Hello respected community!

We are working hard on 3rd era, but to keep updating the game, I made one new version yesterday. It is small one, but there is the basis for much more interesting updates to come.

What you can see in the game now is possibility to select, whether you want station to collect specific cargo type from surounding buildings or if it accepts cargo type by unloading from train. It is very useful when having more stations around the town / industry building.

Full change log is here:

  • Added: Possibility to decline incoming cargo by station setup
  • Added: Possibility to mod cargo to affect towns growing
  • Added: Quest wagons/engines (WIP) - this will be soon introduced
  • Added: Town grows also thanks to mail in second era
  • Added: Preparation for second track type (speed corridor) in 3rd era
  • Fixed: Empty town caption in some cases
  • Fixed: Placed towns in editor no more belong to the player
  • Fixed: Placed buildings in editor find closes town as its new owner
  • Fixed: Depot train view scrollbars
  • Fixed: Tutorial "Connect 2 Towns" now accepts only town buildings, not industry which belongs to that town
  • Removed: Not-yet-finished buildings, cargo, wagons, landscapes, particles, ..(edited)

Hello respected community!

One of new things in Friday build was the restriction to remove only your roads in towns. This unfortunately ended up having issues with possitioning station in towns and even placing railroad crossings.

I did my best and the result is this rather quick update (2 days after the last one):
  • You are able to not just remove roads, but also buildings in town! it is only very expensive as expected :)
  • I've also tuned colors in game to bring more vivid world where you want to spend many hours.
Hope you will like it ;)

Full change log is here:
  • Added: possibility to remove town's road, but it is expensive
  • Added: possibility to remove town's buildings (expect main hall and quest buildings)
  • Added: Possibility to build industry buildings in editor
  • Added: Possibility to build railroad crossings again (you instantly buy road tile from town)
  • Modified: Vivid colors (tuned all colors including fog, light, grass, ambient color)
  • Modified: Tuned building / roads removing cost
  • Modified: Foundry upgrades cost
  • Fixed: Rock/Water/Snow are not colored by grass in construction mode
  • Fixed: key '.' does not clear input text box
  • Fixed: Filename input is now restricted to valid character only
  • Removed: Steam stats and achievement are disabled in editor
