Welcome to Class, Mayors!

We have a revamped "work-in-progress" tutorial for building roads that will get your cities started. Feedback is greatly appreciated, as we hope to expand it to cover much more of the game.

These are the patch notes:

Version 0.0.58.7 ALPHA

Development News
  • The new versioning system (Major.Minor.Build.Patch) is being delayed to minimize breaking changes.
    We're going to be updating the main/default branch to this patch at the same time the test patch goes live, to assist with ensuring we're working with up-to-date feedback and info on bugs.
  • Tourist Update and new trailer coming soon!
Features
  • Added the first flight of our new Tutorial system! With "Enable Tutorial" checked in Options, the Tutorial will initiate shortly after loading into an old or new city. It covers the basics for getting started in NewCity in an interactive way.
  • Added the song "Tourist Trap" to the soundtrack.
Changes
  • Improved shader error checking and logging for future debugging efforts.
  • Improved recovery from startOggStream errors and issues loading songs.
  • Slightly increased the number of routes processed in a batch to prevent some from being "forgotten."
  • Reduced the number of factories in the Quarry Crusher design.
  • Tweaked the global and land fragment shaders to add more definition to objects in shadow and minimize flat shading.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed an issue where transit passengers would skip their ride on buses and trains.
  • Fixed a visible seam on flat-roof buildings.
Known issues
  • Occasionally saves or autosaves can take an extraordinary amount of time to complete.
  • The first time enabling the Tutorial with an old save can result in hiding certain UI elements per the old system; quit the game with "Enable Tutorial" checked to reset.

Check out this update via the Betas tab. Right-click NewCity in your Steam Library and select Properties. Click the dropdown under the Betas tab and choose the "test - Testing branch". You can opt-out by choosing "NONE - Opt-out of all beta programs" instead. Going from one to the other will trigger an update as Steam fetches you the desired branch.

We really appreciate all the feedback and bug reports here on Steam and Discord! Please keep posting your thoughts and touching base with us.

Happy Learning,
Lone Pine Games
