On the Subject of automizing Maintenance

How to repair your car. Step 1: Call a mechanic. There is no step 2…

The module consists of a number plate, a job scroller, a fix button and a memo with the number of jobs that require completion: 2, 3 or 4.

Use the first four characters from the number plate to get the car's value.
Use the table on page 2 or 3 (depending on the first 2 letters) to figure out the job and the cost coming with them.

Note: This manual uses some shorthands for the jobs instead of their full names.

Write-offs:

Always choose write-off for the orange cells with a "W".
Never choose write-off for the green cells with a "N".
Otherwise choose write-off if the number from this table is smaller than the cost of the non-covered jobs. This cost can be found in the table for the jobs on the following two pages.
