Nice fixes. The 1500 pop limit is more than enough for me, but I can still see some people griping about it unless its done away with completely. Wink

Sooo what does "Tropicans now enjoy long walks on the beach" actually mean??

Not mentioned as those placeholder buildings were neither an official nor properly working part of the game.

Hey, Timo - thanks to you and the team for your hard work on this and in getting this update out so quick. It's greatly appreciated. Makes me want to play the campaign through a second time. You guys do great work and El Presidente is pleased. Well... you'd know if he wasn't! Smile

Thumbs up for this. So it was a bug after all Smile

- Goods required by certain buildings will no longer be transported to the docks
Oh I love you!

- Population limit raised to 1500 (can your machine handle it?)
- Road element limit increased (extra budget for fixing potholes)
Lol for these two. I love both comments XD

A nice long list of fixes Smile And people finally got their limits higher. I still do not get how this guy on here had screenshots with 1800+ population.

forgive my being complete computer illiterate, but should the game automatically update when I play, given that I'm online?

Boxed retail version update via Kalypso Launcher will be released in ~10 hours from now. Sorry for the delay.

No problem. I'm not sure if 7 minutes' delay warrants an apology Smile, but in any case thanks for the info!

Actually, I meant to apologize for the delay of the boxed retail update. There's only so much stuff you can get done on a single work day.

RE: Tropico 4 - Update 1.03 - Changelog
I bought Tropico 4 through Steam. When I launch the game and the log-in screen appears, in the bottom right-hand corner is "Tropico 4 Version 1.0"

Seeing how you have patched the game to 1.3 with this update, does that mean that Steam is not properly updating the game? (I signed off and on to try and prompt an update--no change.)

The only other explanation I can think of is that the dev did not change the version sig on the loading screen. Is there an easy in-game means of testing whether I am running the update (or a file location that will indicate a change has occurred)?

Thank you! Big Grin

Yeah, go to the options menu and check if you can set the hotkeys for the Bunker, Cement Factory, and/or the Plantation (as they were removed this patch). If you have them then your game didn't patch.

Pulling it now on my digital retail copy.

Last screenshot as a teaser from my unpatched version.

EDIT: I'm certain they'll have patched the infinite money glitches I abused in that save, but I just wanted to break the 3200 population barrier without the patch, to see how much further the patch gets me :3

So it was a glitch that gave you the ability to break the population limit. If i was you I would keep a copy the game folder somewhere on my pc with version 1.00 just to enjoy the ability to do that XD . But I do not really play in the sandbox much. 3200.. how much management would it need to keep em happy @.@

No the population has nothing to do with the glitch.

I was abusing infinite money to maintain that horde.

You need far too many clinics, hospitals, churches, cathedrals, etc.. It just hurts.

Also, the non-Steam digital/retail version, the launcher updates to 1.0.3 in the bottom corner Smile
