Re: Balance Feedback - New Game Finances

I am aware of the pretty obvious strategy here, and how it represents a design problem. I need to have a careful think about the best way to dissuade this as a strategy (as it kind of feels a bit like a cheat). Another way to look at it is that the initial research times may be too low. the rent may...

Re: Conveyor Crossroads

To be honest I'm not sure. This may not be possible right now. However, we already added smart T-junctions and that is the first step towards proper programmable junctions in the future where we may be able to do this sort of thing.

Re: We need a reason to not delete the Design Studio

I agree that in the late game, the design studio is pretty redundant right now. I am considering how we could have a bunch more 'design-only techs' like have already been mentioned, and maybe some stuff like metallic paint, or more stylish seats, running lights and other purely visual things. I can ...

Re: Scheduling new cars - issue for new players and even veterans

I'm aware that this GUI is not my finest hour! In my defense its way better than it used to be. Also I'm working on a new permanent pop-up over the starting slots (see below) which at least makes it way easier to find those slots and see what is going on: screenshot_21-02-2018_14-39-45.png We defini...

Re: How many planned missions/scenarios do you think Cliff?

New maps are really quick and easy to do. The only thing that slows down me adding scenarios is I have to find time to play through the whole thing to ensure its not too easy :D I'd like to add quite a lot, but there are some features I want in the game before I really go through and start doing lot...

Game updated today to build 1.45. Here are the changes

There is a bunch of stuff that is currently 'in progress' but I didn't want to delay these changes any longer: 1) [Bug] Fixed anomaly where the large battery upgrade could sometimes still require a small battery per car as well. 2) [Bug] Fixed visual anomaly where previous games efficiency chart dat...

Re: [Bug 1.44] 500 Cars produced achievement

That definitely looks like a bug! So I assume this is the 'Mainstream production' achievement that is not triggering for you when it should have? If so, can you send me the save game from \my documents\my games\production line\savegames to me at cliff AT positech dot co dot uk. I've looked through t...

Re: [Bug 1.44] Resources vanishing from local stockpiles

Hi, somehow I missed this thread. As has been said, resources do get 'evicted' (and you get a refund for them) if the next car needs different resources and there is no room, but it sounds like this is not what is happening in this case. Its definitely not behaviour that I have seen personally. I wo...

Re: Considering increasing extra robot cost

I put the robot prices up a while back. the prices are currently

1) $2,700
2) $4,050
3) $7,700

I am considering a 20% across the board increase in all upgrade costs for the next patch.

Re: All station upgrade options need to cost more

Interesting. This has come up a few times, and the upgrade costs, especially the robot ones, have been increased several times during early access already. I agree that they become a bit of a no-brainer, and that the costs should possibly be ramped higher, although the reason we haven't increased th...

Re: New GUI feature to help keep on top of car feature expectations...

Another improvement to the UI. Vehicle Designer window now also lists features the AI has researched as 'common' or 'universal' which you haven't researched yet. Clicking them takes you to the relevant R&D option.

New GUI feature to help keep on top of car feature expectations...

This image shows the new feature I added today. The game now highlights car features that have become common (yellow) or even universal (red) and which you have researched but NOT yet applied to specific models
