    @ morgassshhhkkk:

    I was just making the point that early on the cranny is great - cheap CP generation, and protection of resources.

    More than about two weeks in the game, if you still need to build crannies, I don't see you ever making that much difference.

    And BEFORE anyone starts dismembering my comment. I'm aware that its not 24hrs, its between 48 and 36 hours depending on level, so cut that figure in half, still over 800k in resources..

    and last I checked the cost for a great celeb is... actually, I'll check...

    ok, it's under 102k.... so pretty cost effecitve. if you go by the numbers...
    But hang on morgasshk - you may be missing the point. It's not 834 resources per CP; it's 834 resources per "CP per day". In other words your one-off payment gets you 1 CP per day every single day for the rest of the game; whereas your party just gets a one-off 'lump sum' of CP.

    So for about 20 000 resources you can throw a small party and get a one-off 500 CP; or you could build (say) 4 crannies, get 24 CP per day, and in 21 days you'd have more CP than your party gave you, plus more CP to come, AND have the benefit of your crannies. Or similar argument for any other building. And the great party is even less resource-efficient.

    Will do.

    Any thoughts on the image-posting problem? Or is there some clever way to do a table with tags? I'm not very HTML-literate, I'm afraid....

    Thanks!

    O goody! I looked at all of those wonderful things & now have cranny #3, with room for more: think outside of the square! Do you like my gaulish village {Oppidum}?

    But once it is level 10 it is only earning to 6 per day, whereas another building per day will earn more so the cranny has awful time efficiency.
