Money and saving

#1 2017-10-07 21:23:14
Using IOS version 0.45

Having issues where the auto save is causing the game to crash during the save and ends up having to restart but loosing your progress.

Another issue is I can’t seem to make enough money, I’ve got over 20 gold mints and various other items but can’t make more than 10,000 before tax collection. Not enough and keep getting accrued or hungry people.

Also compared to the android version selling items you get a good amount of money such as aluminium for 000’s but on the iOS you get 250-300 per 100.

Any ideas what’s going on?

Well as for the selling prices, your game is probably in offline mode and using the game-default pricing, whereas an online-mode game gets its pricing from the GBT which is generally a lot higher. Just so to the statistics screen and switch your colony to online.

As for the saving, try turning off compression and see if that helps.

As for the gold mints, they are not very good for making $$$ long term, banks are best.

banks lol bank = 10 gold per round and round is slow mint = 14 gold per round and round is fast .
my advice is be online and sell a few 100 al for starter money once your producing enough steel and start wool sell that
then go to cloth .
Tring to rely on banks or mints bites . 100 mints and you will make extra cash but so slow mite as well not even be there . selling is the only realistic way of making tons of coins.
ps even off line mode you can just have to get arts then .

On iOS is hard to get your game saved. Since I started playing after your colony is medium size 20k+ colonists the game starts taking long time to save or crashes when doing it. Every update I tried different methods, for 0.45 I just disabled EVERYTHING and still losing progress sometimes. That’s why I moved to windows, it just saves the same file in seconds not minutes. Yesterday I was playing a new ice world and lost about 2h of progress bc it crashed at saving.
Main colony: Whiterock

Playing since: 0.38
