More breakable parts = more challenges on your way to becoming the richest miner in Alaska. The threat is even more real, as from now on it is possible to see a “Game Over” screen, when you fail to pay your debts.

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.
