Martin and Michi reunite at long last! Fabian gives us some insight into the upcoming political update and future updates.
Michi (molp) and Martin
A short update from simulogics HQ: This week I visited Martin for the first time in many months (yay vaccines!) to discuss technical topics primarily related to the upcoming mobile UI. Details on this some other time, though. Now back to the whiteboard!
A while ago we talked about "government programs" as a tool to better manage your population. Now with the upcoming changes to politics on the horizon, this concept required a few changes to make it fit the new process of initiating motions which are voted upon by the parliament, but we're still planning to introduce it to achieve the same things we discussed before, probably soon after the politics changes are live.
In other news, I've begun broadly looking into future topics, some of them influenced by last week's market-maker woes. Ways of introducing money into the game without resorting to the infinite NPC traders we have right now is one example of things that have long been on the list of issues to tackle. Now it's time to explore these alternatives in more depth!
I have a lot of irons in the fire right now but many of them are close to coming to fruition. We have almost finished the setup for our affiliate, which is great since they will feed us new players without us having to do anything apart from paying an established fee. I also have a few more influencers that are interested in working with us. Julian has also done some great work on Transmission 0, and I hope I can share that video with you guys soon! I am also wanting to look into contacting relevant podcasts that would be interested in a sponsor. Please write me on Discord or send me an email if you have any podcasts that you currently listen to that might be a good fit for PrUn. It doesn't have to be game-related; it could also be about space, economics, etc.
We are also doing another "Name a Planet" activity, so don't forget to vote and comment which planet needs a name the most!
