So let me just start off by saying I really, thoroughly enjoyed my playthroughs of GDT. However, like a lot of people here I found myself looking for mods to extend my enjoyment with the game. I then ran into the Wiki as well as the success guide/review algorithm to learn more about the game and how to make successful games - http://gamedevtycoon.wikia.com/wiki/Success_Guide
This text in particular really bothered me in regards to the review algorithm:
"This means that you compete only against your own “Top Score” (or a value of 20, until you make a Top Score). Your first Top Score is established when you release a game which has a Review Score of 9+ (a bit more complicated than that actually, but let’s ignore that for a moment). When you release a 9+ game, your Game Score of that game is assigned as a new Top Score.
Therefore, in order to get a good Review Score, you need to improve over your best previous Game Score.An optimal strategy would therefore be to increase your Game Score by ~11% with each release, and thus get near-perfect review scores every time. However, increasing your Game Score by more than 20% is harmful for the future, because it is effectively wasting an opportunity for getting good reviews."
So I guess my question is - is anyone working on a mod that has a better system for calculating the review score? I find that I literally cannot play my old saves anymore (in Y30 or 40 or whatever) knowing that my game scores are now toast after scoring a perfect 10 game.
Thoughts? Maybe I’m way off base here? Someone lead me back to the light
Or, is anyone working on a mod with a new review algorithm?
