City Game Studio v1.1, Ready to leave Early Access


Hello everyone!

I hope you are as excited as I\'m to see the release of City Game Studio just around the corner.

So without further ado I bring you the most recent features that come with the v1.1!

A terminal to cheat


I think this is the most eagerly awaited feature. Cheating. You have to press F1, this opens a console. You can either click on the underlined texts or type them directly into the console. We begin with the help command, which lists the available commands. Next, use list-models to list the modifiable elements of the game. To get more information about a particular element, type help fanbase to get help for the element fanbase (this is only an example).

Market research


Marketing managers help you to better master a game genre or a game console. Given a certain investment of time and money, you get crucial information to create better games.

Just imagine what you could do if you were able to train your employees as well? Oh well, you don't have to be imaginative anymore because it is already possible to train your employees

Train your employees to perfection


Prior to training employees you need a large financial budget to build a university that will house classrooms dedicated to the training of potential prodigies. Naturally this makes City Game Studio much easier, so this feature requires a lot of funding.

In short, as soon as the university is built, select the workers to train, type and duration of the training session, after 2 minutes it's done.

Shop overhaul to furnish studios


Interface has been enhanced to provide a more fun and accessible way to buy and furnish studios. For example, furnishing a sudio is easier because the furniture list is still displayed while placing the furniture. Also, there is a category system that is easier to navigate.

Other improvements


When you open City Game Studio for the first time you can be somewhat surprised. The game wants to be intuitive and easy to understand. Yet there was a little something missing, almost nothing, but here it is now. Tooltips that explain what's happenning, how to do things, or what to do.

There are also other small changes that consist in adding links between panels. Instead of having to search opening different menus, you can switch from one menu to another if menus are linked together. For example by clicking on a human resources manager you can access the employee schedule. Or by clicking on an employee you can access the training panel. This will make you feel more comfortable and easier to navigate in City Game Studio, I'm sure.

That\'s it, this update is huge and contains a lot of additions, so I made it as simple as possible. If you want to know more about it, I invite you to read the Changelog which is below.

Have a great weekend,

Binogure xoxo
