All of my games end the same:
I get to around day 2 to 3, with population approaching 3000, and the level 1 and 2 zones get totally full, mainly with players just standing around socializing (and this is with a combat style game.) Most of the players are level 2 with “happy” stats. Even if I force them with a quest to go to a higher zone, the go there, and then walk right back and stay in the quest givers zone.
Once a zone or two get fully populated the problem just seems to get worse and worse, i.e.
dislikes go way up.
The game prompts you to build higher level zones, so I have to spend all my money building level 3, 4, and 5 bare bones zones, so there is not enough left tweak the old zones or add any more lvl 1 or 2 zones.
I have seen some posts here that suggest making two lvl 1 and 2 zones, but where do you get the resources to do that? Take out another loan?
I wish this game had a totally creative mode that gave you unlimited funds.
