We've updated Home Tycoon, and it's a big one. Included in today's update:

  • Workers now regenerate even when you're offline!
  • E3 Head Start Hard Hat owners will receieve a special bonus phone call from a new character
  • Holistic Campus building now available under Build > Commercial > TransUtopia
  • Start & Finish racing tiles now properly rewarded from the Life in the Fast Lane expansion pack
  • Racing Helmet & Racing Gloves now properly rewarded from the Stunt Pack
  • Various bug fixes

We've also permanently reduced the Worker regeneration time from 10 minutes to 5 minutes, and we're already hard at work on the next game update with plenty of content on the way. Let us know what you think!

 

Here's a shot of the new Holistic Campus building from TransUtopia, also available today in Planner Mode under Build > Commercial > TransUtopia:

I have the E3 Hard Hat, but I didn't receive a phone call.

 

Also, my city is still completely wiped/broken. It's in a permanent pre-tutorial state, but the tutorial cannot be accessed. The money, workers, citizens, and coin fields are all vacant. When I go to the Planner Mode, only Activity (Test Drive) is available . When I visit the Mayor's Desk, only Planner Mode, Visit Other Cities, and Go to Train Station are available.

 

I lost at least 40 hours of play time on my city. Can it be restored?

A few things I've noticed...

After collecting some revenue last night on a few of my commercial buildings I've come back to my city to find it hasn't regenerated at all...

Also, I bought the golden suitcase a few weeks ago and the countdown was 2 minutes for a worker. Now with your fix it is up to 3 minutes and 50 seconds.. is that right???

Also music seems to cut out after a few minutes.. the rest of the sound is available though.

On the bright side though, my workers regenerated! Smiley Very Happy Also, the special call was from Mr. Freebie who rewarded me 30 workers. Awesome!

Also another thing that is awesome: my own Home Tycoon cities are now recognized as spaces I've been to on my Navigator. This enables me to favorite each of my cities and go directly there from my favorites instead of having to travel to the train station in order to travel to my city from the portal there.

It's always been that way, BuBbLeRuM. Each city has a unique identification number.

thanks for the quick fixes, I was really thinking that this'd take 5 or 6 weeks!

 

my worker regeneration's working offline, and I got my start/finish race pieces
