    A good proposition to improve open play mode

    I have already opened this thread elsewhere, but I think I did it where it was not correct and they have removed it. My proposal is to make the most attractive open game. For a couple of weeks now I have been testing the PVP pirate role and I have noticed that when trying to assault a cargo...

    Money plummets

    Hey I was wondering if anyone can help. I’ve been playing franchise mode this week to breed elephants for the challenge. I started a new zoo with animals traded in, money was rolling in fast and then suddenly my money plummets to over £100,000 and I can’t seem to reign it back. I have bred lots...

    Franchise zoos and needs for new transfer methods

    I have two point: * Franchise zoos need to share money with each other as it is a franchise; what's the point of franchise if you can't share the money among franchise zoologists? * And we need a faster method to transfer animals from one zoo to another. It is tiring and boring to have to go...

    Old player whining

    External funding and donors

    Despite the game's focus on conservation, the financial side has a very theme park like mentality. Guests are the sole source of revenue, and you must cater for all their needs, which are pretty unrealistic for a zoo. E.g. shops every 50 meters, seeing only 5 specific animals, the will to not...

    New zoo always going into debt. Need bailout option or a way for zoo to come back.

    The last three zoos (1 is a career map) I have opened since the new patches all have issues with money. I'm currently in debt and can't get out of it. I have the minimum staff that is trained and can do everything, and I always get to 3-5 enclosures before the money to pay for staff and animal...

    Economy Crashing after update 1.0.3

    My zoo was very successful, and after the update, I begin to lose huge amounts of money without changing anything. Most of it is the cost of food and refunds, which were not a problem at all before the update. I currently lose 100,000 per 5 minutes, and before the update I used to get 50,000...

    Animal food costs

    It is quite hard to make a steady income in the game. Basically there are two main expenses, staff, and animal food. I recon the amout of money going to animal food is not really in balance. Lower ther costs of food, it would make the game more accesible and it gives you more freedom to play...

    How big is the money problem really?

    As we *all run around worrying about money for a certain new ship that may be arriving in December I thought I'd ask how much of an issue is it, if it is billions to buy? Is there a list of CMDRs fortunes, maybe a published average of CMDRs current money on hand? If you're **mega rich let us...

    Slavers and Passenger Transport

    Idk if this will fall on deaf ears but I wanted to throw a small suggestion. When transporting people you sometimes get a request from slavers to sell you the people you are transporting. They offer a way lower price and sometimes way out of the way. I think it would be a good idea if the...

    PLEASE have the option of turning money on in Sandbox mode

    Sadly planet coaster did not have this feature. But I would greatly appreciate it if we could have the option of using money in sandbox mode. I would like everything unlocked, but still have the challenge of building and maintaining my zoo with money. Any thoughts on this?

    It would be nice, if you could put a bounty with your in game money on other players who killed you. The amount would be of the players choosing.

    An idea on missions vs Rebuy cost

    I personally feel when it comes to missions, you should get some sort of bonus money based on how valuable your ship is, like first, the initial price of the mission, Plus an extra 50% Rebuy cost money added. The more expensive your ship is the more money you will make through doing missions...
