it would be a nice bonus. like the drug packs. not know what you will get. job special or not. I would like the item .



Did you not see the bit where I mentioned it would be the same as the existing special (a case of 10 cans for 100 points is the same as a can for 10 points).

Like I said we also don't want sweetshops to become overpowered again (compared to other companies in the same price range), so making the new special better than the current one probably isn't a great idea just after the issue has been corrected.

Software Corporation:
- Covert-Ops Hacking: Hack anonymously 3-5% of a target's company bank for 500 job points, 20% chance of bypassing SYS firewalls (in case of failure caused by firewall, no points spent or reduced cost of points spent, but a 24-hour cooldown period must be observed)


^^^ If that one happens it will be so damn overpowered and piss off so many players that there will be a mutiny.

Please don't do that. It will drive everyone to the faction bank which is already a complete pain in the ass.

Since the Sports team has been changed to Fitness center, the specials should be more towards a Fitness center.

Kettlebells A great alternative to free weights. Example, using them involves total-body movement while boosting strength and cardiovascular fitness. = Increase Endurance

Reflexology Stimulates the nervous system, encourages the release of feel-good endorphins = Happy boost

Midday workout Boost your productivity and increase your stamina = Reduce drug addiction

Replace Tutoring with Buti class A high-intensity workout that fuses yoga and dance with plyometric and conditioning. = Decrease education course time.

Car Dealership

Instead of changing points for a specific car, how about changing for random cars in certain classes?

Say,
5 points for E class
10 points for D
15 points for C
20 points for B
25 points for A

or 10 points up to 50 points?

And start with new companies only allowed E class cars, upto 10* companies being able to get A class.

I think 500 points for one car, which will be worth around $1m is alot. Considering cars we have now are (in the real world) much better suited to racing than a Veyron.

As sweet shops and oil rigs were still under construction as it were:

Sweet shop

Red Bull - 3 Energy for 1 job point. 150E would cost 50 points.

Wide Eyed - Increased awareness (passive)

Money Laundering - Bank time is decreased by X hours for X job points

Mafia Front - Protection from attacks for X hours per X job points

Hitting the books - Reduction in Education X hours for X points

Special Sweets - Drug pack for 150 job points or Ecstasy for 5 job points


To be honest I just want to get away from sweet shop directors being known for extorting cans.

I'd also like to see something boosted other than happy. There are already two happy related specials. In a PI with staff having 5000 happy even a boost of 1000 or 2500 happy for job points is simply replicating the existing specials and making a pretty insignificant contribution to my stat gain since training at 7.5k gives maybe a 15% increase over training at 5k.

I would like to see something that gives a gain in stats. Whether working or fighting stats - like the furniture shop or sports team.

Seems to me that money aside the Fitness Centre has the best specials already by a long way and no doubt they'll get more excellent ones, while the sweet shop is likely just to get a half arsed happy boost again.

Since the update reduced staffing levels so drastically I have seen a lot of 5 star directors now taking two cans a week from their employees which is beyond ridiculous - but necessary in light of the income under the new formula.

Obviously with so many people exploiting the sweet shop as a lucrative income stream with no downside it was due to be hit hard, as were CLA's. Unfortunately as is so often the case with a nerf it went a little too far in both cases.

In order to achieve sales of half a million a day even with drug free multiple logging in staff each accepting a low wage (50k), it requires several million in advertising. As I am trying to get to 5 star currently I am paying 3 million a day in advertising while the income from the store covers the cost of the staffs wages. Even with two cans being taken from the staff the director isn't exactly raking it in.

I understand the start up costs are low and it's easy to run, but that doesn't mean it should be a money sink! Specials that perhaps widen the scope a little and take the focus away from just cans cans cans would be a good thing. I could live with the cans special being removed and replaced with something else since it's the root of the hate.

Sorry for the rant, I know this isn't the time or the place but without it the specials will just be considered overpowered for such a small business!

Update: My sweet shop hit 5 star today so until 10 star companies go live I'll advertise at the old max rate and see where exactly that gets me in income vs expenditure.

Pub:

"Hair of the Dog" or "After Hours" could be any one of the following:

Either 25% reduction in booster cooldown time (passive) or reduce your booster cooldown 45 minutes per job point.
25% reduction in drug cooldown (passive) or reduce your drug cooldown 20 minutes per job point.

this could enable the use of extra boosters/drugs but make it add up so players are limited an extra FHC or Xanax every other day

"Hair of the Dog" could also be

reduce addiction for job points

"Spiked Drink"

Set a Targets booster cooldown at 24 hours the next time they use a booster for 50 job points, or
Hospitalize a target the next time they use a drug or booster for 50 job points...


"Would you like to drink the *Bottle of Beer*?

> Okay!

"You drink the cool, refreshing Bottle of Beer."

nudist_rebels (or someone... same as stealth) slipped you a mickey, you wake up in the hospital

in hospital for 23 minutes: "Drank a bad Bottle of Beer" or "Someone slipped em a Mickey"

"Free Drinks"

Free energy drinks for job points

"Cash Cab"

money per job point

I am opposed to calling any pub special "Alcoholics Anonymous"... unless the special involves forcing a target to stop using drugs and alcohol and pay for treatment.

It is a fact that Alcoholics Anonymous is no more effective as a recovery method than spontaneous cessation. Alcoholics Anonymous is a quasi-religious organization whose members suffer the shared hallucination that giving your will and your life to the care of god is the only way to quit drinking. If you do or say anything to contradict this fundamental theology you are then labelled by the group as an "incurable." These hypocrites say that you have to be "open-minded" to recover but refuse to believe that people stop using drugs or alcohol outside of their circle, citing such cases of cessation as "dry drunks" or people on the road to destruction.

/rage

These people are also the easiest people on the planet to troll in online forums.
