Mall rental fee Emails

Post by Sparky » Tue Jul 12, 2016 9:36 pm

Mall rental is 3k per day. Once this is known, it is known. I think that the confirmation emails are therefore not necessary. This would mean less emails in the game.Not kicking off, just an observation. Less email is good :)


If at first you don't find a mission ore, try and try again :)

I have a bunch of malls, and can say they are a pest.

Maybe there could be just one e-mail that includes all the data? In case the code change would be daunting. Otherwise, I concur with my CE mates, the e-mails are annoying and not necessary in any way shape or form. Plus it would be easier on the servers.

I say NO to CE SPAM! :)

OK I have this morning turned off the 'message' element of the Mall Billing process. It still takes the mall rental based on the size of your mall but no longer PM's you.

The FIRST instance of someone logging a bug stating they keep loosing funds, that leads to me having to explain how the Mall bills come out.... they go back on. Trust me its easier for you to click 2 buttons a day than me trawl through logs and spend an hour trying to figure out what might be wrong.

Two clicks per mall. some of us have more than one, lol

Perhaps you could modify /mall_view.php page (View Assets->View Malls).
For example, on top of the page:
"Daily running cost, for all malls is XXX cr and YYY Tl".

And/Or:
More detailed information on bottom of the page, like:
"Malls have running cost. Kiosk Mall costs ZZZ Cr (...). Fee is deducted every day at XX:XX."

Or something like that :)
