Offworld Trading Company 1.20.20465 Update



General
  • Tutorials have been updated
  • Players can now see their Masquerade name while when playing in Masquerade mode
  • Some colony classes have had their resource price minimums lowered. In the Daily Challenge mode the best move was sometimes just throwing down a large number of mines or quarries on an easy to access resource, and because the resource would never drop below $30 a player could just sell that one resource until they had won. This change to address that situation and encourage more interesting strategies.
  • Increased precision of the server game timer.

Balance
As expressed by the community recently, extra claims can be extremely powerful. In fact, this reward for founding late was so strong that many players would only found without it in the most dire of circumstances. Early claims are being adjusted so that in games of 4 players or less everyone will receive an extra claim eventually.
  • Last four players to found now all receive a free claim (last to found on HQ2, then HQ3, HQ4, HQ5) regardless of number of players in the game

Several small changes are being made to Black Market items to add consistency and bring costs in line with the power each item brings. Spies and Holograms will now have a cooldown, preventing a player with an early lead from taking them all cheaply to get a significant advantage. Meanwhile, Return a Claim and Core Samples have had their cooldowns reduced to encourage their use.
  • Return a Claim Black Market item can now be purchased when in D Debt
  • Changed Black Market cooldown for Bribe a Claim to 90 seconds (up from 60)
  • Changed Black Market cooldown for Holograms, Spies, Return a Claim, and Core Sample to 30 seconds.
  • Pirates now steal 200 resources
  • Pirates and Magnetic Storms are more likely to appear

Patents are receiving some small adjustments, focused on making energy slightly more accessible and bringing Transparent Aluminum’s power down.
  • Energy Vault now produces 2 backup Energy (up from 1)
  • Transparent Aluminum now costs 60 chems (up from 40)
  • Perpetual Motion now costs 40 chems (down from 60)

Bug Fixes
  • Nomads now receive the correct Black Market time when founding
  • Infinite Challenge Leaderboard now properly updates when played from the Ranked Queue
  • Geothermal Borehole Auctions will no longer occur on maps where no Geothermal Vents are present
  • Overflow bug and formatting fixed for very large amounts of cash
  • Players can once again see number of players in FFA queue while in the 1v1 queue
  • Fixed an error with “Infinite Win (Io)” Achievement
  • Fixed border color artifacts on Medium and Low Rendering Quality

“Offworld Trading Company is a work of genius.”
5/5 – Quarter to Three

“This isn’t an RTS with the combat removed - it’s Wall Street on a new frontier. It kept me engaged because every choice is part of an ongoing battle.”
88/100 – PC Gamer

“The core mechanic – the market that acts as a malleable foundation on which every other system is built – is close to perfect.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

About This Game


Mars has been colonized. Now, Earth's greatest corporate titans have been invited to build companies to support it. The competition to dominate the market is fierce in this fast-paced economic RTS from Civilization IV lead Designer, Soren Johnson.

Venture to Mars to Earn Your Fortune

With space travel becoming a reality and the easy-to-reach resources on Earth dwindling, hopeful people seeking their fortune are rushing to the next great frontier: Mars. Rekindle humanity’s adventurous spirit by leaving Earth behind and make a new name for yourself as a titan of industry on the red planet.

Discover the Origin of the Major Martian Businesses

Determine the fate of the Martian colonization effort in the dynamic single-player campaign mode. Multiple types of CEOs, each with unique traits and abilities, deliver many hours of discovery into their motivations and how they intend to dominate the future of Mars.

Experience New Adventure in Multiplayer

Turn your friends into frenemies! With a robust and exciting multiplayer mode that can support up to eight players, no two games of Offworld Trading Company are the same! The market fluctuates depending on which of the four starting corporations you and your opponents choose and what resources you accumulate. Strategy is key, and tenuous alliances between rivals are easily broken when the opportunity arises.

Control the Market before your Competition Controls You

In Offworld Trading Company, market forces are your weapons, not guns or bombs. The real-time player driven market is your sword and your shield here. In order to win, you will need to make tough choices on what resources to acquire, what goods to build and sell, how to interact with the planet's thriving underworld, and what stocks to acquire and when. With over a dozen different resources available and a constantly changing market economy, no two paths of victory are alike -- each game holds a different “key” to dominating your competition.

Enjoy a Rich Soundtrack from a Grammy Award Winning Composer

Transport yourself to Mars and immerse yourself in the battle for big business with an incredible soundtrack from composer Christopher Tin (Baba Yetu, Civilization IV). This retro-futuristic score mixes orchestra instrumentals, piano, and synthesizers while utilizing unique pitch-dives and other electronic treatments. All of these unique elements gives Offworld a truly otherworldly tone. Check out the full interview here: http://www.mohawkgames.com/2016/04/26/christopher-tin-goes-offworld/
