    Default Resource changes

    Some changes:

    - Jewel rate lowered to 1.21 (from 2.21)

    - You must be zoomed approx twice as close when searching for jewels, making them slightly harder to find.

    - All other resources will now last half as long as before, but pay out twice as much. Specifically:
    - - Diamonds will last around 4-6 days, earning 60-600 Geos
    - - Oil will last a couple weeks to a month, earning slightly more.
    - - Cotton will last 1-2 months (instead of 2-4) and earn the most total money (but least per day).

    why lower the jewel rate? I think 1.21 is not enough benefit for searching at least 15min...

    I can find a jewel in a couple minutes, easy. Find the clue to where you're jewel is then just download a KML. KMZ file of the place and you should find the Jewel almost instantly.

    and once you have downloaded all of the KMZs, it goes even faster still

    Use place marks and you will be at the next jewel in a split second.

    Its the fastest way I have found. 11 minutes I collect 50 jewels and thats playing around while doing it. Who needs scripts when this works just fine.

    ive sat here for almost a week just collecting jewels so i can catch up to the big guys and you change it.. this stinks......i never see you change any thing that hurts the big guys... collecting jewels is not easy...i got a pm asking how i got so much geos lately.. i told them just by jewel hunting...i guess it came easy to me after awhile..

    That could be his point...
    New, the Unofficial Site of GEwar. A trashtalk forum for all players. Check it out:

    Now with GAMES, so even if you can't be the best at GEWar, maybe you can set some highscores.

    Thanks for listening to the masses, Mickey

    I think that 5 times more income lasting 5 times less time was too short (mines lasting 2 days was bad) but the last way was too slow to grow income. This way is the good compromise we've been asking for.

    Unhappy Why ?

    Why should i make more resources before the reset come ?
    Why should search jewels for loose cash before reset ?
    Why should spend more time before reset ?

    Changes for oil,diamonds and cotton are ok, but not for jewels. Couldnt spend all my time for jewel hunting, it doesn┤t make sense before reset. Waste of time.

    See you after resetting.
