So apparently I'm unaware of what EA and Maxis' grand scheme is. You raise the prices of stuff at the stores....ou completely obliterate the payouts and job wages. How are people supposed to have fun playing the game when they cant buy stuff or make any money? You are creating more bugs than you are fixing. You take away property bonuses....how can people afford to keep their lots open without having any money. Don't for a minute say that putting a tip jar out is the answer to this....how can people tip when they aren't making any money...let alone being stingy and not thanking the people who work hard to help them skill. You are focusing all your attention on EA Land, when there are still tons of paying people in TC3 (who BTW were forced to move there when you merged the two cities). This bugs the crap out of me. If you want to build up EA-Land, by all means do so. I remember the old days when we were rewarded for playing the game, and thanked for being loyal customers.
