    • For all megacities, the quantity of goods to be supplied in the endgame is now based on the megacity with the highest city level!



    What do you mean by that?
    Does it mean that the first city defines what the others carry, but that for more or less tons?
    Thank you

  • finaly prestige gone for investing?

    Yes, the city with the highest level defines the amount of required goods in the endgame for ALL remaining megacities, regardless of their level. So keeping the level of your city low intentionally for the endgame is not an advantage anymore.



    finaly prestige gone for investing?

    No. But given the fact that there are new methods to get prestige, it might not be as powerful anymore. Let's find out, shall we?


    Is there any new career achievement coming with that scenraio?

    Yes, as Hilti said, there'll be one for achieving at least 20k prestige.

    No more daily City prestige, so it's the dawn of Prestige hunters?

    Correct, no more daily city prestige, just prestige for level ups. Maybe this creates new methods to "hunt" prestige? We'll see.

  • No. But given the fact that there are new methods to get prestige, it might not be as powerful anymore. Let's find out, shall we?

    pitty, stil fights over stupid majortities to gain little prestige and used as harrasement. The biggest spoiler of the entire game. And free haulers profit over city haulers like parasites.

    more prestige hunting by investing than because because less prestige is payed with city deliveries.

    Code
    1. So from what I understand, the tons will be the same for all megacities regardless of the level is that?
    2. So what is the advantage of finishing first? Is it just the lead time to start shipping?
    3. Will you keep the 30m separating the beginnings?
  • What speed the game will be ?

    Express, 2x

    The connections to the megacities makes the tons different

    More questions(sorry ;)) :

    Will there be passengers?
    Will there be maximum limits for city climbs during the 6 Eras?

    same as on classic.

    With passengers

    the same maximum as it is on classic

    "all players who have supplied required goods to an industry will receive prestige as soon as the industry levels up"

    only those or additionally (to current investment-pp)?


    Quote

    "City prestige is no longer awarded daily, but only when the city reaches a new level.

    The prestige is distributed for all goods, no matter if the good is replaced or not."

    which basically reduces the pp-income from cities overall.

    is it planned to nerf pp-pax and competitions aswell? currently, already, pax drivers and comp drivers are dominating and reducing the pp from city deliveries accelerates that effect.


    Quote

    "Only players who actually supply a city will count as active players and influence city consumption"

    so basically, i set the red BE on 1 RG in 5 different cities and i count as an active player there. is that correct?

    also, due to the distribution changing to levelup, as soon as i count as active once, i can ignore that city (for even up to a week) until it levels, assuming my only purpose for that city is keeping their consumption high?

  • City prestige for level-ups

    • City prestige is no longer awarded daily, but only when the city reaches a new level.
    • The prestige is distributed for all goods, no matter if the good is replaced or not.


    Does that mean, e.g. when the city levels from level 10 to 11, that you get PP for all 12 goods which were delivered so far? Repsectively do you also get PP for goods which are not displayed anymore in the "other goods" section in the city screen, when the city is like level 30?

  • Yes, the city with the highest level defines the amount of required goods in the endgame for ALL remaining megacities, regardless of their level. So keeping the level of your city low intentionally for the endgame is not an advantage anymore.


    So that the levels are not kept artificially. The warehouse volume should not depend on these levels at all, but only on active players.

    And then, in fact, nothing has changed for the final, it is also more profitable to gather in one city with the whole crowd and "roll back" the final. And those who did not break into this "movement" in their hometown will not be able to do anything.

  • What speed the game will be ?

    2x speed.


    Will there be passengers?

    The basis is still the Classic Scenario, so yes.


    Will there be maximum limits for city climbs during the 6 Eras?

    Same as on Classic.

    which basically reduces the pp-income from cities overall.

    is it planned to nerf pp-pax and competitions aswell? currently, already, pax drivers and comp drivers are dominating and reducing the pp from city deliveries accelerates that effect.

    Not for this episode, no.

  • is it planned to nerf pp-pax and competitions aswell? currently, already, pax drivers and comp drivers are dominating and reducing the pp from city deliveries accelerates that effect

    But city players gets prestige from deliveries to their factories on factories lvlups, which pax drivers wouldn't be able to abuse as good as they did with the 20+ low level villages.

    So it will be a battle between investment + competition prestige against prestige from investments, city lvlup and deliveries to the factories, so it can be interesting.
