I've gotten the CM base in both of my cities and only need one or two more upgrades to take my existing and the new CMs to level 7. With the number of ingredients I have on hand and are still to come, I'll likely try for a 3rd, but I expect to fall short (See what I did there?) without diamonds, which I likely won't spend.Awesome! My main city still has hope.
This is good advice. I am at the point of having so many Supplies, I never have to worry about running out. There isn't an occasion in which I fall short.If you are struggling paying out 52k supplies you need to slow down. Stop progressing on the tech tree, optimize your city, and build/level GB.
I get your point but if you run out of a resource, now you've just added an addition resource need: time. Stockpiles are always better IMO, especially for Events, as you can immediately respond to any need rather than having to plan and wait for new resources to be produced.No point having a huge stockpile really. If you run out of a resource it means you're actually using it to its fullest potential. Saving something for a rainy day in FoE doesn't really make sense. What do you forsee needing to suddenly use a billion supplies on if you've saved up that much? Or 50,000 goods? I'm sure you can some up with some hypothetical 'well, I could use them for this...' scenario but that situation is never going to come up so it just seems pointless to me.
Maybe I'm the odd one, but I don't find this true. I'm producing roughly 350 forge points per day which takes up nearly all my space, but those buildings don't produce any supplies or very minimal amounts. At least nowhere near enough to do research in the VF. I don't know what buildings you have that can produce a surplus of supplies, but I need to build production buildings to at least stockpile enough for research.UBQ orgy, multi Era tech sprinting, repeated massive city remodeling. All things I've done in the last year. Maybe I'm unusual.
Should a city dedicate itself to stockpiling Supplies? Not really, a well designed city and active play will generate a surplus of Supplies even without a lot of mundane Supply Buildings.
You're not being elititst. We started about the same time, but you;re a lot further along then I am.I took a look at your city and I can definitely say that I produced more supplies than you even before building supply buildings. Not meaning to be elitist or anything, but in my experience, it seems like VF really ramps up in supply/coin costs.
No individual building takes a ton of space, but I do dedicate it primarily to producing forge points. My CF is level 53, but I don't actively do recurring quests which probably impacts supply production a bit, at most I do is 2 per day, both at collection time.I can;t see your city. What is taking up so much room?
Self control? Understand that leftover Apples and Caramel do you no good? Realizing you'll get more in the long run spending all your event currency than leaving a bunch of it unused?But how can I pass up the really good stuff? (Which almost never requires apples or caramel.)
sorry disagree economics 101 have a nest egg for those things that are important. ROI is ut most the items being offered are not worth the supply cost. sorry I just dont care for the quest need to rethink them for those of us who pride our supply countIf you are struggling paying out 52k supplies you need to slow down.

Also Economics 101: anticipate your future needs and produce accordingly.sorry disagree economics 101 have a nest egg for those things that are important.
That's fine, nothing wrong with deciding that. Value is subjective.ROI is ut most the items being offered are not worth the supply cost. sorry I just dont care for the quest
Instead of demanding that the game adjust to you, might I suggest the other way around? As others have said, at a certain point most cities have no problem producing copious supplies, enough to manage these events and quests without blinking. If your city is young that won't be the case, of course, but that situation shouldn't last long, just through regular game play. Then the value to you of the event goodies might change.need to rethink them for those of us who pride our supply count
If successfully completing events is important to you, you need to build that into your nest egg. If you feel that a building like the September Cottage is not worth the supplies the quests will cost you. Don't play the event, or stop playing when you hit the supply quest. Regardless, I agree with @UBERhelp1, if the supply cost of the quests is an issue, it's an issue you've created for yourself, it's not the quest.sorry disagree economics 101 have a nest egg for those things that are important.
