I just came up to the same bug as Mystify. I have the hire worker menu open, but none of the workers are selectable, and it won't let me switch to other menus. I can go back to the main menu and continue, but that doesn't fix the problem.

It doesn't take too long for the biggest problem to be spending money fast enough. Literally, I have way to much, and it lags so horribly it is painful to place and promote people, and I can afford hundreds... needs better mass-management system. The individual approach may work in the beginning, but beyond that it is problematic.

How do the office upgrades work? Does the advanced accounting upgrade increase the profit of workers in that office, or do they have to be accountants in that office?

Wow, the ending is...

completely underwhelming.

LSN57: Only accountants in an accountant office will get the bonus. I think you can put other workers in them, but you can't promote them past a certain level.

Mystify: Agreed. Beat the game with $71 million, and I was making $1.8M/day. Even after I dropped a _ton_ of researchers in at the end and promoted them all, I was still only down less than $100K.

One more 1/6 of the regular "office" wide and it would be easy to play with in cheat mode with unlimited funds. It would mean that acrosseach floor could be 8 office blocks + 2 toilets OR 8 offices + 1 cafeteria/gym. Or 1/6 less would give 8 offices OR 7 offices + 1 toilet. 1/2 less would be exactly 7 offices + 1 toilet on each floor.

Yeah, really needs a mass management system. Also, some rebalancing, as you once you get some key promotions, you get WAY too much money to ever spend.

Good game nonetheless, I enjoyed it.

Also, another nitpick: for me, the balance at the end of the day seems off. It told me I was making 5 million a day, when I was in reality making around 30 million.

After building a 3rd floor, no employees on that floor are able to go down and leave the bulding, no matter what I use (elevator, lift tube, etc.). I have upgraded elevators all the way, and still it won't work. For some reason, employees on the first floor can ride the 2nd-3rd floor elevator, but the 3rd floor employees can't. Kind of a game-breaking bug, as I can't progress past a certain point.

I accidentally closed the game window, reloaded it, and lost a bunch of my research. But that could also possibly be due to my receiving of the elevator upgrades prior to actually finishing the research on them.

It only saves at the end of the day (when it pops up the balance sheet).

There are a couple of annoying interface mis-designs. I get particularly annoyed at the "goal achieved" bubbles hiding whatever status screen I was trying to look at. Or not trying to look at: sometimes when you try to click a button, instead it brings up the status screen of whatever was behind the button. It also sometimes just moves the viewport, with no rhyme or reason that I could detect. And it steals focus: I don't know how many cats I've placed in unintended locations, and how many balance sheets I've closed in annoyance. Other than that, it would be nice if I could check how many workers I have of a particular type, and if I could promote or move them without having to hit a moving target and/or wait for morning.

But hands-down, no question about it, the biggest problem by far is that there's no "zoom out" function.

Game mechanic wise, some of the goals are annoying about not detecting previous action. For example, do try not to add an additional elevator shaft before you get to that goal, because otherwise you'll need to spring for a third shaft before it'll give you the bonus. Also, I don't like how some of the goals are deliberately counterproductive. Would anyone ever install a firepole or skyhook if a goal didn't require it?

And then there's the bugginess and lagginess. I once got to a point where the up arrow didn't work. Left and right worked, but up didn't. (Don't know if down would've worked, I was at the bottom of the screen.) But I loved the doubled-up overdedicated workers clicking buttons 24/7. In the Cafeteria.

Unfortunately, this game has a lot of problems. I got to day 6 and was probably making over 1 million a day by that point, by using the Freeze button (on day 5 I'd made about $62,000, and about $30,000 on day 4) but I accidentally hit the back button around 4:15 and lost all that day's progress, since it took me back to midnight. Autosave at midnight is a terrible idea. I lost around ten floors of intense micromanagement because of it.

Needs a much better upgrade system. It should be like other games: select unit and press U or Space.

And finally, are accountants really intended to be so overpowered? I built about 10 offices worth of workers, and then probably 70 more of accountants, plus other various stuff. You'll need some researchers, janitors, techies, and supervisors, but for simple money making just get a few workers and then an army of accountants and you'll be rolling in the dough by day 6.

4/10 for cool idea but bad execution. The terrible save feature is the worst of it by far.

