Hospital Café / Re: Earthquakes

The main problem with earthquakes in Corsix is that the warning tremor hasn't been implemented in the game. You get no warning that an earthquake is going to happen; you have no time to replace your machines, especially if a big one comes because the camera has a seizure stopping you from clicking anything until the earthquake ends (when the damage has already been done).

Earthquakes hit you hardest early game, which is when many machines break under a dozen uses because they don't have improvements. But you also have to juggle so much else at the same time. You could always go for improvement research first, but at the same time you need to keep up with your death-trap pharmacy and your clinic research to stop the turn aways, along with not going bankrupt.  It's an annoying situation to get out of, that can only be stopped efficiently by consistently paging handymen when your machine has 6 or less uses - the max strength of an earthquake afaik, but I'm not sure.

Though if an earthquake destroys one of my machines, I just reload the last autosave and replace hardware. The fact that there's no warning beforehand makes me feel less guilty 'cheating'.   ::)
