    Leave the light green and round but add 'zzz' over it after 15 minutes or so of no activity, including no mouse, pad or finger movement.


    Btw, AFK = Away from keyboard or what?

    I favor having a portion of the old and new association building methods. The following comments refer primarily to the USA East-West scenario.


    1) Allow pre-registeration for your team's chosen city.

    2) The first pre-registered person to log in to the new game becomes the chair. The next five pre-registered players to log in become the members. Allow one or two newbie spots.

    3) So, your association begins at 6 members plus a newbie or two, if you can recruit them. Sub-associations can be created if desired.

    4) Build your main association as was done previously. Perhaps award HQ vouchers with a slightly higher frequency, in addition to the Lucy task.

    5) To promote a greater participation in HQ donations among all members, award prestige points as is currently done but also award 1 RP for a player's first HQ donation, 2 for the second, etc.


    I feel that returning to the HQ growing requirement will allow time for growth of an aspiring smaller association and also allow the opportunity for the emergence of a surprise city at the beginning of a game.


    With associations nearly fully-staffed at game start in the USA scenario, the winning association (of which I have been a member for several games on Grand Central) and the winning city are virtually predetermined at game start.


    The top associations and their chosen cities will still likely prevail but they will have to work harder to do so.

    The following I noticed immediately but I waited hours to be sure.


    In my Era 6, Day 12 GC game running 25 Lindys + career engine and all bonus engines, I had to abandon using the notebook PC today. The game was locking up frequently when attempting to set schedules following the 4.8 update, where previously it locked up much less often.


    I switched this game to the desktop PC which provides more reliable game service and it is also locking up more often following the update, though less than the notebook PC.


    And actually, up until this update, my Lenovo Yoga 710 notebook and also my Dell desktop unit were performing much better than in previous games. So this release is a big step backwards from the standpoint of reliable game play.


    Hope this information is of use to the developers.

    Thank you for the wide screen information. I shall look at the display options.


    For the game locking up (freezing) problem, I have gotten replies from my corp mates.


    Everyone replying (and others I know that didn't reply) have the same problem. The game freezes or restarts itself following a crash when trying to set consecutive schedules in the later Eras. To try to prevent this happening, we restart constantly throughout the day. All this restarting must put a strain on your servers.


    Most players in our corp are in a dozen or more cities. We run comps and set good schedules frequently.


    If you audit my account, you will see, I assume, that I restart many times a day, either because the game has stopped working or I do so voluntarily.


    Another annoying bug plagueing us: The city location/zoom buttons keep disappearing. This began happening following the latest game upgrade.


    The game freezing problem preceded the latest game upgrade.


    Thanks for listening.

    Oh, I can reply now about the large dialog box issue I mentioned above.


    I'm referring to the size of the city info and the good facility boxes. They are huge, covering most of the map area! And, like I said, they do not even fit on the screen of my Lenovo YOGA 710 notebook. Someone there in RN support has this same notebook so you can view that issue on their device.


    The city info box looks in size like it used to in the past before sidebars were introduced.


    I much prefer to see my map at all times. especially when clicking through all the cities I am connected to to check for current leveling and red/blue hauling status.


    Other people may like the large city and facility boxes as you now have them. So please give us the ability to choose our preference >> Dialog box or sidebar. I prefer the sidebar display.


    And, to be clear, I am not referring to the chat or widget boxes. Those we can use or resize as we please.


    Thanks and ask/comment if you need more explanation.

    The new update is really nice, however:


    1) For the way I play the dialog boxes are much too large. They cover most of the screen on my desktop PC and for my 11" notebook unit, they will not even fit on the screen.


    Can you give us the option to have the city and other info shown on the sidebar so the map remains visible? That is much more user friendly.


    2) MOST IMPORTANT!! Please lighten the load on our devices. What good are all these really nice enhancements if the game will not function? For active players, the game freezes dozens of times per day when attempting to set schedules. And occasionally will freeze or dump me out if I stay logged on too long even if I am doing nothing. I use Win 10 and Chrome.

    A user posted a message with a URL to an interactive USA map showing the facility locations. You could also choose Europe or the International continent.


    Unfortunately, the location is now inactive and I have not found a similar map via searching.


    Does anyone have a link to such a map, please? It's very handy for knowing where to construct track, such as when you have the track worker for a day.


    Thanks, k13
