Slanted roofs and code modding is officially out. You can read more about code mods in my last announcement.

I tested Software Inc. on the latest version of Ubuntu and had some issues launching it, which was fixed by forcing fullscreen mode and re-launching and restarting until it just started working, which I guess is par for the course. The launch parameter to force fullscreen is: "-screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080 -disableresolution", but switch out 1920 and 1080 with your screen resolution. When the game launches successfully you can set the game to fullscreen in the graphics options and remove the launch parameters, if you so desire.

Alpha 10.8.4 fixes
  • Fixed duplicating outdoor areas
  • Fixed having to re-validate mods when using RELOAD_DLL_MOD


Full changelog for Alpha 10.7 and 10.8
  • Added slanted roofs
  • New Autumn track by Sinnott Soundworks
  • Added 2 new startup maps, a garage and a skyscraper
  • Basements are now separated for blueprints and cloning
  • Doubled starting cash on easy mode
  • Changing team arrival and leave times will now take immediate effect
  • Whether project management makes a product in-house will now depend on base product


UX changes
  • Build menu category list now uses thumbnails instead of checkboxes and text
  • Added calendar window when date is clicked to see employee and staff working hours
  • Ability to manage staff room assignment from staff window
  • Pressing the focus button (space by default) now cycles between all selected objects
  • Ability to highlight unsupported rooms if cloning or blueprint creation fails


Fixes
  • Fixed room grouping bugging out when re-grouping rooms

  • Various other fixes


Modding changes
Code modding
  • Added system for compiling C# in-game and securing access to certain types
  • More confirmation has been added before loading new or changed dll mods
  • Added code mods to the Steam workshop
  • ModMeta is now an Abstract Class rather than an Interface and the FloorMod has been updated to show examples
  • DLL mods will now be queried to save and load data from save files
  • Changed WindowManager interface to avoid misuse of active window lists that would cause crash (Use OnlyHide, StartHidden, Shown and OnClose to control lifecycle)
  • Game assembly now includes xml documentation to help develop dll mods in Visual Studio (Only some of the codebase have been commented so far, mostly UI stuff)
  • Improved logged message when an error occurs loading a dll mod


XML modding
  • Deprecated mesh and snappoint Parent tag in furniture mods and added Parent ATTRIBUTE to all tags that searches everything in the furniture with a name(Use ComponentName tag to name Meshes and InteractionPoints, Name tag for Transforms)
  • Multiple and custom lights for modded furniture using the LampScript's Lights variable(will automatically find all light components in a furniture if not manually set, at the expense of performance)
  • Modded furniture can now optionally have the IsIconic variable set to an array of category names, if it should be used as a thumbnail for custom categories
