    @Teeceezy

    You say you want to fix it but are not sure how it will be done....

    You call it an improvement....

    I don't think it can be considered an improvement ...this is a fix...a part of the game you overlooked that went wrong...unless stealing my earned gas crates was intentional.....

    It's so freaking rude!! I pay you $ and you take my earned gas crates away and then when we ask about it and get no response for so long, and keep asking, you call it spam????? Really? Ok so you were joking? But thing is...with so much bs being handed out by this game, I don't think joking about MY MONEY is amusing...

    Your response is about 8 out of 10 on the lame scale and has me throwing things and stomping my feet...I'm on the verge of a major tantrum here...

    My question is...WHEN are you going to stop stealing my gas crates from me....not HOW!!!
    I don't care about how!! If it takes you rolling in honey and laying on an ants nest, or getting one of your techs to tweak some code....I don't care and I don't wanna know...

    I just want to be able to buy gas for the challenge and not get my gas crates ripped off...

    WHEN? @Teeceezy WHEN?

    And btw @BttlOpener the gas crates are earned, like any other crate...

    It's like if I were to purchase a bundle with a certain piece of gear, and then that same gear turns up in a crate I've earned, and then it's taken away cos I paid for one already...how is that not stealing?

    @tammy agreed, it is particularly annoying when the gas is received as a gift from a guild member.

    Let's allow us to scrap gas for gold like gear for xp.
    Problem solved. 1 gas is worth 2 gold
    @Teeceezy ?
    It's easy to implement..Just put some good will on it.

    @locbuck yup and not only that...if I BUY gold, then spend said gold to open extra crates while I'm on a PAID FOR BOOST, and said PAID for crates contain gas and are taken away, it is staight up theft.

    @tammy

    I understand that. It is frustrating as hell when that gas create opens on a booster. All I stated was that I understand why the gas doesn't stack. A fix would be an alternative, say xp or supplies. Even better would be an equal radio count, say for a gold create, instead of 4 gas, you gain 4 radios.
  • tammytammy Member Posts: 1,716
    @BttlOpener no, you actually said you AGREE with NG about not stacking gas while on boost.

    Lmao @Neil_J

    Gimme those pillows!!! I'll pass on the morphine and just puff my way to a zen state :wink:

    This has actually been an issue for me since forever...I think the first time I ever complained about something on the forum was this gas stealing...that was another thread somewhere way way back...

    @tammy

    I was the first person to comment on this thread and explained it there. You are right, I did say agree but I also explained why. It isn't right, but that (hopefully not for long) is the price paid for the unlimited gas. If you check many of my other posts, I am not a huge fan of the way NG has been 'developing' the game.

    Lmao sorry @Conan1976 ...and everyone else..

    It's out of character for me, but with all the bugs and nerfs and stuff we put up with, I think this one should be addressed quickly...they are directly messing with my purchase...

    due to my purchase, I have my earned and bought crates taken away...

    that is blatant theft

    And just really really mean!!!!

    :(

    I'm buying gas tonight...I always buy it second day of challenge...this time I'm gonna take ss of every crate of gas that I earn through rewards, or using my purchased gold...that NG will take away from me...

    Lol now that I've given a heads up to the devs that are watching all of us so closely (see their job ads), I prolly won't see many...but I'll post them just the same...

    I don't think @tammy's kisses & hugs are heartfelt. I'm just not feeling the love shine thru <3
  • tammytammy Member Posts: 1,716
    Lmao @MizTy

    I always try to give hugs and kisses...and they are always genuine...cos even if I disagree...or someone disagrees with me...we play a game together...I've met peeps from all around the world playing games..but I find no matter where someone is from...or how angry/upset they are...caring helps peeps find their calm place...me included :smile:

    glad to see so many fellow players agree with this subject.
    Still have the straight opinion that this issue need to be verified a.s.a.p.

    As long as I don't get my hard earned extra gas while I'm on gas booster, I'll not purchase it again (everybody shall be doing the same).

    Still waiting for a promt solution. Either they're telling us it will stay the same (we're not receiving the extra gas) or they fix that (maybe) visual bug and we'll get what we deserve.

    When going on unlimited gas i've noticed 2 events are triggered. One is that the gas bar on the top left of the screen changes from a number to the word "full". The other is that missions such as challenge, exploration, story & outpost (basically anything that uses gas) the costs drop to 0.

    When we use any type of resources, the amount we used is subtracted from the amount we have. If I have 2.5 million xp and I upgrade a weapon from 21 to 22 it uses 1.33 million xp. 2.5 million - 1.33 million = 1.17 million left. When my TG's or Supplies are full it doesn't say the word "full" it still shows the number in which I have.

    Now I'm not a coder. I don't know if these are 2 independant events happening simultaneously or if it's 1 event (the cost for missions requiring gas turns to 0 AND AT THE SAME TIME gas changes from a number to the word "full").

    If when on unlimited gas and the costs for things are 0, I would think that if the gas itself didn't say the word "full" and was kept with the original number we had at the time of purchase, that any gas found in any crates would add to that number. It works just fine when we have the herd event.

    We wake up and kill walkers at the wall. They drop gas. The gas that's found gets added to the total number of gas we have. If the costs for things are 0 then when you subtract 0 from any number, the number is unchanged.

    I believe the cause of this issue is when you add 2 gas to the word "full" it doesn't know what to do with it.

    I thought that i read somewhere that what might be happening is the 0 for mission gas needed is just a visual effect and that ultimately it's subtracted from the max number of gas you have and then immedietly re-added while your in the mission. So I guess the only real way to test that is by someone playing a challenge mission level that would cost more gas then they could actually hold.

    Either way, I believe the way to fix this is to remove the coding that tells the gas display to say the word "full" and keep an actual number. If the cost of gas used on things is changed to 0, and the gas display on the top is equal to the actual gas we have, then when you add +2 or +4 from crates it would increase.

    This is much easier (I assume) to resolve if these are 2 different independant displays.

    BUT......

    On the other end, and I understand this isn't a popular explanation, when you play on unlimited gas for 24 hours it's during that time only. In theory if you are able to stockpile gas from crates while on unlimited gas then you could potentially play a second day (or at least extend your "unlimited" playing by a few extra hours)

    If there's no solution to stopping gas from showing up in crates while on unlimited gas then there should be a solution to stack gas while on unlimited gas. The fact that it's taken so long to correct this, I believe that the solution that NG is looking into is to stop having gas show up while on unlimited gas. 0 subtracted from anything keeps the original number. That would be a relatively quick fix I would assume especially since that's what normally happens (have full gas and start an exploration mission and close the app; come back an hour later and complete it (your gas would have refilled to your max again) and then open crates and get gas; your total will exceed the maximum your gas tank can carry). Why it suddenly changes once on "unlimited" boggles my mind except for that word "full".

    Just my $.02
