1.3 News



So i've promoised a feature list for version 1.3 so I must now deliver! The following is in the game and just being tested. There might be some smaller features that sneak in later on.

Headline features

Speed improvements
- 1.3 is dramatically faster than 1.2 even though it processes nearly double the amount of data!

Complete rewrite of sales code
- Some of the oldest code was destroyed and rewritten improving process speed and results.

Streaming services
- This is the main feature of 1.3 and was one hell of a challenge to get this in because what people dont remember is this game has individual charts for 138 countries across all continents. It does not do what other games do, its not a random number generator. This generates tones of data and it needs to be processed fast.

With streaming comes 20 streaming providers and their own terms for payment.

Pride shows
- Pride shows around the world give artists a way to promote themselves. You won't find gangsta rappers here though.

Big events added
- Big events such as a song for the World cup have been added. Events can also be added in the editor.

Band members can go solo for period of time
- Yes finally adding it.

Add end of year run down report
- The end of year report sums up the year across sales etc

New Genres EDM (Dance renamed), Grime

Writing update - Mix sessions
- For EDM, Trance etc artists you can now complete mix sessions to develope new tracks to get ready before production.

- Through points earned now unlock legends if you wish such as the Beatles or Led Zepplin.

Rewrite of retirements
- New and improved, this is a complete rewrite hopefully fixing all the issues seen before!

Instagram added
- Long with Facebook and Twitter Instagram has been added, this does influence popularity.

Saving auto backup added
- When you save it takes a snapshot you can restore to if there any problems.

Fan meet ups
- You can now book some fan meetups to help promote the artist

Most things have been rewritten
- You wont maybe notice but I can promise I have altered most of pretty much everything in the games code to get it faster and more efficent.
