Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

Great to see some new FFF! I was initially worried the new Tips & Tricks screen might overwhelm new players, making them decide they don't really want to read this intimidating "homework" before playing, rendering the long list much less effective. Good call to keep them as simple as necessary in th...

Re: Resetting mini-tutorial popups?

I found it on a second device, where the tutorial progress had not yet been synchronised.
And also, as Zavian mentioned, the zip download from the website should contain all default values. So that's an option to look them up too. :)

Re: Resetting mini-tutorial popups?

For those using Steam on Windows, the player-data.json file exists twice. In case someone finds this useful (for this, or unlocking all tutoral levels etc.): It works for me by setting the relevant values in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\[user number]\427520\remote\player-data.json Such as "...

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

Crazy to imagine how long this has been part of my life; for over 6 years I read the Friday Facts almost always the same day it was published. So often they were great and insightful reads or gave something new to learn about game design and software development, etc. Thank you for the journey! Reme...

Re: Friday Facts #352 - New website

Do you consider updating the Early Access info box on Steam? While it won't be there for long anymore, it could say the set release date there. Also it still mentions plans for a long-form campaign in 1.0. Looking forward. I always loved the dark background texture on your website, that one will be ...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

region-specific prices x 1000 How well does this work though? Steam hasn't been supporting gifts across regions with a significant price difference for years now. Sale events are a "legitimate" method to get cheap games. "Legitimate", as in selling steam gifts is a violation of the Steam Subscriber...

Re: Friday Facts #303 - Under 100 bugs (but still not stable)

But the FFF and the linked article tell us ! According to G2A : potentially 0.02% of the keys they sell are illegitimate. According to Wube : A whopping 10% of chargebacks. (That would be ~3k website purchases out of ~600k Steam purchases in 2016 then?) Whether this number is accurate is yet anothe...

Re: When we will get steam trading card ?

Even though it'd be Steam exclusive, I doubt many non-Steam players would mind. You only get some artwork which exists outside of Steam too. Many Steam users don't seem to care either anyway. However, the badges and bonuses have to be prepared and the Art department is already working hard on stuff ...

I know it's gimmicky, but is the zoom feature used when pressing the M button? Maybe the delay would be a pain though....

Re: Achievements not quite working right

@123robert321 You will probably get Steam achievements again when playing on another save that has never had mods. Something else you could do is to modify your current save file so achievements for Steam are triggered again. I don't know whether it'll work if you still have the mods active, or whet...

Yes, they will. It's likely they will already be there in the first release of 0.13.

Re: Friday Facts #125 - Achievements

@TheGecko66 Hi! Achievements haven't been officially released yet as far as I know. You can see them on Steam, but I don't think you can unlock them yet. I assume that's the main reason. But it's true that there seem to be few achievements to get early on. We'll just have to see how it turns out. :)...
