the roof collapse will happen at a distance of (from memory )7 squares from a rock or built wall, but I have had wall to wall gaps of up to 10 but usually leave only 8 or 9 squares between posts as a bit of a buffer

in the email you received, there is a link to the download (limit of (i think 5 times), BUT if you download AND save the zip, you can copy the zip and extract the contents on MANY computers

in my experience when SELLING to traders , you drag the center number (between the colony stock and trader stock and under the 'drag to trade' text to the right (==>>>) and the units of stock count will increase, and the cash(with the arrow pointed in the oposite direction) will increase at the rate of x(the buy OR sell depending upon which is happening) TIMES the stock quantity, eg selling food (stockpile 6000 )to a farm trader (pays $5 per unit of food but SELLS food at $8 per unit) that has $7000, I buy the stock that I want then drag the food stock until I am either satisfied with cleaning out the trader's currency or am LOW on food (typically less than 50), and when all the trading balancing is done THEN I click the trade button

tynan, I have seen several NEW laptops that my customers have bought with 15.6 inch screens and win8 that have only a 768 line screen res, and I find them frustrating as the taskbar hides the buttons on the bottom of the install dialogs for most software (the brands that I remember are toshiba, dell, lenovo, sony, hp), so it might be worth while to see if it is only a small adjustment or not for 768 res.

depends upon how many METRES of rock is being discussed vs the thickness of the "grade-z shielding" and reletive efficiency/cost of each

regarding the faraday cage, I would like the UNDERGROUND areas to not be affected by the solar flares as earth and rock are fairly good shielding materials for EMF

I have used the double grab & drag a few times for smaller quantities like 200-400, BUT when I want to sell 2000-2500 food to a combat or industrial supplier to clean them out of all their stock, it STILL takes about 3 minutes to get to the approx area of quantity ( and in the games where this is an issue I usually have a food stockpile for 20,000 or MORE food)

a couple of small suggestions( but probably not so easy to program) for the trade window

(1) to allow typing in of trade quantities as well as the drag to alter quantities,

(2) speed of adjustment of quantity relates to mouse movement distance  ie move a small distance outside the trade window get slow increase rate, move to the edge of the game window, get fast (perhaps x10) increase rate

reason for suggestions when trading hundreds/thousands of resources it gets very boring to keep holding the mouse button down off screen and still only go up by one unit per tick
tynan, I could not even see a mouse cursor OR any other items on a completely BLACK screen, nor could I alt-tab to other programs or windows, BUT I did get to run the game in a windows mode by editing the registry before runningit after the fourth re-boot. a possible fix might be to make the windowed mode the default
I am running on a i3 3.4ghz system w7-32bit w nvidia gf430 w latest whql drivers and when I try to 1 switch to window mode, or 2 change resolution all I get is a completely BLACK screen and nothing other than a reboot will get anything visible on the display, and yes I also tried to alt-tab to another task, ctrl-alt-del to task manager, waiting for 20 minutes, but the same comp does play other stratagy games like fallen enchantress supcom & similar without ANY issues

dazza, it might just be you, as I am currently downloading at 303kb (admittedly a LOT slower than my internet connection) but a lot higher than your download speed
