Maybe BWILSON, but the beginning of the game really hasn't changed much with the new additions
avatar
if you see this, pm it to me... thanks
avatar
is vyrnn around? someone deleted my post that had all your discord information in it
avatar
when you have been playing for a long time, small additions are pretty easy to figure out. But if you are brand new and you are introduced to everything all at once with almost no guidance, it's very confusing
avatar
new players enter the game with a huge learning curve and will most likely be deterred
avatar
I think the bigger concern has been in the confusion and complication of all the new updates

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
avatar
@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?
avatar
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.
