How are you?
Last week, after we launch version 0.7.9 to main build, we got feedback that said the game become harder (in a bad way). Before, we try to balance the economic system by adding new features such as upkeep costs and fish license tax. We also make you pay an amount of money to breed fish and to buy fish licenses so you can unlock new fish. And at the end of the week and month, you will pay expenses from all those features. But once again, just like the feedback said, that makes the game become harder in a bad way.
Coming with this patch, we try to reduce the expenses by removing the fish license tax. So, for expenses, you just need to pay the upkeep cost. We also change the paid time from weekly and monthly to monthly only. One of the reasons why we change to monthly only because we got feedback that said the expenses has come too quickly. Before they can make some money from their fish, they already told to pay some expenses. We try to recheck it and then decided to remove the weekly expenses.
Another issue that we got from the feedback is the crash issue. We also try to fix the crash issue in this patch. The crash issue was caused by a memory leak that happened while playing the game. We already tried to optimize the memory usage and did a few tests to prevent this from happening again. But, if you still encounter the crash issue, just let us know as soon as possible.
We also make a little change to the UI UX design. We rearrange the position of UI to make it more comfortable to look and use. We still try to find the best way to show every single UI in the game.
Balancing will be one of our concerns for now. We also rechecking the system design and still figuring out how’s the best way to deliver the system so every player will enjoy playing, even the new one. Lately, we want to try to add some notifications for every event that happens in the game. Because we think there are still many values and solutions for a problem that we haven't stated clearly. We hope that notifications will help player to know what’s going on and know what to do. We hope all of the changes that come with today’s patch will make you more comfortable and enjoy playing Aquaculture Land.
