Love the game, by the way. However, all of the sudden I'm experiencing a bug that makes it basically impossible to play the game. In both my saved games and any new games I start, the settings under the trade tab are broken. When I got into the trade tab, the tax and recruitment sliders are both bugged. In a new game, for example, the sliders start in the middle, however each has a second, slightly grayed and transparent slider stuck in position. The second, bugged tax slider is stuck at the far right and the tax rate is stuck at 100%, while the second, bugged recruitment slider is stuck at the far left, and the recruitment rate is stuck at 0%. If I attempt to change the tax slider (the seemingly non-bugged one) the actual tax rate doesn't change and is stuck at 100%. In addition, the two sliders seem to be pinned to one another in an inverse relationship. So, if I try to change the tax slider, the recruitment slider changes as well, but inversely.

Hopefully this description makes sense. Please help, I miss playing my game!

Thanks

Sounds like you're describing the new 'Managed' resource mode we added in the 3.2.2 update. On the trade tab you may have noticed there is now a little gear symbol next to the coin and recruits icons, this indicates the city is using 'Managed' resources. If you click these icons it will switch to a hand symbol which indicates 'Manual' resource mode which is what you're used to.

Holding the mouse over the those icons will give a tooltip that explains the changes, but if you have any questions we'd be happy to answer them here as well.

Haha! I'm dumb! Thanks for getting back to me so fast. I knew that un update had come out but didn't realize that mode had been added.

Really love the game and can't wait for the next expansion to come out!
