Under rating threshold (show) you should totally be able to skip/speed up the explosions, fine at first but later it's just a drag. :/

Under rating threshold (show) Needs some way to locate those tiny pieces that disappear into the camp, never to be seen again. Especially when they're the only ones left. Like a compass pointing to the nearest piece.

Under rating threshold (show) $31 seems a bit high for an old boot, but if it can withstand a nuclear blast I think it's not that bad of a deal.

Under rating threshold (show) It would be nice though if there was some way to turn off the bar that pops up before each day that tells me to buy explosives. After 25 days, I KIND OF understand what I'm doing here... :/

Under rating threshold (show) It's really, really obnoxious that failure to mine gradually eliminates your town growth, and even more annoying that the game doesn't tell you this at all.

Under rating threshold (show) Few tips to get the last achievement: add taverns on all empty spots on the map. and the big thing is that your population increase/day decreases with each day that you DON'T mine. it doesn't matter how much. as long as you do. so you can just use one little bomb a day and the people will be happy. Also hardware stores make the tents into larger houses, which increases the pop of each house. Hope this helps!

Under rating threshold (show) kinda fun but i have a few problems. I payed 20,000 for a surveyors office and it burns the records of where it found gold the day before, and without fail always goes to the other side of the map to find gold instead of doing the logical thing and finding gold close by the offices. no record of whether or not a hole in the ground has gold or if I mined it out already also a lapse in logic, because I'm pretty sure actual mining companies would keep records of that...

Under rating threshold (show) Ore needs to bounce off the edges of the map or, perhaps, get automatically collected if it does. Making it unreachable in trees is fine, though, since that gives the player further incentive to deforest the maps.

Developer response from thepodge

The ore does bounce off the edges of the maps! It only bounces in to neighbouring plots (which you can buy)

Under rating threshold (show) I really like the originality of this game, but there are a few things I think would be nice for the future. Instead of the surveyors office putting up a sign each day, perhaps it could be upgraded to permanently mark the map with colors for various estimated gold amounts. Also it seems like such a waste to burn an explosive slot just to clear out some trees. I'd be willing to pay extra for a large bomb that has an effect over a 2x2 or 3x3 area.

Under rating threshold (show) I think that the surveyor building should only give you "GOLD" markers where your HQ is. It's quite annoying when I go into placing explosives and it takes me to the far right plot when my HQ is in the far left plot, as I won't be going to place explosives there, and I also have to then scroll all the way back to the left.
