    The 20% building vouchers needs to have an option on whether to use it for a certain building or save it for later.


    Like with boost and mechanic vouchers and instant dispatch you can choose when to use it. With the instant upgrade on building voucher you can choose to use it when you want. But the 20% building discount voucher you don't have the option to use it or not it just automatically goes onto the first building you decide to upgrade.


    I may want to save that voucher to use on an expensive upgrade like lab but i dont have enough to upgrade it yet so i decide i want to upgrade cheaper buildings while i wait for my money to build up. But i can't do that because it will automatically use it then it is just wasted on a cheap upgrade. So i have to hold off upgrading anything until i have enough to use it for my lab.

    A lot of players stay logged into the game showing online when they are actually away from the computer. There should be an option to set yourself as afk. this will help when you are messaging members of the association and they are showing online and you think they are ignoring you.


    Especially when a worker is up that you want to bid for and a playing showing online hasn't donated and you message them asking why and think they must be being stingy with their cash lol.


    So an option to either put yourself as afk or even doing something that after a certain length of time of no activity it shows you as afk. Like when you arnt doing anything and william comes on your screen but it still shows you as green online so why no when he pops up it puts you automatically as away.

    We really need some new clothing to be made available. There hasn't been anything new for years. I keep winning clothing vouchers which i can't use because i own every piece of clothing so they just go to waste.


    Bring in something new, how about doing what you used to do and have special items available during certain events. Like you could have brought in a new birthday hat and party outfit for your birthday event. Easter is coming up so how about something for that. I think the whole avatar could be overhauled really with more options.

    Thats sounds ok I was thinking along similar lines myself. At present no one can sit for 12 hours which should be kept as it is. If you do need a sitter on your account they should only need to be sitting for max 15 mins to sort your things out that is ample time to do what is needed. Then i would suggest that no one can sit for another 4 hours and again only for 15 mins. So basically a sitter can roughly sit 4 times a day for approx 1 hour in total. Or instead of 15 days make it in hours so say 1 hour a day x 6 weeks for express server is 49 hours so round off to 50. Then on normal servers this would be 100hrs. May be worth having a look at the numbers then tweaking a little.

    The main issue to me, is that a few workers are worth only a few seconds (Davenport in the morning for repairing trains, Roosevelt at recalc 0:00 GMT). Basically, you bid for them, use them, and then throw them away.

    This is exactly the reason the early dismissal should be removed. The throw away culture of some associations. They are not only useful to use once then throw away. The servicing worker can be used multiple times a day. Plus take into account than an association with 25 members who all log in at different times so your being a little selfish to bid and use it once then dismiss it what about others in your association who haven't logged in yet to be able to use it. The extra prestige for delivery to cities worker is useful more than once. It can also be useful when levelling the city so you gain prestige when the good is completed. On express servers you can level a city twice a day.


    I agree with the being able to see more workers in advance perhaps if you can see what workers are coming up in the next 12 hours like with competitions where you see far in advance what competitions are coming up so you can plan ahead.

    Hi

    This i have seen has been a problem for years. The underhanded tactics of bidding for workers. How can an association bid and win 6 worker auctions in 1 24 hour period. I am not talking bidding for the same worker for extended time. The only way this can be done is if a high position association places such a high price that others can't compete with just so they can win it and dismiss it and cheat other associations out of the worker. I know this has been going on for years but this round on the server i am playing there are 3 high profile associations with obviously very deep pockets putting hundreds of millions on workers and winning 6 in a row all different workers. So they are obviously dismissing workers as soon as they have won them and bidding and winning the next.


    So my solution to stop this is to put a restriction on how they can dismiss workers. For example if you bid and win a worker you can't dismiss this worker for 20 hours. This in my opinion will stop all the underhanded and devious associations from stopping smaller associations from getting the good workers.

    I was thinking about your idea of coupons but wondering how that would work.


    Would it be possible to win coupons in lottery to be able to add days to your sitter allowance but make it so they are only be able to be won in era 5. So if someone is trying to misuse accounts etc you have your 15 days which would only allow someone to sit until end of era 2. Genuine players would find a way for the 15 days to last them 4 weeks before they can win a couple to extend. This also would have to have a limit of say 10 max coupons per account.


    Or could someone collecting your bonuses win a coupon allowing them access to a function similar to a sitter one. For example If your balance is in the red on the widget and no one is allowed to collect a bonus then they can click on it watch a video and gain say 10 mins sitter access to enable them to service trains and sort your bank out and allocate your rp .


    Also

    One of the main problems for anyone is the bank hitting its limit and the RP points being full. These can fill even before the 12 hours are up that a sitter can help.


    Maybe introduce a function where if your bank hits its limit you don't lose the cash and its put into a reserve until you can come online and can then upgrade your bank and collected your funds from the reserve.


    Could there be an option that allows an associations members to press a button when they see your are in the red with your balance so it transfers it to the reserve.

    Oh this could actually be a use for an association bank like safety deposit boxes if that makes sense. The member could deposit your excess funds in the association bank but no one else can touch it only you are able to withdraw it.

    I was really disappointed with the new changes made to sitters. The introduction of a 15 day limit per round on express server and 30 day limit on normal servers.

    The reason i am told is to limit account misuse of someone creating an avatar and leaving the game and the sitter could then control the account through to end game. Now i understand this completely but this is limiting loyal players who have been playing since the start of the game and penalising them for having the audacity to work 12 hour shifts. tut


    Now i also think that the new changes is encouraging account login sharing and will not stop cheaters. For example you could just get a friend to sign up who doesnt want to play and he gives you his login details and you take control of the account for the rest of the game thus bypassing the 15 limit anyway.


    So my suggestion is to create a way to place something on the account that counts how many times you login in a week. You have to actually login with your account at least 4 times a week otherwise the account is locked and even sitters won't be able to sit until you have logged in and unlocked it. This will weed out any abandoned accounts and stop anyone misusing the sitter function.


    Or another suggestion similar to the first would be to have the sitter function with password. When you set your sitter you set a password for that sitter to use. This password has to be changed at least once a week. If after a week the account holder hasn't logged in to set a new password for the sitter then the sitter function is disabled until the account holder logs in and if after 3 weeks still no login then the account is locked until next round unless the account holder contacts RN to unlock it.


    This will in my opinion still help genuine players get the help that is needed and also stop misuse of abandoned accounts.


    I'm sure others will have the same problems and have other suggestions so lets see if a solution can be found.:thumbsup:
