    Thanks for pointing this out to me. You know, I'm a pretty mellow dude, but this really bothers me a lot (and I would use much stronger language here- even though I don't curse very often)! Why are they purposely sabotaging their game? I just don't get it! Do they think they are Google and can get away with this stuff?

    Good catch. Looks like it was plus 5% but now minus 5%

    Also I did an experiment today on the concert by request bonus (at top under population). The time reduction only affects production you start after using it. The productions you already have going are not effected. This would be useful on quarry instead of using a credit to get the last item. But you have to use concert before starting production!

    It's the same with the population growth, only affects new starts after starting bonus, not for anything already started

    I see that in a couple of builds (Eiffel Tower and Commercial Port) there is one task that says "Collect 500 Energy." To date I have not seen how you can collect energy. Am I missing something really basic, or does the ability to collect energy only start when you start the task? The only energy I see in the game interface is up on top (the 25/25 thing). The only time I have had to use that energy is on special tasks like say "Meet 100 Journalists" in the River Bridge construction. If I don't have a similar task active while the task kicks in for the ET or CP, how do I go about collecting energy?

    Thanks for your help!

    I am planning on starting the hydro plant, but have a few questions: 1)15 paper in the WH- do I have to have it all in there at the same time (not use it after it is made until I reach 15), will it disappear after 15? 2) The same goes for milkshakes and the cookies? 3) Aluminum- all 40 at one time? Pre-made?

    Yes you have to have all items in there as requested per task. The items will disappear after you complete the task.

    Yes you use the energy bar you mentioned. You open the left side icon and tap collect 25 times. The energy bar will go to zero. Then you wait until there is more energy to collect more. Three minutes for each unit of energy. You can only collect it when you get to that task.
