Chapter 561 – Coin Calculator

Slider type coin calculator – Prototype

Prototype was made from the forest of death materials.

Simple design and supports all coins but uses a lot of magic stones.

Had a dispute about whether to deploy them or not and the civil servant girls won.

Slider type coin calculator – Advance Mass Produced Type

The mountain elves dropped all their current projects in response to the demand and managed to complete this second type.

The design became simpler compared to the prototype and there’s also a boost in performance.

Eight units were made. Three for Village Five and three for Big Roof Shashaato.

The other two were deployed in Big Tree Village.

Slider type coin calculator – Mass Produced Type A

The royal family and nobles of the demon king’s kingdom saw the Advanced Mass Produced Type in Big Tree Village. Pretending to be calm, they asked “How much?”. As a result of the bullish negotiation, production was started.

To increase the mass production speed and lower the costs, part of the previous model’s functions were deleted.

It became a computer that counts coins circulating in the demon king’s kingdom.

24 units were produced.

Twenty units were given to the demon king’s kingdom and four units were given to the Goroun Company.

Slider type coin calculator – Gift Type

A version of Mass Produced Type A but with luxurious exterior design.

In order to satisfy noble users, opinions from the said type of people were adopted before manufacturing started.

The exterior design was made in the newly established workshop of the mountain elves in Village Five.

Sold with handmade special boxes worth 2 gold coins by the Goroun Company but it is always sold out.

Even if you make a reservation, you need to wait for at least a year to get one.

There are also several redesigned and personalized versions.

Slider type coin calculator – Mass Produced Type B

Mass produced model made for commoners. To decrease the price, durability and design were omitted.

Materials were collected around Village Five and some parts were made ordered outside.

Low cost target.

However, it still costs around 15 silver coins and future sales is worrying.

Although not related to production, wealthy merchants who were not able to get their hands on gift type tampered it without permission resulting in computational performance problems.

Remodeling and repair can only be done in licensed workshops.

Slider type coin calculator – Special Type

A calculator designed for reward medals.

It is installed in the hall of my mansion and anyone can use it…..

No one has used it so far.

Next spring, village chief will use it upon distribution of medals.

A certain human country.

Conversation between the Finance Minister and his subordinates.

「This is the coin calculator from the rumor in the demon king’s kingdom.」

「Yes. It’s quite an item desu.」

「Can we produce it in our country?」

「It is possible but….that」

「What?」

「It uses magic stones in order to work….mass production would be hard」

「I see.」

「And the coins that are circulating in our country are not being recognized. Adjustment is quite difficult.」

「Mou, then, we can’t even use it.」

「Right. At the time of purchase, we already requested the seller if they can customize it per region but they refused.」

「…..why did they refuse?」

「They asked “from what country were you” and you probably can imagine what happened next.」

「Right. That’s certainly troublesome. But….」

「If you bring it to the designated workshop, it seems like it can be customized. It will only cost one large copper coin….」

「What a headache… It’s like declaring our technology is inferior to the technology of the demon king’s kingdom. That can’t be. Gufufufufu……eh, eeeiiii! We have to show the ability of our country!」

「I know. That’s the plan.」

「We can’t waste the purchasing fee. Continue the research.」

「Understood.」

At a later date.

A customized gift type for their country’s coins was delivered from the demon king’s kingdom so the Finance Minister declared that the goods had no sin.

Another human country.

Conversation between the Finance Minister and his subordinates.

「Fake money?」

「Yes. There is a coin that was flipped by the coin calculator and when I looked it up….I found that it was cleverly made.」

「How much?」

「When I checked 1000 pieces of silver coins in the royal palace, I found that 12 pieces were fake. 」

「You managed to check a thousand?」

「Only because there’s a coin calculator.」

「I see. That’s convenient.」

「Though I don’t like that it came from the demon king’s kingdom.」

「That doesn’t matter. A good product is a good product no matter where it was made. Don’t forget that.」

「My apologies.」

「However, 12 out of a thousand are fake? That’s too many.」

「I agree. It’s great that we realized it at this stage.」

「Certainly not. Meet all the large commercial companies and alert them. Check the source of that fake money. It could be a conspiracy of another country.」

「Understood.」

「Also, check all the gold coins in the royal palace using that coin calculator. The royal palace must never use fake money.」

「W-what!」

The economic turmoil caused by fake money planted by another country was handled in advance because of the quick response of the minister.

    At the veterinarian’s office, the telephone rings:
    A man says “Listen, doctor, tomorrow I’ll send my old dog with my wife. Give her a powerful poison so she does not suffer too much.”
    The vet responds “Okay, but will the dog know how to return home alone?”

    Thanks for the chapter!!!!

  3. CounterMAN

    sooner or later, there will be Computer in this world

  4. dicky satria

    poor mountain elves…. got lots of order lel

    > This is my guess, the next project that VC could think of would be robotic arm.
    In conjunction with golems, the robotic arm will take care the chicken farm that specialize in egg production, so that the pudding and any egg base product like pizza dough, cake, chiffon cake and so on will properly produce so that the girls can eat sweets anytime.

    > Good for the first human kingdom, they realize that the dexterity and engineering capabilities + Loo’s knowledge in handling the magic stone are hard to tamper. I am only imagining that they were trying to tamper the core circuit of an Integrated Circuit like Intel/AMD processors…

    @Elite4Harmon. I’m curious what the fuction of novel update. Are they some kind of moderator in translation community?

    1. Alfard

      Is for people that read to much novels, since you can register until what chapter you read, have reading lists, etc. And make searching for new novels more easy

    2. Shino

      Discussion sites, you can promote the novel, updating, spoiler, suggesting the novel that’s worth to translate to the available group, giving a critic to the novel and so on

    3. Elite4Harmon

      Novel update’s goal is to be the library of the translation community.
      as we all know, there are tons of fan translators(like me) and organizations who are not affiliated with each other. Novel Updates started a fan made website that lists fan translator’s releases.
      They are more like supporters of the translation community rather than moderators.

      They don’t know but the DK is slowly controlling the money circulation in the world,
      VC should create a bank already,

  7. Zax

    Conveniently thwarts a forging scheme too. Thanks for the chapter

  8. Shino

    Their country should be grateful and not thinking something stupid like stealing the core technology or the craftsman (only if they can escape from the Village Five)

  9. Treyon

    You can make a simple coin counting device out of cardbox, glue and some plastic. It only counts the coins inserted and nothing else XD. But its impressive the VC coin calculator can find fake currency

  10. OHYsReading

    Why not make a simple machine/magical tool/golem that produces each part needed for every other machine and just let them go mass produce, then make another only for assembly and the darn mountain elves could be more free for recreational procreation

    1. Chris Sizemore

      You do know that Mountain Elves like making stuff? Working on stuff like the coin counters is what they do for fun. And if you told VC that automation would encourage more night visits, he would ban automation. VC’s night life is busy to the point he wants to import men. Unfortunately to satisfy the women in BTV he would have to find a male that is at least comparable to himself…
