repair all?

when you rent out houses and you have to repair them is there a way to repair all the houses at once? or do you have to go one by one?

The biggest flaw I've seen in this game (IMO) is the lack of a repair all button...

Certainly a very logical and intuitive idea isn't it? Yet the developers decided not to include one.

Unfortunately, of all the nuances and grand posturing, this is one specific item PM mentioned would be changed. He mentioned that they specifically wanted to make property management more difficult than Fable 2's "fire and forget" style for lack of a better term. The goal is to force you to pay attention to your properties or suffer the consequences - which it does. I agree its insipid and don't understand why they want to specifically make the game tedious in such ways to detract from the enjoyment, but there it is.

When I play GameDev story on my iphone, My game company has 6 positions.

2 Story Writers
2 Graphics Artists
2 Music Composers
0 Coders/Programmers

Apparently, PM is using the same strategy I do.

Except I dont release the game until *ALL* bugs are gone.

I understand the idea of making it more difficult..so it feels like you are earning the money..but it should have been somewhere in the middle.

Maybe a repair all per map/area. At least then you'd still be required to "micromanage" them by going to each map etc..but would take some of the completely useless tediousness out of it..

Thats why many players just buy Shops not homes..

Thanks BBilbo01. Hadn't heard of that game before, checked it out and it sound awesome. I love addicting little games like that and am going to download it as soon as I get home.

Yeah nice going lionhead! Plus it would have been nice to know this before I bought all the houses in (i forgot the name of the first city), now I got to hunt down all of them and sell them!
