RPG Tycoon 1.4.3 Hotfix

Hi there,

Over the weekend I've been working on two hotfixes for RPG Tycoon which I've just pushed.

This addresses some issues with the new store/queue system in the base game, an issue regarding Heroes interacting with settlements and various other fixes. For a full list of changes read below.

For anyone playing the new Supply & Demand DLC, this patch also introduces some minor balance changes and adds a new Auto-Trade feature...

You can now select a hero to conduct auto-trading of a resource from the Trading Post menu.

They'll then walk to the trading post and collect the current storage of the selected resource

Before heading outside the kingdom to sell any excess of the selected resource for its sale value.

They'll continue to repeat this action until they're stopped. Heroes will also gain tiredness while performing trading, so be sure to keep an eye on their well-being and keep them happy.
