Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / $66 megabucks, and officially stalled on Moon

The devs aren’t going to update the moon as long as people keep on buying gold. Why would they? They made the game for one reason, and one reason only: To manipulate players into giving them as much money as they can get. If people keep throwing 100’s of dollars at them like the O.P. apparently did, then they aren’t going to make one single change. The only time changes will come is when gold sales drop off.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Reaching 100 lasers

In case you were wondering how long it will take to get the ‘everything 100 unlock’, this has been my experience:

I started on the moon when it was first released on March 27th (TWO MONTHS AGO). By the time I reached 1.8 billion A.I., I pretty much lost interest in the game, so I decided to buy the 666 A.I. Oxygen Bar upgrade, and see how long it would take to reach 100 lasers.

I reached 98 lasers last Monday.
Just this morning, (Saturday), I bought my 99th laser. It cost 180 octillion.
The 100th laser will cost 271 octillion.
So with gains at roughly 30 octillion a day, it will take another 9 days to purchase the final laser, just for the ‘everything 100 unlock’…

Soooo, in case you were wondering, “How long will it take to get 100 lasers?”
My answer? 2 full months and 1 week…
Have fun :/

Goodbye AdCap. I might check back in 10 days to get the 100th laser. But, I probably won’t. I used to log in multiple times a day. Now I log in once or twice a week. You did nothing but destroy your revenue from plays in exchange for selling gold bars. Hope it works out for you… NOT!

Topic: Holyday City / 'Take A Break' 3x Multiplier working incorrectly

“After 3 hours break (offline), city employees will be more effective for 12 hours (all profits x3).”

This is the third time in a row that the ‘Activate’ button was green, I click the activate button, and the 3x multiplier didn’t work.

I am obviously offline for more than 3 hours at a time (8 hours sleep, 8 hours work), yet this multiplier only works randomly, seemingly less than half the time.

Anybody else notice this not working correctly? With over a million plays, I’m surprised that no one else has brought this up yet.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Update: Less money?

Of course they nerfed the game with the latest update, notice all of the new ‘buy gold’ buttons? They weren’t happy with the ad revenue generated from 33 MILLION plays, so now they want people to constantly use their credit cards to keep the game flowing. Any other content updates (like the use of ‘moon bucks’) from the AdCap team are just going to be gimmicks to get people to ‘buy gold’.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: Developer / "How to Play" with Lead Designer Cody!

THREAD EDIT: How To Play: Spend Kreds.

Seriously. I’ve been on the moon since the moon was released, and I STILL can’t get the ‘Everything 100 Unlock’.

The game has turned into a grab for cash, and with over 32 million plays, I don’t blame them for making the move.

I, however, have lost all interest in the game. Progress is extremely slow, unless you dump 100’s of dollars into it.
And you dump money into the game, for what??? There is no purpose to the game, no final point, no goal, no conclusion…

No thanks.

Nothing near the quality of an Xbox or PS3 game :)

Topic: Holyday City / Post if you want buy 10 buy 100 feature back


Originally posted by wakthebrave:

i am clarifying im asking for people to post to add the buy exactly 10 or 100 feature back with a toggle


No, that feature sucked! Like the poster above you said, if you didn’t have enough money to buy exactly 10 or exactly 100, then you had to do a lot more clicking. Screw that.

It doesn’t make sense to buy exactly 100 anyways. By the time you get a business to the next multiple of 100, (say from 1,437 up to 1,500), there is something cheaper to buy.

I personally would prefer the developer spend time adding more gameplay than to spend time adding a stupid toggle that most players will never use.

Nah, I believe that microsoft is the main culprit creating viruses so that customers will buy anti-virus software, or get frustrated and buy new computers. I mean, it isn’t like something like that can be regulated, so why wouldn’t they? Large corporations are all about the money after all…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / No more AdCap for Chrome?

I have Google Chrome, and the game is still working fine for me. That’s because I turned off automatic updates on my computer. I don’t want a bunch of stupid ‘updates’ and downloads, I just want the internet.
Want AdCap to work in Chrome? Turn off automatic updates.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Why the sloppy math?

Yep, thanks for backing me up on how complicated it is. Like a person is supposed to remember all of that. I’ve got much better ways of spending my evenings and weekends. AdCap used to be simple, log in, get it done, go about your business. Now, it’s just… Eh. It’s spring, I have tons of money, I’d rather think about other things.

Point is, if the math isn’t polished, I probably won’t be playing this game anymore, at least until winter, and something better will most likely be out by then. Guess I’m pretty much saying “Bye AdCap. It’s been fun :)”

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Why the sloppy math?

On Earth, unlocks are achieved at easy to remember numbers, like 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, etc.. On the moon, unlocks are achieved at what feels like random numbers. I have to keep going back and forth between the unlocks screen and the game screen just to see which purchase would be best. It sucks. At least on Earth, I could keep all of my businesses at a round number, like 4,000 for instance. Then I could come back in the morning, and know immediately which business I was working on, because it would be 4,031 (for example). On the moon, the numbers just feel like chaos.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / When to buy AI Stock upgrades?

(Stock upgrades (i.e. 100 AI for +5 newspapers))

For this example, I’ll say that I have 999 bajillion AI. I just did a reset.
There is a stock upgrade for 5 newspapers, that cost a mere 100 AI.
If I buy the 5 newspapers at the very beginning, will the cost of newspapers be higher later than if I waited?
Or would it be better to wait until profits slow down, THEN buy the AI stock upgrade?

Why stop there? Why not a “buy x 1,000,000” setting? All’s the game does is count to 1,000 then change the word next to it before starting over at 1 again… There is no ending to this ‘game’.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Problem with angel bonus

Not knowing rather or not I’m going to have a bonus that I’ve worked so hard for sure is spoiling the game for me…

Example: before you go to bed or leave in the morning, you check the game, just to see that you are off by 1 or 2 percent of a good upgrade. You think, “Geez, I spent days clicking candy canes for that extra 3%, and I don’t even get to use it anymore.”

I might check back on this amateur game in a month or so (that’s how long it took them to end the Christmas event). As for now, I am done playing the game. A mathematical bug like this is a huge flaw for this type of game.

I’ll be playing Playstation.

Peace.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / candy cane achievements gone

We’ll get the 3% back eventually, somehow, maybe… All I know is that the missing 3% is hindering my progress. 3% doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up very quickly over a 24 hour period in a game that gives you cash multiple times per second.

This is a bug that should be moved to the top of the list and fixed immediately. Put the updated content on hold, and fix the problems with the main game first. That makes the most sense.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / What's up with newspapers?

Newspaper upgrades don’t work like they are described to work.

Example: Click ‘Unlocks’. The achievement of 2,900 newspapers offers a reward of ‘Newspapers x15’. Yet, when one reaches the goal of 2,900 newspapers, a random business is boosted, and the newspaper business barely raises in profits.

It’s pretty witty of the developers to upgrade another business through the newspapers, seeing as how they are used for advertising. BUT, if the achievement says ‘newspapers x15’, then shouldn’t we also get a 15x multiplier for newspapers?

It’s definitely possible. I am on 4,999 right now, and waiting for that last candy cane before I finally refresh my browser :)

EDIT:
I had to get 5,001 for the achievement to unlock.

That’s a great idea. I like idle games, but the ones without an ending just feel pointless after awhile.

The holiday event is not over for me. I am still getting candy canes, but I only get 10% cash or coal from presents. Hows come I don’t get time warps anymore?
