City Game Studio: Convention rework


Hello,

You were expecting v0.32.4 and not v0.33.0. Well I am sorry if I disappointed you but this update is way to big so I had to call it v0.33.0!

Convention rework

No more annoying pop-ups that interrupt each September! Now conventions are bundled, which makes the result not bad at all.
Allocating a game to a convention impacts on its rendering, I think it's so cool that I'm thinking of adding illustrations to other panels for upcoming updates.

Game balancing

As you will notice, the game is more challenging. I created a tool that helps me to monitor the different game modes and to forecast the income generated based on the game type, the rating, fans... Thanks to this tool and also to the gamers of the unstable branch I could balance the game. The Easy mode remains almost as it is. On the other hand the other levels of difficulty greatly evolved.

Game interviews

City Game Studio is more challenging. But interviews are there to help you get through it better.
I want to make it clear that any resemblance with real characters is completely fortuitous.

Closing words

Many things have changed in the game, and it will continue to do so. In the next version, v0.34.0, you will be able to make your own game console.
Meanwhile, I invite you to take a look at all the mods available on the Workshop. Many thanks to all of you for your great mods.

Thanks for your great mods,
Binogure
