It was nice dropping into my city to see 30 workers (I had zero the night before), then getting another 30 from that mysterious phone call!

Actually.. any Home Tycoon space whether it be my own or someone elses I visited prior to the update has always been "Home Tycoon" under my Recently Visited tab and when visiting that space it always linked me back to the train station. Now under my Recently Visited tab I'm getting the regular "Home Tycoon" space (which is the train station) and my own city which has that unique ID number which identifies it as my own city.

I tried to favorite my own city while I was in my city prior to the update and it denied me the ability to do so, similar to how you can't add X7 to your favorites.

Also, my city is still completely wiped/broken. It's in a permanent pre-tutorial state, but the tutorial cannot be accessed. The money, workers, citizens, and coin fields are all vacant. When I go to the Planner Mode, only Activity (Test Drive) is available . When I visit the Mayor's Desk, only Planner Mode, Visit Other Cities, and Go to Train Station are available.

 

I lost at least 40 hours of play time on my city. Can it be restored?


E-mail us at info@hellfiregames.com with your PSN ID and region (US or EU) and we'll investigate. Your E3 phone call not triggering is probably due to your city's pre-tutorial state.

That's interesting. The cities I visited would always show up as unique instances corresponding to their user numbers on the Recently Visited tab. I added my city to favorites the first day Home Tycoon was available.

My PSN ID is beside every post I make (same with everyone else on this forum since it requires a PSN login).

 

It's a US account.

 

Thank you.

After collecting some revenue last night on a few of my commercial buildings I've come back to my city to find it hasn't regenerated at all...

Also, I bought the golden suitcase a few weeks ago and the countdown was 2 minutes for a worker. Now with your fix it is up to 3 minutes and 50 seconds.. is that right???

Also music seems to cut out after a few minutes.. the rest of the sound is available though.

Your buildings should regenerate revenue once you collect from them... make sure your stats are positive (happiness, growth, etc.) to ensure that your employed citizens are productive. You may also need to wait 30 seconds or so before leaving your city after collecting revenue just to be safe.

 

The Gold Briefcase discount was boosted to 50% faster regen time while the Worker regen fix was under submission as a courtesy to the players who owned that item. Now that worker regen is working as designed and the rate has been permanently lowered from 10 to 5 minutes, the Gold Briefcase discount has been restored to the correct 25% rate.

 

The music cutoff was a feature we added so players wouldn't have to hear the same song looped forever when they're idle, though we're changing that in a future update so the songs will crossfade into each other. Sorry if it seems a little weird. Smiley Happy
