Patch notes for EA 0.9.12.5 “Christmas in the Golden City” – December 16th, 2020
Build number: 612107
Did you ever want to visit one of the most beautiful cities in Europe during winter time?
We would like to present you with a small early Christmas gift: with patch EA 0.9.12.5 you can enjoy the brand new scenario map with the city of Prague!
Beside that, patch EA 0.9.12.5 should fix some issues you have encountered with the last patch.
The whole team wishes you peaceful and enjoyable Christmas days and stay healthy!
Content & Balancing
- We added the brand new scenario map of ‘Prague’!
- In order to prevent the blocking of the production especially for high level businesses, we reduced the amount of products per order list entry to 5 and the maximum amount of products to stacks of 10 items. This way, the required amounts of raw materials per order should be brought to the businesses more easily.
- We added the stack size per order list entry so that from now on you can see in what amounts the business master AI wants to produce.
- The business master AI creates the order lists with a broader variety of products, so that not only the most profitable item in that very moment will be solely produced. Workers still switch to other products in the order list when there are not enough raw materials or storage space for the next product in the list.
- Fixed a bug that would lead to a crash of the game.
- We fixed a bug that caused characters who were waiting in line for a service to be listed as possible targets in the selection list of a number of actions – you could target them but the action was not performed. Now these blocked characters are greyed out and can be found at the end of the selection list. We may further improve that in the future.
- We fixed a bug that allowed you to target characters who were waiting in line for a service via ‘pick from world’ even when they should be blocked.
- Fixed a bug where a wrong text was displayed when a building didn’t offer a service because services were turned off, the waiting line was full or all workers were asleep.
- Fixed a bug that caused torches, oil lamps, door latches and wall paint to be seldom produced.
