The Statue of Maintenance.png
Statue that not just demonstrates the wealth of your island but also serves as a celebration of your industrial success. It has such a positive effect on your population that it reduces your island's maintenance requirements by 5%. In order to get the bonus, the statue needs to be provided with 'Fuel gas' on a continuous basis. However, if you don't maintain your statue you will get a negative effect. Because nothing demotivates your workers from performing maintenance more than seeing a broken statue of maintenance. You can build this multiple times should your wealth allow it, but you get the bonus only once.

The Statue of Maintenance is a late-game structure that serves not only as a landmark, but also provides some Maintenance reduction for a symbolic Fuel Gas cost. It requires only 2 Fuel Gas per minute and also has an internal storage for 20 Fuel Gas that provides reserves for considerable amount of time in case the gas supply is out.

Plaque

In the building window, the following text is shown:

Text on the plaque:

Life can be rough,
if you don't maintain your stuff.
And when things fail, just look -
missing entry in the service book!

In the Supporter Edition, the statue can be upgraded into The Statue of Maintenance (Golden) version, unlocked by the same research. The upgrade costs 800 Gold and provides only cosmetic differences. While this version of the Statue cannot be selected from the menu, it can be built directly using the Clone tool. In this case, the cost will slightly differ from that of the base Statue plus cost of the upgrade.
