrow. So I upgrade it 10 times that is 200m. I feel it needs buffed even if my numbers are too big

This.

I think when you have money to upgrade your loan cap, then you don't need loans at all.

What about the point of making it worth upgrading the loan cap? Surely it is stupid to upgrade it oh hey I got a merit but little use to me later. Preventing them from being able to sell any items and stored in an unmuggable wallet (that can turn negative that will prevent purchases).To further prevent abuse 1 suggestion is to create a system that would actually help look at suspicious accounts by calculating the wealth of the account by monitoring bazaar price, company price, item bought price, bank account and preventing them from going negative while they owe the loan shark money.

I mean short version- loans from the loan shark are quite pathetic and useless. Furthermore the above system should be implemented anyways as it would give staff a lot easier time to catch multis by looking at suspicious accounts. Also if someone can afford a network of multis to go for upgrading the loans they would likely get flagged by a pattern and then could have the money wiped out of the main account and bust the main account. Sure, it would inject the money if abused, but when caught it would remove as much if not more as they would then catch the main account and could figure out that the main accounts main source of income was multis; it would eliminate that whole accounts wealth.

Seriously when you have to go that far to "protect" money borrowed from the loan shark the initial idea probably isn't feasible.

Oh sure it is, just a matter of if the devs want to do it. I could develop something like this as an extension and it'd likely take me under a day to develop this in its entirety, but the probably is they might pay their devs hourly and not salary. I'm not even a hired developer, just a guy who knows enough about sql and php to make it happen if I know the information of the current set up.

I know I've made a VBA code to text people's cell phones from excel for my work, but that isn't one of my regular duties.
