Btw do I get residents when I'm away from the game?
The fact is at this point, I have to restock the pub so much that it's requiring too much effort. Even with multiple dream job employees, I'm getting 375 quantity for the highest level item. Yes, it only takes 24 minutes, but I want to get to the point that I don't have to constantly be ON the game. So if I can replace it with something that pulls in stock in the thousands, I'm in a much better place. I'm going to test it overnight.
And no, you won't. For residents, you have to take them there, it won't fill up your hotels without you manually doing it.

At this point, it doesn't matter. This isn't an argument that we need to have. The whole point is that we enjoy playing the game. It might grow exponentially but it's manageable and wortwhile to still play. You may take a bit longer to expand as you go forward, when you're at level 20, you have 10 businesses pulling in 20 businesses of money, so that increases along with it. The time it takes to stock (so far I'm at under 2 hours for upwards of 3ish/k of stock) allows you to have the game going on its own, so you don't have to micromanage your microcitizens.
Also, to put it into perspective - I'm seriously rolling in money now that I'm at 19 floors and lots of businesses. Tons of coins all over the place, I'm at 40k in just over an hour. So it takes me about 2 hours to add another floor.
Anyway, it's too late and I really should be sleeping, but I just need to... finish. This. Thing. Have to add another floor. Only 14 more bux needed... must not... stay up... that long...
