ive been at it for a while and i am secure with knowledge of basic operations of the combine. however i am having a hell of a time with building these damn fountains. ive built hundreds of these things, but now it seems i am stumped. i dont think its a bug, but i cant see where im being the idiot. here is the info:
ON FACTION OWNED CITY: YES
BUILDER: YES(1 builder with me, outside of the ship at the buid site)
PROPER INFO FIELDS: YES(name of fountain, owned by...., etc.)
ROADS ON TWO SIDES: YES
SUFFICIENT RM ON MY SHIP: YES DAMMIT!!!(Sorry but this is where the confusion starts. ive got enuff for 40 fountains))
RMs OWNED BY FACTION: YES
then i click "NEXT STEP" and this is what it shows:
Materials required to construct Fountain
Material Required Selected Need
insufficient materials 5 0 5
insufficient materials 29 0 29
insufficient materials 11 0 11
insufficient materials 7 0 7
it says i havent selected the materials? im sure this is something pretty stupid that im
doing wrong, but ive never "selected" material for a build. ive always just had it with me. an i dont even see anywhere i could select an RM or an amount. any suggestions would be very helpful. (cant build a freakin fountain....MAN this is embarassing). and please, please, please dont come at me with the RTFM thing. i have read the manual and i still dont see where my error is. thnx again.
A little while a go a change was made to construction so that in order to build you had to have construction privs and crucially you also needed faction RM assign privs as well. Perhaps you haven't had them updated recently.
If the RM's are owned by the faction, try assigning them to you, not sure if that helps but that is what ah had to do (was building on behalf of mah faction for another faction, was running into the same problems and the leader ended up assigning the RMs to me and everything was good to go)
problem solved.......Teyapacan, Ka'rla and Tiali, thank u for ur time and ur grace. as u know the slab decay clock is running and u ladies have saved us valuabe time.
u are obviously far more experienced than i, but if ever were to need my assistance, feel free to ask.
it was the assign faction rm privs 2. i had the construction privs and never had a problem but apparently if i needed rm privs before, i didnt know i had them. they were given to me once i contacted my faction leader. thnx again.
