Version 1.5.0 Sports Update is here! And future.

Hello! Here is sports update patch note.


Bigger changes:
- Now you can create your very own Formula team. Formula team will need money for a car developing and drivers. If your season is successful you will get prize money. But that's not only thing that you will get. Your company brand value will skyrocket and same happens to your products. So you will get huge marketing boost from here.

- Football team. Football team will need money for players and facilities. Here is same thing. If your season is successful you will get huge prize money and your marketing will get huge boost.

- I made huge update for product points system. Main priority was that in future it will not be possible to sell milk for 1000€ price.

New things.
- Now you can't choose electricity prize yourself. Electricity price will go now up and down with markets and your electricity will always sell in market price.

- Power stations will now automatically hire workers that they need to work. So you don't need to worry about that.

- Plan is to remove more numbers from game and change them to text. The first thing changed is in the shops, you will now get text feedback on whether your product price is good or bad.

- We wanted to help players in Raw Materials section too. Now you don't need to go in there and add price. Price will be market value always, but you can choose present value of market value. I mean if you want to sell oil for 90% of the market value and market value is 10€ you will sell oil for 9€.

- Own products page you see now how good price is, not product points.

- Now when you go to "Change salary" page you see what workers wish for salary.

- Huge optimization. I personally get 30% better results now

- Now you can add five floors to apartments with one click.

- You can now add 31 floors in apartments.

Bug fixes
- AI started to manufacture it's own products in factory which it was renting.

- If you had CEO and you give the CEO rights to price controls and add profit goal to 30%, CEO increased prices by 3000%.

- More than 5 reactors can now be built.

- Coal power plant can’t have more than 5 engines.

- AI chose product prices little bit wrong. I made few changes to this.

- If you set music volume to zero from settings music volume was really 1%.

- AI build iron mines on coal slots.

- AI hire more and more workers to raw material building if production was too small. Real problem was logistic.

- If you fire CEO for asking more salary he’d leave your company but his ghost was still in company.



Community help and future
Now i hope you will tell how your Sports careers start so i can fix and optimize if needed.


The next updates will focus more on balancing the new features released with this update, and general optimization and improvements to existing systems. The users have asked for more focus on the basics, so I’ll focus on those mainly for a while now. It’s unlikely I’ll be working on any new features in the near future so don’t expect them, instead I’ll be fully focusing on working on improving the systems and features already in place.

Sports update release plans

Hello!

I told you about BusinessMan new Sports update over mounth ago and now i can tell you that update is in Closed Alpha testing. If all go fine update will be out in next week.

Update have big changelog and i will release full changelog when update is out, but here is main things about this udpate.

Formula team
Now you can create your very own Formula team. Formula team will need money for a car developping and drivers. If your season is succesfull you will get prize moneys. But that's not only thing what you will get. Your company brand value will get huge kick to sky and same happen your all products. So you will get huge marketing help from here.

Formula team is very expensive and it's good to make at least 1billion free money when you start your own formula team. Because first seasons will be very expensive and you will not get any success in season because your car is not so good.

Football team
Football team. Football team will need money to players and facilities. Here is same thing. If your season is successfully you will get huge prize money and your marketing will get huge boost.

Football team is not so expensive that formula, but my recommendation is that you made 300-500million free money to use your football team. First seasons can be very expensive. But when your facilities level rise you can save money with lower player budget.



Community help
I really hope you will like this update. And if you have ideas what you want to see in BusinessMan in future please go to forum and share your ideas. I have plans still to update BusinessMan whole 2019 year. One plan is still in UI. I want to rework whole UI in future.

About This Game

What is the BusinessMan game?


First i want to say that this game is not funny or beautiful and it don't even try to be it. BusinessMan is game, where you make Business. It's main think is in Business and economy. Can you survive and make company which make profit?

In BusinessMan, you are an entrepreneur among others. You can for example start off by investing your initial 20k€ smartly or try to become a chairman in some company. BusinessMan is a simple business simulation game.

Once you're a chairman, you start making regular income, but the biggest incomes naturally lie behind the greatest of risks.

Different ways of making money in BusinessMan

You can invest in the stocks market
You can invest in real estate
You can build stores and sell others products
You can make a factory and produce goods for sale
You can build a farm and grow goods for sale
You can build a research plant to improve on existing products
You can gather different kinds of resources, like oil, wood, iron, coal etc.
You can build different kinds of power plants, coal power, windmills and nuclear plants.

As you can see, there are many ways to get rich.

Make as many companies as you see fit


BusinessMan won't limit your imagination in company structure sizes. You can make a different company for each production, one company to rule some of them or just one company to manage it all. It's all up to you how you want to arrange your companies.

See the city grow and conquer more areas


The city keeps evolving around you and there are only so many lots to build on before they run out. The city also behaves dynamically, so if there is unemployment, people won't be able to afford buying things.

Design products


You'll have to improve on your designs all the time in your research plant. Also, it's good to publish new products every now and then too to keep your good reputation up along with hype for new products. If you keep releasing the same product over and over again, people will grow tired of it really fast and lose interest in your offerings.

Laws and lawsuits


The laws keep changing in the game. For example, the state might require cleaner technologies and better filters to be used to proceed with the production. Some companies might sue you for stealing their ideas too and whatnot.

Others


The business simulation in BusinessMan is heavily based on cruel number crunching, numbers that never lie and numbers that tell everything there is to be told about another company. Be careful not to get fined or in trouble with the law, it might ruin your reputation. Even a genius might be hard to employ if he has a bad reputation. Take loans when the interests are low and invest the money smartly. Being a big company is a tough task if you don't know what you're doing. Collect the prizes from the yearly events, get titles like "innovator of the year". Secure other businesses by investing into them. Because if you are a reputable company, people will trust more in the companies you are invested into too. Help new companies start up by making investments in them. Create a large chain of companies to fight your way from a small town to the top of the world.