I've had the same troubles as Bogus, Keith, and others. It's really too bad because without all those glitches, this would be a great game. With the repeated glitches and design flaws (no way to close the "goal achieved" pop-up and no way to identify which employee belongs to which desk/office), it is far more frustrating than fun.

I hope to see a new version out with the glitches fixed. I would even be willing to buy a vamped-up, feature-filled version.

Another bug to add to the list: switching someone's desk location when their current computer is broken results in the computer never getting fixed and any employee placed at the desk will sit and do nothing. The only fix is destroying the office (along with any upgrades you've put into it).

I agree about the biggest setback being no zoom out, for sure. I had a blast though, and though the actual win screen wasn't that great, I do think it was satisfying; I thought it was hilarious when I discovered what needs to happen to win the game. It's also pretty satisfying to have a billion dollars and be throwing vending machines into every office. (I instituted a policy where people who complained about elevator noise immediately got an original artwork. I think it only made people complain more.)

Oddly, given how many people are encountering bugs, I never did. I did have it lagging, right at the very end, so that I was afraid to make any more employees. But not 'til the end, and nothing else untoward ever happened. (Firefox, Windows 7).

Posey, I was wondering the same thing, and I went through the whole game and didn't find anything. And since the last achievement involves

finishing all the research

I think we have to conclude that our poor researchers got left out of the office upgrades. You were nicer to yours than I was to mine, though. I just kept them in the basic offices the whole time.

I'm really hoping there will be an update to this game. Despite the glitches (had another one where any cat I put on the second floor somehow teleported into the leftmost office) and unpleasant save feature, it was really fun!

Not that anyone asked, but my two suggestions would be having the ability to move decor items and cats into other offices instead of permanently placing them somewhere, and to be able to select a worker and send them directly to a problem. It would've helped my eternally smoking computer problem that I mentioned earlier, and it would've helped on many occasions where I had janitors sitting and waiting at their desks for their shifts to end, but overflowing trash cans in other offices because the janitor who had been working on them earlier left.

You're right, there is no specific researcher's office. If you want to upgrade your researchers, you CANNOT upgrade the office that you've put your researchers in

I have to say I loved this game, but it was incredibly buggy and laggy. At the end of the game, I was forced to set the quality to low and remove all of the bubbles, and I also had to refresh the browser every once in a while when the game got "stuck," (i.e. a worker got trapped between floors or I couldn't activate any of the menu buttons). Notwithstanding the bugs though, great game and fun concept!

It's too bad that there are so many glitches, it gets really annoying after a while. I have trouble with janitors and IT techs not working even though there is work to be done, and the time control doesn't always seem to increase the people's speed. The researchers "discover" things they have already created, and concerning the "goals" part, the game refuses to accept that I have "5 IT techs or more" even though I have 8. I've even tried to fire them and then rehiring them, twice, without result. Etc etc...

I didn't come across any glitches…I think. There was this one time when a bunch of employees wouldn't leave even though it was like, 1am. Then I discovered that I had somehow put a bathroom on the roof and they…I dunno, needed to pee or something. I deleted it and they left. I also never seemed to be able to get past the Super Build achievement, even though I upgraded all my offices appropriately…
My "strategy"-

I know the intention of the game was to build up up up, but I only had about 16 offices for most of the game, put side by side so the building was only 8 floors high. I never found much of a use for the Building Height research, obviously. Building this way made it a LOT easier to see and manage what was going on. I had 8 janitors and 4 of every other specialized employee, along with, of course, a crapload of workers.

…Who would buy skyhooks or a fire pole without an achievement telling them to? Pshhh, I would! I put one on one side of the building and one on the other. I. Love. Them. They're really quick and there's no traffic issue at all, ergo no need for any freaking elevators, or poor employees complaining about noise.

Once I researched everything except WORLD DOMINATION, I built 10 extra offices (yesss), filled them with fully-promoted researchers, and unlocked it in about 3 days.

I know this probably isn't that low or anything, but I finished in about 30 days.

I'd also like to know what the Tower Infrastructure upgrade does - in fact, given how fast research went, I wanted a little page of upgrades, so I could see what was available. Also, some kind of readout on why a worker is unhappy would be awesome; a log of the unhappy bubbles would suffice.

To everyone having trouble getting things to work on the third floor:

The elevator shafts can be extended. Use the little arrows at the top and bottom of the elevator and drag it up / down to the required floors. You can have a single elevator shaft going up 120 floors if you want.

