I think people worrying about "griefing" or adding more PvP elements to this game should go out and play some games against other people, instead of sticking to Solitaire or Civ on warlord difficulty :p Games are always more fun when played with other people: admittedly some allow you to upset new p...

Doesn't seem to have fixed this problem, I can see the correct AEG.palaceLimits value in the script, but it's still giving me a ? for the time until the population cap is reached. (Same thing if I change to resource limits.) The numbers for resources are showing correctly, it's just the palace for s...

I've just built a level 20 Palace and it's not getting the maximum capacity/time for growing new workers for some reason (upgrading the wheat field). Something change there?

This is why NO could use some kind of mini-API, where all this kind of data is written to XML files or something and thus have the wiki auto-update, wouldn't be hard to do :p

There's a difference between whining about losing a few hours of brick production because the change happened overnight, and voicing an opinion that the whole warehouse situation needs looking at from the ground-up. What's the purpose in the warehouse now? Is it just a time-buffer to stop rapid expa...

It's a browser-thing, but I don't see why an enter key event can't be captured and have the form submitted :)

Heh, at the end of the day you have to realise that a lot of gamers want one thing, the others want another thing, and the developer probably wants something else entirely. Opinions clash and we yell a lot but I don't think Reed cries himself to sleep every night :) Buuut having said that I'd be rea...

It's been suggested off-hand a bit :)

But it's arguably a bit too automated, taking control out of people's hands, plus it looks to me like a good day's worth of hard-core coding to do.

I'd say it depended more on when you want to.

I think I did it with 16/12/11 and it took a couple of weeks of stockpiling but it was awesome when I set up that 4th :)

I would say that if you're waiting until 16/16/16 or more then you're wasting time...

No. No. No. Depends on your city size and how you manage it. Suppose your city is running at -100 bread deficit without the blessing, and +0 with it. You're saving 4800 bread by activating the blessing, which corresponds to, what, 480 luxury goods? (During which time you could quite easily make a lo...

Ouch! What a painful change. Yeah it means everything goes orange, but, I think this is actually a good long-term change for the warehouse. I mean, if we must have a building to storing stuff (rather than them being stored in the manufacturing buildings a la CotN) this is how it should be, and I gu...

Not a bad haul, but in one go,
You helped defeat the bandit outposts in Ratep! You've been awarded 10152 [bread] , 1523 [sandals] , 1523 [sculpture] , 1523 [cosmetics] , 1523 [perfume] , 1523 [jewelry] at Grark!

That's what happens when you do a large one solo :p

Good Lord, the amount of vitriol being spewed is amazing. Did I take a wrong turn and end up on the WoW forums? This thread is 95% constructive and 5% vitriolic, so, er, yes, maybe you were looking at the Wow forums. :p Decay of goods would be better, but it's already been suggested a billion times...

they take the easiest solution (ie equal warehouse and palace levels)

But what is this a solution to?

The way I see it the warehouse is a pointless waste of building spot, there could be something more useful in that spot (e.g. educated workers) to spice up the game rather than slowing it down.

Christ, could at least cut down the warehouse construction times a lot, you're talking about ~2 days for the last bunch of levels. What's the point in this, why does this slow trading game need slowing down further? Warehouses are time sinks, not resource sinks, I don't see the point :confused: Woul...

how about making this info public in the game of when someone joins? so that he knows who he can contact if there are problems.
