CorsixTH - Beta 5

Beta 5 of CorsixTH has been released on December 24th, 2010, as our annual Christmas present to Theme Hospital fans. Due to the out-of-schedule release of beta 4 at SVN revision 1000, there are not an excess of flashy new features, but beta 5 does contain a number of bug fixes and improvements over beta 4.

Amongst other fixes, a bug was fixed that caused an error when building the operating theatre in certain cases, along with one which caused bone-idle patients. Many of you will be pleased to know that cheats were added to the game, activated in the same way as the original game.

Finally, to address the boredom which comes from seeing the same levels over and over again, we've thrown in a brand new custom map called Avatar with a unique challenge, and if that isn't enough, additional custom maps can be found in our community forums.

You guys are so awesome, thank you :D

About Avatar: That was an easy one, I won with just a receptionist and a GP's. If you play it seriously it's really fun, because you hardly lose any money. But I don't know how to kill patients, so I had a solid income of $10.000 per year.
