Paying rent to broke players

[Post New]by Acashy on Aug 22, 11 8:43 AM
Seems a bit odd that a player can go bankrupt and leave the game, yet still keep their land and charge rent from the remaining players.

They didn't as far as I could see. They would sell off their land before they went bankrupt

Acashy I noticed that too but only in the free play mode not in the challenge game, really annoying

Yup, same here. Didn't find any mistakes in the challenges (other than all the players being referred to as males, but I can live with that one ;p)

The credits show everyone except the "Editor", one Rachel Douglas, with obviously Russian (well, Cyrillic area at least) names. Too bad Ms. Douglas didn't deal better with those masculine pronouns and other weirdnesses of language.

I said in an earlier post that I love this game and still do. But the thing with a player going bankrupt with properties left on the board and still collecting rent is annoying.

It always seemed to be the first computer player, right next to my character, that had this problem. So, when setting up the game, I deleted the first computer player and then filled all the slots. All the computer players seemed to behave normally then. Don't know if this is a fix for everyone, but hope so.

Well, I did delete the first computer person next to me, just to see if it made a difference, as Dlindab said, and IT DID !! I can't believe it.

I created 4 computer people, and deleted the first one next to me, and played with the other 3 people. And when it came to the point where the first person wasn't able anymore to pay the rent, they sold their properties instead going bankrupt right away.

Now this is much more fun ! At least now the rest of us can buy up those empty places, AND we don't have to pay anymore.

So, thank you very much for the tip, Dlindab.
