    I have also called in winning cities but I was constantly getting told I was too slow last EG on Loch Ness because I wanted to take an extra couple of seconds checking the best call. Supposedly if you don't call within a nanosecond of the recalc you are not quick enough and people will haul their own choice.

    I'm guessing the people giving you a hard time and doing their own thing never do the calling themselves.

    I dont think it would be bad for the developers to consider letting us switch regions/colors but this should be a one time thing. Often, due to overcrowding issues, people are forced to start in the wrong region, I think they should be given the chance to be on the team they wanted to be on. Maybe make this an Era 1 feature or limit it to the first 3 eras. It's something to consider.

    I like the idea of an association yard with different buildings that would improve the association as a whole. Building would each be donated to by the members, including the HQ and asso Lab which could bring about a lab research chain but instead of trains, it would be association buffs such as speed, wait time, etc. Members wouldnt donate RP but they could donate money or even have tasks they can perform. Its an interesting idea that would take a lot of thought and design but over all, worth the effort and consideration

    Wow! For me, I noticed a difference. Playing on 3 servers, I complete a set every 2 or 3 days. On one express server era 3 just started and I got 3 complete sets during the first fortnight. So, as I see it, it's someone overdone, but much more fun than to collect 12 weeks and get nothing ... so I also think, 100 might return to that old situation again.

    And the big point of sacroima: Yes, if they change the pre-registration, they should also rethink the region-quota. We should be able to get players into all 5 cities of a region before it's closed.

    I have always had bad luck with trainspotter. Not totally sure why but I think I missed the last update (as this mainly applies to servers before the round starts). That being said, I just started a round last Monday so I should see the difference, I just dont, except what I listed.

    I do agree that if they are going to change the pre-registration rule, they need to up the quota. Teams that were together in one round shouldnt have overcrowding issues for the next round except when tons of new people join but that doesnt happen in the first 5 minutes. I think what they need to do is a mix of old and new. If the pre-registering team is remaining in the same region, overcrowding shouldnt effect them. Only if they choose to move.

    I havent really noticed any differences in the tainspoters except that they come in slower and we see Petr a little bit more often. I just started a round 6 days ago. I constantly collect them and havent finished a set yet and I just collected one and got a whole $1200 for them which is pretty much what I have always gotten. The past 2 changelogs have stated an increase in trainspotter worth so why am I not seeing a change to it?

    I honestly dont know when they changed it, guess I didnt even notice but I've been playing a bit longer than that. Wish I had a screenshot of the old Researcher write up. I did say that it lowered time for RP and Randomly generated. I know because it was a pain to calculate the time to the different trains, upgrades,etc. because of the random part.

    These are really good ideas. Would be interesting to see this tried on an Express server. Of course, it could just make those teams that already tend to dominate the game, even stronger but it could also help balance things out.

    during the plus account you have a researcher available. This researcher doesn't give rp"s but shortens research time with 25%.

    e.g. your lab level gives you every 180 minutes a rp, the time is shortened to 135 minutes with the researcher of the + account

    you are correct, the researcher does shorten time by 25%, however, it has not always been that way. The researcher used to randomly generate an RP

    I have had this same issue on 3 servers over the past round. This hasnt caused me any real problems and it will actually clear without restarting game. If I go into staion or lab or any other full screen window, it clears. Besides, there is a pop up that tells us when the recalculation has happened.

    I finished my 3rd End Game in a week this past weekend and I didnt see any auctions but honestly, I dont get licenses during EG most of the time because I'm rarely on a good much more than an hour so not really worth it. Try to spend your license vouchers during era 6. If you feel you have enough wagons/tracks for EG then buy extra wagons or engines, I recommend the highest level wagons/trains you can get. Also a good time to use up extra engine/wagon vouchers. Doing this will give you an extra bank to see you through unexpected needs during EG.

    Is there a way to create a private game world to play with my friends on? If so, how can I do that?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    You must be new! Welcome to Rail Nation!

    The short answer is no. All servers are run by Travian Games and you can't create private servers/worlds.

    If you have any other questions, Don't be afraid to ask. We are here to help :)

    Steamy was correct, you cant have a private world/server but you can in fact, invite your friends (this can be quite lucrative) and create a corporation of your friends alone so in that respect, you could still play together.

    I will say that while full integration will in fact level an industry (proven constantly) I also know that if you wish to level industries faster, it's really not that hard, even when it gets up to the higher levels. If you run full integrated until an industry reaches 75% then spend 1 hour where 10+ run direct (levels 2-10) 15-20 above level 10, you should be able to level the industry within that hour, especially with good investment. This is a theory based on numbers, I havent actually tried it. The over all take away is, leveling industry is done through occupancy and investment.

    It might vary. When we succeeded, there were no SOE servers and USA was only on a test server. We did it on Classic and we did have a super high wait time afterwords but we didnt care. We had leveled an industry in an hour and the brand new good was hard green. We leveled the city again that day but never leveled an industry in an hour again. I never said it was easy, just that it was (at one time) possible.
