Detailer’s Patch #1 – Version 1.1.6f1

Hello everyone. Today’s update addresses several issues identified in patch 1.1.5f1, also known as Economy 2.0, and introduces some exciting new content on top of that. Our art team has been busy creating new service building variants and additional themed vehicles to offer you more choices. For detailed city builders, we’ve added an Age Selector to the Tree Placement Tool for finer control over tree placement, as well as a Surface Tool that lets you apply 11 different types of surfaces to your city. This is just part one of the “Detailer’s Patch,” as we aim to incorporate your feedback and enhance support for this play style. Stay tuned for more updates on our future plans.

We hope you enjoy the new content and bug fixes. We are grateful to everyone who reported issues or provided constructive feedback, as well as those who completed our survey. We are already evaluating how to refine game balancing based on your responses.

If you encounter any new issues after this patch, please report them here:

We wish you a fantastic July and look forward to resuming development in August.

Note: A new patch may cause compatibility issues with mods. If you face any problems, please disable mods and wait for updates from the modders. See this thread for more information.

Known Issues

The Small Post Office doesn’t receive incoming mail for city distribution.

Office companies recover from the 5/5 worker count gradually, provided they maintain profitability in the city.

Office companies may not leave when buildings are demolished. If your offices remain at 5/5 workers or continuously lose workers, they may be stuck. Use this workaround:

  • Increase office tax to 30%
  • Run the simulation until all office buildings are empty (grey) in the Profitability Info View or when there’s no tax income from offices (~one in-game month).
  • Restore the tax level to your preference.
  • New office companies will repopulate your city.
  • Note: Office demand may take time to return as buildings are refilled. This is normal.

Alternatively, retaining office demand while resolving the issue:

  • Remove all office zoning.
  • Run the simulation until you receive no office tax income.
  • Rezone offices where desired.
