Update Listen To Your Music and some fixes!

Listening to your music!
At long last you can listen to your music instead of the default soundtrack. You've always been able to do it but it has been behind a wall of annoying file related instructions. This music player allows for workshop tracks as well so keep that in mind!

First change your soundtrack type to "User Only" (audio settings)

Then click the "+" sign. You'll be presented with this menu:

From there you just select which songs you want to hear ingame! Easy enough right?

The annoying contract bug
For many decades (more like two months) contracts have had an annoying bug that showed your written songs as passing the requirements even if their rating was below it. I finally tracked down the source of the issue and it has been fixed. Thank you to everyone who has reported it and made finding the issue easier.

  • Added user music player list to the audio settings
Minor changes
  • Calendar shows current venue name
  • Calendar now shows all days
  • Removed old schedule sprite from map when booking
Bug fixes
  • Fixed back button not working on Song Creation load menu if a song box was behind it
  • Fixed rounding issue with contracts showing that the contract is complete when the songs are below the minimum required rating

What's next?
Panos (the artist) has been out of town all month and so working together has been difficult. Also his current laptop sucks so doing any graphic design is extremely slow/difficult for him. His situation is starting to stabilize and he should be back with his beautiful work desktop soon. Most of the delays we've been facing in the art department are the result of his being away but he is doing his best to keep up and plans to take care of a lot when he returns.

Meanwhile I've finally settled in at my new home and am keeping up on the work I am able to do on the game. It has been very stressful as of recently due to Panos being somewhat absent and so I'm going to take a few days to relax before working on the next update.

As is usual we'll be listening and replying to everyone on the forums.

The next set of changes we are looking to make have not yet been determined but the list of planned features is huge so fear not, there will be more!

Hey content creators!
We are always keeping our eyes open for new RGT (Rock God Tycoon) videos! If you have a channel/website we would love for you to give the game a spin! There is actually a surprisingly small amount of videos covering the game and so if you want to create a guide, let's play, or anything else, we highly encourage it!

Keep rockin' on!

“Rock God Tycoon represents everything that is good about Greenlight and Early Access... This is the single best thing I have purchased on this platform.”

“Despite the simplistic art style, it actually looks surprisingly deep with all the different knobs and levers you can control...”

About This Game

Rock God Tycoon (RGT) places you at the helm of your very own band and on the path to your own rock destiny. Choose your character’s discipline from guitar, bass, drums, or vocals, then hire the rest of your band before hitting the road to stardom. Manage your group and decide when deadwood needs to be cut. Fed up with the drummer missing shows? Fire the slacker and replace him!

Model your fully customizable characters with 300+ available items, all exceptionally detailed, beautifully designed, and with frequent new additions. Everybody needs to pay their bills though, and you’ll need to book the right shows and practice your songs to keep the money coming in; going from small town bars, to concerts halls and stadiums. Your band isn’t performing and is struggling to hold a note? Better put down that coffee to pick up that gauntlet and step on stage yourself to show them how it’s done. Gigging across 76 cities, each with unique venues, you'll constantly be on the road; whether it be in a van, tour bus, or a private jet.

As your skill and renown grows, so will your fan base. Head to the shop and use some of your cash to upgrade your instruments, equipment, and buy promotions in a fully realized catalogue of features. Make sure to manage the tension and egos in your band carefully, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to pay the rent. Well placed info tabs show you every actionable detail of your band, and allow you to manage all of your band's day to day goals. RGT allows you to write your own songs, develop and release your own albums, and sign record deals with a variety of labels.

This is the music tycoon game you have been waiting for and deserve.
