  • Is my regional highway ramp supposed to use power? user16531

    Context: After bulldozing my entire city to start fresh with the money saved up, I found that my budget was running at -240 pr hour because of power cost to the highway ramp (to region).

    Question: Is this a bug, or working as intended?

    Info about the city.

    • The city is on year three and I have about 4 million credits on hand (Maxed out taxes, turned off all the utilities, and let it run until I was making less than 5k pr hour. Then I bulldozed everything).
    • The -240 shows up under "Power" in the budget.
    • When I use the map tool for power I can see the little strip of highway sticking into the city (the part you can't remove) light up red. (Nothing else shows up when using all the various map data views).
    • I am 100% sure that there is nothing in the city.

    Speculation: Maybe there is a trigger for this once the city gets going, as a game balance element?

  • It seems like bulldozing buildings doesn't always properly release the 'resources' that they are using. Before taking out a 'ploppable' make sure to power it off first, check that all of the vehicles have returned then bulldoze it.

  • Hakon, Gormaith Golden-Hilt and Felldir are the 3 heroes that help you kill Alduin at the end of the main quest. All three of them are "un-killable" as they just fall down and then stand back up once all their health is drained. However, after a whole hour of determination I managed to get them all by the waterfall on the left of the map. I was then able to drain their health and use unrelenting force which caused them to fall down the waterfall; eventually they went down so far that they literally fell off the map and disappeared. Now I'm wondering what will happen when I use any

  • One thing I keep wanting to do is have the small mini-map in the lower-right console stay up while I'm flying somewhere. This would make it so much easier to see where everything was, where the highways went, and possible ships in my vicinity that could be a problem. However, the only time I see that map is when I target a highway marker. It shows up for a small time, then goes back to saying "No Signal". Has anyone found a way to keep this thing open while flying?

  • and the gym is empty. I can strangely pickup the machine parts that should have been needed for the power plant. I believe my game events are messed up. Other evidence: The mimic girl in Saffron City who needs her pokedoll from Vermillion City isn't even asking for it and gave me the "Pass" for the magnet train right away Although I have the pass and the power plant has the power working the train...I am playing Pokemon Crystal on an emulator (visual boy advance). I've made it to the Kanto region and got as far as Cerulean City and got stuck at the gym. I went to the power plant and normally

  • I need to do the exact same thing as this question, but for imports. My neighbor sends tons of shoppers clogging my highway (I wish I could put down toll booths to tax them). I need oil for my power plant and ore for my smelter, but because the highway is basically completely disconnected at this point my resources never arrive even though I have both a rail freight terminal and a dock. Is it possible or is this city hopelessly screwed at this point?

However, 2 days ago, I updated my Nvidea driver.

These things, apart from the windows cursor appearing, also happen in both Fallouts. (I figured they all have the same problem, since

  • Tried the Power Fist from the Modular Powersuits mod in Tekkit 1.1.10 (MC 1.5.2) for the first time today.

PPJoy: doesn't detect my joystick, and it's not parallel port anyway Use Joy2Key to map throttle to certain keypresses: Works only for a few... in-game throttle on other controllers such as my keyboard. For those wondering, this is the joystick, the paddle/lever on the back is the throttle: All I need is for this throttle control... accessible/practical to use: my electronics expertise peaked at putting the cords back together after doing the above. Buy a better joystick: no, I don't have that kind of money, I can't buy online
