Whats coming up in 0.23.0
#1
I started working on v0.23.0 today, so I thought I'd give a quick rundown on what to expect.

I do not anticipate many new buildings (if any) in this update.  This is mostly going to be refinements, bug fixes, and implementing some features that are in the backlog.

One new thing I am adding though is the concept of Retirement.  Soon, once your workers have made enough money to where they think they are good for life, they will just stop working.  So if you are just showering your colonists with money, you might need to reevaluate that strategy.

On the plus side (minus side if you are a colonist), there are new policies coming up that might be able to convince your people to come out of retirement and reenter the workforce.  Now you can click on a colonist, open their stats, click on their money stat, and you now have the option to levy a bogus fine against them and take their money.

I am also adding a new policy option to do a one time tax collection of all colonists for 10% of their money.  You can keep hitting them with it as much as you want, but be advised that they will probably not be happy with you.

There will be other policy related options too.  I am also going to be cleaning up some of the menus, adding more menu icons where ones were missing, and adding new colonist occupation classes.  Stay tuned for more!

Oh I made a thread about colonists life cycles as well. Maybe having them work so many life cycles before their untimely death.

Can anybody explain what would be the Fire Drill in the new version? I don't get it. For what is relocation good for? is this mean to improve the resident - work location for the colonist, or is it just a way to bother colonists?

When you're building your colony sometimes residents can't find housing near their jobs.  A Fire Drill resets everything so that colonists find new jobs and then housing near their jobs.  It's a way to optimize commute times.

would be nice to have a minimap,like in age of empires style =)
and on the tab of the resources would be nice to see the income,example gold 300.000 +200 (how much you gain per second) or -200 if you consume more then produce
and be able to put a priority on jobs,so new colonists would first fill the higher priority jobs

Minimap is unnecessary. Production would be difficult as not everything produces at the same rate and priority job filling has been suggested before

Nice work so far. Only issue for me really is the key commands don't work so I have to click on everything. Is this a bug or common problem? I also paid for it but I have ads and none of the special buildings, but it should update itself yea? Sorry if this is the wrong place for my comments. Thanks.

You still have to click on the buildings, rovers, etc for the shortcut keys to work.  For instance if you want to sell a building you hold down the key and click the building.  For example.  I have sell without confirmation bound to the "s" key.  To sell a building without confirmation, I hold down the "s" key and click the building and it's sold.

I think once you get to a certain number of colonists, its too much for the game to handle
avatar
Ive found it best to 1. Fire Drill 2. Return to Title 3. Reload page 4. Load game
avatar
screw it ill just reload to before the god damn firedrill and stop trying to grow that colony. . . shame
avatar
yeah i think its actually that protesting crap thats bugged it up. . . . there where initially 200 or so protesters a with 2000 unhappy. . . now since hitting firedrill its gone up to basically 80% of population is unhappy. more than 12000 sick [initially 366 before firedrill] . . . basically since the protesters are occupying the same space essentially overloading game, it reduced the game speed and just bugged it up so that it completely collapses in on itself thats a great bloody system right there
avatar
Try saving and reloading? That fixed it for me when a fire drill seemed to take forever to put people back to work
avatar
cant even starve them to death because i have a huge stockpile of food, cant sell the stuff or send it to my other basis because of all the bloody trade restrictions
avatar
is there anyway to kill all my colonists. . . i hit the firedrill button to move the citizens around and its likely to take 1 - 2 years [realtime] until the games back working . . . hit it 1 hour ago its only 1% people housed / employed now out of 36000 people
avatar
Done

Thanks, filing report now.

Is there a topic on proper bug reporting procedure?
avatar
And that's it. Brilliant!!!!
avatar
I did try to flip the new tall food building, that might be it. Let me try it
avatar
OK, going "flat" works.
avatar
Hmm...let me try that
avatar
it happened to me before when i flipped a type of building and i guess it didn't have a flipped sprite ready for it. its long fixed now but what you're experiencing sounds like it.
avatar
@jomaxro darn...i have an issue similar to that before. try click the transparency mode button and see if anything changes..
avatar
So I've run into a strange issue after updating to .36 on the Desktop - when I load any save or backup it loads, but everything is black. The resource data appears at the top, as does the building menu on the right, but I can't see my colony
