No lit version for the 1 and 2 meters panels in 16:9 format? (currently only available as TV panels)

Uhh, I love the new billboard options! Small is always needed, thank you very much for that!

Jay, we unfortunately still have an issue with climbing frames. It is an ongoing bug now ever since the Australia pack.

Thread

It also transfered over to calculating water. Sometimes, when platforms are used in water, the deep water isn't calculated correctly and says it's 0 m. Deleting or moving the platform slightly and then moving it back / hitting undo fixes the problem every time, but it can randomly accure again after entering the zoo anew. It rarely effects all habitats, but random ones. I already send in my save files twice in the past, as per request. What else can we do to help the Devs fix this bug? It's been quite a while now that we didn't hear anything about if this is been worked on or if additional info is needed.

Hey,

thanks for your help in the past with the issue! As you've stated yourself, the bug is quite intermittent in its reproduction. As such, the team is currently still investigating the core issue alongside other high-priority issues and work.

Thanks!
 
Four new billboard assets were added for more customisability in your zoos:
  • Screen Panel 1m x 1m (+ a Lit version)
  • Screen Panel 2m x 2m (+ a Lit version)
I assume the 1m x 1m Panels will be perfect for the Creation of own Signs that tell the Guests to be quiet and don't feed the Animals. Thanks a lot for them.


Fixed a small number of geometry issues in the following scenario reward statues:
  • Bornean Orangutan
  • Giant Panda
  • Indian Rhinoceros
  • Japanese Macaque
  • Lion
  • Siberian Tiger
What exactly does this mean?

Okay, as long as it's still on the Devs radar, I'm fine. :) Just wasn't sure about that.
 
Thank you so much for bug fixes and specially the new billboard options! I would like to ask one thing: What is the reason for the decision not to include small sized screen panels with 16:9 proportions? We already have the small TV screen, but an unlit screen version would be very useful in many zoos! 😃
 
I know I am bringing this up once again, but after South America pack release, we got info that the natural mound enrichment (that is used by anteaters) would be made available for aardvarks too. That was almost a year ago, but never heard of that once again. Is this still something that we will see eventually?

Every Screen should have a unlit Version. It would also be nice (if it wasn't already fixed and just forgotten to write it here) if the Devs would look into that Problem where Pictures and Videos on the Custom Billboards are shown noticeably brighter than they actually are

I could be wrong but I think you'd still need the actual signs (which work even if you hide / bury them) as guests need something to respond to.
 
With the focus on flexicolour, can we please have a way of organizing our used colors? I have to collect them in a seperate file.

Yeah, I have this marked down for a TLC update in which they need to address some physical issues with a few animals as well as some behavioral issues. It's a list that's going to be similar to my other lists but will be specific to those issues. I'll probably wait until the release of the third dlc before I release it.