In my experience if an employee on the 3rd floor or above finds an elevator that doesn't take them all the way to the floor they're after they'll ignore it (poor / broken route planning). For this reason I'd suggest having all your elevators go all the way from bottom to top.

Extra carriages in conjunction with the first one or two shaft upgrades are a cheap way to boost capacity until you need and can afford
the tubes.

Two or three shafts can service a full-width building 5 floors high, probably up to 10 or so with enough extra carriages.

Fun game. Buggy, but nothing that can't be dealt with by a reload after midnight.

I think the only way to solve your problem is to copy the savegame somewhere else and start a new game, once you want to play the previous savegame, you just have to copy that second savegame and paste back the first one.

Do it back and forth so that both your children can play their own game.

The savegame is in a hidden folder called "AppData"

Here's a spreadsheet calculating the number of offices you can have per floor, depending on how many bathroom and gyms/cafes:

...............# bathrooms:
........0.......1.......2.......3
#gym/
cafe
0.......9.07....8.4.... 7.73....7.07
1.......7.73....7.07....6.4.....5.73
2.......6.4.....5.73....5.07....4.4
3.......5.07....4.4.....3.73....3.07
4.......3.73....3.07....2.4.....1.73

Use the whole number only, of course.
The fractions show how much is wasted (e.g. 7.73 means 7 offices, and 73% of 15 units wasted).

This assumes the total width is 136 units; each office is 15 wide, bathroom 10 wide, gym/cafe 20 wide. Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'll repost.
Seems to me, best is to have a floor of only 9 offices; or 8 Ofc and 1 bath; next 7 ofc, 1 bath, and 1 gym/cafe; and after that you're just getting 5 or less offices per floor so probably no point considering those combinations).

Also note how the wasted space (0.07, 0.40, or 0.73) moves along diagonals, in the table.

Great game, despite minor bugs!
From my initial observations:
I'm wondering if it'll be more efficient if the IT people (and the supervisors) can walk quickly to the workers. So I'd like to have those offices near the middle of a floor, so that they can quickly reach the other workers. Does anyone know if this helps? I would think about having something like this:

[-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-]
[-Of-][-Of-][-Cafe-][-Su-][-Of-][-IT-][BR][-Of-][-Of-]
[-Of-][-Of-][BR][-IT-][-Of-][-Su-][--Gy--][-Of-][-Of-]
[-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-][-Of-]

where [-Of] is a workers office, [-IT-] is IT office, [-Su-] supervisor/managers'.
With suitable elevators too of course, since the IT/supervisors need to manage the floors above/below them too.

Will that be more efficient, or do the IT staff and supervisors just randomly go all over the building anyway?
Also what about Janitors: my first impression is SEEMS they do NOT really visit their own offices before working? so their offices might as well be located out of the way, without interfering with the rest of the workers? (Except of course that IT staff might need to be close enough to fix the janitors' computer if thye break)

Tip:
while scrolling with arrow keys, hold down SHIFT... this increases the scrolling speed.

Big item for the features wish-list; zoom in, zoom out function is really needed here.

To everyone having the "can't select stuff" problem: I was playing on Kongregate and I changed from the "Game" tab to the "Chat" tab, then everything worked fine! If there are similar functions on the website your games were hosted on, try clicking those. If not, try things like minimizing the page, opening new tabs, things like that.

In regards to upgraded offices, if for example I upgrade an office for IT's. will that only influence the IT's in that room?

To Steve's question:
As far as I can see, upgrading an office (e.g. upgrading it to an IT office/Lair) will affect ONLY the IT personal assigned to THAT office.

It might affect his functioning, and might also affect your ability to upgrade HIM. I.e., for some kinds of employees, e.g. supervisors, I see that the highest levels of upgrades can be done ONLY if they are in an office which has been upgraded to the highest level.

Apart from that, I read on some other comments, that an office which has been upgraded, is easier to clean, or gets dirty less easily.

Loved this little game! It reminded me of style of Theme Hospital. Does anyone else have any recommendations for similar games besides Sim Tower?

What happened to the game?! I just discovered it yesterday, and was up to nearly 300 employees and on my 25th floor or so when the game went black. Now Armor Games is displaying this message, "This Version is Currently Locked to Armor Games" is there somewhere else I can play??

[Try emptying your browser cache and reload the game. It's loading just fine for me right now from Armor Games. -Jay]
