Pacific Ethanol's first ethanol plant will start producing next week

Sometimes I imagine the world really looks and acts like a computer strategy game. You know, like Civ or Age of Empires or something like that, where you collect your resources and build your factories and make your units. The real world (or, as some like to call it, First Life) is more complicated, but in some aspects the analogy holds.
Take the announcement from Pacific Ethanol that their first finished ethanol plant will start producing ethanol next week. The plant, located in Madera, California, should be running at full speed (producing enough to make 35 million gallons a year) by mid-November. Upon completing this project, can't you just imagine a game window popping up and your digital economic advisor telling you that your cornfields are now worth +1?
