Title: Which features should be implemented asap?
Post by: KasperVld on November 15, 2010, 12:03:52 AM
Everyone must have some ideas on this, my personal wish is Staff Speed getting in :)

I'm sorry to say Cheat Codes, but I was never able to play Theme Hospital without the money cheat.   :-[  I don't insist on it going through the fax machine -- in fact, I'd rather it didn't.  But something that allows for sneaky funds increases would be good.

I'd say staff speed and correct salaries/correct type of staff per level

Multi-taskable options like disable salary raise,

Skip end of year leaderboard
Keep settings like speed
Auto try to resume from non fatal errors (by working out if it is a non fatal error)

And just general completeness like aliens and babies.

Btw, asap? If you want it quicker, it is open source and Lua is a really easy language, feel free try yourself. They have been very supportive of people trying.

ASAP:
- Correct speed of the doctors, and the possibility to make doctors better by building large rooms. (Like when a doctor works in a GP's Office that have objects and are larger than minimum size, they will get better...)

- A way to dump language strings that doesn't exist in the specific language-file, but exist in "original-strings.lua" and "english.lua":) This way I can get rid of "--to-do-strings" in norwegian.lua, and just use the string-dump feature to see what to translate next! (And just copy from the dump and paste in language file)

But most important - For me, the game isn't fun to play before the doctor-balancing-part is finished. Because that was my favourite part of the game - to train bad doctors, and make them superfast-working:)

I would like to see being able to pick an item up after placing it while building it.

eg.
I place a desk down in a GP room, but then I want to move the desk. ATM I have to reset the whole room and place everything down again.

Im accident prone like that

GUI Buttons for Game Speed control, and fixing the janitors (they always seem terrible).

Are we just talking features from the original game?  If not, something I'd really like to see is Central Heating -- or a Heat Cheat.  Something that keeps the inside temp good all year round (y'know, like thermostats do?) without having to plant radiators all over the place.  Shouldn't be that hard, right?  I mean for people who code in something other than SQL.   :-[

It be neat if the temp is based off the time of year....

Summer is warmer than winter...but I guess based on how quickly the months go by, it my not be worth to

The temperature system actually does take into account which part of the year it is...

If you want to add pregnancy there is a patch in issue 477 that will do that add that for you, you will have to had applied the ThemeHospital pregnancy patch first or at least know how to edit the SAM files though to make it work in the game.

As this by far wasn't the only request for cheats (many asked on facebook and other places), I implemented cheats today in r1067. Have fun :)

Except it's not working -- help?   :(

"It's not working" is not a really helpful problem report - try to follow this general recipe for problem reports so we can help you better: ;)
1) What exactly did you do, 2) What did you expect to happen, 3) What happened instead.

Without any information especially on 1), I can only guess:
- did you download and install a dev build of r1067 or newer? http://th.corsix.org/corsix-th-latest.html (http://th.corsix.org/corsix-th-latest.html) I implemented the cheats in that revision, they are NOT in beta 4. They will be in the next release, of course.
- what did you do to activate the cheats? There are two ways, 1) wait for a fax to appear. enter 24328 (not on your keyboard but the buttons on the fax machine) and the green button. OR 2) activate debug mode, select from the menu debug->cheats.
- after the above step, unlike original TH you do not activate a cheat by pressing some key combination, but a window appears where each cheat is represented as a button you can click on.


If all of these things don't help please check if there's an error message in the console / game log and create a bug report including the error.

Sorry 'bout that.  So I tried to reproduce the problem to report it, going via the fax route, and this time the cheat menu came up and everything worked!  I'd like to be able to do it through debug mode too but I don't know how to get in -- all the documentation I've read says lots about what can be done once you get there, but I haven't seen the part that says how.

But anyway, cheats are working -- thanks so much!

I'd like to see litter and vomit,
staff speed,
happy/unhappy triggers
and the correct visualisation of conterminated person, and person without backbone.
Actually these are features of the original game ...

My vote is for staff speed, and finally a fix for patients getting stuck randomly!

Come to think of it, I'd love to be able to pick up patients!   ;D  If that would skew regular gameplay too much, an "enable patient pickup" option in the lovely new Cheat Menu would be fine.

I once had a patient stuck in Research because I snatched the doctor about to autopsy him to drop into Surgery -- not a real problem, but a bit annoying.

Picking up patients was a feature in the original, too :)

Priority for me is fixing the frozen doctors and patients bugs, and the facility to read replacement sprites where available.
I am thinking we could first look if a replacement png file exists, if so use that, otherwise fall back to using the default one
from the original theme hospital game files.

Also, the audio.lua script enables dumping of the audio files using:

      --self:dumpSoundArchive[[E:\CPP\2K8\CorsixTH\DataRaw\Sound\]]

We could possibly have a similar dump facility at an appropriate code point for the sprite files:

  -- self:dumpSpriteArchive[[E:\CPP\2K8\CorsixTH\DataRaw\Sprites]]
