Thanks for your feedback, really appreciate your comments
There's a slight error with the logic in rising price auctions. If two or more people bid the same amount, the first bidder in at the price should take priority, but at the moment the first bidder in at a price is the first to be outbid at that price. This isn't a massive bug - it's more of a minor irritation.
This is the way I had it working originally, but changed it after looking at some videos of speed auction tv where it looks like it runs as 'first in, first out'. If you go to around 3:10 on this video
someone uploaded, a £1 bidder joins below the top £5 bid, but above the existing £1 bids, pushing them down the list. Did sit-up perhaps change the bidding system at some point? Or does bid tv work differently to speed auction tv?
And secondly, creating the auction, an impossible quantity will sometimes appear - for example, it's impossible to sell anything with a quantity of 2 or fewer - and a few of the pre-generated lots have small quantities. Because of the quantity limitations in rising price auctions, most of the pre-generated lots end up needing to be tweaked to fit the restrictions.
Ah cool, didn't think of that. I'll add that to the list for next update
Just to throw a couple of suggestions into the hat myself - would it be possible to save changes to particular graphics sets? For instance, instead of having to re-edit the custom ticker for each separate auction, the ability to change the default text would just make things a little bit smoother.
I also feel the rising price bidding could do with being slightly more active - there are periods of 2-3 minutes at a time where nobody is bidding, even on massive quantities. Even if it's less realistic than the rising price auctions sit-up had by the end of their time, a slight tweak to the algorithm would make the auctions feel more engaging.
Cool, I'll add these suggestions to the list
Would be good if we could get this set recreation with this music.
But ideally minus Peter Simon barely stringing a sentence together, saying 'come on' or 'leave it at 'ome', doing some kind of camp walk to the gavel, or falling flat on his face.
"0906....just buy....090........goodluckifyougeddit" There probably won't be new studios in the next update, but maybe in future updates I could look at adding more studios in. Currently working on adding support for choice auctions, and managed to add support for the graphics collapsing to the bottom of the screen cutting off the tickers, and the ability to change the DOG
in the top right of the screen. I don't have an ETA on the next update yet, but when it's ready I'll post a Mac link too
