  • Reworked how you earn chapters of the backstory (Historical Documents).  There's a lot going on under the hood, but basically you still earn them by exploring Ruins (Ancient Ruins on land or Sunken Ruins in the oceans), but now you find them within specific randomly chosen ruins, rather than the timer-based approach we had before.

Content Update #5 - Quality of Life (22/2/2021)[edit | edit source]

LOADING CHANGES

  • Loading a save game/starting a new one no longer makes the game freeze
  • Once a game is loaded/generated you now need to "Click to start"

BALANCE CHANGES

  • Meals now only give ++ Happiness (down from +++) as they're much easier to make than Smoothies
  • The amount of Pollution a building puts out is affected by the amount of work actually being done (eg if the building hasn’t got all its workers or if they’re sad, it produces less pollution. If you've got a full complement of happy Peeps working really fast, it'll produce more)

TUTORIAL CHANGES

  • The tutorial now goes all the way to the end of the game!
  • Tutorial text about demolishing forests is clearer
  • Added a hint system - hints will pop up when the right situation applies. They appear twice each, and will appear in non-tutorial games.
  • Added tutorial steps to tell the player about the details panel, overlays and top bar resource dropdowns
  • Added a discovery pointing out automation/filtering are mutually exclusive
  • Changed around tutorial around demolishing a Boulder and building the Library, so the player learns things a little better
  • "Build a short road" tutorial goal now says how many roads need to be placed
  • Added a log of all the tutorial steps, with ticks for completed steps. This is available even if you're not playing a tutorial game
  • Clothing tutorial now requires 4 Cotton fields and two Weavers, as that gives you full production rate for clothing
  • Removed/altered the two tutorial steps that just made you wait for 30 seconds. Now it's all action all the time
  • Added comment to the tutorial about colonising your first island that contains instructions about clicking colonise etc
  • Tutorial arrows are a bit more bouncy and obvious

TEXT CHANGES

  • Updated description of Explorers hut
  • Altered Discovery text on putting a ship next to the Crystal island
  • Altered a few tooltips to be clearer
  • Improved question when demolishing upgraded roads
  • Added a better warning about Ships that can't move because they're loading passengers
  • Improved tooltip for when a Peep is at home waiting for food or drink
  • Training Ground description mentions the Minotaur now
  • Library description says it is needed on each island to access buildings
  • Renamed the Road Layer tech to Stone Roads, and updated the descriptions of the Stone Road, Power Pole and Decorate Road techs

CONTROL CHANGES

  • Added hotkeys to change building priority/pause/play. They have no default hotkey assigned
  • Improved zoom speed on larger planets
  • Added a new camera control method (go to Options to change it)
  • Added an option to have one set of saved cameras for the whole game (as opposed to one set per planet, which is the default)

GAMEPLAY CHANGES

  • Warehouses can only be upgraded if you've got all the resources freely available on the island (like Accommodation)
  • If you make a shipping lane between two Ports on the same Island, the default Maintain value is Infinite
  • Peeps stop working at Explorer/Library if there's no research on the island
  • Added an info pin to destroyed buildings
  • Ocean tiles now slowly lose any pollution (similar to tiles next to Forests). Good Krakens speed up the process
  • If enough research for a new technology is taken into a Library it will notify you now
  • Ships on a Lane that has multiple attached ships take into account the resources on when calculating how many to take
  • If a building has two available upgrades (Automation/Filtering) you can now replace one with the other
  • Space Whales now eat all the trees in a Forest but don't remove the actual Forest, so it will regrow
  • You can now click-drag when demolishing. Whatever you click on first (building / forest / road) becomes the target and you can only drag onto other entities of the same type. You can also drag over buildings/forests set to be demolished to cancel their demolition. Right click cancels the action
  • Updated things for the Whale Charmer
    • Initial Whale Charmer doesn't make Space Whales target the planet, they start targeting once the first Pylon is constructed
    • As you construct more Pylons, whale attacks get more frequent
    • Building description and Upgrade description mentions these effects now
  • Once a Whale Charmer has started construction, Space Whales aren't always forced to be the largest size anymore
  • Space Whales now have a chance to just fly by without eating anything. They're further away from the planet and rotated away from it when this is the case. This chance is higher while Whale Charmer is under construction
  • You can upgrade Hut->House and House->Apartment by placing the new building on top of an existing one. You can’t upgrade directly from Hut to Apartment though sorry
  • If a planet is being attacked by a Space Whale, and there is a Space Elevator or full Aegis that has worked successfully once already, the Peeps won't run and hide and the player can continue to take actions while the Whale flies past
  • Camera zoom is smoother
  • Cow and Sheep fields now have the Automation upgrade
  • You can now retire Colony ships if they're next to a Port
  • Added a tooltip for Unknown Resources telling you what tech to research to get it
  • Kitchens, Smoothie makers, Marketplaces etc now have a Recipes button that allow them to behave as if they're a previous version of the building. Automated buildings are still sped up though
  • Added a warning if you're trying to build a Protective Elevator in a position where you won't then be able to construct an Astrobaleenium Mine
  • Clicking on an entity (building or whatever) that is the subject of a notification popup will cause the notification to be removed
  • Changed Wood/Oil/Battery power generators so that their production speed is not affected by sad Peeps. We're hoping that this will make it much easier to get out of unhappiness spirals
  • Peeps will now fetch less than a full load of food if it means emptying a building that doesn't produce that food (such as Shelters)
  • Peeps will stop working in Light Tower/Museum/Training Ground once the Guardian on that Island has become friendly
  • In new games, Rusty Hulks now hold 1000 Iron Ore
  • You can now select what Food types the Space Elevator will load
  • All remaining notifications are cleared when you go to the Notification Log, seeing as you can see them all in it

