I feel like there should be a warning when spending a big amount of cash. I was just collecting some buildings income when I accidentally tapped the IRS building and spend 7 million cash. Really not a fan of what happend there, even if I have quite some money left its unacceptable that I doesn't give me a warning, besides I could've used that cash for other things like buying items for my town aswell as getting the redwood tree or money mountain upgraded.

Ironically, you just increased your tap radius which helps avoid accidents like that.

    Yet it cost me like over a half of my total cash. Not worth it

    Don't quite follow, so just wondering...

    Wouldn't that depend on how close his IRS is to w/e building he taps?
    This is our last dance. This is ourselves under pressure.

    Yes, but if he knows what building he needs to avoid, he can easily tap a safe distance from it knowing that his radius will still reach the buildings he needs to collect from.

    I agree about the warning. The same thing happened to me except I only spent about half a million. I was tapping something else, but it accidentally selected the IRS building and before I knew what happened, my money was gone. We shouldn't have to isolate buildings just to avoid accidental taps. Because accidental taps can happen anywhere and anytime: while dragging the screen around or automatic scrolling as the game likes to do sometimes.

    Mine is fully upgraded and has been for a while, so maybe I'm remembering wrong. But don't you have to tap it to pop up option to spend? Isn't that the warning?

    I tapped my IRS building once and this is what appeared:

    Don't you get this message when you tap your IRS building then?

    You do but sometimes you tap a bit fast and you double hit the IRS or something else. That's what I had, I hit the IRS without noticing we within a week one I had also tapped the green box.

    Why not just store it? If it's not worth the use, what's the point of having it out? I'd say your main options are to just finish it off, or store it. EA took forever to get donut confirm option put in, I would think in game cash one would be pointless. Its on significantly less items in the game. The most expensive ones are the IRS, Swimming Pools, Money Mountain and Redwood. There might be something else, but not entirely sure. I would not want to see this pop up just by setting up channel 6, the farm, drive in, Kwik-E-Mart card, unemployment office or any other action activated with cash. The implementation of this functionality would have to apply to all cases where in game cash is spent. Just like the donut one. Can't have the donut one on just speed ups, has to apply to where donuts are spent, including from the store.

    Well i meant the upgrade is not worth the cash. I think its an useful building but in my opinion the tap radius was big enough.

    Also I do think its possible to add a pop up when people are going to spend 1 million or more, as that is quite a big amount of cash.

    Not suggesting at all that your idea is a bad one. I’d be okay with it. But I think that for most users it’s an idea that’s pretty far down on their list of wants and needs.

    I think that every time someone makes a mistake, it's not EA's job to modify the game so that you can't ever make that mistake again. It was a mistake on your part, you simply mis-tapped, no big deal. Just take responsibility and move on. I'm not trying to be ugly about it, but, that mindset is like most people in America.....I don't want to have to manage myself, so make the government manage me for me. Blech.

    People were saying the same thing before EA finally broke down and implemented the “confirm donut” button. I don’t think you’ll find too many users who think that was a bad move on EA’s part.

    I didn't say anything was a bad move. I just simply stated that I think people should take responsibility instead of thinking that the game needs to be changed to account for every possible mis tap If EA makes this change, great. But I think people shouldn't believe that EA should make the change. It's just my opinion.

    How would EA know the change is desired if no one voices a complaint?

    Some people always just have to be so rude about anything anyone says. And some people always have to be contrary. If someone started a thread saying this was a bad idea, probably those same people would say, hey wait that would be a good thing.
    I think it's a good idea. The code would probably be similar to the code they already use for the donut confirmation, so I doubt it would be difficult to implement. And they could have an option in the settings that players could turn it off or on, just like donut spending.
    It would also be useful for buying expensive items from the store.
    I take more than my fair share of responsibility in life, but it's nice when you're playing a game to have a safeguard for little mistakes.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
    There is a safeguard - it takes 2 taps.
    Case closed.

    I did the same thing more than once before I fully upgraded it, my solution was to buy a strip of land and put the IRS away from the rest of my Springfield it worked great.

    i can understand wanting a safety, like for not spending donuts accidentally because it's real life cash.

    but the IRS building already IS a two-tap action. What you're asking for is a 3rd tap.

    if you just tap hastily, and make a mistake, that's your responsibility, not the game's. No one can write enough rules and engage enough safeties to protect you from yourself, if you're moving too fast to use them!

    i think you'll have to chalk this up to "annoyances". Kind of like switching christmas lights on when you didn't mean to. Then you have to go back and switch them off again.

    i hope you realize i'm not trying to be critical or contrary, neighboreeno. :wink:

    TIP:
    one thing you could try, is moving the building to one of the upper edges of the playfield. that would make the "floating tool" icon hover outside of the playfield, either over mountains or the unavailable green space. you'd have no reason to tap near it then!
