I'm looking into getting the next version out this month for everybody.
How did you download the game? With your browser or the Itch.io App?
If you downloaded via browser, you need to unzip your files and run the ShopSim.exe file
The itch.io app should be self explanatory. Once you download it, you just need to press play.
Hopefully that helps.
Assuming I understood, 0.1.0 will come out when its ready.
For context, there are still a lot of bugs that are there and features that need polish. Unfortunately, I don't have people working on the game for 8 hours everyday. Hopefully one day! :) I do have my awesome volunteers who can only dedicate a few hours per week. The rest of the work falls on me.
You'll need to upgrade you smithing hammer by creating a new one with better materials and equip it by pressing "E". Customers will ask for weapons of the same material as your hammer and lower.
Sorry to give you a vague answer but the best answer I have for you is, when it's ready.
Although, I will add, it should be considerably soon. We are trying to polish, kill bugs, and add features and unfortunately, all of those combined takes some time.
I am looking at reworking some things and having a better mining experience.
I'm not sure if late night customer requests would make sense but I appreciate the suggestion anyways.
Thank you fro your ideas.
I do plan on adding armor, pets and mounts. Same for unique handles and guards. Currently, in the Patron version of the game, there is some customization options for placements of workstations, next I am working on players being able to craft shelves, tables, counters, etc.. Then finally I hope to allow players to build a new shop from scratch.
I really like your idea of lantern fuel. I'll look into that one.
Thank you for your contribution. We are planning on adding an assistant eventually. I actually want to do it now but that would just push the update to the public even further, so it will be in another update.
The game, as you are aware, isn't aiming for realism.
My philosophy is, why escape reality to video games when only to live in the same reality.. again. Where do you escape to next? So, I do want to have some elements of "realism" but not too much. Very little as possible. This is more about having fun in the end.
Thank you again.
You can rotate objects, which usually helps with getting objects unstuck. If you hold down your [ Alt ] button, while holding the object, you should be able to rotate the object, this can help glitch the shield out of the table. Just keep trying until it works.
Let me know if that helps.
Not to sound like a broken record. I understand things take time but I do have a payout that has been pending for 35 days. I did submit a ticket and never heard anything. Would be great if you can look into it and get me an approximation on when this will be completed.
It would seem that New Patrons who made a pledge but have not been charged for the month have access to downloads.
Unfortunately, I leave my link in my blog posts and any of the Patrons can download the game and cancel their pledge right after. Is there a way for Itch to check if they actually were charged?
What are your computer specs and are you opening 32bit or 64 bit version of the game?
Unfortunately, looking up the problem doesn't yield any fixes. It would seem its a problem with the engine and effects random computers. Epic hasn't released a fix for yet from what I can tell. I'll keep you posted if anything changes.
I am sorry for the inconvenience.
Hey Black Jackal,
For the next update, we've made some adjustments to the wait times for customers. Also, the other shop will be unlocked for purchase and will be better for players that want to stock up on larger number of items. Unfortunately, at the moment, I can only ask for your patience.
At the moment, Intelligence only affects the stats on weapon heads. Unfortunately, this feature isn't fully implemented so don't put any points into it. It will be removed until the feature is complete.
