A lot of people have asked me for a pause button to take the time to design thier production lines with out the stress of the time passing. Here it is,now you can pause and take your time :) Also you can reuse your stored machine even if you are in debt but your debt will increase.
Several new ways to play Factory Engineer. Now you can play in sandbox mode,choose the amount of money and research points,make your most complex automated factory,experiment the game technologies and mechanics. There are several modes with 3 levels of difficulty -Marathon -Balance Target -Performance Target -Product Target you will have a limited number of days to complete your objective,use your time wisely.
This update add a new dimension for the game to measure your factory efficiency. New button in the main controls bar.Use this button to display a detailed report about your last 100 days performance. The report will show your current score,your global score and your rank in the leaderboard. The report will show you details about the items made in the last 100 days and thier score value.
Leaderboard called "100 days performance score". Score depend on items sold and its difficulty in the last 100 ingame days. The more items sold and the more they are difficult the more score you will get. Detailed in game report will be added soon about this performance score.
After listening to players suggustions,i decided to change the research system
With older research system,players found it very time consuming and difficult to maintain steady flow of research points, because they need to change thier production lines a lot, and they have to wait for hours to collect research points.
New research system will be as follows - Items will have a fixed research value during the game "no more research points decay" - Item research value will directky depend on item complexity,more complex means more reward.
The older research system could be added later as a seperate mode for the players who like to grind and spend time collecting hard earned research points.
This update is compatible with older saved game,you dont have to start new game to try it.
Thanks for everyone who gives a feedbak to make the game more fun :)
