LOGistICAL: Update #784c

  • Ghosted a larger bitmap image behind the screen when dragging

Town Score and the High Score Data

A modification to put a "cap" on the amount of points a business could receive was introduced a while ago in L2.

This process basically set a static value of the "truck tonnage" that was delivering to businesses, so you could do it with a large truck or a small truck and it didn't alter the final score for that business.
I think doing businesses with the smallest trucks available that could take days to weeks was just not good for anyone's health. I know. I have done it myself (Xmas 2017).

This "cap" for businesses actually introduced a problem as it also mistakenly applied to the actual towns that use consumption.
This latest for a short while until I noticed and corrected with a build update one day after the release of France.



Now it is time to correct this mistake.

While France is still active with lots of players that haven't completed it yet, this current build has a process that will find missing high score values and repla…

LOGistICAL by sacada

Want to try a huge puzzle and strategy game? It will take you months to get anywhere near completing.
For the casual or intense gamer. You pick your own pace.
There are lots of easy sections scattered all throughout the game so you don't have to sit frustrated trying to get to the next section.

So you have a transport company which you build up to deliver goods.
Each town across the map needs certain goods. Some easy, some hard and lots in between.

Easy enough... except the towns consume your goods once you have delivered them. You need to keep ahead of those consumers to reach the target for each town.
Some towns want lots of things.

The 100+ industry types pump out the goods you need if you keep them supplied with input goods (eg. mung beans and sorghum to the piggery makes pigs and poop (fertilizer)).

Upgrade these industries to make them produce more and faster.
Get rich and buy your own industries and stick them where you want them... according to regional and environmental restrictions :(

Lots of roads are pretty bad, but if you deliver stuff the road builders they will fix it.

You can use and build stores too, so you can dump a bunch of goods there so the big trucks that won't fit in the towns can move them.

If you don't know where to start, there are a bunch of contracts that you can do. You get bonuses from them as well.

The game is actually based on a real map. All the towns exist, populations reflect and the industries are based on actual or historical data.

The whole game is open plan so you can explore and do whatever towns in whatever order you would like, including many simultaneously. Probably not a good idea to stray too far from the start to begin with.

If I haven't already mentioned, there are trucks to buy, roads to get fixed (including bridges and ferries), industries to upgrade, industries to build and cargo-stores to create.

There are many contracts to fulfil, achievements to earn and strategies that you can apply.

The game is very large with over 1000 towns to solve on the first map. Not sure if anyone will ever solve all of them, but I have been trying hard, doing the most complex ones to make sure they can be done.
There are 100s of industries already built and over 100 cargo types to deliver.
Your saved game is cloud stored, so you can play easily on different computers.

Do a few different towns/suburbs to get the jist of it and then you can relax and enjoy.
