About: The Coal Must Flow | Workers & Resources Soviet Republic S1EP3
This game doesn't have Steam Locomotives, seems like a major oversight
Can you build roads and rail in circles or loops? Futurists used to say that would be the most efficient way to get around.
Your calculation of food is completely wrong. You can't "convert" a ton of crops into 1 ton of food. You'll need ~6 tons (iirc) for that. With this ratio, the profit gets way
About selling electric power:
With one power plant you can sell max. 10 MWh. As you saw, 1 MWh is 1,11 Rubels atm. So, max income is 11,1 Rubel/hour which results in 266 Rubels a day. Taking into account, that you have to build huge and expensive industry + importing food, cloths, meat for 100s of workers, one can hardly pretend, that this is a "decent income". Every other product sells for more, with a much lower footprint in space and costs. One of the easiest, when already near the border, is importing materials for making clothes and export these right away. I know, oil is also super easy for making money, but honestly, it's quite near to cheating for me. ;)
Want to thank you for:
No Day-Night cycle
No 20 min. episodes
Just pure concentration on the game! ;)
One recommendation: Take care the ground leveling BEFORE you construct anything and you won't get this hilly billy layout with all it's problems. It's so important, 'cause it's already hard enough to manage the layout in 2 dimensions, don't frustrate yourself with adding problems in the 3rd dimension.
I thought of a idea...is Hyrdopower (i.e. dams) producing electricity available in the game....as an export-income generator it would be a low cost alternative...
Your nation is growing nicely General. I noticed you get more money for coal from the west, they must need coal more. With the value of the dollar being higher that would be a lot more profitable but it would also mean that you would have to build a small dedicated coal town solely for that purpose.
Gr8 work GC, love the train.
There is a distance limit.. You'll need another construction office when you get outside the effect radius.
If you just check auto build after you finish planning the road, it will build.after you did the terrain.
General, you will find out, if you take coal out of your aggregate storage, it can out come out of one conveyor at a time.. So, you can't fill the power plant and a train at the same time. Hopefully the train will fill up before you run out of internal coal in your plant.
Isnt it better to export more electricity than coal, its more $ for the bang? You are not exporting much.
Do you have the ability to purchase dump trucks or cement trucks? Bulldozers and excavators don't work too well leveling the terrain without dump trucks to relocate the dirt. Roads get built easier if they have cement to add on top of the flattened dirt.
You don't need to demolish the planned road (or cables, conveyors or any infrastructure components), turn on the checkbox to autobuild using money and let the game run for a few seconds, to autobuild planned infrastructure
Greetings GC! Glad you found another train game. I’m just now about 70% with Railroad Empire. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The game is very much set to interact and run in a relatively moderate speed. Much more success with a slower temp.
Good job!...a quick addition to your export-income...up the amout of power youre selling...
Excavator and bulldozers can do terraform from the road depot as well, not need to wast slots in the construction office for that. Also that error message about no bulldozer, means you where out of range.
This looks like such a great game except for the terrible wireframe terrain
where is my german vehicles
