3 Questions about Home Tycoon

 

1.Can you meet up with other people in Home Tycoon? Ive been to the most popular cities and have never seen another avatar in any city.

 

2.Can you still not use locomotion or anything in your inventory in Home Tycoon?

 

3.Is there any way to chill in a city in Tycoon without having all the annoying pop ups on your screen? Like If I want to just walk around, do I have to have that waive to rejoin tycoon popup on screen at all times?

Workers now take 10 minutes to regenerate again ... bad move. Who do they thing they are ? Hostess Bakers ??? get to work, you bums.

 

The TransUtopian Greenspace's additional heighth has messed up my skyline ...  not to mention that since the Mopes in that building don't eat any red meat, and have iron poor blood, it takes them 8 hours and 45 minutes to regenerate full revenue. Come up with the Cabbage faster, you vegan vagrants.

 

Moving without  deleting, is very cool. thank you.

 

They seem to have changed the algorthms for Happiness, Crime, and maybe Pollution. Good to see a Police Station is not now needed on every block.  I know ... ya can't find a Donut, when you need one. :smileyhappy:

 

The Custom GS 828 with the Flames is very cool, but I will not spend 85 Coins for one (u will not , Lil) ( no, Lil, do not lust for the black gs w/flames, NO)

 

I didn't get the  AA Guns. and Fire Control Radar remote M2's, but I can wait

 

Oh, when in my car, did I always throw my arms up in the air when doing a jump? Or is this also something new ? I've turned the sound up, and cannot hear myself scream ... but I can wait for that feature also.

This is even after Novus-Cooldown said, "We've also permanently reduced the Worker regeneration time from 10 minutes to 5 minutes, and we're already hard at work on the next game update with plenty of content on the way. Let us know what you think!"

 

Even with my golden briefcase that is supposed to reduce the time required, it's taking me 7m37s to regenerate one worker. Slightly disappointed.

I was just about to post on the worker regeneration rate being jacked up again. This has seriously turned me off from the game. Far too many other "Sim City" type building games out there where you don't have to wait that long for what is essentially 'energy' to build things.
