So. When I am watching other people fail play the game, It lets me notice things I dont quite notice when I am crushing playing the game.
So Quil18 put up a lets play ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AUnmhPhiWI ) (and i am very much forward to watching quill and Arumba and Co playing this game multiplayer).
And something very interesting happened. Quill built a party dome. Not only did quill build a party dome, but he built one when the cost of power was above the profit of the dome.... SO by building this dome, he was losing money.
That is all well and good. players should be allowed to be stupid experiment. However, the AI was not so... understanding. In particular, over the course of the game, while the price of power skyrocketed to over 300, the AI loved to use power surges, dynamite, and EMPS to turn off Quill18's pleasure dome, thus saving Quill money.
So the AI was SPENDING MONEY on the black market to HELP the player.
In otherwords, it would be nice if the AI paid a bit of attention of the cost of inputs, as well as the output profit, when deciding when to blow things up... the AI should NEVER sabotage something which is costing the player money to run.
Some other things that came up in the course of watching this video:
1. When starting a game, It would be nice if the terrain type menu selection would have a tooltip about what kind of stuff will be seen after generation.
2. It is hard to tell the difference between dry ice and regular ice.
3. Streamers are really good at losing this game. Please buff.
