I have made some, but probably won't make any more; I'll just buy them. The PP cost is enormous.

i started upgrading my city hall towards lvl 3 cause i had spare stuff, but im now required to provide 450 wood panneling, which is a huge expence on PP

I hadn't even noticed that part of the requirement -- the rest was off-putting enough. But yes, it is a great PP expense.

I make them. Workers in all houses, trying my best to give them what they need to produce pp, and I afford to spend any amount to make what I want. Have over 30.000 pp, and every night my mills and farm are set to produce the longest and most expensive things that my level alow.

I currently don't need any, but will probably will buy them when I do, until I have more PPs than I can use on other things.

im sinking all my extra PP into bricks and thus avoiding to pay for em:)
but considering the fact that each weekly event brings a decent amount of PP i might reconsider and sink some in panneling, just to see that damn city hall finished,

Not many, just 664, but they do double shifts :D

But...I have all my mills at level 3, that helps...I have my farm at level 3, except 3 of them, and that helps...The production costs are lower :)
But what I believe helps even more is that I am around 12 hours a day everyday on line :P

upgraded factories doesnt help PP wise, even if they require less PP per unit, the requirement is stil higher then a L2 or L1, only helps producing more for less.
i have no problem keeping all the markets stocked :) and i got 668 workers also,

but being online that much time does help :)

I'm getting to the stage where I'm going to run out of power soon, going to upgrade the farms to L3, but will have to wait til I get to L16 before building anything new, still need 6000 EP

If you have some money, put some decoration, even if you don`t need them, they give you EPs, or start some other buildings without finishing, also good EP giver. This way you will be 16 level sooner :)

I'm in a pickle myself, only have 4 radio tower left, all other decorations are used. if i build another power plant i'll have to use up alot of power on commercial buildings to offset the -250 mood...

got to L16, but holding off building anything new ATM as I'm saving up CCs. Did build another bakery as I was using rolls quicker than I could bake them :)
Next plan is to upgrade farms to L3

i manage to keep all my workers fed with 6 L2 farms, and upgrading them to L3 its quite expencive
thinking of expanding first

I've only got 3 farms, so make sense to make them L3 :)

I think one strategy in the game may well turn out to be the high production of PP's then sales in the market to make up for so few Capitalists.
For me at least this has worked very well as I have accumulated 135000 PP's in my own private game using this strategy.

Just a thought shared.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Pirate, shhhhhhhhh...... if everybody will follow your strategy, then who`s gonna buy our stuff on market? :cool:
And OMG, I was thinking I`m doing well with near 30000 PP, you have 135000??? :eek:

Its really ok as I buy stuff everyday the same as many others so it will still work also as the game grows there will be a steady demand from new players.

As for the PP I may use some of my keys to change a few back just to get a better balance.;);)

Yeah, I do the same, sell something, buy something else, what`s killing me is that we don`t have more slots on market.

By all means feel free to add this to the suggestions area and I will be happy to include it in my weekly report to our Dev's/;);)

Well...I won`t do that, I have some experience with the market and I know at first sight having, let`s say, 10 slots sounds great, but then, instead of having 200 offers for the same product, will be 1000 and thats not a good thing for people with less time to play.
Every action has a reaction, if every player has 10 slots, then in 2 min what looked like a great offer will end on 20 page, and I`ll stop now, cause I have the feeling I don`t need to explain how the free market works, you know better :)

But ofcourse, I would still love to have 10 maybe 20 slots for myself, and myself only :D

There speaks a true capitalist :)
well the 5th slot says "coming soon", so I expect will have get the chance to earn or buy it at some stage and the screen has 8 possible slot location so maybe more will become available later.
Having only 4 does introduce a lot of strategy though, it's amazing how much the market moves in even a couple of minutes.

I have almost no capitalists. I was doing very well till the market tanked. But at least it's tanked consistently, across all products.

I haven't yet used any keys, to swap back to capitalists. I have 25, I'm keeping them for a rainy day!

KCN, ten slots -- even just for you :) -- is at least five too many!

we need some event to eat up all our stocks, and then some, so people will buy all market until prices go up again, else its gona doom all products to 1$ :)
