restart game after update Empty restart game after update

on Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:14 pm
This might be a dumb question, but I am unable to find any answers in the forum yet. Do I need to start a new game every time after I install the latest patch? Thanks!

No you don't have too. Most things should work. There are some exceptions :
- If you changed the tweakables.xml you should check if everything is still like you want it.
- If there are changes in the insurance demands and things that unlock upon those demands AND you want to play with those new demands, you should start a new game.

The next update seems to be a large one with a lot of improvements. There is little know if that update demands a fresh start. I would recommend not to start over this time, if you want to start over wait for the big update (you might be forced to do so).

Hi, thanks for answering! Yes, we always aim for everything to stay compatible across patches, in case this changes in the future we'll of course mention it in the release notes, probably in bold and in caps - but I'm not expecting this to happen, even with future DLCs you should be able to just continue your game, maybe start a new one to have access to the extra content.

Modded tweakables.xml will be probably overwritten during updates (we're adding a new value there from time to time), so yes, definitely worth checking/recreating your changes.

When you mention the next update do you mean patch 14?
