Version 0.8.6 with fixes and some new stuff

The main reason for the emergence of this version was correction of error reported by the user Maciekw7, concerning the lack of information about the awards won by the film in the game save. It turned out, however,, that in addition to this important correction I was able to put a few more, slightly smaller, but quite useful functions.

Here are the most important ones:

New year with new artists

With best wishes for the New Year I bring you quite big update of creators. Package version 26 adds 63 creators , mainly cinema stars from the 80s. This allows greater choice of real artists starting the game in this period (you will not have to rely solely on random generated persons without photos).

Details related to procedure of the update can be found at sub-page in the FAQ section.

Cult characters

Just about a new version of the game was released, and already thinking about new interesting features for the next releases. One of the new ideas, which appeared is so-called. cult characters.

What it is?

Often, the character played by a particular actor in a particular film is so characteristic, that when you create your movie (for example,. equivalent of this production) you think exactly about the role.

Hence the idea that the actor who plays this particular role have the picture clearly indicating on what character you have in mind. This means, that the actor in addition to standard 5 pictures assigned to his age will be able to have additional photos of such cult character.

Refreshing the parameters of creators

Some time ago I was contacted by Kacper (MrWeista), one of players of Movie Business, suggested, that the parameters of many artists seem to be out of date. I had to agree with him, because many of them were added 10 (and even more) years ago. And by this time a lot has changed both in the film world as well as in algorithms and rules of the game. What is important is not only Kacper noticed a problem, but also offered concrete help in the verification of these parameters.

Art market and selling of paintings

For a long time in the Movie Business 2 it is possible to purchase works of art in the form of paintings. Exactly ... purchase, nothing more can be done with them. The new version finally allow the full investment in this market.

Firstly, you will be able to sell paintings. Second, the price of images will vary depending on several factors. E.g: Events, the incidence of a particular type of image (with a particular style / specific author) at auctions, and the market reaction to the actions of art connoisseur Vico.

Earnings (or loss) will not be too big but investing in art allows protect the capital, primarily against random events (which operate on a percentage of cash owned by the player). Of course you can not forget about the trophies associated with this element of the game.

It's all in the version 0.8.5

New game mode

Another new feature planned for the next version of Movie Business is a new game mode. I admit, that I was not planned to add another mode because it seemed to me, that the actual number of them is sufficient and provides a wide range of gametypes . However after discussions with some players turned out,, that they have a slightly different point of view and would like to play sometimes in more casual way.

So here are main features of a new mode, which was tentatively named Quick game.

biznesfilmowy.tomiga.net or new addresses

The last serious failures prv.pl (server aliases to a Web page) have made, that access to services related to the design of the BF was heavily eroded. The whole situation irritated me enough, that I made the decision to buy back its own domain.

Because I have a couple of non-commercial projects too expensive would be the establishment of a separate domain for each of them. Therefore, I decided to group all of your "work" under one umbrella: tomiga.net

From today, so the official addresses of the parties related to the Film Business is:

Additional benefit for you, with new domains, It's no ads, that pop up when I used the aliases prv.pl.

Although the old redirects still remained (Today, probably even work) It's looking at their niedeterministyczność, I suggest to update your bookmarks and use the new, official addresses.

If You are interested in a slightly longer history tomiga.net I invite you to your private blog where I devoted this event full entry.

New page – Director's Cut

Because nazbierało already quite a lot of long entries for the Business of Film in my personal blog, I decided to put direct links to them, also on the official website of the BFA. I think, that every fan will find there a lot of interesting information about the game, and curiosities of the process of its formation. So here today to welcome a new section in the menu Game, entitled, Director's Cut. Feel free to check.
