    Thank you for bringing this up here on forum!

    Message system and the chat widget are separate features, and it's good to hear of your experiences with these tools.

    If you have more feedback, please contact game support about bugs - or use this thread to give us a more general image of how you use these tools and what is missing. I'm sorry to hear of these issues and I'll be sure to forward all your feedback!

    Based on the comments so far (not just this thread), the browser version has a chat widget that works and also the message system is in good use - but the app version has its issues?

    What a great topic Twisted Angel

    I hope others join the discussion as well. To limit the abuse of sitter function was not the only reason for these changes. Another reason was players should play the game for themselves, and use the sitter function only when needed. Some players got used to the idea of playing with your own account + sitting another account, never having to worry about being offline or planning your strategy to fit your online hours. You could give all the necessary tools to another player to watch over your account indefinitely.

    Sitter mode was reworked with update: Changelog for Update 4.10.0

    • It is only possible to sit for an account for a maximum of 30 days (15 days on express servers) in total.
    • Options have been added to allow sitters to use vouchers and Gold (each function can be set separately).
    • A day means, beginning after the daily calculation at 00:00 (UTC) until the next day at 00:00 (UTC). In this time the sitter can do his sitting more than once and it counts as one day. After 00:00 (UTC) of the next day the next day begins and is only counted if the sitter does sitting further.

    What if there were other options after the 15 / 30 days are used up? What are the things you need the most from a sitter, if you yourself are unavailable during a workday (8-12 hours)? Could there be coupons for example that mimic the sitter functions, when other players visit your station concourse?

    Dear players,

    We have two batches of updates coming.

    On Wednesday 23.01.2019, we will update the following Classic servers between 09:45 and 11:15 am UTC:

    The game worlds are expected to be unavailable during the maintenance.

    Update for version will be installed. You can find the changelog here: Changelog for Update 4.12.0

    We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and wish you lucrative hauling!

    Hi mollernielsen

    Quite a wide question you have there 8)

    To change associations, you need to first leave the asso you are now part of. Then you can tap on another association and ask to join in or accept invite.

    For moving engines, I would say go through the tasks given by Lucy (the nice lady with a question mark on her icon). Lucy will teach you all the basics how to bring in the dollars!

    If you want to change your home city, then go to profile > profile options > city

    From here you can find guides for new players and more experienced tactics: Guides & Tutorials

    And of course there's a super helpful player community out there you can chat with in your gameworld!

    So, a feature that lets you keep the same goods but changes the factories based on waiting times and routes - whichever route brings in the most money?

    What happens when the waiting times change so that the old route is suddenly better?

    Or when your association as a team effort wants to grow and use certain factories over others before golden hour or in endgame for example?

    All things considered, I would say this 'refresh of routes' feature could not be automatic. But, as an optional feature it would bring something new to the game for sure: One tap and your engines would change to the routes that bring in most profit. Tap this button once an hour and you're good to go!

    Or perhaps only when the new track is built and it offers the same hauling routes with better profits (at the moment), game would ask 'Do you want to update your route?' - but only as a one time question. After that, it would be the player's responsibility to follow the money.

    Please keep in mind that I have no tech expertise, nor do I know how many players would actually need such feature. Just seemed like a nice topic :D

    Update: Facebook login issue will be fixed in about 20 minutes.

    Update: Facebook login has been fixed.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience with these login issues.

    What if some players have found their winning formula and others will need to keep searching?

    Take it as part of the game, learning best ways to bring in prestige and use those tactics to win the round 8)

    You can also try asking around if other players are willing to share their knowledge and experience with you.

    There will never be a feature in Rail Nation, that makes it easy to start a blame game over majorities. It's not easy to tell who to 'blame' + there's nothing wrong in breaking the majority and gathering all the prestige you can get as a solo player. These shame / blame game tools would turn the game into something completely else...

    My big problem lately is the 1.5 minute youtube videos. I usually snag every video I can in the first era. The last two restarts - zero. I gave up on them.

    Is there no way to skip the video after a set time has passed? I've seen this option to skip longer videos somewhere :/

    Hi Ron!

    US101 had a frustrating start, some players had a hard time joining the server and pre-registration did not work.

    The pre-registration information was lost (restarting would not help), but all players received 10 HQ donation tickets to help rebuild their corp. Support is always open for players to get further answers and service if needed.

    Server is running as it should now, and we found the reason why these issues happened. For future rounds, there will be time to double check everything works before restarting a server, and systems to prevent these inconvenient and frustrating starts from happening.
