Calzone Update - Patch Notes_EN - Assemble-MrT - 20-04-2018

Dear Players,

after several beta (“Preview”) updates, we now update the main, default version of the game. The Calzone update includes all fixes and feature updates from our “Preview” - Beta releases from 29th of March - 16th of April. It includes lots of bug fixes, changes to supply management as well as usability enhancements.


  • The symbols above the heads of citizens now also display the duration of specific thoughts.

  • The player can now turn on and off the lines between warehouses and marketing spots to the restaurant via a button on the minimap.

  • A pizza on the menu card now shows how many pizzas can be baked with the current stock.

  • A pizza on the menu card now shows how many pizzas can be baked with a full stock, according to the current delivery preference. This makes the effect of the delivery prioritization directly visible.

  • The menu card manager interface now contains information about the total number of pizzas that can be baked based on current inventory.

  • The menu card manager interface now contains information about the total number of pizzas that can be baked with a full inventory.

  • The storage manager now includes the ability to empty a certain percentage of the storage, for example, to make room for the ingredients of pizzas that have recently been added to the menu.

  • The graphical representation of the inventory in the game world has been revised and now indicates the utilization of the storage in percent. This allows visually appealing objects to be used instead of the previous colorful "pillow boxes".

  • The UI above the restaurant storage now has a checklist that identifies the three biggest issues: you can only bake a few pizzas when the storage is full, the average quality of the ingredients is poor, and the storage contains ingredients that are no longer needed and thereby block storage space.

  • Balancing: The price preferences of each target group have been adjusted to achieve a more realistic result. This also slightly increased the difficulty of the game as a whole.

  • Balancing: The capacity of a storage rack has been increased from 100kg to 150kg to allow for more different ingredients on a pizza.

  • Balancing: The speed and delivery quantity has been adjusted by the warehouse staff

  • Guests who would like to order a pizza that cannot be baked at the moment, because ingredients are missing, choose the next best pizza from the menu as long as it meets a minimum rating.

  • The warning triangle for too many different ingredients on the menu card is now disabled as it was misleading.

  • The output for the available stock on the menu card is now marked red and shows a tooltip if the ingredients for a pizza cannot be delivered because the stock is already full. This is particularly important when a new pizza is placed on the menu while the restaurant is running.

  • The capacity of warehouses has been increased.
Steam Cloud
  • Saved games are now stored cross-platform in the cloud. This means that game progress is transferred to the cloud no matter which platform you are on. Prior to this change, savegames were only stored per operating system in the cloud.

  • Saves are now also stored in SteamOS / Linux in the cloud
Corrupt game data
  • The game informs the player about corrupt game data and returns it to the main menu when trying to load it instead of getting stuck in the loading screen.
File system
  • When saving various game data, the previous versions are backed up.

  • If game data should not be readable by the file system, either the backup files are accessed or the data is to be reconstructed
Pizza Cart
  • The pizza cart restocks its ingredients only shortly before opening automatically.

  • The player can restock the pizza cart actively by paying a small fee.

  • The supply tab in the pizza cart user interface now contains a note on how restocking works.

  • Balancing: The capacity of the pizza cart has been increased from 100kg to 200kg

  • The pizza cart will display when the storage is refilled.

  • The pizza cart now has an user interface in the world that should inform the player about mistakes or issues.[Image: ?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-forma...olor=black]

  • The AI behaviour has been improved.

  • AI: Opponents explore advertising measures earlier now
Bug fixes

  • Problems with the placement preview in the architect have been fixed.

  • Other issues that cause guests not to be served correctly at high speed have been resolved.
