Turmoil version 3.0 update 1.03 (Oct 12, 2021) is now available to download on PC (Steam). According to the official Turmoil 3.0 patch notes, the latest update added new features and changes Apart from this, today’s Turmoil 3.0 patch also includes various bug fixes.
This version is incompatible with saved games. Please read the paragraph “Your Campaign in progress” for instructions on how to continue your old campaign.
Read more details below.
You can now view the full Weekly Challenge leaderboard in the game instead of on the Steam Community. This includes a history of past challenges. The history includes any Weeklies played in the new version.
You can click a player’s name in the leaderboard to view their past achievements. This player profile will get extended later on when more online features are added.
Those with a keen eye will notice the camera icons next to each score. That leads us to the next highlight…
You can now watch replays of all Weekly Challenge submissions. Learn some new strategies from those pesky top 5 players and claim your own spot in the leaderboard! Or go back a few weeks and laugh at your friends missing that one oil well by a few pixels. Replays will be available for all Weekly Challenges played from this week onward.
You can watch a replay by pressing the camera icon next to the score in the leaderboard.
Up till today, there was not really a way to prevent players from submitting invalid Challenge scores. This has changed! Scores will be automatically validated using their replays and removed if they fail the check. And no, the game will not ship with any anti-cheat software. Your Challenge submissions are checked 100% on the game server.
One of the side-effects of adding replays to the game is that we can save your progress as a partial replay. This means you can now exit a level in progress and continue where you left off. It works for both campaign levels and single game levels! Simply close the game, go have that dinner, and come back to your level like you were never gone.
Wider aspect radios are now supported up to 21:9.
As you can see in the screenshots above, the in-game interface has been overhauled with an updated color scheme.
There have always been a few upgrades that were confusing to use or difficult to explain in the short description shown in the town stores. Once again, we used the replay system to show a short video next to most of the upgrades, right in the town store. Some of the Mayor’s Tips are also animated now. There were animated tutorials in the game already, but they were few and far between with a jarring 5 FPS.
There is now a separate calendar menu where you can easily view the remaining duration of the level. You can access it by pressing the calendar.
The loan menu can still be found by pressing the money counter at the top of the screen.
You can find 3 new languages in the settings menu:
As a final touch, the Town now shows pawns floating in the air whenever there is a new upgrade available or when you still have to do a land or stock auction. New upgrades are also indicated in the store with a little orange exclamation mark so you can’t miss them!
Of course we’re showing some love for all operating systems out there.
The 3.0 version is not backwards compatible with old campaign saves. Not to worry though, you can still access the old version of Turmoil through the Steam game properties panel. Simply right-click the game in Steam, go to BETAS, and select “old_campaign_compatible”. Don’t forget to disable the beta after finishing your campaign! You won’t get any of the shiny new features until you disable the beta again.
If you don’t mind starting a new campaign you can simply keep playing the latest update.
Your overall progress is automatically transferred to the new version. This means that you will still have the expert modes and the areas in the “Single Game” gamemode unlocked.
The old method of modding the player portraits and dialog is no longer supported. You can switch to the “old_campaign_compatible” beta if you want to keep playing with your mods.
That’s all for now, thanks for sticking with us! Enjoy, and make sure to press Follow on the Community Hub or Steam store page if you want to stay up to date with the latest releases. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments as well.
