As far as I know Roller Coaster Tycoon is an offline game, so you dont have to worry about other players. When you have thousands of people on a server things tend to evolve. But offline mode will always be there if you just want a casual city builder without all of the other stuff

@RoboPro - all of the extra 'complication', for instance the mention of building costs, is only present in colonies that are in 'Online' mode. When the game is played offline, it is no different before. Offline mode is there for people who like the more simple and casual play. For online, extra steps have to be taken to keep everything in balance for all players

i dont know robpro. bast hasn´t been clear on that.
avatar
the fine line between a game being challenging and just being a pain in the ass
avatar
this is the point I have been trying to get across for awhile
avatar
For instance, I have been playing rollercoaster tycoon recently on my tablet... That game was a massive success and still is popular after what, 20 years? Because it is relatively simple. If we had to pay to pressure wash the mould off the merry-go-rounds roof I'm not sure it would have lasted
avatar
Does this game want to be for mass market, or a complex niche game to appeal to the super kean
avatar
well we joined this game months ago (well I did, a couple of months ago...) Some of the changes now, I wonder if I would have carried on playing had these been there when I started. Did I read somewhere that downloads/player count has decreased? Is that a coincidence?

building on a tiny colony is fun you have to keep deleting buildings to make space for new things. http://imgur.com/a/AzBrQ

Sure thing.
avatar
Thanks patch. Appreciate it.
avatar
Nothing is blocked. Like i make sure that every building is touching a road. Well minus like terraforming and solar panels.

Here's the thread if you want to add a "me too" about the issue: http://forum.ape-apps.com/showthread.php?tid=3555

Make sure their drop off point isn't blocked in, but there is also an issue with some miners/harvesters.
avatar
Is something broken that im not seeing? My havesters will sit next to a mine and it says harvesting but they arent. So i move them and click harvest and still nothing.
avatar
Like which updates specifically?
avatar
by making the updates that make the game more challenging not even show up in the early game
avatar
And how could a new player get a better handle on what is going on?
avatar
i understand the game and i think its pretty easy, im talking from the point of view of a new player that had no idea what was going on
avatar
It's easy to say this is bs because I don't like it.
