By default, the game uses SI unit suffixes to display numbers that can get very large...

The first few suffixes: K (kilo) for thousand, M (mega) for million, G (giga) for billion may be familiar to you, but the latter ones are likely unfamiliar to most people.

Once we ran out of SI prefixes, we started compounding them (MY - Mega Yotta), check the table below for more details...

Prefix Power Raw Number
K 103 1 000
M 106 1 000 000
G 109 1 000 000 000
T 1012 1 000 000 000 000
P 1015 1 000 000 000 000 000
E 1018 1 000 000 000 000 000 000
Z 1021 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000
Y 1024 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000
KY 1027 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000
...
YY 1048 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000
