Support / Why don't permanent couriors work for their full hours?
« on: April 01, 2019, 07:29:44 PM »
When I hire a temporary courier, they work for a full four house, but when I hire a permanent one, they only take one batch of boxes, then, when they are loaded, immediately leave. Why is this? Is it a bug? Is this even the most profitable way to do this (I have a printing business)?

Currently, getting a building plot costs about the same weather rural, urban, or suburban: $50,000. This is unrealistic, as rural locations often cost far less and urban locations often cost far more. I'm not sure of the exact costs, but many rural locations I have seen in deserts cost less than $10,000 for acres of land.

To be balanced, there should be advantages and disadvantages for different locations. More urbanised locations, for example, should be more expensive for land use, but less expensive for internet, with much faster internet available. They should also have more hiring options than rural locations. Individual employees may or may not be willing to move.

To reduce cost, it may also be useful for one to provide their own utilities if needed. For example, one could have solar panels and wind turbines which would provide a fixed amount of power for some upfront cost and a small amount of maintainence, useful in rural areas with low utility availability or for reducing long-term cost. If insufficient power was available, things would stop working. Water wells for tempurate environments and rain capture barrels for deserts could perhaps be used for water, although rain barrels wouldn't be super effective, so buying water in the desert may make more sense if water lines were available.

Rural internet is sometimes barely available, or only available in extremely slow speeds. For this reason, an interesting feature in-game would be the ability for one to build their own internet lines, for a high up-front expense, to an ISP. If different ISPs were implemented, changing them could get very expensive due to needing either a new line, or needing to move/expand the existing one. For more internet to be available, new lines would need to be made. Higher-capacity lines would be available over time.

Other weird self-sufficiency options would be good too, like the ability to train employees for tasks like IT and in rural locations, maybe even the ability to farm. This isn't necessary for the core idea though; it is just an expansion on it.

I may update this later to better flesh this idea out, but for now, I must do another task.

Support / The game killed my graphics card, and is virtually unusable
« on: August 16, 2015, 05:54:05 PM »
Hello. When I start the game, my operating system updates a frame ohhhh..... about every minute (I am not exaggerating either). In all stages of the game except player creation, all 3d graphics fail, leaving the screen in a glitchy mess. One time I got my screen to be unglitched just enough for me to build a room with a table, but after that I couldn't coordinate enough to build a computer. This is probably a compatibility problem with my graphics card. One other helpful note: when I used a OSX 10.7 (I was using 10.6 before) the start menu had a red gradient, and sometimes black, instead of a mess of different colored pixels that made no sense. It also ran slower.

Could anyone help me fix this graphics glitch. I have turned all the graphics options on either off or minimum, and it still doasn't work, so it is probably hard-wired. Thanks!
