On the developments of the buildings
« on: March 07, 2010, 12:10:31 AM »

What is better:
1 - Evolving all buildings to level 1 or
2 - Progressing only one to level 3?

What problems is it to make the first choice?

Excuse my English, is that I'm using a translator online =/

As far I know for all resource mines it should be better to build one by one to level 5,
then extend all by 1 level.

Your English (or the translator's) is good :)

Yes, as pankleks mentioned it is better to build one crystal field to level 5 than all fields to 1 and then all to level 2 etc.

Please follow the in-game guide (in messages: "Start my in-game training guide!"), it will tell you how to upgrade most efficiently

I discovered this upon trial and error, and perhaps a note of it should me made as a warning when attempting it,
but canceling a build operation does not return all the resources used in construction, only a percentage.

Yes, good catch CrimsonX. It is by design. Say you started building something and you decided to abandon it - you will always waste some resources and time on it...

Hi,

I would like to thank you for help, I'm having great results after it evolves to level 5! much better than moving all at once! not to mention that I'm following the guide of missions is very good!

It's all going well and progressing now.

Thanks for the help, guys! :)

Bye!

I understand that it is by design. Different games make this mechanic work differently.
As I said though, perhaps a "Note: Canceling a Build operation will only yield you 90% of the resources required for the build"
or whatever that percentage might be could be added to the Actions tab on the City screen.

It's mainly to avoid hiding resources in building queue (or at least make it less profitable)

We will add proper info in "Do you wish to cancel this building?" window.