UI CHANGES

  • In Resource Details panel there's now a dropdown allowing you to filter what resources are displayed
  • In Resource Details added rows to summarise the amount of Food + Drink on the island
  • Added a button to the building card to cycle to the next building of that type
  • Removed Action pane when building a new Forest
  • Extra buttons added to allow going between top-bar resources, Resource Flow overlay and resource details panels more easily
  • Added a search function to the places where you're presented with a bunch of resources to pick from.
  • Added filters to the Peep and Building details panels
  • Peep cards and Peep Details panel have icons for the food/drink/luxury a Peep most recently consumed
  • Removed 120% UI scale as some things were just too large. Players that have selected it will still have it, you just can't select it anymore
  • Clicking the Resource Flow Overlay button for a Resource in the Resource Details panel will take you to the selected Island (if you've selected an island in the dropdowns)
  • Added menu option to disable/reset hints
  • Improved the Recipe dialog for Transmogrifiers
  • Removed the Pause button on Resource Caches
  • Added a notification for when a Shelter/Spaceship shelter has unloaded all it's Peeps.
  • Added Oil to the Fertilities list in the top bar
  • Whale attack summary now says how many ships were lost
  • If you attempt to rebind a key function to a key that's already used elsewhere, you get asked if you want to proceed
  • Hungry/thirsty Peeps get an icon in their description about it
  • Dialog for manually loading resources to/from a ship now allows you to type in how many to transfer
  • Added a filter to the Space Elevator so you can choose what food it uses

  • Each ship in the shipping manifest now has a button for removing it from that shipping lane without having to open the Edit Ships dialog
  • If an Island has none of a resource, you can still set how many to reserve for Shipping etc, up to 20 - this is to allow for setting up the island for things like upgrading the Training Ground before you're actually sending the resources there
  • If there's not quite enough space to display a discovery/hint in the stack, they'll be resized if that will help

OVERLAY CHANGES

  • Added a new overlay that shows an Info Pin for every building with it's type
  • Added options to many overlays to turn off parts of the information
  • Added a bunch of extra controls to the Overlays, so you can select which particular parts of (for example) the Pollution or Happiness overlays you want to see

  • Setting high priority on an upgrade site no longer causes the finished building to be in high priority, for buildings that don't have priority - like the Training Ground
  • Info Pin for buildings that were destroyed by whale/sphinx sticks around forever now
  • Added a fix to some issues where the Peep counts in Shipwright/Launchpad are in the wrong position
  • Removed the Cancel button on shipwright/launchpad once you get to the final stage (loading on the resources), as by then you've already built the thing and allowing the player to cancel seems dumb (and it wasn't working anyway)

Content Update #4 - Biomes and Beasties (01/12/2020)[edit | edit source]

Changes to new games only[edit | edit source]

