    The purpose of this forum is to discuss elements within Game Insight's Big Business game - this is not a friend request forum. There are a lot things within the game that can be discussed, and this forum can allow users to post questions which will get answered by fellow gamers (since Game Insight's tech staff are not very useful).

    To get the ball rolling, there are a few mystery Achievments within the game - for those that finished them they can share their responses on how to accomplish these achievements:

    Also, what's the deal with papayas - where on earth are you supposed to use them?

    Papayas are combined with dough in the Food Plant to make strudel.

    Ah, I haven't built my food plant yet. That explains it.

    GI told me that papayas and mangoes were the same thing :D

    Interesting one.

    Where's the avocado supposed to be used? Also in the food plant?

    Another question that is less than obvious: how do you get to the quarry?

    The quarry - thats an interesting feature, one that im not going to rush for.

    First off, most people will need to expand territory 3 times to get to it. Then i had to sell 20 items from the warehouse, grain, being a quick 2 minute crop was good for this. It then came up with a message that the quarry owner was still considering my candidancy for the job. This went on for a week, sell 20 items, wait 24 hours, sell 20 items, wait 24hours, etc.

    Once you get through this stage, you're given access to the quarry only to find it partially drowned and you need to obtain 6 pumps, available from trips from the terminal, or from visiting friends cities. Once 6 pumps obtained you're then given 12 hours access to do whatever,the first i think was limestone (2 hours) and you have to have x amount of dump trucks. After 12 hours that was it, then you need more pumps.

    The resources from the quarry i believe are used in upgrading the entertainment facilities.

    Found an annoying bug. I moved my weaving factory into storage to make room so I can move some of my buildings around. Afterwards, I tried to replace the weaving factory from storage and it says I have insufficient population, forcing me to hit the next population cap just to place it down again. I clearly had enough population before putting it into storage.

    Anybody else try this and had this happen too? So be warned, don't store your factories in the storage unless you don't plan to use them again for awhile.

    Thanks for that kiwiguy - I'll keep buying up territory then to get started. It sounds a tad painful, given that you need six pumps to get it running for 12 hours; and this no doubt means a garage upgrade and more trucks (which ain't cheap).

    How annoying - I have not done this yet, but good advice to not store factories by the sound of things.

    Your best bet is to hear from GI - good luck on that front.

    My game, touch wood, has been running solidly with no issues at all.

    Well, it happened to me now. I inadvertently "stored" my farm this weekend by just being too quick and tap-happy, and couldn't bring it back because of low population, which was complete rubbish (because my population levels were high - so I had to go on a major entertainment buildling spending spree to get it back. Painful. To prevent this happening, I just placed to two small buildings in storage to block up the space.

    Does anyone find the "special quests" (like the thanks giving one) unrealistic in terms of time? I cannot dedicate 6 days of non-stop play to this game, and I've not come even close to the completing the thanks giving quest. I've built all the buildings, but collecting the items is impossible unless you build stacks of them... I think I'm going to stop trying on these now. They're just annoying.

    Oh yeah. Those holiday quests are there to get you to spend some cash to get that super building at the end. Even if you stayed awake 24/7 playing constantly, you couldn't make it given the time constraints. I think the only hope for us who don't spend any real money is if they repeat the same holiday quests year after year. Maybe in a couple years, I'll be able to get that super turkey building.

    P.S. Protip. The sweet waffle cafe that costs cash to build is totally worth it. I saved up all my cash from level ups, then waited for the 30% off building sales then bought it. It produces waffles that sell for $9100 every 20 minutes. And it only requires dough and sugar to make. That's over 27k in an hour, minus the initial costs of course. Totally worth it in my opinion.
