Another Major Release (over 200 bug fixes)

I have spent the last 48 hours bug fixing, major overhaul.  New release 1.0.2.12 in a .ZIP, or .EXE (installer).

This release should stabilize 99% of the issues, so keep reporting any bugs you may find.  When I first wrote the code I focused on structure, now I was able to come back and clean it up really nice.

 

Major Update Available

Check out our Downloads Page to get version 1.0.2.9.  This release notes are as follows:

  • 4 Modes coded (Random, Scenario, Tutorial, Level Editor), all functional

  • Incorporating a bit of my old code to begin to add some game-play.  As the game matures, the scenarios will expand exponentially
  • Level Editor is fully functional, the only thing missing is adding doors, linking the Scenario Jobs, and Compiling as a Level / Scenario, however all items you place can be used as a level, so please let me know what you guys make up.
  • Major bug fixes across the board, found only 1 after compiling which is minor.  You need to disable water while below z = 0, it is a simple handle which will soon be corrected

SpecialFX / Sound Engine MOD Added

We added a SpecialFX system that pretty much lets you create any type of special effect in the game. Its pretty fun messing around with, there is a lot you can do with it.

Message from the Developer Garrett:
I coded the specialFX engine for Computer Repair Simulator. Users can now add some pretty cool effects to objects and the world, including lightning bolts, smoke, fire, rain, snow, fog, ice, weird space things, etc.

Now imagine working on a computer in the simulator and getting zapped, BAM! SPECIALFX flies across the screen creating a sense of urgency to stop being electricuted.

Game Updater Complete

We coded a game updater so that after the next release, you don’t need to keep installing the game from scratch and losing your player data.  You can now update the game right in the interface.  You may still download the installer, but these would be in cases for new players and users who need to reinstall the game due to “modding failure”.  Here is a little video.

Skills + Toolbelt Update

We linked more skills and added a toolbelt / quick access tool bar to rapidly deploy frequently used items.  We are also working on the auto updater for the game, along with a little work on inventory.

 

 

Add Hardware Mod / Shop DONE!!!

Finally we have completed the mods to allow us and users to add their own custom hardware ranging from computers, computer parts, servers, racks/cabinets, KVM, UPS, to PCBs, Electronic Components, Silkscreen, Certifications, etc.  This is huge, adding new hardware will be EXTREMELY EASY, no hard code.  Have a look at some of the images.