  • Added new biomes (Swamp, Rainforest and Crystal)
    • Swamp biomes are like the Desert but reversed - you can only build smaller buildings on swamp tiles.
    • Rainforests are covered with trees. They give a significant bonus to the production rate of Fields, but that bonus drops the more trees you cut down
    • The Crystal Island... well, you'll see...
  • SIGNIFICANTLY updated the game generation algorithm:
    • Fertilities now tend to cluster on the earlier planets, so that when you reach the edge planets for Purple research you still need to go back to earlier planets to get good food and other important resources
    • Some islands can have Iron+Electronics - no 'Mountains'
    • Things like Oil, Milk, Wool etc tend to be on more difficult islands
    • Tutorial games will always start with 1 grass + 2 desert islands, but non-tutorial games can now have other biomes for the 2nd/3rd islands on the first planet
    • Swamp/desert islands are slightly more common towards the sun
    • Snow/Rainforest islands are slightly more common away from the sun
    • Made lots of things controlled centrally instead of being completely random, so there should be less chance of weird/broken games (once we work out any wrinkles)
    • Added a bunch of new island shapes:
      • Archipelagos
      • Inverted islands (eg the Highlands on the coast, rather than inland)
      • Crescent shaped islands
    • Added a chance for ruined villages to be on islands
    • Added a chance for an extra-hard desert - no green tiles, less trees
    • Added coral reefs
  • Added a difficulty option to change resource availability (Iron, Stone etc)
  • Added a difficulty option for changing pollution rate
  • Added a difficulty option to change how many resources constructing buildings use

Changes on all games (previous & new saves)[edit | edit source]

GAMEPLAY

  • Added something secret when you explore Ancient/Sunken Ruins
  • Added cats and dogs and scorpions and cows and sheep and squirrels and toucans!
    • Peeps will sometimes 'pet' cats and dogs
  • Added a Frog - how many times can you find it?
  • You can plant forests now!
  • Added Automation/Filtering upgrades to a bunch of buildings that were missing them
  • Added a new "Research Institute" building, which:
    • Gives you a timer for the next Space Whale attack
    • Allows you to build things on any island on that planet without a Library
    • Generates a little bit of research in all colours.
  • Peeps now use Luxuries more often (when they're below 'Normal' level happiness rather than below 'Sad')
  • Added Boulders that you demolish for Stone. Demolishing a Forest no longer supplies Stone. Tutorial has been updated
  • Tutorial gives a bit more information about Fatigue
  • Shipping lanes created by dragging a resource in the main shipping view also start with Maintain set to 20
    • Except for Research, because generally you want to send *all* your research to another island
  • Slightly reduced the speed that Pollution increases
  • Buildings stop contributing to pollution once it's higher than their rating - so a Slightly polluting building won't cause any more pollution to a tile that's already at Slightly Polluted or greater
  • Elevators and Bridges can now be built on islands without a Library, and by Peeps without a home, just in case the extra mobility is required

  • Fixed a bunch of issues with loading ships when the ship already contains more of a resource than the lane wants to put on it.

Content Update #3 - Paving the Way (07/10/2020)[edit | edit source]

NEW FEATURES[edit | edit source]

Two new resources - Chemicals and Cement

  • Added new Chemical resource, which is produced from Oil
    • Chemicals have replaced some other resources in pre-existing buildings.
  • Added a new Cement resource, which is produced from Sand and Chemicals
    • Cement is required for many higher level buildings

Roads

  • You can now produce Stone Roads, Decorated Roads and Power Poles. In order to construct them you need the new Road Layer building, which is unlocked when any one of them is researched at the Library.
  • Stone Roads give Peeps a 50% speed boost. They use 1 Stone and 1 Cement.
  • Decorated Roads give Peeps a '+' Happiness boost while walking on them. They use 1 Good Luxury Item.
  • Power Poles will transmit power automatically from Generators to the front of buildings that use Power, so long as there’s a chain of Power Poles connecting the Generator to the building. They use 2 Wood and 1 Electronics.

New Effect - Gloom

  • Added in a new Gloom happiness effect. Some buildings cause surrounding tiles to have a "Gloom" effect on them which makes Peeps less happy. Mostly tall and industrial buildings
    • Apartments have a new adjacency bonus that reduces their Gloom effect if they're connected to a Power grid (but they don't use Power)

New Buildings

  • Chemical Plant - produces Chemicals.
  • Cement Maker - produces Cement.
  • Stepped Warehouse - a new Warehouse that can be constructed over a cliff, with one door at each level!

