Re: [1.1.0] Game fails to remove blueprint that is too old

This is a 1.0 save game...

I see now why you might have said 'Not a bug'. But this is a 1.0 save game. It's only the blueprint that is somehow flagged as the older version. Don't ask my how o why.

Re: [1.1.0] Main menu box dragged to the bottom of the screen can't be dragged back up

1. Drag to the bottom of the screen. 2. Notice you can still drag it back up while the current video is playing. 3. After the video changes, you can no longer drag it back up again. Definite bug. I left the top of the menu bar showing as well as all of the 'Continue' button showing and still experie...

Re: [1.1.0] Game fails to remove blueprint that is too old

It says it removed the blueprint.. If you are just going to blank the blueprint, then say: We blanked the blueprint. Delete at your leisure, or you will see this "fake message" for all of eternity. Simple good UI design, right? How am I supposed to know which blueprint is too old so I can ...

Re: [18.0] Sync mods to save fails when Mods folder not present

Hmm... I don't think the game was running when I deleted the mods folder. Sorry, I wasn't more clear. I was fairly certain the exact sequence was: 1. Rename or delete the mods folder 2. Start the game 3. Load a game and Sync Mods to Save 4. Game appears to be downloading the mods 5. Game loads with ...

Re: prevent placing curve track after/at train station

If the game allows a situation where a train won't go to a train stop that has what appears to be continuous rail between the train and the train stop, this is undoubtedly a bug.

Re: Is 20% evolution normal for 5 hours gameplay?

I wanted to do an all green game from the very start. So, I wanted green power. I thought I would build the smallest possible base until I got solar panels for power. But I decided I didn't want a daytime only base. So, that meant I needed batteries for accumulators. Efficiency modules are great for...
