Should shops be open at all times?

  • Should shops be open at all times? Fluttershy

    I recently started playing Tiny Tower. I only have a few shops at the moment, but I do my best to keep them open at all times by keeping them stocked. The only problem I seem to notice is that my bitizens often make comments such as, "It feels like (x) shop never closes!"

    I know that if the shops close, I lose money. However:

    Will my bitizens be happier if I let shops close? Do they even get time off?

  • Bitizens happiness is tied exclusively to what job they have, if it is what they are good at or not and if it is there dream job.

    The Tinybook is mostly just fun observations.

    So yes keep your stores fully stocked.

  • The great things about bitizens is that they never seem to need to sleep. Thankfully you don't have to manage your bitizens personal concerns in this game, as the focus is the tower. Your bitizens will work 24/7 without any loss of productivity, so long as you can keep your shops stocked. So, yes, shops should be open at all times.

    If you see them complaining in the Bitbook, I think that's just the developers way of adding some personality into the game. :) The only way to make a bitizen happy in the game is to employ them in their dream job. Failing that, until their dream job opens in your tower, best practice is to match them with the area that they are highest in according to their profile. They will at least remain content until such time as their dream job opens and you reassign them. So long as you can match them with a job of interest level 5 or greater, they will be content. Anything less than 5 and they will be unhappy in their job.

  • I am having different windows stay open sometimes when I try to close them while in the base. As for instances, I will change out a soldier before a mission, I remove the existing soldier, and open the selection list to slot in a new rookie. The selection list stays open, and I cannot do anything to close it. Or, I change the loadout of a soldier, and I click to view the description of an item, the item stays open on my screen, and I cannot remove it. This usually leads to a crash to desktop if I manage to launch the mission. Is there any way to force these windows to close that I am missing

  • the course of 4 seconds; the Spirits dance around Io in a circle to protect him. If an enemy hero moves close enough to touch a Spirit, the Spirit releases its life energy in a burst, damaging all enemies in a 300 area of effect. Non hero units only take minor damage upon touching a spirit and do not cause them to explode. I remember initiating the spirits when an enemy was quite close to me but had I actually dealt any damage to the enemy before the 5 spirits were all summoned? During the 4seconds initiation/summoning time, no spirit seems to "release its life energy in a burst" when

There are quite a few items it seems, in the shops I have come across so far, that are available to be picked up with out paying for them that do not have their name in red text showing you are stealing them either. Is there any sort of consequence to collecting these items... possible, as long as I didnt want steel items. But this seems to be just the standard layout of the shops.

Does it cost 1 badge usage per round or event you play in?

Further, in the file there is also a list of room names and one of them mentions both Hall of Order and Succession and Hall of Order and Succession: "Easter Egg".