QUALITY OF LIFE ADDITIONS[edit | edit source]

  • Added the ability to drag out lines of roads and cancel with right-click
  • Added a selection ring when clicking on tiles! Why didn't we do this sooner?!
  • Musicians no longer consume resources each time they go out to work
  • When colonising a new Island, you can now choose any valid visible tile on the island, * not just ones adjacent to the Colony Ship
  • Updated how resources are prioritised to Construction Sites, so they will tend to be fed (and completed) in the order the sites are placed
  • Ship and Peep names can be drawn from text files - in the "C:/Users/<USER>/AppData/LocalLow/Balancing Monkey Games/Before We Leave/" folder, you can create "malePeepnames.txt", "femalePeepnames.txt" and/or "shipnames.txt", with one name per line in the file
  • Resource and Building Details panels are now divided into sections
  • When selecting a resource for a Warehouse or Shipping Lane, the resource selection dialog is divided into sections

  • In Limited Peeps mode Ancient Ruins will no longer give you the Schools technology
  • Loading a game will turn that into your Cloud Save game

    • "Onscreen Camera Controls" shows controls for Zoom/Rotate Camera and Cancel action in the top right corner, to make touch screens more usable
    • "Left Mouse Button to Drag Camera" switches which ‘mouse buttons’ control the camera, in order to make pen/tablets more useable
  • In Resource Details, tooltip for the numbers also contains the numbers
  • Planet cards now show the Resources for the whole Planet, and also show the number of Peeps on the Planet
  • Load/Save game dialog has more space in it now
  • Submarines can now be retired like trade ships
  • Shipping Manifest Add Resource panel behaves more like the Warehouse one - shows already added resources as green rather than hiding them and stuff like that
  • Added a bunch of Quality of Life things to the shipping manifest - buttons to select the ship or port, close buttons on dialogs and stuff like that.
  • Made the Ship card taller
  • Make the Dump Resource button on ships red and gave it the demolish icon

CHANGES[edit | edit source]

  • Cleaners are now less efficient in cleaning up Pollution, but they can be upgraded. The upgraded Cleaner uses Chemicals instead of Water, and is slightly better than the old version
  • Batteries now require Chemicals instead of Iron
  • Whale Charmers now require Batteries in their construction, but then don't need Power to operate
  • Electronics Mines now become available once you invent Tinkering or Power Poles

Changes to Power[edit | edit source]

  • The Power output of the Wood Power Generator has been significantly reduced. The Power output of the Oil Power Generator has been increased slightly
  • Wind and Solar Power Generators have been slightly improved, but also can now be built on any island, although their efficiency degrades. Wind is most efficient on Snow islands, less efficient on Grass, and quite inefficient on Desert islands. Solar is most efficient on Desert islands, less on Grass and less again on Snow.

  • Increased the Power consumption of some end-game buildings

FIXES[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed tooltip on Construct Submarine button
  • Fixed the Keys Settings menu so it accepts clicking a mouse button as the input, in case you want to assign mouse buttons to actions.

1.0096 (01/09/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • SIGNIFICANT OPTIMISATIONS TO SIMULATION AND RENDERING.
  • Lots of work to make the reported Potential demand/production correct - things like buildings adjacency bonuses are taken into account, and potential bonuses from current maximum peep happiness levels

  • Fixed "Creates X per minute" numbers not always matching "X/m" numbers in building+construction cards
  • Fixed a couple of minor internal errors
  • Probably fixed an intermittent issue where Range Lines (e.g. Pollution range lines) would disappear

  • You can now invent the ability to build your own Shelters!! Peeps will go hide in a Shelter if available, which keeps them safe from Space Whales!!

    • Production workers whose output is full will deliver their resources to warehouses
    • Warehouse workers who have nothing to collect will deliver resources to buildings that need it

  • Space Whales will now target any planet, rather than only targeting planets that have Space Elevators

IMPROVEMENTS & BUFFS

  • Altered how adjacency penalties are displayed for pollution etc
  • Initial landing on a new planet doesn't surround the spaceship with roads, so it feels more like you've just arrived
  • Changed how spaceships work for moving and colonising. In particular, you now move the Colony Spaceship to an uncolonized world then click Colonize
  • Moved the Game Rules in the pause menu into their own dialog
  • When you're on an island without a library, made it so the disabled construction buttons still show the icon for the building, and their tooltip contains the building name

  • Allow bridges to be demolished if there's (probably) another valid path to reach the other side
  • Battery Plants will no longer take Power from a Battery Generator on the same island
  • Fixed adjacency bonuses not happening when the neighbouring building is upgraded
  • Discovered that Forests only absorb pollution when they're regrowing a tree. Changed it so that they always absorb pollution (but still very slowly)
  • Fixed a subtle bug that could allow a Peep to load onto a Ship or Spaceship when they shouldn't, which could leave the building they were working in in a bad state
  • Fixed a few cases where you could get a small area of high ground filled up with mines/mountains so there's no space to harvest them from
  • Difficulty settings now have their own separate dialog when creating a new game. Also added some new settings
  • Cloud Saves should be working through the Epic Launcher now!

