Hello Scholars,

We're back to bring you your monthly update!

Oval Track

You can now build an Oval Track for your students to use when doing PE! This is the first of three major Exercise facilities we’re hoping to add to the game in the coming months.

Object Rotation Arrows

This is a quality of life feature we should have added a long time ago, but only managed to make time for now (sorry, folks!) but we hope you’ll agree that it really makes a huge difference. This update did come with an issue that we explain below.

NOTE: Part of the reason we delayed implementing this is because we had to update the orientation of objects to be consistent across the board. This means that rotation of some objects in existing save files will change. The new rotations might also cause overlap with other existing objects so they may be removed. A common occurence of this is the Teacher's Table. You may need to rebuild such objects. The following are the objects whose orientation were changed:

  • Admin Table
  • Big Window
  • Clinic Bed
  • Clock
  • College Degree
  • Fan
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Kitchen Sink
  • Motivational Poster
  • Sink
  • TrashCan
  • Window
  • Teacher's Table (formerly Office Table)

Your existing save files will still work, but you will probably want to dismantle and place the objects again if they look out of place. The image above shows a hand sanitizer that was affected by this update. This is a one-time change that should not affect future updates.

Bowel Movements

We added a bowel need satisfy our quota for toilet humor in the game. Students now have a bowel need which requires them to go to a cubicle to relieve themselves. If the student cannot find a toilet cubicle they will find a bush and take a poo there.

Safety in (Monitor) Numbers

Students now have a safety need. Students will feel less safe when there are many delinquent students, they are bullied, or they use a damaged object. To increase the feeling of safety, you can hire more monitors or try to reduce the number of delinquent students by hiring counselors.

Monitors Can Now Scold

In larger schools, the sheer amount of delinquent students creates a bottleneck for your principal as they scold each and every delinquent. This also created other problems with regards to delinquent students failing because they lost so much time out of class everytime they had to be hauled to the principal’s office by a monitor.

To counter this we have given the ability for monitors to scold so they save time from having to drag the student to the principal’s office. For now this is a test feature, and if it works out we will likely make it into a research item.

Programmable Hotkeys

Another long-requested quality of life feature, you can now assigned hotkeys as you like. Note that the mouse buttons are locked to certain actions.

Known Issues:

There is a visual bug where sick students seem to jump out of bed every few seconds. We're aware of this and working on a fix for the next update.
