  1. graphic issue iMac

    i get this on my mac too, all the time, back over a year to previous earlier versions. Black squares where dead nuggets lie. You can teleport them away and dump them on high into lakes, then the black squares shrink away. I like to feed the dead to the whales.
  2. Modernization

    Agreed, too many new house builds popping up everywhere draining all the resources, I want to be able to control new build activity. And the new patch - into modern era, there's a fire every minute I have to now spend the entire time looking for clouds and smoke plumes to shove a raincloud over them or lose vast areas of the city in flames - and I have quite a lot of fire stations spread around - I d have even more if i could stop the auto-house building using up all my cement and glass.
  3. Possible bug

    yep i get this as well
  4. Gift wrapped parcels

    they are christmas decoration
  5. You should be fine with 250 - 300 pop, get the town hall to leave 20 unassigned for general labour and breeding. (that's the right hand number using the green +5 button!)
  6. When you activate shifts it will auto-fill all your workplaces with nightshifts and use up a big chunk of your spare population - population that will no longer be available for general labouring duties such as fetching/carrying and procreating. In town hall you need to set a good chunk of your nuggs NOT to be auto-assigned, eg: 15 - 25 in order to keep industry and birth rate going. If you don't have enough spare population for this, wait till you have bigger numbers before activating the shift system.
  7. mammoth gathering

    I sent a save file from the same game a few days back, for a more general issue playing on iMac. Here's the link: https://www.dropbox.com/preview/Public/Sprool3.zip?role=personal
  8. Planet Sizes?

    difference of opinion - the tiny planet thing i find quite appealing, it adds a chinzy character to the game.
  9. Batteries

    Do batteries have to be placed near settlements or near power stations to be effective? Is there a power range of influence like there is for engineers huts for example?
  10. Non-Steam token?

    ok thanks Mirror
  11. Non-Steam token?

    I have pre-steam version, wanting to join in with the Steam forum but cannot participate as Steam sees I have not purchased it via their platform. Is there a token or key code I can use to activate it on Steam platform?
  12. mammoth gathering

    During my colonisation of the planet I found all the remaining mammoths clustered on a lake shore, none other to be found on the surface. Easy pickings for the hunters as none of these roam any more. Unless they are herding together for protection?
  13. iMac texture issues

    Some graphic texture issues playing on 5k iMac at 1920 res (any larger and frame rate is too poor). Most in menu items, 4th one i get black square whenever theres a dead nugget lying on the surface. dev tree lines gone - they were there when save game file was first loaded, then on 3rd or 4th access they disappeared.
  14. nuggets suiciding in lake

    I had a criminal prowling about at the bottom of one of the lakes, he had the little handcuff icon next to him, probably lying low while the police search was out to collar him.
  15. power outage?

    I'm on a mac so the save game path is a bit more complex, I compressed the save game file as a zip - its 5.8meg which is too large to attach here (3.9Mb limit ) Heres the zip file link on Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r47gdcyqygn8um1/Sprool3.zip?dl=0 [edit]: Looking back, I was quite low on gas mines, maybe the supply had been exhausted, but I'm pretty sure the gas mines stopped production due to water shortage, though this was during the warm months with plenty in the reservoirs
