We are releasing a small update this week that is mostly intended to solve some crashing issues. However, the Tropican Department of Adequate Generosity also managed to add in a few gameplay fixes and improvements to round out the update and guarantee citizens’ satisfaction (or else).
Rest assured that we are still focused on working on the multiplayer savegames feature. In the past weeks since launch we have made good progress on it, but we will require a bit more time to have it ready to share with you. Thank you for your patience.
We hope you enjoy this update and have a very Tropican Easter holiday. Thank you for your ongoing support!
Viva Tropico! Viva El Presidente!
- Fixed Market Manipulation raids not spawning the intended trade routes.
- Fixed issues that caused the “Modernize” action for buildings to fail.
- Fixed invisible enemy units that could lead to neverending attacks.
- Removed the “Modernize All” button from upgrade tabs of some buildings, as it became redundant after we introduced the “Crtl+LMB” keybinding for the same action.
- Players can now also hold the Shift key to apply upgrades, budgets and workmodes to all buildings of the same type.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when signing the constitution.
- Fixed some rare gameplay-related crashes.
- Fixed several technical crashes.
- Fixed crashes for Multiplayer games.
- We are aware that some users who have Asus Aura drivers installed experience crashes either on startup or during gameplay.
- We are working on tracking down what is causing these crashes and to offer a solution as soon as possible.
- In the meantime, if you are experiencing crashes, please check if you have Asus Aura drivers installed and if uninstalling them solves the issues for you.
- The game can crash if players attempt to resize their window during a loading screen
- Linux: Random crashes on startup can occur

- The achievement “Been there, Done That” does not unlock correctly
- El Presidente can be shown walking sideways and there can be issues with election speeches, e.g. El Presidente facing in the wrong direction.
- Empty shacks can quickly appear and disappear on the map.
- RMG: Entering invalid Seeds or Share Codes can lead to flawed RMG maps.
- The pathfinding and spawning of rebels during Guerilla attacks can be flawed.

- Market Manipulation trade routes for import are more efficient than intended. This will be adjusted in a future patch.
- The metro upgrade for the airport causes Tropicans and tourists to get stuck.
