    So I know that there is the Auto Collect feature at the Alliance Shop. At first, it was very enticing to me, so I decided to get a bank branch and see how it works. It costs 20 gold tokens and 200 silver tokens I believe...a worthy sacrifice if the Auto Collect was permanent. Imagine my surprise when it was a contract for a limited amount of time, and it costs even more gold and silver tokens for those contracts! My dreams were crushed; I was highly disappointed. With gold tokens being so valuable, nobody would invest in this. However, I think if it got a overhaul, it may be more enticing. Here are some suggestions:
    1) Let the initial cost be in greenies instead of tokens. Some price suggestions:
    10 greenies for one range around 3x3 facility
    50 greenies for 5 range around 3x3 facility
    100 greenies for 10 range around 3x3 facility
    If greenies isn't favored, then replace the greenies with gold tokens. Still worth it so long as the auto collect is permanent.
    Even if it's an event that is offered every 12 to 18 months, it still would be worth doing.
    2)Get rid of the contracts. Let it be permanent for the range....no questions asked. (if it costs gold tokens)
    If it's greenies, then let it cost 10% of what the facility auto collects in coins. In terms of pax and items, let it be 1000 coins for every 100 pax auto collected, and 1000 for every item collected each day. (thank you @Blue Jay and @volly )
    3)Have one facility for coins, one for passengers, and the other for items.

    The way that the facility is costly is in terms of the initial cost and the space that it takes up. I think it would be an amazing addition.

    Wow, thanks for saving me the time and effort for the ATM branch! Should be permanent, but perhaps cap at 7 days of collections (that is, you must click on the ATM at least once per week) so it doesnt just promote people not coming back to the game for months on end... I think that's their biggest concern.

    A solid point, but people still need to fly. That should never be automatic. And yes, DO NOT GET AN ATM! I was so livid when I learned that the contracts cost gold tokens. I think it should still be permanent, or if it is weekly, make it a fee that is easily manageable (like 10% of coins earned, or 1000 coins per 100 pax collected). Let the collection be automatic so long as there is money there. If there isn't enough to pay the fee, the autocollect ends until it's activated again.

  4. But why you get a bank branch before you ask, i am always before i buying any thing i will ask those more experience than me or i check some of my neighbors city if they have the building i want to buy and ask them. as i know from them best building to buy it from alliance office is reserve hangar and this is what i want.
    But for collecting money i am playing daily and collect daily i am comfortable with that i dont think that one day i will spend my gold and silver to get a bank branch.

    I bought it because nobody else really seemed to have information about it aside from what was told to us in the alliance shop. You won't know the cost of the contracts until you buy it and see. Also, bank branches are new....they were added within the past year.
    I don't need the reserve hangar now because I don't want to spend the additional greenies for slots anyway, but being able to auto collect from buildings within a range would be a nice option for those interested. I am highly interested in auto collect because we lose a lot of coins when we aren't playing, especially overnight. If you get the right buildings, and have an auto collect capability, people would really see the value in investing in certain coin collecting buildings. Same goes for items and passengers....especially items. I think it could be a revolutionary change if it's done correctly.

    From what I've read over the last month or so, it seems the first thing to get from your silver coins from doing the space missions is the grand hotel (+300 people in town), so I always thought that was more important than the 2nd reserve hangar, which has always been high on the list, but I was under the impression the hotel was more important for revenue reasons. [I'd quote the message but I forget where it was...] -t

    The Grand Hotel is the way to go if you are looking to increase population. The Town Hall costs a lot for a meager increase.

  11. When you move on to bigger planes you won’t want to have to sell them for things like event flights, alliance tasks and daily weather station flights. There will come a time when you’ll want every spare slot you can get.

    Oh I already feel the pain of that....trust me. It really comes down to which price you want to pay: a) couple hundred greenies one time, or b) millions of coins to re-buy jets each time.
    Until I get a casino/bank/mint (if it's ever offered again), I have to work with the few slots I have, and always keep at least one of each jet to reduce the cost of purchasing each time. Guess it all depends on the playing style
