I am just so happy this moment that UBI Soft never lured me into buying the game , not even with discounts.
I were a Beta participant and were not that pleased with that. But I wanted to try the Free Weekend play to see how far the game has progressed (or regressed as it may be) .
However , not even being able to play for free I am so happy that I did not pay and then not be able to play ! , just saying !
I know it's 'Christmas' , but I am not in the mood to have my game time spoiled by distracting and annoying snow-fall in-game ! !
Either please turn the damned thing off at once or at least make a setting in options that will allow people to once and for all turn off such 'seasonal' annoyances !
Thank you !
Never mind !
I were annoyed because despite trying to restart the game the damned snow kept falling and wouldn't go away,
but ! , apparently all I needed to do were to switch to New World for a little while and then go back and then the snow were gone !
So as annoying as is then not a major problem because one can make it go away once one knows how !

Sorry , I do not know if I have caused any confusion. The exploding power plants only happened some time after they were moved and turned off. Not while actually moving the plants. So to record this . if I could , then I would have to locate a save where the power plants are there and then keep interface on power plants and then let time pass and not 'play the game' as such. I guess that I could try to do that but it do seem as a major bother for all parties involved for something that is most likely of no greater consequence to the game.
Only maybe if it happened generally to turned off buildings then it might be worth your while.
But thank you for caring !
I did in fact mostly copy the whole original island layout from another island to start with instead of 'moving', but if the power plants that exploded were 'originals' (originally built one by one by menu) or copies of copies of copies I simply can not remember. I only tell this because I have no idea if that has any meaning in the internal game code.
By the way ! That ability to copy hundreds of buildings and streets from one island to another is one of my absolute favorite functions about the Anno 1800 game ! That's just such 'cool' functionality ! Thank you !
I were not aware that you could move buildings from one island to another , I tried that once but apparently could not - but that is a matter for another discussion.
What I did was to move all the oil power plants (maybe four or five in all) from one place on an island to another place on same island and turned them off while moving and rebuilding everything else because I found the first layout of island no good !. To start with they were moved closer together and one or two may have been connected to a road , but they were turned off. Then one exploded and I moved them all further apart and deleted any road connecting. But they kept exploding until I think only one (or two ?) left !
Maybe there is a rule that you can not have so many oil power plants I dunno.
It is really no biggie since my oil power plants do not generally explode since I normally never put them that close together turned off and since I mostly use Union with person preventing explosions. I were just wondering and found it a rather peculiar and odd behavior for a building turned OFF that is !
I might have a save where the plants is there (auto save is on!) , not sure though and would have to check , but I am sure that you people have more important oddities / bugs to take care off !
Thank you for both your time and for your interest !
What helped me to get access to the Beta forum were this , quote :

Then you should have access to the Closed Beta Forum.
Thank you ! Wish I found this forum sooner !
I have had same problem.
I posted in Beta forum back when there were a problem activating the game and where mail said use key and there were no key in mail .
Since then I have had no access to Beta forum. I wrote support and received no answer and ended up deleting the Beta since I could not provide any feedback.
I thought that it were a deliberate act by UBIsoft because I had dared tried help otthers with the key problem (I had manged to get the game activated !)
I just tried logging out and then in again and that didn't help at all.....
My trying the beta were very much hindered by the fact that I could not discuss and get help in the forum so I only could try 'game mechanics' not much else since 'expansion' of start area didn't happen by placing the towers so there were no access to other new resources (Iron , coal, gem))
I do not know if it matters but because I were going to move everything on the island around in a new layout then I had moved all the power plants to a spot by themselves (like in screenshot) relatively close together but turned off and not connect to any road except maybe the first one.!
in the nature of things exploding then I can hardly record it since that is an accident in game , but I do have a screen-shot from after it happened last time. I had I think four or five on standby when it started and at present only have one left since the others exploded one by one over time and I deleted them to get rid of the in-game island down rating since I wouldn't want to rebuild something on standby taken out of use because I rebuilt whole city anyway and had too many power plants after that (found out that too many plants and too long travel time were a problem with the train from oil harbor but that is another story ) ! :
