So do you play FOE on a MAC or an iPad Pro? Am I allowed to ask you that question. Please do not bounce me for asking that question. You have me so paranoid now. Or, do you play FOE on Win10? Just curious, hope that is OK. I feel like I've got the KGB following me around now. I haven't been slapped so hard in quite some time. And I'm having serious side effects from a pharmaceutical prescription that gives me panic attacks. So, if you do decide to ban me, I'll probably have a heart attack and die. That's if the Apple Police don't get to me first. Thank you again, for setting me on the straight and narrow. Really, you are so intelligent. Will this get posted and am I kicked out for sure now? OMG, it's my temporary memory loss acting up again. They cut my medication in half, but it will take a while I guess for me to re-adjust to the lower medication. I hope that you are young, with no arthritis, a healthy heart and no need to take prescription medication. This has been the worst two months of my entire life. I have never been in trouble before like this in my life. I"m 67 years old and have never hurt anyone, even a flea in my entire life. I just want to stay an play FOE. Please don't kill me. It will kill me. I will have a heart attack and die. I'm not kidding. Please don't make me larvae FOE. I will never forgive myself. I can pay you more money if that's what it's all about. You must be a very high ranking and importantly smart person. You must never get a chance to play, that's why this happened so fast. I needed a place to put some information that I wanted to be kept secret and now you've read it. Maybe the KGB will show up and throw me off the balcony, now. If you love MAC so much maybe you've already told Steve Jobs or that new guy. This all happened because I had to purchase an iPad to play FOE and I cannot sit at my Win10 PC for hours and play the game anymore. It huts me far too much. And Apple made sure a horrible mess out of their version of the game in the App Store. Now I wish that I didn't spen $2500.oo and just played in all that pain. At least I wouldn't have lost access to my favourite game of all time. Even Chess. I have no one to play with chess with anymore anyway. My partner passed away a few years ago after a drunk driver hit and killed her, coming back from church. It's OK now, because I know she is in heaven. I'm so sorry, you don't need to know anything about that. You are far too busy trying to play the game, not read idiotic messages from someone old and grey and stupid like me. I'm so very, very, very sorry. PLease don't kick me out of the game. I can buy more diamonds if you wish. I think that I spent over $400 dollars not that long ago. But, I did mention that I suffer from Short Term Memory Loss, and I get Panic Attacks when some one frightens me. Please do hit the 'Delete' button. You must have the Crown icon for every player on FOE. And you just to tap it and all my hard work and money and enjoyment will be forever gone. I'm all alone now, did I tell you that yet. My lovely wife passed a short time ago. My life is almost over anyway. I'm so very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, sorry. Please don't do it.

I think when it is 2 hr data, it shows one thing. When it is 24 hr data, different values. I bet the Tholos L10 will be like the little wishing well, so it would be 11 - 18 gems but the parts would be 11 - 33 gems. But, the mill at 24 hr would have gem return. The 2/8/24 scenarios can make a difference in some cases, for gems. When I sell back items, I record the 2/8/24 hr values. Sometimes I choose 8 hr vs 24 hr bcs I get no change in the gem return (there is always a coin increase). Let me see if I can put what I have so far on the that page so you can access and edit too.
Well, we learn something new everyday. I do know the cultural premium and different values vs residential and production. will get what I have on spreadsheet.
Did you ever get to look at those two different lines I thought I saw on your graph and see if they were specific bonuses associated with the groups (higher slope/value basically FP&attack bldgs vs lower slope/value other bonuses). As I look at the spreadsheet more, I see there are certain values, like blocks with coins and gem ranges. those blocks may come in handy and I may want to organize the rows, highest coin value downward. But I didnt want to mess up anything you put in there. If you think I can insert rows, cut/copy/paste at will (guessing if you have any formulas, they are column dependent), then I will organize it and continue to add 2/8/24 hr data from my inventories.
Here is what I am thinking, look at an item, then a table tells you whether 2/8/24 is more beneficial. At some point, when the dealer matures, a table would be handy. End user can see quickly, pros and cons of doing 2/8/24 for gems. Coins is straight forward.