1.0053 (08/06/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • If multiple ships wind up on the same tile, some of them will quietly reposition to a neighbouring tile
  • Updated a bunch of building models to be prettier

  • Updated announcement dialog to have correct numbers

1.0049 (03/06/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • Overpopulation is now Expectations:
    • Peeps happiness has a min and max, which grows when you invent Houses and again when you invent Tinkering
    • Peeps move/work speed is a sliding scale according to their happiness
    • Expectation thresholds are now 60, 120, 180, 240, but are "greater than" rather than "greater than or equal"
    • Added an Expectations graph to the Peep dropdown in the top bar
    • Updated a bunch of tooltips and notifications

  • Left click outside the panel to close Technology, Details and Shipping Manifest panels
  • When editing the resource for a space shipping lane, it shows the names of the Planets not the Islands where the Landing Pads are places
  • Peeps fetching algorithm is tuned a bit differently.  For example, it will prioritise emptying a Warehouse that contains too many of one resource (because you selected other resources once it was full, for example)
  • Prevented entering a negative number for the Leave/Maintain values when editing a shipping resource.  Also, entering 0 for Maintain changes it back to Infinite mode
  • Fixed a core bug that was showing up as some weird behaviour if you double clicked when demolishing a road
  • Changed how the camera is controlled in Space View.  Also enabled following spaceships and planets in Space View

  • Added a new goal to the tutorial step that asks you to build an Explorer and Library on your second island to also "Establish your village" that completes when you build a Hut
  • Fixed a bug where resources would get lost if a peep was heading out to fetch them when you saved your game!
  • Entirely rewrote the code that decides to report "No power" or "No resources" on the building cards.  It now should be much more accurate, and it lists (one of) the resources it's waiting for!

1.0043 (26/05/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue with game generation to ensure that there is enough of each Fertility. Fixed for existing and new games (so you may see new fertilities on some of your islands on load)

1.0042 (26/05/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed some edge cases around demolition + bridges
  • Fixed an issue where peeps going up + down an elevator on the same tile (i.e. up -> across tile -> down) would ignore the second elevator and just float down to the ground
  • Cleaners are immune to pollution unhappiness
  • Hopefully made the tutorial around adding the Explorers Hut and Library to Island 2 immune to people doing weird stuff (e.g. demolishing them from Island 1 before/during the step. Should also now behave correctly if you save/load while on that step)

  • Rubbish/Ancient Tech isn't listed in Resource Details anymore (just like Tree Trunks aren't listed)
  • Filtering upgrade completely removes pollution from buildings
  • Fixed issue where hovering over ship in the Shipping Manifest to see what it's carrying wouldn't close the hover-panel if you closed the Shipping Manifest with Esc
  • Fixed the Space Elevator not filling up to maximum
  • Reversed how Protective Clothing is counted in Protective Elevators to make more sense
  • Automated Mines now use up power even when there aren't any workers
  • If a Sphinx wants to ask a riddle, and the island contains a Museum that would answer except it's workers are off resting, the Sphinx will wait. Note that this won't work for a Museum that has no workers
  • Fixed issue where you could create several Museums on an island, just with different upgrade levels

1.0040 (23/05/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • Because of a missed action in our source control, 1.0039 was missing a couple of things that had been fixed in 1.0035! This is corrected now

1.0023 (16/05/2020)[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue where when Peeps returned home from fetching resources, they would actually think they'd arrived at work!! This was probably causing all sorts of strange behaviour - in particular it's the cause of the reports of peeps floating over water that we've been seeing!
  • Added a new resource priority system!! Basically, any building will only be allowed to collect resources if there are enough available that all buildings of higher priority will be able to get the resources they want when they need them. There's more grades than just High/Medium/Low too, so, for example, Construction and Upgrade get bumped up above other buildings of the same priority, Accomodation is slightly lower (so peeps get food only after kitchens etc have had a chance) and Warehouses/Ports are lower still
  • Minotaur upgrades should now only happen if the player has settled an island that has the fertility for the things required to upgrade a Training Ground to combat it

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing building a Colony Spaceship if a Trade Spaceship was being built elsewhere
  • Most tutorial steps now have an image to show you what we mean
