Update v1.08 Sandbox Mode (...and bug fixes+more!)
Hi everyone,

We have been working on Sandbox mode, and we are really excited to share the first version! We wanted to get it out to you as soon as we could, and we will continue to update and improve it. So please us know of any feedback that you have :) You can now also choose if rooms are for diagnosis or treatment, and a few other bits and bobs (see below for details!)

You can read a bit more about sandbox mode in Lauran's blog post here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/535930/discussions/0/1735468693696177534/

  • Sandbox: Freeplay will unlock after getting 1 star in Flottering. If you've already got 1 star in Flottering then load your career and Sandbox will become available. You can then access it from the main menu.
  • Ability to specify diagnosis or treatment for rooms that can handle both (Ward, Psychiatry and DNA). To do this select the room, and on the room UI you will now see 'Diagnosis' and 'Treatment' buttons. These allow you to toggle the options.
  • Added visual effect for projector in Training Room
  • All staff and any patients who are leaving the hospital are not initially infected by Epidemics
  • Fixed issue with staff resigning after already having been fired
  • Fix issue where key bindings were not always being saved
  • Various bug fixes and optimisations

**Updated to remove Halloween theme**

Let us know in the comments below if you have any questions or problems, and we will get back to you.

Thanks,
Jo

You and the development crew are the absolute best! I've paid $60 for AAA games that haven't had post-release support as good as this. I can feel that you guys are putting your heart and soul into the game, and it really shows. So, kudos(h) to you and everyone at Two Point Studios!

I just have one last request to make.... Two Point Park! I'll be there day one paying full price.
Yes! The ability to make a room diag or treatment only!!!

Thank you!

My DNA clinic patients thank you!

(The Ward though is running just fine as a dual purpose room)

You can use it as you like. Tha's the point :) The ability to choose :) ★★★★★

What are the optimizations about? Anything related to janitors prioritizing work, or doctors/nurses not going to empty rooms when there are queues in other similar rooms?

Why not fix some of the basic game mechanics first?

I wasn't sure about sandbox mode but it seems legit :) Just wondering if objectives will be added, continously? Maybe they give you money or prestige if you like.

Otherwise, really dig the "Ability to specify diagnosis or treatment for rooms that can handle both (Ward, Psychiatry and DNA). To do this select the room, and on the room UI you will now see 'Diagnosis' and 'Treatment' buttons" feature!

Keep up the good work!

The update is awesome.
I think so far the devs addressed more than 90% of the requests posted on this forum. (denuvo, sandbox, queues behavior, treatment/diagnose room, customization, epidemics...)

that is really useful for Wards, when you are beginning you hospital, have two other diagnoses empty and a small ward full, with queue of people for treatment and diagnose. Other rooms you can just close em open again and diagnose patients will be placed on other rooms.
On the Ward you can't do that, all patients inside will leave.
Now you can just temporally disable diagnose in the Ward.
Same thing for Psychiatry, but without the hassle of closing and opening the rooms.

You can also have a ward for diagnose next to GPs and another further away just for treatment.

Doesn't sandbox mode have any "unlimited" (read very very large) hospital area with custom-made building layouts?

Can we assign staff to work in a diagnosis only or treatment only DNA lab?

For the ward and psychiatry it doesn’t make a difference because these staff abilities go up to level 5 but the genetics ability doesn’t so you would want to either train genetics plus level 4 diagnosis or genetics plus level 4 treatment and then assign them to the appropriate room.

Alternatively it would be better if you could just train up to level 5 genetics which boosts both treatment and diagnosis just like the psychiatry skill.

They probably didn't do it because only rooms with no machinery that can be upgraded have specific skills that boost treat/diag for more than one level.

my gps arent diagnosing at all after patch. Patients get stuck in the room and there becomes a backlog of patients. I tried to send the patient home but nothing happens. patients werent going to any other diagnosis room either , not sure what to do :\

Yes, but it makes the feature not as useful as it should be. :(
It's still nice for other rooms and can help with diagnosis queues but people asked for this feature mostly because of DNA Lab.

Maybe try editing the room to "bump" the patient out ?

After applying Diagnosis/Treatment to my Psychiatry rooms in Mitton University now all my staff and patients in the entire hospital are stuck, they are playing whatever animation they were but are frozen in place
