Complaint? I made my suggestions as just that, suggestions. Ways to improve. Public Beta is not just to find and fix bugs, it's to improve the game play as well. I am explaining why queues are an improvement and not just some cool interface idea. I believe the original poster had the same intention....

I have just started but already questioning my ability to maintain the time commitment needed to do this. I don't play WOW or EverQuest or Eve, etc. for the same reason. Can't devote myself to come back every 20 minutes to start next site upgrade or assign next labor point. For that reason all of th...

Sorry. Didn't think to use the search function before posting. Realize this is a known IE issue (I have IE 8 Beta 2). But I did learn that the scroll icon is supposed to flash when a response comes in. Is that only if you are logged in when it arrives (my icon was not flashing when I logged back in ...

Can't get scroll message

I sent a scroll message last night (when it was still version 0.36. Tonight (version 0.37) my scroll list shows a response but when I click on it to read it, the drop down appears and I get the delete and respond buttons, but the cycling squares that indicate the message content is being downloaded ...

A reliable trading partner could quickly change this, but right now there are more laborers in wheat than anything else - so that is where the bonus goes based on simple math (2% of 10 is more than 2% of 5). If I can guarantee continued high values for leather though...... then the math changes. At ...

I even set a cooking timer to the next expected arrival, build completion, or opportunity to sell, etc. In between I do other stuff or surf this forum. :)

trading is good

someone hopefully needs your luxury item. I used the exchange to see that leather was being offered at 14 bread per -- fantastic price when you consider total labor involved (between wheat and bakery labor - bread is still cheaper to make because of the higher production per labor unit, but not on a...

So what does it all mean?

Chariots are the most expensive to build, but its hard to determine their real impact in combat from all of this. At one point I figure it looks like they are hard to kill, and in the next battle they drop like flies. The random factor appears to be pretty high. Wondering if anyone has got the impre...

Personally I prefer the downloads. I have a gaming machine and a laptop. While the laptop is not as good for FPS type games (its ok, but not great), it is perfect for COTN and similar games. I love the auto installs, auto updates, not worrying about losing/damaging my CD or my CD key, etc. Boxes jus...
