Director's cut: Summary of news in the 2021 edition

The 2021 Edition is just around the corner. According to tradition, I invite you to a detailed summary of the novelties that will be included in it. Find the text in two versions

Even if you have followed carefully all the texts about the 2021 Edition on the official site it is worth reading this text because there are a few updates and things that I have not mentioned yet.

The link to the post as usual will be added to the Director’s cut.

I invite you to read.

Director's cut: Movie Business in numbers

From the cycle Director’s cut today a post on my personal blog about the analysis of statistical data of players' movies. This is an extended version of the post that appeared on the Movie Business website, containing statistics about the players' films from the 2020 Edition. Extended, because it also contains information about the players themselves, specifically about the countries and cities they come from. If you have not read the previous post or you are interested in where other players come from, please visit Tomiga Blog for full article (English speakers will need to change their language – option in the menu on the right).

Regarding the previous Poll: Should the game have its own playlist on Spotify.

It seems that the option of those of you who do not see such a need has prevailed. So this is not a priority for me but I generally do not completely throw this idea, because, a lot of people would be happy to listen to something in the background during the game in the MB. However, I am interested in the details of the last option of the survey, that is, from people who would have seen such a playlist but not on Spotify. Where would you put it then?

Let me know in the comments.

Screenwriter outsourcing

One of the proposals that has been scrolling among players for many years was the opportunity to hire an external screenwriter to create a script for you. In the next edition there will be such an option, although maybe in a slightly different form than some would like.

In the next version: Cult Characters and set update 65

After I informed you that in the next version you will be able to add own monsters, I have received signals that you would also like to be able to add cult characters directly from the game. It is true that here the functionality is not so critical (cult characters can be easily added from MovieStats) but after thinking about it, I found that in total why not give you such an option as well.

In the next version: New response types

In the next version, some quests, interviews and press conferences will be expanded with a new way of interacting. They will be open answers, that is, those where you yourself will have to / can type any text.

In the next version: Custom Monsters

One of the novelty that appeared in the 2020 Edition game were Monsters. For the record, the monsters allowed us to change the pictures of the actors in our film into pictures of monsters when the name of the hero sounded like a monster that we wanted to include in the film. That is, if the character played by X was called Dracula, instead of photo X there was an image of the most famous vampire.

Poll: Soundtrack to the game

Some players once asked me why there is no music in the game. The answer was pretty obvious as an indie game without a budget it was difficult to get enough music to use in the game. In addition, there would have to be a lot of it so that it would not get bored with players quickly during several hour-long sessions with the game. Another problem would be the variety of players' tastes. So in the end it was better to give it up completely.

Today, however, the possibilities are much greater.

It’s time for Cyberpunk – Set update

I have another set update for you today. It is so unusual that it has its own trailer…

This is it.

Yes, it adds to the set of creators characters from the iconic game CD Projekt RED Cyberpunk 2077.

In addition, some Asian artists from the Five Flavors Festival

You will find there 75 creators and 150 photos.

The update will take place after launching a new game with the default set of creators (details can be found here).

After this update, the official set will contain 4901 creators.

We have city to burn!

Wielkie dzięki.

Otrzymałem głosy że niektórzy mieli problem z wczytaniem dużych zapisów stanu gry. W tej wersji udało się nieco odchudzić zapis (o ok 10 MB). Dajcie znać jeżeli wciąż będziecie mieli problemy z odczytaniem zapisów stanów gry.

Have fun!

P.S A jeszcze w najbliższych dniach szykujcie się na nowy trailer 😉

Movie Business 2020 Update 5

Unfortunately, it was not possible to prevent errors in the last update. Hence the need for another version. It corrects two main problems. Not being able to create continuation other than the sequel (in some cases), and improving the game balance (unfortunately I underestimated some parameters and the game turned out to be too simple).

Podziękowania dla Jakub and Bartosz za pomoc w identyfikacji problemów.

Miłej zabawy i jeżeli zauważycie jakieś dalsze anomalie (czy to błędy czy np. fakt, że Waszy filmy mają podejrzanie duże zyski 😉 to proszę o kontakt.

What's new in the next update

Update 4 to 2020 Edition of Movie Business 2 is coming in great strides. So far, I have not written extensive text on such versions, which most often contained only bug fixes and minor improvements. This time, however, I made an exception, because the next update contains some new features about which I would like to write you a few words.

Like the last time, the text was published in two places:

I invite you to read and comment.

P.S Remember that you can find more details about the game in the Director’s cut

In the next version… Intensification of advertising

The next update is fast approaching time so for the first leaks what you will find in it. Among the ideas you have suggested to me, there is often the issue of trailers. Well, you would like to be able to create and release trailers for your movies. In general, I'm not a fan of too much micro management, which is why until now, not outright, trailers were hidden under the option of a marketing campaign. It was simply assumed that if a player during the campaign chose TV or TV Sat then such a trailer for the film will be created. One thing, on the other hand, in terms of advertising that was missing was the fact that just before the film's release, marketing efforts were invigorated. I decided to combine these two requirements and create what I called intensification of advertising
