Hey all! Any update with any crash fixes is getting prioritised for release, so here is another update. We have made a big performance increase that you wwill really notice if you have big maps or a very low spec PC. We also fixed some obscure crashes, and there are some nice UI tweaks too (I’m especially happy to finally get that click-production-schedule notice thing in there!).
Hope you like the changes :smiley:

  1. [Bug] Fixed crash when a supply stockpile window is open, and linked to a specific slot while research completes for an upgrade that would add new resources to that slot.
  2. [Performance] Sped up calculation of maintenance effect overlay which might fix a crash bug for the maintenance facility.
  3. [GUI] Added hotkeys for finance screen (‘f’), Vehicle design (‘v’),Research (‘t’), Sales (‘m’), Efficiency (‘e’). All are remappable.

hotkeys

  1. [Performance] Much faster route finding, which should boost performance during load and also when placing new slots or resource importers/conveyors.
  2. [Bug] Fixed error where the token ‘SHARE’ was shown untranslated in one event pop-up window.
  3. [Feature] A new button at the bottom of any slots ‘imports’ tab gives you access to a screen which lets you change the global import setting for all current & future imports.

  1. [GUI] You can now move individual items up and down within a production schedule using new up and down buttons.

  1. [GUI] You can now click directly on those pop-up notices at the start of a production line to go directly to the production manager screen for that slot.

  1. [GUI] You can now click anywhere on a closed drop-down list to expand it.
  2. [Bug] Fixed bug where saving a game and then re-opening the save game list shows two copies of the same game.
