    Here is a simple formula to estimate when PAX will complete. This is useful for planning when to be online.

    PAX delivery P(t) increases over time t from 0 to a final number P(T) which is determined by city level.

    Measure P at one point in time P(1) and a second point in time P(2). If the time interval between recordings is EXACTLY 1 hour, then P(2) - P(1) is the hourly rate of PAX delivery.

    The time to completion in hours is then calculated as [P(T) - P(2)] / [P(2) - P(1)].

    This estimate is only as accurate as the consistency of the rate of PAX delivery. If people change the trains, then the delivery rate changes and the result would have to be re-estimated.

    I am running FireFox. It is not the browser, because I did not have this problem 1 month ago. The problem is getting worse over time. Requests from the page to the server are not getting a response which causes the game to hang.

    An even bigger nuisance is when you are sitting for an account and the game hangs. When you reload the page, you are no longer sitting and the game can hang when switching to the sitter.

    I have had to resort to reloading the page shortly before re-scheduling my trains, and that doesn't work all the time because the page loses contact with the server in a short period of time.

    You can observe lost contact when mouse over facilities no longer works.

    You can try just waiting for a response, but you may be waiting for Godot.

    I am in End Game on Steam Boiler server.

    I have had to reload the page the last 4 calls in order to set my train schedules for the call. This is a huge nuisance when it happens a lot.

    My other favorite is trying to switch servers. The game hangs. I reload and I have to re-enter the password to get back to where I was before the game became hung.

    I am playing 3 servers at this time. I estimate that I have to reload pages in order to continue somewhere between 50-100 times per day.

    I do not have problems with any other websites.

    It is not about clearing cache. The last time I cleared the cache it took me 9 attempts to log into the game.

    It is becoming a real nuisance to do anything. Whenever you press a button, the action may occur, or the game may hang.

    Train scheduling is hanging on Let's Go almost half the time.

    The game hangs on login, logout, changing servers, upgrading a building in the station house, laying track, and even watching the videos that may or may not be broken.

    The introduction of so powerful an agent as steam to a carriage on wheels will make a great change in the situation of man.

    If I win a prize, please send to US01 Crankshaft (start on Monday) or COM05 Cylinder Head if awarded before Monday.

    I continue to enjoy this great game. Congratulations on the roll out of Origin.

    Now for the "but."

    The connectivity is getting worse on a daily basis. The game hangs on login, choosing a server, game play, and even logging out. The train scheduler hangs in every possible place: selecting a train, clicking a station, clicking "done" and clicking "let's go if you have Plus.

    I suspect that most of the train scheduler problems that have been reported are due to poor connectivity rather than a software bug.

    Please do not ask whether I have flushed my cache or not. This is the standard response for all problems reported.

    The techies working on the game need to play the game. They would know which videos are a problem. They would be aware of the above issues.

    I was upgrading Centaurs to Olympus when I started having problems setting new train schedules. I do not get any goods icons to set the schedules. After the first problem, it resolved by reloading, but now I cannot set a new schedule on any train on this Server. I can set schedules on trains on other servers, so I do not see how this can be a problem with my browser. I have tried reloading, re-starting the game, and re-booting Windows.

    When I am in the New Schedule screen, there are no goods icons to click on.

    Text Box, but no video. You get the opportunity to reload.

    US 101:

    Some Car Ad has a bunch of buttons to check out their site. There is a video in a box which plays a series of 3 or 4 short videos. When the last video finishes, the ad hangs and does not complete. Maybe it is waiting for a click or something.


    No video problems noted.

    You get an alert saying that your Lab has created an RP, but it is not there if created by the Researcher. When you get a regular RP, and spend that RP, the missing RP appears, so you have 1 RP instead of zero. You have to spend a 2nd time.

    The Game of Thrones ad is running fine on COM05 and US01.

    Ad for shows a text box but no video. You can reload when the counter runs down to zero. I mostly get a different video after reload.

    So, there are still some problem ads sneaking through, but it is much better than it was 1 week ago.

    If you have Plus, you get the advantage of a researcher. The points generated by the Researcher do not show up in your Research Point inventory until AFTER you spend research points. So, if you have spent all your points, and your researcher generates a point, it appears that you have none. When you get a point via your Lab, it shows up as 1 point. When you spend the point, the missing Researcher Point appears and you can spend it.


    DNA = D, Flask = F, Atom = A, Triangle = T, Cone = C

    Assuming the numbers are the sum of the elements:

    3D + 2A = 21;

    3A + 2D = 24;

    So, 6D = 42 - 4A = 72 - 9A

    5A = 72 - 42 = 30

    A = 6

    18 + 2D = 24

    2D = 24 - 18 = 6

    D = 3

    2D + 2A + F = 27

    6 + 12 + F = 27

    F = 27 - 6 - 12 = 27 - 18

    F = 9

    3F + 2T = 51

    27 + 2T = 51

    2T = 51 - 27 = 24

    T = 12

    D + F + T + C + A = 45

    3 + 9 + 12 + C + 6 = 45

    C = 45 - 6 - 12 - 9 = 45 - 30

    C = 15

    D + 2C + T + F = ??

    ?? = 3 + 30 + 12 + 9 = 59

    ?? = 54
