How Does Dating Work
« on: May 30, 2009, 09:00:03 am »

I was wondering how dating works because it seems a bit random just guessing whether to press a or b

Thanks in advance Adam

a or b is whether to spend the money or not?

The money never hurts. It always helps your chances. But it never guarantees success.

Your best bonus will be the cheap vacation, but you'll lose control of the character for a week and they'll be removed from their squad.

Which can be a pain. However, as Jonathan said, it helps your chances, at the cost of the character for a week. (But it's cheap!)

Pfft. You don't even need to do that. Just try B until you succeed.

I do that until I get 100K... Then I go on a spending spree.

Maybe your amount of money should have a hidden bonus modifier to the chance of success of all options? (Except D and E obviously.)

More to A, moderate bonus to B and a HEUG bonus to C.

Do you mean just how much you have in reserve affecting your dating chances? Why would you get a bonus for money you have, if you don't spend it?

Impression.

Think about it. How many ugly rich people are dating super models?

I would take that more in the direction that the clothes they wear, and the car they're assigned to, could make a better impression. So if you look rich and spend money, that's more impressive than if you look like you crawled out of the gutter and have blood on your shirt.

I thought that's how it already works...

But yeah. If you look rich, HOW rich you are should matter.

Being rich doesn't impress someone if you're still a complete cheapskate. If anything, it makes you look LESS sympathetic.

There should be an option for an expensive vacation.

That is why I said the bonus for B is SMALL while the bonus for A is bigger and C is massive.
