Hello all,

We have just launched the September update for Resort Boss: Golf! As promised, the update introduces new staff members, a new resort rating system, new animals and more.

There's still plenty to come in October and November, so make sure to cast your eyes over the roadmap:



September Update Full Patch Notes

Improvements/Balances/Tweaks: (47)

• Magazine name is no longer randomly selected, which caused inconsistency when clicking on a message. Instead, it's tied to the last digit of the VIP's ID.
• Increased the speed of the player character.
• Increased the spacing of the queue spots
• Missions that have expired are now properly removed from the inbox.
• AI generation is now performed once, creating a database file that is shared in all the savegames. Created AI is located in a separate file.
