Thread: "Boost" and/or "Upgrade" to speed up boats.

  1. #1

    "Boost" and/or "Upgrade" to speed up boats.

    How about offering:

    1. A limited-time "Boost", purchased from the Lab with gems, to speed up the boats? Or, an upgrade from the Academy of Industry, that starts with 5% faster and increases as new ingots are added?

    2. A limited-time "Boost", purchased from the Lab with gems, to shorten the growing-time of crops - much like the one that shortens manufacturing by 30%? Or, an upgrade from the Academy of Industry, that starts with 5% less growing time and increases as new ingots are added?

    I really believe either one of these (PREFERABLY BOTH) would be a great addition to the Township game! Especially during Regattas!👍

    Thanks,

    There are "special boosters" that, unfortunately, you cannot buy with gems but are available as "prizes" in some events or offered in the yacht club for purchase with regatta tokens. These are often referred to as "purple boosters" due to the color of the background of the booster.

    "Smart Navigation" cuts ship travel time in half (-50%) for 1 day.

    "Shortcut" cuts train travel time in half (-50%) for 1 day.

    "Rich Fields" reduces growing time for crops by 40% for 1 day.

    There is no speed reduction for planes but "Profitable Flight" doubles the coins for filling the crates for 1 day.

    Since these are already in the game, a lot of people would like to see them available for purchase rather than as prizes.

    Pretty sure you can also speed up your boats in the Academy of Industry already.

    We can, but it is one of those purple coupons that we get some other way. We can't just buy it with gems whenever we need it.

    The same is true for the one that speeds up crops. It may exist somewhere, but if you don't happen to have one when you want it and can't buy one, it adds up to the same thing as not existing then.

    Here is a link to the Wiki page showing all boosters that are available in the labratory at all times as well as ones earned as rewards:

    Unfortunately, no...that is a special purple booster called "Smart Navigation" which is only earned as a reward or can purchased from the Yacht Club.

    Nightrook is correct, the ships can be upgraded in the Academy of Industry to reduce the return time up to 50%.

    Nothing to "speed up"....only increase the yield of the 2nd or 3rd item.

    There are different upgrades available at different upgrade levels.
    When you go to the upgrade window, on the first option (time), you will see a star with a number on it, that is the level required to upgrade for time. You must first reach that level to be able to continue upgrading that particular attribute (same goes for the others).
