Building Upgrades vs Store buildings

Got surprised when cider mill upgrade happens from 2x3 to 3x3 size and building got pulled into inventory. Nice feature, but cannot get this ability for shrink kit upgrades on wishing wells, fountain of youth etc., where those are directly shifting their size in the map itself :(.

Is this supportive functionality or happens by mistake on cider mill?

Actually, expecting this approach for every shrink kit or any building upgrades to behave like that. It will reduce the use of store buildings slightly.

Guessing like, this might have discussed long back however myself interested to know the current thoughts from everyone.

Instead of making that feature restricting with building size fit in or not fit in, every upgraded building gets added to the inventory would be nice. Of course, timer in the building will be a corner case, but user can plan and wait till the next starting cycle. so, enabling the cider mill behavior to every upgraded building is quite useful. Players can make strategy to use the upgrade kits wisely on the perspective of Auction Dealer and Store building usage. Is there any trouble in bringing that behavior to all upgradeable building.

No - I would not want this to happen. Using something like the Cider Mill - makes total sense that because you are increasing its size, it should go back into Inventory, because it may or may not fit within its space anymore. Using something like Wishing Well, it is being shrunk, there is no issue about it no longer fitting, and DO NOT want it to go in inventory, as would then lose the timer, which would reset. And for people who try to time their collections so they can be picked up at the same time, then having to waste time to find return the WW back into the City, could easily start a bit of a mess on time. The Shrink Kits for certain buildings work fine as is - if anything, player may want to move it around to maximize efficiency with the newly acquired spaces. Increasing the size of a building, wish it would not go back into inventory, but makes absolute sense why it happens.

I have been picking up CM upgrades in the AD hoping there would be a better one the the Flourishing Cider Mill this year - do you think that will happen?

I pick them up all the time too. Much better than using blacksmiths, and you can age it up to current, so it qualifies for Event quest credit for both (producing x number of time & producing current, or previous, Age) For 2x3 its great and if I want to slowly, or quickly upgrade for the Goods or FP timers as well. Lots of choices.

That makes total sense. Though Cider Mill gives nearly twice as many supplies - after a while, really do not need supplies anymore - more important to have the buildings that fit the space best. I may have to see if I can get 1 or 2 of them. Thanks
