Stadiums/Olympic Parks projects at a temporarily halt

If you’ve seen the “message of the day” on the server you may notice that players have been instructed to temporarily halt construction on current and new Stadiums and Olympic Parks.

This is due to the vast increase in the number of these builds within the past few weeks. The total number of stadiums on the server has approximately quadruped in just this short time.

To allow server staff to discuss how we should approach this increase, we’ve asked players to stop working on their stadium projects until this is resolved. We expect to announce our results before or during the scheduled general staff meeting due to be held this Saturday, March 1st at 9pm GMT. As with recent staff meetings, there will be a chance to listen in to our discussion.

The stadiums are an issue because like airports, stadiums take up a lot of space, and you may have noticed that free building space is beginning to dwindle and until we install a new world there’s not much we can do. We’re also seeing a large number of Olympic Parks being built. The MRT Olympics is an event organised by members but players need to bid in order to host the games. Building the parks before being a confirmed host has been seen as unfair to other bidders who may have the city capable of hosting, but by that point Olympic stadiums may be so common there may not be the space to build one, or worst case scenario we’d have to prohibit them. But we don’t want to do that, hence why we’re enforcing this temporary construction block until we can work out a better alternative for everyone.

But don’t worry, regardless of the outcome you will not lose your build and will 99% be able to finish it in some way or another. We thank you for your patience and you’ll hear back within the next few days.

Thanks,

Thomas
