i think thats why im easily bored by this. its well done and complex which i love but then i lose motivation to continue or look after my worker town. Also while i dont like forced grids, id love to be able to make things straight/parallel :) but maybe there is a trick for that.

New version 0.8.4.17
Helicopters and undergrounds

The new update of Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic introduces helicopters that work with construction offices, hospitals and fire stations. Operate the helicopters to help extinguish fires even without workers, serve as transportation at hospitals, and assist with construction at unreachable construction sites.

In addition, the new upgrade now supports underground infrastructure using a special mode that allows you see what happens underground.

Another update that was added was the rain and the dynamic sun when starting a new game or changing the settings for an existing game. This offers a different ambiance allowing you to see Your Republics in a different light and weather.

Strap Yourselves In
I tried this for a few hours and I really liked the simulation and the setting, but the UI is just incredibly fucking painful. It's like Transport Tycoon with a million windows popping up, each with some little tiny button you've got to find on it in order to get anything done. Not to mention how much of a pain in the ass it is to lay out your power lines, pipelines, etc. I hope the developer gets around to improving that side of it because it's just not worth wasting my time on in its current state.

Or maybe this is actually a genius move. It's the kind of UI that I'd expect from a game made by communists who don't care if customers actually like their product, so maybe it was done intentionally to tie in with that theme.

Authentic experience of Soviet planners having to work with shoddy materials, comrade!

I'm also few hours in and like it a lot so far. The scale is fantastic, the things you can build... So complicated combination of tycoon and city-planner. Shame that the game looks far from being completed yet. UI is intimidating, sure, but that's the price for the ability to allocate every piece by hand, without area markers and stuff. I disagree that the game looks shitty, rather it looks... very soviet, which is the point. Also, dedication to replicating all the vehicles is fucking insane.

These guys are dedicated. The game is getting really complex.

Update from October (because the Christmas update is just cosmetic):



Content Update #8 features:
  • Build monuments to increase the loyalty of your citizens.
  • Use secret police to install spy equipment and find out how loyal your citizens really are!
  • Utilize information gathered by the secret police to ensure citizens do not use their positions to affect other citizen’s loyalty.
  • New construction menu with customizable screen positions.
  • Quick info tab to access citizen information and your republic’s economy.
  • New complex rail signals mechanic update (no requirement to place the chain signals)
  • Optimized traffic flow added for parking lots and other buildings.
  • Orphanage added - Look after your republic’s children should the worst happen to their parents.

DMCA is the secret weapon of the butthurt.

It's the perfect weapon because service providers (Steam, Youtube, etc) will just comply with most requests, no matter how silly on the surface. A popular FPS streamer I used to watch had his account disabled when a rival (and far less popular streamer) claimed he had copyrighted the song 'We wish you a merry Christmas', that the popular streamer had sung (badly) while shooting dudes in a Christmas video.

It took a while and probably lawyer intervention before the streamer was able to get back into his account.

Edit: From the Workers & Soviets Steam announcement:

He was successful because those reports are handled by BOTs, not humans. We will issue our reactions, and hopefully we will get answers soon from human employees of YouTube and Wix, who can evaluate his actual claims and agree that this is nonsense.

A commie-simulator game taken down by political maneuvering of sorts and backstabbing. A bit too realistic, I say.

Dear Community and Players,

We are pleased to announce that our game is now back in the store!

We thank you for your patience, support and understanding as we navigated this tricky situation.

We want to apologize to those who were looking to purchase the game and were unable to. We realize that we underestimated the situation, and it quickly escalated to a point that posed a threat to our game. We greatly wish that this had not been the case.

But we are now back on track and you can fully enjoy the game! We are excited to get back fully to the development and put this matter behind us.

Are there gulags?

You cannot make a game like this and not have gulags.
you can set up prisions and send them to do forced work in mines etc, if you build orphanages you get a good stream of anti-citizens to send to the prisions
