Open Beta Update 1.4.3.9128 – Repairs Part 2 & Re-Worked Workers

Open Beta of the upcoming Update is here!
Try out Repairs Part 2 and Reworked Workers before the release!

What’s new?

Repairs Part 2. We have improved one of the well-acclaimed features: Failures and Repairs. From now on, you’ll need to keep an eye not only on the durability of Vehicles but also your Washplant. Who said that the life of a chief mechanic is easy?
Reworked Workers. If the size of your gold mining operation becomes too great to handle, then maybe it’s time to expand your business and hire some workers? Now that they have been completely reworked, you can take advantage of their unique specializations and focus on the performance of particular machines.

IMPORTANT

Open Beta branch is a voluntary option and it may not reflect the quality and content of actual Update 1.4.3.
Save files from Open Beta version won’t be transferred to a live build.
Repairs can be enabled/disabled in game’s Settings.
