CO word of the week #23 - 48/2016 + Patch notes 1.6.0

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Hi Everyone,

This week at Colossal Order: Happy! Tired. Excited! And we can't wait to hear what you think of the Scenario editor and Natural Disasters! I know you are mostly eager to read the patch notes, so here they are below.

Come say hi at Paradox Fan Gathering on Friday if you are there!

Cheers,
Mariina

Does this result in some noticeable benefits for the player or is it mainly for making future development / code maintenance easier (or something similar)?
At least Linux users should get noticeable performance improvements.

We always keep the engine upgraded to the latest stable release of Unity so the future development goes as smoothly as possible. It also allows us to utilize the latest features if needed as well as fixes bugs in the engine.

Umm, I haven't checked it in game, but it seems that you didn't change the icon for parks. Could you please change this tree icon
upload_2016-11-29_16-38-46.png
to something else because the trees aren't even located in that sub menu anymore. I always get confused even though I know that the trees are in the landscaping menu. :confused:

You could do with some other UI improvement too. I'm hoping for a complete revamp. Here are some of the things that almost drive me crazy in the main menu alone...I mean it's not literally unplayable but it shows how unpolished and ugly the current UI looks.

upload_2016-11-29_16-44-35.png
Why does it say DLCs if the word DLC is supposed to mean Downloadable Content? Is it like Downloadable contents?
upload_2016-11-29_16-45-37.png
Why are some of these icons rounded and others blocky? That last one even misses the money icon...
upload_2016-11-29_16-47-13.png
There's a weird little gray line going through this button o_O

I think this concept is quite golden. :cool: It's centered, clean and consistent.

Nice work so far, but I'm somehow unhappy to not being able to create custom helicopters the way I'd love to as it seems there is no way to change the rotor mesh or its position. I hope some feature to edit such assets (also in the wind turbine) will be added in -f5 / -f6

I'd really love to recreate some real life helos at some point :)

I probably have to wait too. It sucks because this is my favorite game by far. Colossal should really implement the most basic mods into the base game so that there wouldn't be so many essential little mods...

Maybe somebody from CO could take a look at these if I list them here: :)
  • Advanced Vehicle Options (you have to have this if you want to disable the vanilla vehicles)
  • District Policies Highlighting (really handy UI mod)
  • Elevated Stops Enabler (the fact that you cannot place a stop on elevated roads seems almost like a bug for me)
  • Improved Mods Panel (with this one the mods panel is much nicer to use)
  • Pause on load (the loading times with assets are so ridiculous that i would like to see this as an option in the game)
  • Surface Painter (you promised us the pavement tool when skylines was still in alpha, it would be nice to have it in game)
  • Toggle Traffic Lights (super simple mod, sometimes it's just better to have an intersection without the lights)

this is main reason why i rarely specialise industry, except farming and forestry. i'm not really keen on infinite oil since running out of oil is realistic, it just happens a bit too quickly

and to get back on topic
"Load/save/new -panels now support sorting asset list by name or modification time" this pleases me :)

How about giving modders more than 3 minutes to update?
