Good Company Update 0.6.3 Patch Notes

Upgradable Tables

  • Players can now upgrade crafting tables directly from the respective table panel.
  • To upgrade a table, a module needs to be selected.
  • Based on the selected module, the table will be upgraded to the next, faster table.
  • The upgrade will cost the difference between the original table and the new one.
  • Upgrading a table will cancel the crafter’s current progress and restart it.
  • Previously set logistics connections will remain active on the upgraded table.
  • Upgrading tables will not be possible if the construction menu is not available.

Quick Hire

  • All workstations now have a quick hire button.
  • A random employee will be hired and assigned to the selected table.
  • Every table also has a quickfire button.
  • This option will be unlocked once employee hiring is available.

Advisor System

  • From time to time the advisor, Lumo, will pop-up on Monday mornings.
  • The advisor informs you if there are potential basic problems in your company.
  • We will be considering expanding this feature with more tips in the future.
  • If possible, the advisor will show you an example of the detected problem.
  • There are 6 tips that can currently be triggered:
  • Not all products are getting sold from the Outgoing Zone.
  • Production Employees are inefficient and have to walk too much.
  • Production Employees are missing Module/Component XYZ.
  • Not enough of Base Material XYZ being ordered in Incoming Zone.
  • Logistics connection isn’t served, because it is not in range of a Logistics Point.
  • Hint: Sell over-produced Modules/Components XYZ.

Other

  • While placing new equipment, the respective holograms now have an improved preview for where the object can be placed.
  • All production and research times are now displayed as in-game days.
  • Mouse confinement setting is now ‘off’ by default.
  • Info browser now has tooltips for materials & modules.

Balancing

  • Inventory transfer times are now 1s (0.066 days), no matter how many materials are being transferred.
  • Previously it was 1s per different material/module/product.
  • Metal Cases sampling time has been fixed. The base sampling time was too low:
  • 0.46s -> 1.46s (9.2s -> 29.2s on the first Analysis Table)
  • Level 3 got re-balanced to provide a more steady income:
  • Calculator markets provide more income now.
  • Market requirements for Calculators and Pocket Computers were reduced.
  • Markets for the ‘Welfare Survival’ challenge have been updated:
  • Removed markets beyond cleaning/transport bots.
  • All markets progress slightly slower.
  • All market requirements increase less drastically.
  • All markets have an increased profit amount.

General Fixes

  • Calculation of camera bounds has been fixed. Previously, some unintentional camera behaviour could occur at the edges of some maps.
  • Sometimes the mouse containment setting used wrong data to apply the containment. Now it should always fit the actual game window.
  • Challenge completion achievement did not trigger properly (4/7 challenges done)
  • The next challenge you complete should reward all missing achievements.
  • Fixed an issue where the game crashed when returning to the main menu.
  • When sales for specific products were above 65 535 G the amount looped to 0 G.
  • Sales for a single product can now be ~16 000 000 G.
  • Fixed an issue where the game would crash when switching modules on a crafting station.
  • Fixed a UI-scaling issue with high score tables making some buttons inaccessible.
  • Blueprint Designer button is now gated properly depending on whether the Drafting Table is available.
  • Hitbox issues, mainly with the chemistry table, have been fixed. The hitboxes should now behave more consistently

Level & Challenge Fixes

  • Level 3, Milestone 8: the Metal Case (Tier 3) was counted as a viable module to complete the current task (reaching a production of 14 Tier 4 modules every week)
  • Level 4, Milestone 7: the goal unit [produced/week] was wrong. It has been changed to display the correct unit [produced].
  • Level 6, Milestone 1: progress counted ‘total production’, which was wrong. This has been corrected to ‘weekly production’.
  • Level 6, Milestone 5: progress counted ‘Courier Bots’ while it should have been only counting ‘Delivery Drones’. This is also fixed now.

Text Fixes

  • Welding Table now has a proper description, the localization string was broken.
  • [FR] Level 6, Milestone 4 the ‘[goalTarget]’ replacement was broken.
