thanks, I'll have a look

Suggestions and ideas / More than one team in a room
« on: March 24, 2017, 04:45:05 PM »
Just a suggestion about tweaking this mechanic a touch.

I completely understand that in an office, in real life, there can be a negative effect of more than one team in a room together as they can distract each other with their different tasks, etc, but I don't see why they are getting upset when there is more than one team in a recreational room like a break room or a canteen. In every organisation I've ever worked in, it's pretty cool to speak to people in other teams over lunch, find out what they're up to, make new friends, that sort of thing.

I guess my suggestion is this: remove the negative modifier for more than one team from all rooms except offices.

General Discussion / Specifying room usage?

I am aware of how to limit certain rooms to certain teams, but is there a way of limiting certain rooms to certain uses?

In my current game (Release 8) I have built a canteen with a kitchen, and on the other side of the building I have a couple of meeting rooms. The canteen has three serving plates, and enough tables and chairs, right next to the serving plates, for 50 or 60 people. But my staff always walk right past the canteen tables and walk to the other end of the building to eat in the meeting rooms.

Can I designate the room I've designed as a meeting room as a meeting room, and the canteen room as a canteen?

It does say the team, as well as what their job was, why they left, and other information. It should have a popup in the top left when someone retires and if you click on that it'll take you to the window. I'm not sure how to get there otherwise though, haven't really experimented with that I guess

Is that something in build 9? Because I just tried it in build 8 and got no joy. I'm probably doing something wrong.

Just a thought, I don't have a leader in every team yet, so when one of my 50 employees has retired, I can't work out what team she's gone from. Perhaps a column on the insurance screen for the retirees with the team they were working for when they retired?

I don't really see an issue with this, as it will be a one time question, use 5 minutes to google it and you're done and enjoy the time on the forums. I can't decide for Khornel (which is the owner)

Sure thing. No worries. It was just an idea. It was a little frustrating when I first posted, but I guess I'm here now! Thanks for your help.

This was caused by C# using the unstable quicksort algorithm for in-place sorting. I've forced it to be stable, so items with the same value will maintain their previous order, instead of being jumbled.

You are a complete and utter hero. Just cosmetic, but will definitely help me out. Thanks so much!

Not at all. It's a anti-bot  feature, so we don't get spammed with bots.

I'm aware of that. I just mean that the *question itself* was too hard for a newbie in the game who just wants to come along and get involved, and that other options are available. Your forum, though. Just a suggestion

I literally have no idea how many stories I can build in the game. I've only had it a day or two and haven't got that far. I had to google to get the answer in order to join the forum. Can I suggest a list of answers to those questions somewhere, or not have questions that are so niche as to exclude new players? I really want to be involved in the community, but it was 10 minutes wasted in order even to register.

On the staff screen, if I currently click the column header, to sort by team, it sorts into teams (Core/Core 2/Marketing etc) perfectly well, but I have a very small quality of life suggestion that might be of use.

If you have a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and sort by one column, and then another, it remembers the first choice and sorts within your second choice, by your first choice. I'm perhaps not being clear:

At the moment, if you sort by team, within the team the members are ordered alphabetically by name. It would be useful, for instance, if we could change the ordering within the team if we sorted first by Assigned Job and then by Team, so that we'd have all the programmers in Core 2 together, all the designers in Core 1 together, etc, it would assist.

With small teams it's not so big a deal, but as things get bigger, getting to choose primary AND secondary sort order would be magnificent.
