Battery production, more SFX and GUI improvements. Updated to build 1.53, Wednesday 27th June 2018


Hi again everyone! This is another update to the game with a list of varied improvements and tweaks. We fixed some stockpile bugs which will be a relief to people with large factories, introduced a few GUI improvements, and added a new battery-production pipeline for electric cars, new SFX and more. Full list:

  1. [Feature] Added screenshot and new post-card mode screenshot buttons to the top of screen button GUI.
  2. [SFX] Added a whole bunch of new sound effects in the factory.
  3. [Bug] Extra text on the vehicle warning ‘slot requirements not met’ is now correctly displayed.
  4. [Content] New scenario added for the giant map.
  5. [GUI] Vehicle notices now have a mini-vehicle rendered next to the text to make it clear they are specific to that vehicle.
  6. [GUI] Scenario objectives window now pops up whenever one of the objectives is met.
  7. [GUI] Vehicles and slots now have different shaped icons for warnings and errors when zoomed out.
  8. [Sounds] Improvements to the code for factory sounds that makes them much more positionally sensible.
  9. [Bug] Fixed bug where supply stockpiles might not order items that were second or later on their list in certain specific circumstances.
  10. [Balance] Increased purchase cost of research facilities of both types by 10%.
  11. [Balance] Reduced the delay at a game start before AI competition arrives.
  12. [GUI] Enhanced the ‘waiting for resources’ notice so that it now shows icons for what resources are missing.
  13. [GUI] Save game dialog now defaults to a save name with date, time and company name in it.
  14. [GUI] Prices screen on the finance window now shows current wage and power costs and wage pressure history over time.
  15. [GUI] Fixed graphical bug where some modal tutorial windows would prevent scrolling but not zooming, resulting in graphical corruption on map.
  16. [Content] New battery production slots and research!
