I am not 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain that there is an error in the popularity code.
I am #1 best sport team company, I used to average .4-.5% popularity a day pre update.
Now, ever since the company upgrade it's been gradually decreasing for no reason

Nothing changed: still have 4-6k customers a day like before
still running ads weekly
still same profit (perhaps more now due to the size upgrade I bought)
There is no sudden spike in the amount of companies
etc

right after the update: Popularity: 0.54%
2 days ago: Popularity: 0.38%
yesterday: Popularity: 0.21%
Today: Popularity: 0.19%

I have heard about quite a few companies having 0% efficiency for days now too (lots of cruise liners I believe) from mails, bugs, etc...


I would want someone to check this out.
This doesn't seem right. I make tons of cash, have tons of customers a day (more then pre update), yet popularity decreases day by day, and I'm fairly certain if it continues this way, I'll hit 0 % there too and be stuck on that. I have yet to see any increase in popularity since the update, and I'm almost convinced it's the same for other companies?
The green bar is also constantly 100% full green, which would mean my relative popularity is high compared to others. Then why am I sinking this low yet being the #1?


If you say the code is ok, then it's fine. I'm posting a bug to ask to have it checked out just to be certain. Here are 2 closed bugs about this 0% eff thing: (this might or might not be related)

Thanks!


EDIT: I'll be on holiday for a week now, Hate_Train [23707] will be running my company in the meanwhile.

Didnt Ched say that the popularity was now divided between all same-sort companies, lower popularity?

Confirmed for Ched.

Hmmm the code for popularity hasn't changed at all. Although the bar has changed to show how you are compared to others. I.e. Full bar means you're the highest in that company type.

Any more details, as I really have no idea?

umm, I have a cruiseliner and it's been 0% and a solid red bar since the update, yet I was always in the top 10 for that type (until the director went inactive for a couple days)

I've had a similar issue, my cruise liner has sat at 0% since the update, regardless of what changes I make.

If advertising gives a % increase of current pop, 0 multiplied by anything is still 0.
