Default Question.

Hi all.

I don`t know if anyone reads this forum or not any more so here goes.

I don`t even know if there is ever going to be another upgrade patch to this or not so I will make a request anyway.

Well I only just found this game and it is as close to the sort of space trading game I have been after for ages.

So I got hold of a copy and upgraded to version 1.3 and set about making my fortune in the galaxy. I set my target at the highest setting expecting to have a good long game. Not so in 1 hour and 45 minutes I had completed the game, so I started again and and this time it only took 1 hour 30 minutes.

So my suggestion is that if another upgrade patch is planned could you please and the option at the start of the game to play unlimited or have the option when reaching goal to continue the game or quit.

Apart from the above this is a great game and just wish I had come across it earlyer.

The Cap Man (Keith).

IIRC, you can keep playing indefinitely as long as your cash in hand is under the target amount; it doesn't check your bank account balance.

I`m sorry to say that your advice did`nt work for me. I had 9,945,936 in the bank and 34,876 in my hand, and as soon as I sold all my cargo in the hold for a total of just over 1 million the game ended. So putting all my spare cash in the bank did not work.

Please is there going to be an update to allow you to play forever.

Hey Keith,

Wow, you must be a good player to gather 10 million in 90 minutes! In my testing, took me about 3-4 hours at least. I honestly thought this would be the ultimate limit for many players.

Due to the way the game is structured, once you reach 3-4 million, if you use the bank properly, going up from there is pretty easy, it seems.

Glad you're having fun with the game though!
