Hi Novus, thanks for all the info you gave those of us who were fortunate to able to attend, & for answering my questions. That was a tough session for you l'm sure? 5 New Q's for every 1 reply & impatient folk expecting imidiate replies. Very well handled by you guys imho. 

A very BIG Thanks has to go to "Alphazone" for the add without it I'd not have been blessed to participate.

As l remember you "HINTED" @ Novus Prime having the "POSSIBILITY" to earn rewards etc for the Home Tycoon game although nothing definite as yet. 

Being my 1st time @ a Q&A event, l foolishly forgot to take notes (lesson learned) & got too engrossed in the whole scene, although l do recall most of the text transcript  

Can you elaborate any further on this as having acquired level 30 a while ago l have nothing to gain there at this time (apart from leaderboard to which l don't have the time to mount a SERIOUS assault atm)?

Oh yes, almost forgot I asked about virtual cash been free to earn or having to buy??

You'll be pleased to hear the answer was........... YES you can earn free cash & NO you will NOT HAVE TO BUY (but there will be cash bundles to purchase too if desired). Which is great news for all.

For those that are having trouble reading the above negativity and drivel:
You can earn free cash in Tycoon to buy things :Winner:

Thanks, dp. I would have needlessly called your other ID out for no reason whatsoever, but alas you've been using the same ID forever :)

I'm quite looking forward to trying this. I'm also really glad that it will be free to use with the option of premium content. It means that everyone will have the chance to try it out. I know me though, i'll probably end up buying stuff for it xD

Some of them sound amazing the only put off I have is that 4th point. 

 

Also that sounds like a PSN type of game ... I'm just not sure all that would be smooth when playing in Home.

I attended the QA and I wrote down all his answers, I guess you can guess the questions if you read them:

 

You will able to earn Premium content.
The City uses a happiness meter for the population
You are able to expand the space by buying more ground if the city runs out of room
You have to buy the Home Tycoon space to start building
The game is closer to Sim City then Farmville
There will be HT clothes and rewards
You will be able to purchase premium currency bundles similar to Cutthroats
Friends can visit your City even if you are offline
You play the mayor of the City, which you start from scratch
You can walk in the city with your own avatar, not a avtar designed for the game, but your own!
You wont spend $ on temporary items, buildings you remove go back in inventory
The game will have a sort of progression system
You cant make make real cities
you can not alter the shape of the land
the game uses a grid system
You build from a birdseye view
You can zoom in and walk the streets
you and your friends can drive cars
the economy is based on your population and workforce
there is a beach
there will be Police missions (Car chases, but no shoot outs)
The game will be suitable for all ages
You can set the time of day, but it also has a day night cycle
weather effects, but only rain for now
you can buy land expansions and content packs
you can buy mission packs
you wont see people walking in the streets
there will be a huge train station that will function as a Hub to meet up and which conects to the city spaces
You will need to broker deals , buy land and get fundings to start building a building

This is sounding great so far.
I realise this is probably a silly question, as I'm sure this would be up there if it was answered, but was a release date mentioned at all?

Quick correction: that should be you DO NOT have to buy the space to start building! Home Tycoon will be free to play from the start -- no space to purchase before you can start creating your city.

 

Otherwise everything looks about right! Thanks blacklagoon for transcribing! I was so busy scrolling up to answer the backlog of questions that I didn't have much time to take notes. :)
