I’m releasing version 220.127.116.11 this morning. This release is early because of the multiple hot patches I had to release for v18.104.22.168. Organizationally, this will allow me to get all 9 builds back on the same code base. Version 22.214.171.124 does not have everything I wanted to include in it. Most of the work I have slated for this update will go into v126.96.36.199. I expect that build to be ready mid to late January unless problems arise in v188.8.131.52...
So what’s in this update? Of note, I have restricted the creation of New Generations to one new generation per model. So, for example, if you create a new generation of one vehicle, to make a third generation, you create a new generation using the second-generation vehicle. I mainly did this to fix a couple of issues where players were creating multiple new generations of vehicles with the “Refit Modified Component” system.
In addition to that, the game will no longer allow you to replace a design that is already being replaced by an in-development vehicle.
We restricted the main tutorial with a lot more “safety” checks. We want people to follow along and click the red glowing things. In the past, I did not restrict the players to this because there were no other tutorials. But now that there are multiple tutorials in the game, we want the player to have tunnel vision on the basic game concepts, then allow them to explore. We’ll see how that works. I am sure someone will break it somehow.
-Bugfix: Fixed Henry Royce achievement triggering before making a v12 engine.
-GUI: Added Parts Inflation settings information to the Load Game screen.
-GUI: Removed white back arrow from all reports, and replaced it with an ascii arrow for only reports that allow viewing previous months.
-Gameplay: You can now only create a new generation of vehicle design once. To create a third generation, you must create a new generation on the second generation vehicle. This is to prevent user from accidentally creating multiple new generations when refitting modify components.
-Gameplay: You can no longer do model replacements if the replaced model already have active replacements scheduled. This is to prevent user errors asking for a model to be replaced multiple times when refitting multiple vehicle components.
