So am I the only one who doesn't like the way the auction works here? Meaning, If the auction has a 1 day time limit on it and it's down to 5 min and I make a bid, the auction extends to 1 full day now.. What's the purpose of it extending 1 full day? I also think this way, some bids just get out of hand for horses that aren't worth that much. I'd like to see auctions be like real auctions, give it a time limit and there's no time extensions. highest bidders wins at end of the regular time. yes/no??

No, not really fair to do real time auctions when you have players all over the world.

This also hurts when a horse sells for $50 but was extended 2-3 times making the farm costs way more than the additional bids.

Maybe reduced time limit changes could be helpful. Along with removing farm costs for auction horses... or at least for ones listed for under a certain amount.

...and some folks can spend much more time logged in than others. The sim has it's shortcomings, this isn't one of them IMO.

This I very much agree with.

I feel like maybe adding a whole day to extended bids is too much. Maybe only add 6-10 hrs per bid 🤷🏽‍♀️

I also wish there was an option to eventually sell a broodmare after you have bred her a few times.

There is the option of putting in your max big ahead of time (if you're not able to make it in time). So the real question would be whether to extend or not, and by how much time. And this would be more whether you want protection from auction sniping at the last second.

I agree in some ways. I think for the initial bid it should not add time. If you are the only one bidding there might be a reason. That said once someone else bids I like the adding of lots of time. So I would say the second or more bids should add a day but the first bid should not add any time.

I would think a 6 hour extension should be plenty for all.

By the pound? Not sure anyone'd get rich on that.
