Updates October 20072007/10/28 19:04 Ok so the site is a lot more stable now and theres a bunch of new upgrades. Some people I think will be very disapointed. (copied from the TC announcements) Factions 1. Warbase change. It shows current respect of the factions you are at war with. 2. Warbase change. Members are now listed in order of their level, higher levels at the top. 3. News and attack news have been extended from 10 to 25, this should help leaders see things that members attempt to cover up. This may be extended to 50 later if the need arises. Faction Drug Armoury The need and request for a drug armoury has been coming since the introduction of drugs. Finally you all have what you’ve requested for so long. This works the same as the medical upgrade and a donate link will appear in your items page once the faction has been upgraded. Property upgrades – Multiple properties, you can now own however many properties you want to. – Renting, You can rent properties to other people. – Market, a housing market where you can sell or rent properties to other people – Property upgrades, personalize your property with 14 customizations giving you secret abilities for example, a swimming pool which increases gym gains, a vault where you can store money, and an airstrip which decreases travel time and gives you a travel item boost of +10. All upgrades also increase your maximum happiness. The better your property, the more customizations you will be able to buy. – Staff, hire staff for your property and give them a daily wage. Giving you special secret abilities and greatly increasing your maximum happiness. You can get to your property list by clicking “Properties” on the sidebar or clicking the image of your property on your home. Crimes The amount of happiness you have now acts as a large boost for crime success rate. Newspaper adverts advertisement cost in the newspaper has been brought up to $250,000 from $50,000 to decrease spam. Casino A realistic version of casino blackjack with all the official rules including 5 card Charlie, surrender, double down, split and insurance. Open to level 4 and over! Bet up to $10,000,000! Company Specials 70 new company specials! Blood sweat and tears have gone in to this! Seventy new and unique job specials! Each company type now have their own Rank 3 and Rank 5 special. Ranging from job points for stats, job points for drugs, hunting boost, stealth boosts, weapon damage boosts, max nerve boosts, travel items boost, armour boosts, the ability to hack other companies, hack other peoples virus programming progress, boost and lower other peoples happiness, trading for special items, decrease bank time and many many many more. When a company hits rank 3 or rank 5, the new special will appear on the company special list. —- Well… It’s not quite as black and white as it first appears. For example, the property upgrades depend on what house you own, I’m currently in a Ranch and I do not see anything like an airstrip or a vault. So the older players will have an advantage… again. Also, looking at how much some of the house upgrades cost… My god, I think that even the veteran players will find it hard to pay the upkeep. New players have utterly no chance of taking advantage of some of these. Not by a long shot. However, they can still use some of them. But the one thing I wanted more than anything and the one thing which needed to have attention has still to be done… Racing… utterly nothing so far has been done to make it fairer on new players. The new company specials are great, except for the fact the jobs have been broken for the last week and we still cannot use the new specials/spend job points. It’s not quite the updates we wanted/needed. But the property updates are certainly worth the wait. Post edited by: aurigus, at: 2007/10/28 19:58

Re:Updates October 20062007/10/28 19:16 Estate Agent Heres one update they kept quiet about… and for good measure. You can no longer sell your house back to the estate agent. Meaning in order to sell your house you must place it on the selling market. Thats going to utterly kill the game for new players. Mid to high guys won’t find it too much trouble. But I can remember when I just started and thinking it was nearly impossible to get some houses, the only way I could upgrade my house was to do a mission and the go back to the shack and then combine the old house money with the mission money in order to buy something new. Given how some people make ridiculous demands on the item market, I don’t think that the new property selling system is going to be loved by many new players.

Re:Updates October 20062007/10/28 19:19 Well now… “Are you sure you want to update your Ranch with an open bar, Cost $9000” *Clicks yes* “You upgraded your house with an open bar. your happyness bar has increased from 600 to 650!” And that was for the cheapest upgrade! And no you do not get taxed for upgrades which are not staff related.

Re:Updates October 20062007/10/28 20:06 I’m posting info in here as well – moved to “Submit info” forum and updated thread title! I already updated a bunch of stuff, and didnt write down what exactly I got from everything. So I missed out on alot. If anyone else is doing this to collect info, do it one upgrade at a time so you can see how much happy it adds. This information is for Palace – I don’t know if it applies to other housing as well.

None ($0) Small Vault ($20,000,000) Medium Vault ($42,000,000) Large Vault ($98,000,000) (wow) Daily costs: Maid service ($5,000 per day) 2x Maid service ($10,000 per day) 3x Maid service ($15,000 per day) 5x Maid service ($25,000 per day) Butler service ($7,500 per day) 2x Butler service ($15,000 per day) 3x Butler service ($22,500 per day) Guard ($15,000 per day) 2x Guards ($30,000 per day) 3x Guards ($45,000 per day) 5x Guards ($75,000 per day) 10x Guards ($150,000 per day) Post edited by: aurigus, at: 2007/10/28 20:14 We are whom we protect.

Re:Updates October 20062007/10/28 20:32 Rodel30 – I see you have a Castle – which gives you access to Doctors on your staff which does not come with the Palace. Palace also has a vault available, I’m guessing with each property you get more and more options to add on. Does anyone know how much money the vault lets you store? We are whom we protect.
