Very nice, solid game. Here's an idea, maybe make houses or saloons where you can keep population instead of having tent upon tent of them just outside. I feel like I'm killing people when there's a god vein right next to a settlement. Otherwise, as Lakawak stated, perhaps some sort of commerce would be a great addition to the next game if there will be one. Looking forward to it!

I got really addicted to this for a long time but still could use a little something though like maybe extra workers or something like that that gather gold nearby but great game.

day 99 with everything maxed and no desire to get the achievements, most of which i already have. a nice 4.5 star game, my only problem with it is the wild fluctuation in gold value. in one day it went from a value of 2k + to being under 600. maybe a gradual decline instead of just randomly tanking, then taking forever to get back up to any form of decent numbers would be nice. a stark agreement to all the other suggestions, but i'll add this one too. Instead of just trees, through in some rock formations that have a higher ore content when destroyed, but in turn are either in difficult places or require steadily strengthening bombs to destroy. also, an increase in total load and fuel would be great, considering on my last 15 nuke run on the same spot i wound up leaving behind about 3/4 of the ore i mined. solid game though. good job.

Yeah everything sc2Nightmare said sounds like a good idea. Another upgrade I wish there was would be to be able to set your load station at the top instead of the bottom if you wanted to.
