I just finished upgrading my eco workshop last week and since then I could never use computer table and soldering table anymore. There's no action available on both tables and the only table that gives me 125 points is the sewing machine. It sucks that after I bought the last pack to finish the upgrade and I can't even use them anymore. I have to keep going back home just so I can use the sewing machine. It's wasting time.

I noticed that the chairs and Sim always occupying 2 available actions, but they're low PT and meaningless.

I encountered it back in November after getting the trophy but never really gave much thought to it. I hope Firemonkeys can fix it.

I don't think this is a bugm I think simply there is no action on those items. I will pass it on as a suggestion

@EA_DragonsEye Both items definitely have actions and I believe this constitutes a bug for the following reasons:

  • It's inconsistent with how the game allots other Workshop actions.
  • Unlocking and upgrading those actions become meaningless because they're practically inaccessible.
  • This incentivizes informed players to avoid finishing Workshop upgrades.

 

Here's a summary of the inconsistency from the first point:

  • From Stage 1 to 6, the most energy-efficient action is always available as an initial choice.
  • During Stage 7 the above holds true and players can access the computer immediately (150 points for 5 energy).
  • After finishing Stage 7, the computer and soldering table are no longer initial options. That spot is instead given back to the sewing machine (125 points for 5 energy).
    • The computer and soldering machine become available only as 5th choice actions, which removes any incentive to utilize them.

My bad, I flagged it as a bug. Thanks for the explanation @Osalo!

Thanks for all the work you put into managing the Bug Reports @EA_DragonsEye!

 

In case the bug reviewer want to reproduce the sequence to reach the 150 pt action, here it is as documented by the lovely @yani_tsm:

  • Sewing machine (125 pt)
  • Painting station (100 pt)
  • Recycled goods bin (100 pt)
  • Woodwork area (75 pt)
  • Soldering kit (150 pt)

All those steps must be performed without leaving the Parkside.
