So you have leader board points that were turned into career points. Use them all on the ERAS. They are the hardest to get.
We, the players are asked often, every survey on live and the PTR servers: "How much fun do we have playing Rail Nation?" Last year or two years ago was a survey, in wich we was asked, "How can make more fun Rail Nation`s games??" Then I had no idea, what to propose to the RN.
Now I have come some great ideas (two of them I have also proposed last year). That's why I came here on the Forum with this subject. Surely you know the animated movies entitled Ice Age. Each movie begins, ends and has some scenes with the saber-toothed squirrel Scrat, who is obsessed with collecting acorns. Although animation movies, the scenes with Scrat make them more fun.
In my opinion, competition and rivalry are not fun. I remember the stress at work ... Therefore I propose more animation in the Rail Nation games than they currently have.
1:Balloons, airplanes and helicopter could land and take-off near the home cities not only pass by. In Endgame there could be UFOs to land and take-off near cities, especially since there are several places on the map with Nazca Lines. An older player told me that long ago there were UFO flyby cities. However so far I have not seen any, although I am RN member since summer 2017.
2:The researcher may move to the bottom of the screen depending on the progress of research engines, and not just sit in the upper right corner. If such player research first, second or third locomotive, then the researcher could stand under it possibly look from time to time with the laser pointer on the research engine.
These two examples are general animations for each scenario (Classic, American Dreams, Steam over Europe, etc.). In addition there may be other animations, for example:
3:In American Dreams might put the rival`s flags over cities on the map. Flags waving in the wind, smaller or larger, depending on the proportion in which cities are occupied by rivals.
4:In Steam over Europe could be animate special routes where are under construction, wich linking regions of the continent. When a player invests money then a train could crosses and return on the special route.
To me these things are fun, and make me laugh. I will come back with new posts when I have other similar ideas.
I wait to other players ideas and your opinions, those who works at Rail Nation. I am aware that the animations require higher performance from games, but over time could enter them after implementation of HTML5 its entirety.
Thanks for your attention. Have a wonderful day!
PS: I think that children should have more ideas on this subject. Let us ask them, showing them how to play Rail Nation …
No children. Its not a Childs game. Must be over 18 years. If all the good ideas you have come up with, create more lagg and freezing. Then I choose no lagg and less freezing.
In Big Ben and Tower Bridge all players who stop playing and turn into black dots need to be auto removed from Mayor and Presidents votes. It seems that some Presidents are using beginner players to win votes and then dumping them.
I stopped counting the black dot, level 1 players at 100 and there was easy that many again.
Does the game still have bonus codes ?
I often have one train that shows nothing and does nothing and I have to sell it and get another one.
I would like to see the harbors in Big Ben and Tower Bridge, be controlled by the controlling association and not by region officers. Most regional officials have no idea our to play it. If you are playing to harbors or ware houses then you will not be elected to the regions officials. The ships as fun as they could be are not being put to good use in the game.
I don,t like how hard our titles are to view. They have been made unimportant. I think it is a fun part of the game. Put back on display for everyone to see. Like they used to be.
The worst is when the controller, calls what industry to play from. Hello waiting time is 10 minutes . I,m going haul out of the called play.
End games are very abusive especially for chairs. Its not even their game play at fault.
Behind every player there is a real person.
Each association should call their own game play in an EG.
Hauling for a megacity in a classic scenario and neither the online good nor the offline good can be hauled by this player's career engine and bonus engines. Player has 3 choices … 1) park trains 2) go away to a corner totally out of any megacity catchment area and farm 3) go to same corner and haul required goods from there to the megacity.
It seems from people's reactions that 1 & 2 are acceptable but 3 is not? Why? Is it that people assume that the player is hauling from within megacity catchment or is there something about the game that I have missed?
Too many people listen to the so called experts and the whole Mega City fails. Follow your own game play. Get rid of on-line and off -line calls.
You have answered my question. Flashdrive ends in 2020. So you are changing to HTML5. Will this be automatic ? Or will we have download HTML5 supplier ?
Yes I think its a wasted space. I like the idea of a museum and we could keep a collection of engines . Get points for the standard of the collection. On view for association members too see or anyone who is looking at your Station. Even if its just career points.
Sorry NO, its a bad idea.
How about a thumbs up and thumbs down in forum chats. Would make it easier to get peoples feeling on subjects.
They would like people who travel by train, every day to work. To greet one and other and be friendly.
Learn to out play them. It takes years , NOT weeks.