I have a standed boat (actually 2 of them) 8 hr vs 24 hr, no gem difference, 0-2. Then I wanted to get rid of my drummer school but there, 8hr gem 0-1 but 24 hr 0-2, so I wouldnt want to sell it on a 8 hr cycle. So I looked at Shrine of inspiration no gem difference between 8hr and 24hr. So I can sell 2 boats and shrine for 8 hr bcs I can no addition benefit on gem range (lets ignore coins, it is straight forward). then, When I want to do a 24 hr cycle, the drummer school would be better there. now I understand it is 1 more gem but best opportunity is important, at least to me. And the table would be great to reference so I don't have to keep loading, check the range for each item. just a thought but I think doable, just need to populate it.
I redid the table and Diagram... in google docs I was able to attach labels to the points in the diagram (thought that would be possible in Excel too, but could not find it...). Also the table is sorted for their Diamonds/TC Value)
stranded boat should have a gem range of 1.2 to 1.7999999999999998
Problem with populating it is, you need to look into the game data to look up the exact gem ranges - so you can do it for the items you have but not many other players would be willing to do so...
If you want to take a look:
go into chrome
go to the game page and enter your world
in the debugger go into the "network" tab and in the filter there enter "json"
the last "pure" json loaded contains the inventory data...
Regarding optimizing the barter strategy... I do not think many people would be interested in that - I only used the 2h/8h barter for my first 60 items - after that I sold everything at 24h - and i am already running low on high value stuff to sell. Sure, I only played for about 2 years now, but still - even if a veteran player has 10 times as much to sell, he will run low on high value stuff in the next three month or so...
Someone in my guild said - get 3 open slots then 24 hours everything bcs you will run out in time and not be able to populate the open slots. Plus, when you get over 200 gems 200K coin, you can buy anything unless you have a gambling problem and are hooked on the auction...lol. I have gotten a few deals in auction, pay the 24hr coin price on an item that when sold at 24hr will get you gems. Not very often and less now bcs many have trade coin. But I was on it immediately in the beginning. I will take a look per your instructions.
I have been busy lately but I observed something interesting. Sometimes we look deep into data, to try and fully understand things. So I am looking at my 3 players, then I look at my wifes player, we are all selling different things, different time cycles. Nothing has really been spent. The ratio of coin to gem is right around 1000:1
260K C 251G
187K C 174G (I am 95% sure this player bout something like 10K C, 22 G)
Hi Parton mystery solved I got a reply for FOE seemly For Cleopatra and Napoleon to be seen roaming about your city the relevant Event Buildings must also be present in your city:For Napoleon this is the Royal Marble Gateway and obelisk for Cleo. I have both in inventory due to lack of space. 🙂
Well, it is tough to figure out how they value the different benefits, attack and FP being the most valued is my guess. It might make sense to look at one set, like cherry blossom and see. And, sets most likely will be different then upgrades to one building. These are the times you wish you had a MIT stats grad in your back pocket...lol. What I was thinking, when you bid for an item, how much is appropriate to bid but a selection kit like cherry applies to 10 items (L1 and L2).
Rock L1 19400 C 15 G
Pond L1 12960 C 10 G
Only difference, R 5% attack, P 5% Defense, so I can already see the 50% increase A vs D. But then we bid on a selection set (these are actually available for me to buy right now, thinking take the rock). My gut feeling on this, it may be too difficult, too many variables.
Looking at your graph, I see two lines actually and that one outlier data point. It would be interesting to see the line with more slope, what are those items (what do they give and have in common) versu the lower line. I see two groups. The data point with about 7500 coin and 12 gems, following that line, what are those items? I will guess all attack and FP just based on the rock and pond (gong being the highest, L1)
I edited the Antiques Dealer page, but missed to fill in a summary of the changes. Since everyone is doing it, I guess you're supposed too. It was my first time ever editing an article, so I'm not that used to it. That's why. I added 100 fp to a table + starting bid.
Sorry for intruding on Robert's wall. Filling a summary is not mandatory, but is recommended for clarity on what was changed. No harm was done if you didn't put one this time. Congratulations on your first edit!
the names of the options are all in the game data - have a look into my HowTo - if you search in the described meta-data file for the buildings name you get the production options names under "available_products"
the file-name of the specific building you are interested in you can get from the city_entities metadata file (parameter asset_id). - It seems, "_0" has to be added at the end and "SS_" has to be added after the first "_" in the id...
PS: images of the buildings you listed are all on the site now.
