It is almost Christmas and I’m loving it. Did you notice the Carols, Candles and Candy DLC which you can download for free on Steam? It plays Christmas songs randomly across the existing radio stations during December.

Song list:

1. Houston River Jazz Collective - "Silent Night"
2. Jazz in-clave - "Holy Night"
3. Martin Carlberg - "The First Noel"
4. Lily La Roux - "Jolly Old St Nicholas"
5. Elijha MotI - "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day"

We also did not forget about the Chirpy! Do you like the reindeer ribbon?

For Jazz lovers there is also new radio station available, more information here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ilable-jazz-boatman-is-back-swinging.1058984/

We released some bug fixes at the same time:

Budget Panel - Money Spent by Tourists

You gave feedback that with our budget panel overhaul the money used by tourists is not shown anymore. So with the Christmas patch we added a new tab called “Income from Money Spent by Tourists”.


The panel shows how much tourists spend money on Commercial Zones and Public Transportation as well as what percentage of the total income comes from tourism. The public transportation usage by tourists was not actually shown before, but we figured you might like the addition!

I’m sorry the tab has not been yet translated, but we did not want to keep the tab from you guys even if it is only in English at the moment.

It plays Christmas songs randomly across the existing radio stations during December.

Could this be expanded to work outside of december? PDS games that have this, like CK2, enable this(and other stuff) by having "context music" setting. When context music is disabled, you get christmas songs in july, and viking themed songs when playing in greece.
