So just to be clear, land expansion 12 is about $40 US...

Am I the only one that thinks land expansion pricing is ridiculous?

  • Yes, I am wealthy so cost is not an issue

OK, I am relatively new to the game, playing for a few months and as often as possible each day. Just looking at achieving goals and land is certainly required. I also completely understand "pay to play" business strategy, but $40 for only the 12 expansion? Am I the only one that thinks this is ridiculous?

Nope, is ridiculous. And there's other purchase offers far more shocking 🤯

Never use compound options on a pool 😂
I would‘ve chosen 4, if you stopped just before that “and”

prices are indeed ridiculous, even though no one effectively spend 40 real dollars on land expansion number 12
that level costs 70k coins or 10 greens (when in sale, that means, every other week). No one with a bit of knowledge of the game will ever buy coins, and even when it’s not sale time, you get more than 20 greenies for 10 dollars....

;) True, maybe not all have lost friends playing the game... Just thought provoking that a new player with a little impatience will take one look at the pricing and return to Sim City...or even Clash of Clans where purchase bundles are more reasonably priced and people still spend a lot of money over time, but in $4.99 or $9.99 increments. It would be interesting to compare Clash of Clans pay to play revenue stream per 1000 users to that of Airport City. I would bet 20 greenies that this game makes less money on average sampling.

Completely agree. Smaller values would induce many more players to spend.

my current value for each bit of land is, atm, 50 greenies when on sale. It’s an absurdity! And that’s not even the middle point of the scale

My land purchases cost 140 greens per expansion (70 in the sale). So I have stopped buying land. But I do have 21,000,000 coins, so think nothing of warehousing buildings to make space. For me commercial buildings have no value except business centres which give you mystery bonuses, grand hotels give you 300 extra population limit, and Luna Parks give you 100 extra passenger spaces in terminal. So 6 each of these buildings get space. I am currently planning to warehouse other buildings to make space for more productive ones.

It's not that I am not prepared to spend money on the game, but I only use it to buy bonuses now (mainly vintage weathervane and gold dice). Everything else is too expensive - so no more Police Stations, no extra production in factories (120 greenies to upgrade sleeping pill production? I dont think so!). The bonuses are reasonably priced for what they add to the game.

But I do spend £20 a month on the National Lottery. Who knows, I may buy some more land when I get seriously rich. Or I may die of natural causes first. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Tbh, I really think those prices were designed when CBMs were a real possibility (even thou expensive) for all players. It makes sense to overprice some goods, when players have means to get those amounts of greenies mainly by playing the game. But that has changed, and the prices were not reviewed... changing the cap to 170 greenies or so isn’t enough

Andy, I noticed you mentioned 3x3 Business Centres for MBBs - I’m guessing you have the cheaper 2x2 Private Schools and Courthouses which drop items for MBBs as well?

Yes. But the Courthouse produces once every 2 days, Private School once per day, but Business centre is once every 8 hours. Usually get 2 collections each day from Business Centre (I work and sleep too :ROFLMAO:).

I use videos to accelerate my Private School. Gets me 10 collections from it a day, so ~6000 gold plus the occasional Cards on the Table drops.
