bug or am I missing something? : 2nd building

Thu, 08/01/2013 - 02:03 -- Psychorug

I got the second building permit (even if I finished at - 5000$ and then -minus 30000 as I had to save holo). I did not find any options to buy the second building. 

I then just finished Sophitia quest, a house has been vacated, and there is still no option to buy this other building I got a permit for. I chose the theater ffirst, might it be the problem?

Do I still lack something or is it a bug?

The second building quest is buggy - nothing you did wrong.

It can be fixed by editing your save.

  1. Export your save, and open it in a text editor.
  2. Find the text "maxBuildings" - it should be set equal to 1, at the moment.
  3. Change it to equal 2 (which is what the quest should have done.
  4. Save the change and import the file. You should new be able to buy your second building.

Sorry for the headache. :)

So I had the same problem and followed these instructions to no avail. I have several save games exported, numbered by windows as save1-7, as well as "save", using the "save" file to edit and then importing it, leaves me at like day 30 or something and just one girl. importing the "save(7)" file puts me back aways too. so I'm at a loss here.

{edit} N.M. I figured it out. When I save or export a game the system was saving to the general folder the game folder was located in. The game itself was creating its working save within the game folder, which is the save I should have been working with.

Thanks and no problem

Well I'm lost now. After istalling this game to Win8.1 it doesn't seem to be saving or exporting anywhere. After creating a unique save and export I was unable to find it anywhere on my HDD.

The game saves in your browser's LocalStorage, which isn't accessible with a file browser.

Where the exports go, however, is entirely dependent on your browser. Probably wherever downloads are usually saved, if it didn't prompt you - I have mine set to "always ask".

Sorry BlueWinds, I tried doing what you said on here, but even though I exported, saved as a text file, edited only the "1" by making it a "2", and then imported, it still doesn't work. whenever I try to import an edited, or unedited save, it says:

SyntaxError: JSON Parse error: Unrecognized token '\'
Line 63
Attach an export of your current game when reporting bugs.

admittedly, while I'm not totally inept with computers, I'm really more talented with carving things. Anyways, any help is appreciated.

"Attach an export of your current game when reporting bugs."

It would be helpful if you did that (attached the export you tried to alter).

You're right, air headed mistake on my part. I've attached it here

On line 621 a pair of \"s were replaced with just "s. I have no idea how that happened, since I doubt you did it intentionally.

Here it is fixed with maxBuildings changed to 2.

thank you so much. It's really good to see that you follow through and take the time to look into this kind of stuff, most online game developers just give you the "I'll look into that". Thanks again
