    Hi Cemaris,


    I'm afraid there won't be a double system, just this one PLUS Account that serves all players as well as possible. These new features were wished by the player community (and some for a very long time - like saving your schedules). If you have any other suggestions how to turn this 150 Gold PLUS Account more to your liking, I'd be happy to hear!

    CHANGELOGS

    Hi there,


    Would you try returning to forum as usual, if it now works and Deutsch is gone? You can contact me privately by creating a conversation after clicking my name - so we can continue there ^^

    III - ttimbul - please specify the nick and the server you play on, to receive your prize.


    I just realised I never responded to this. My nick is 10292 and server is COM202 (Loch Ness). Hope I'm not too late to claim :-)

    Hi there, just added your prize ^^

    In a similar way to the thunder storm and track maintenance feature in each city once per server, this feature could be similar, but have a positive affect on the cities inhabitants (or will it?!) It would probably need to be restricted to the first three era's, otherwise the disparity between those getting it in era 1 and those in later era's would be too great. The feature is a 'gold rush' as in the old times when all of a sudden thousands of people were drawn to remote inhospitable site to prospect for gold. For a short period (6 hours?) a new track would appear on the map, a dead end with a gold mine at the end. For every 100 tonnes of gold ore each player transports to the city, they would recieve 10 gold to spend in game. The site could have a waiting time, so that the more people used it the higher the wait would be. To lessen the disparity between the first three era's, the track to the 'Gold Rush' site could be further out in the later era's, so 2 or 3 tracks in era 1, 4 or 5 in era 2, and 6 or 7 in era 3, thereby lessening the effects of having more and faster engines that can carry more. Gold ore wagons would be free and available in whatever number was required. Unlike the thunder storms and track maintenance, this would bring something to boost or enhance your game, but it could be a double edged sword. Could you imagine a city that is preparing to upgrade to the next level and then randomly the 'Gold Rush' feature activates in their city, half (or more) of their active players are going to drop growing the city in favour to 'striking it rich' thereby pitching the city into turmoil for several hours, and increasing tensions. For people who are connected to more than one city, once they have accessed gold ore wagons once, they won't be available again, so it's a one time feature. Your guys could have some fun with the graphics for the gold mine, and the developers even more fun with bigging the feature up, 'there's gold in them there hills!' That's it, that's my latest idea :) What do you think?

    That's a great idea! :thumbsup:


    I started to think about a 'Gold Vein' feature - Gold Vein found from iron / copper / coal mine, and for a short period of time you'd carry 1 Gold with each engine run (doesn't matter how many wagons you've got), to the maximum of let's say 300 Gold. Might be easier feature to implement...


    Let's see how far this idea goes, and then I'll be sure to share it with Game Developers <3
