Ok, Mickey. I get your reason for changing the fields, and stuff around, but it's too much. I've been buying fields, and mines and wells as often as I can. But now I'm at 47.90 geos a day! That's 1/12 of what I used to make before you changed them! If I had just started the game, I could get this. But now, here I am, played for months, and weeks, since the reset, and I'm can't get farther than this? You're driving the game into the ground.
Maybe you can reinstitute these "features" later, but give us a month, or something, to get up to maximum wells, so we can actually have money coming in! As it is, I can't even afford a well without collecting jewels every day.
Please, lower the time limit, or change the wells to 5x longer, instead.

Not necessarily, as the ending time is random within a range. However, I really don't want to give anything else to new players, as that becomes more encouragement for people to create multiple accounts.

well, im not saying free mines, you'd still have to pay for em.

The problem stays that people would just create a dozen multiple accounts... we will have to wait till the system works more secure.
The new jewel hunt way is kinda fun really...i had enough of those dull cities :cool:

2 wells, 2 mines and a field only equals 47 goes. My only hope is to jewel hunt tons of money and use the bank.

Mickey I petition you not to change the payout/duration or the current formula for resources but to lift the time limits entirely. I propose a complete lift of any time restrictions to build resources (limited only by the space available for the wells/mines/fields). This would reward those players who prudently invest in the world bank.



Despite an exponential increase in my income from interest through the bank, I have watched my daily decrease by 50%. This is unacceptable.

Yeah, but how much is it bringing in daily? Probably less than five geos! :mad:

Oil Income (4 wells)
361.00 barrels per day = 36.10 Geos per day.

Cotton Income (4 plantations)
159.00 pounds per day = 23.85 Geos per day.

its ridiculous! I spend 50 geos every 36 hours and after 4 of such "investments" I still dont get enough back to cover one of these expenses!!!

This is a waste of good will and time!!!

Mickey, what are the min and max of production and duration for wells, fields, and mines? because right now my mine is making about 4 times my well and field combined!

Diamond Mines will earn the smallest total, but will give it to you in the shortest amount of time (less than a week).

Oil Wells will earn a slightly larger total, but it will be spread out over a few weeks to a month.

Cotton Fields will typically earn the most, but it will be spread out over a couple months.

The bare minimum for any of them is around 60 Geos. The max is well over 600 Geos for each of them.

7 Wells
877 barrels per day = 87.70 Geos per day

7 Fields
385 pounds per day = 57.75 Geos per day

4 Mines
1,445 carats per day = 216.75 Geos per day

Total income = 393.41 Geos per day (including interest)

I think this is OK so have no complaints about the system :) .... Yet

No complaints here.. (but I didn't exist in the old system)

Oil Income (4)
505.00 barrels per day = 50.50 Geos per day.
Cotton Income (3)
267.00 pounds per day = 40.05 Geos per day.
Diamond Income (4)
959.00 carats per day = 143.85 Geos per day.
