    Quote from Samisu: “... 5. Nice idea behind this, and more discussion is needed. Base idea now is that buying grain and selling it to cows happens behind the scenes, and you only get to see the earnings. Less earnings the more grain has been transported to cows. Same with city transports. Adding an economic layer where players could actually start losing money will lead to situations where you would need to check on your trains a lot more often, and make plans with other players not to haul the …

    I realize there are a lot of OCD types playing this game for whom having to find every last trainspotter is more a compulsion than a game mechanic. Having my own set of mental wirings I need to compensate for I do sympathize, but the first step on the road to recovery is recognizing you have a problem. 1. You don't need to click on the trainspotters... problem solved. you have already made clear how unimportant you feel they are to gameplay. 2. You definitely don't need to click on that 'last' s…

    To be fair, you didn't say they were on the track at the same time. But your picture shows both trains at the same time. Of course the picture clearly shows the left train is not on the tacks so clearly they didn't crash because it had already derailed. But that doesn't seem very likely, so lets try some more realistic options. My favorite possibility is that the bridge is actually a Mobius strip and the trains are clearly anti-grav trains. One train road the top of the tracks while the other ro…

    Quote from Samisu: “.... Please try fresh installation of another browser without installing any plugins if this helps? ” Except for the Flash Plugin the game kept asking me to install over and over and over again a few months back I assume.

    I think I was referring to the fact that by the time folks get those five lottery tickets they have already received millions of dollars from clicking on those spotters. I have tried to figure how those spotters might provide a revenue stream beyond just keeping folks logged in and active more. Honestly, I just think bubble popping is a basic time killing mechanism these online games provide as a diversion. Yes I like Sundays Very much, U2? P.S. They got booed when they played a concert at my co…

    Quote from Samisu: “ ...Jokes aside he's holding hands in his pockets. ” Heh... not anymore. Some images cannot be unseen.

  • Quote from Samisu: “Hi Stubaski, ... Game doesn't allow the purchase of multiple packages per era. ” There be your answer. Quote from Ada Lee: “ ...Anyway, I can confirm that the super starter and starter packages do stack (i.e are not mutually exclusive)... ” I guess the Super Starter Package would be considered 'pre' era 1

  • Best man at my wedding was COO for the Buffalo Southern railroad... Actually still is. When you are COO of a railroad with one engine, that OO can refer to Operating the train Often Also, when you are the COO for a one engine railroad, repairing and 'spotting' railcars is not an insignificant portion of your revenue stream, or at least it wasn't back when he was best man at my wedding.

    I was a little vague the last time I said this so this time I will steer clear of the flowery prose and stick to the facts. Trainsportters .are a sunday. Every click on a Trainspotter is another spoonful of yummy ice cream. You all are complaining that after you have eaten all the ice cream, the only thing left is a yummy maraschino cherry. Not only that, but as soon as you eat the maraschino cherry, they give you another bloody sunday, for FREE. Now come on, don't you feel the least bit greedy …

  • Quote from Stubaski: “... I could have paid for level 6 of the Engine House and then used the package upgrade for level 7, instead, I used it for level 6, believing I could do a double boost, and now I have to pay a fortune for level 7 .... ” You actually didn't pay THAT much more. Sure, when you pay 650K for a building rather than getting it for free it feels like you lost 650K, because you paid 650K. But when you get a 400K building for free rather than a 650K building for free, you only 'lost…

    ., and today I wake up, and the game is asking me if I want to be a mentor. Its just messing with me to prove that it owns me now. (p.s. I think I worked out that you need to be connected to the city you have mentoring candidates in. makes sense)

    Last round, I got a bunch of folks to mentor. And I enjoyed it. This round, I was going to follow the lead of some folks whose game skills surpassed mine, so I wasn't planning on mentoring. Sure I was going to feel a little guilty saying, NO, GIT GUD NOOB, but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make. But the game never asked me if I wanted to be a mentor. After fully protecting my thoughts with an aluminum coating, I realized the game was not in fact reading my thoughts and that the game operat…

  • Quote from Lord Ocryd: “... is a team game or solo game we can all argue until we're blue in the face ... ” I can agree with that. Interestingly the world is having a similar debate in its economic simulation game. Personally, I am glad that I live in a country that at least says it believes in solo competition, because of that whole being told what to do by 'Lords' in the other system can be brutal.

    More free cash with every click. That $200 is slightly less heart warming in era 6, but in era 1, popping those bubbles buys train cars.

You got three of them for endgame, winning city got 1. 3. I had 10 that did not play endgame at all. (fun getting yelled at to force players who weren't eve…
