Quattro Formaggi Update - Patch Notes



Steam BuildID: 2838771
AssemblyVersion: 1.0.6731.25871
Codename: Default - Quattro Formaggi Update

Dear Players,

the time has come for our big, “Quattro Formaggi” update. After several updates and testings on our “Preview” beta branch, we now roll out all additions and changes to all players as well as adding some new features and content. This update is based on four pillars: First, achieving better playing experience by including comfort features and reworking parts of the UI. Next, we overhauled our employee system, so employees have motivation and health you need to take care of, while also giving you the ability to let your workforce work overtime. Furthermore we worked on better long term motivation, giving you game events and catastrophes that might trigger in the free game. Last but not least we added a bunch of new content including several new dynamic missions, which are optional missions you can solve in the free mode of the game, as well as a plethora of new furniture assets including seasonal summer content, an aquarium, a flipper and plenty of other stuff.

While playtesting we encountered some bugs and balancing issues as seen in the “Known Issues” section but we want to give you the update as soon as possible and decided for patching said issues as soon as possible.

This is only a short summary of all the changes, for more detail checkout the changelog below:

Changes

General
  • Cooks now have a visual effect when baking a pizza.
  • A new citizen thought was added: Citizen wants to enter the restaurant but it is closed.
  • Graph handling in charts has been improved for the player.
  • The warning that an employee has already worked today has been removed from the schedule in the restaurant inspector as it is no longer necessary.
  • The comment stream in the bakery has been improved and now uses visual indicators to quickly tell if the comment is positive, negative or average.
  • The chef user interface in the bakery now has the same citizen type selected as the smartphone when opened.
  • The statistics section in the manager now has a pizza statistic per restaurant that tells how often a pizza has been ordered, how often a pizza has been served and outputs revenue, profit and production costs for a pizza.
  • Improved the preview of characters in the user interface.
  • Fixed carpets in Paris.
  • Furniture can now be placed on carpets.
  • The employee inspector now outputs the working times.
  • The schedule in the employee manager now has an indicator for the current time.
  • Warehouses can now be restocked actively by pressing a button in the warehouse inspector.
  • Restocking of warehouses can now be set to automatic in the warehouse inspector.
  • AI can now handle low motivation and low health of employees.
  • AI can now train employees.
  • Added a simple achievement overview in the main menu to keep track of achievement progress and giving a shortcut to Steam’s achievement overview.
  • Improved the visual effect for low health on employees.
  • The campaign info screen in the bakery has been moved to the bottom of the screen.
  • The size of citizen thought icons now stays the same on all zoom factors. This enables a better overview when being zoomed in.
  • The eating of pizzas is now visualized. Pizzas also lie on plates now.

Feature: Game Events & Taste Change
  • Players can now enable game events in free mode. Based on a chance set by the player the game will trigger several events that will challenge the player e.g. by ingredients that can’t be delivered. Game events are disabled for the campaign.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1403533198
  • Added events that make ingredients of specific ingredient groups unavailable for a certain time.
  • Added an event that causes a lot of employees to become sick at once.
  • Added an event that causes stored ingredients of a specific restaurant to become rotten.
  • Added an event that causes furniture of a specific restaurant to be destroyed.
  • Added events that make a specific citizen type leave the city for a certain time.
  • Players can now enable taste change for citizens in the free mode. This will cause citizens to change their favorite ingredients over time. Citizens will also change their preferences for ingredient types once in a while.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1403528406
  • Taste change is enabled for chapter 12 of the campaign and deactivated for all other chapters.

Feature: Employees
  • Employees can now be trained in the inspector or in the manager to increase quality and speed attributes. Only one attribute can be improved at once. Employees work at half quality and half speed while being trained.
  • Employees now have a motivation attribute that decreases for all employees of a currently working shift if a guest leaves before receiving a pizza and vice versa. Motivation increases while an employee is at home. Low motivation reduces quality and speed of an employee.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1377598523
  • Employees now have a health attribute that decreases when the employee is at work and slightly increases when the employee is at home.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1377599217
  • Employees immediately quit work and go home if their health value reaches zero.
  • The player is able to cure employees by granting them one day off. The employee will return with full health after he skipped one working day.
  • Employees now have flexible working times. Working times can be scaled between 6 and 12 hours.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1377598922
  • Added new notifications that support the changes on the employee feature.
  • Employees should now work reliably.
  • An analytics view has been added to the employee manager to give a quick overview about employee attributes.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1377596511
  • The employee schedule in the manager can now be sorted by motivation or health.
  • Employees now have expression effects that show if an employee has low motivation or low health.
  • Service employees now have an expression effect that show up if they are very friendly when they take an order. This is also connected to visualize the positive effect on waiting times.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1377598151
  • The player can now actively manipulate the serve order for guests by either using the inspector (by clicking on a guest) or using the new user interface in the sub menu of the menu card manager.

  • Changing the ‘Pizzas per guest’-value in freemode now also affects the capacity of the restaurant storage, the warehouse storage and the suppliers.

Bug fixes

General
  • Graphs in charts should no longer reactivate if a chart is updated and graphs were hidden by the player.
  • Repositioned a hydrant standing on the street in Rome.
  • The pizza cart restock button no longer increases in costs with each time the inspector is opened.
