Now that i need to remake my contacts in every city, i was wondering if there was any way of "picking" which townie you want as a contact. Could i just quit all the favor cases until i come across a favor for the townie i want?

I believe he's saying he doesn't want a contact that is of the opposite gender because he already has an advantage with flirting for the opposite gender. So if your contacts are the same gender - then you get the advantage of the contact AND you get to have the advantage of flirting with the other townies of the opposite gender. You get to fully take advantage of both.

But if you have a contact that is of the opposite gender, then it doesn't matter if you have flirting because they'll already answer all your questions, so it feels like it's a "waste" because you don't get to use your flirting on that townie since they'll answer all your questions anyway.

and i *think* the townies are evenly split between male and female in each city, so if you have a contact of the opposite gender and flirting doesn't matter because they answer all of your questions, then (if I'm right in the m/f split) there's a townie of the same gender that you have no advantage with (flirting won't work, and they're not your contact) - so you technically have an overall statistical disadvantage in having your questions answers - however, whether that actually affects your case depends on what townies are needed for alibis and PE, because you don't need every townie once every case, so it's not necessarily a disadvantage every time.

Thank you, Shelby. That makes perfect sense. I appreciate you taking the time to explain. I tend to simply play the game rather than think too much about it, so things like this often go by me. It's good that we have smart people around, like you and Jesse, to alert us to things like this.

Too late for me to do anything about it now though!

I'm glad it helped! I am the same, I just play and whatever happens is what happens, lol. Then afterwards, when someone else brings it up, I'm like "Oh yeah, that makes a lot of sense..." LOL!!!

In any case, good luck on regaining your contacts!!!

I still have all my *old* contacts, Shelby. I think you're confusing me with Dreamcatcher, who recently lost hers and posted about it. But if I were starting out again with a new detective I'd certainly follow Jesse's advice ; )

Just reading the above. Are you suggesting that if i should opt for female contacts? That way increasing the availabilty of flirting with other townies?

Dreamcatcher - exactly that. Of course it’s perfectly possible to simply take them as they come, since quitting favors would certainly increase the time and frustration of filling out your contact list. But if you have the patience to go for every little advantage making female friends (for a female detective) is the way to go.

Is there a limit to the amount of contacts you can have in a city?
