May Day version trailer April 25

Hello everyone, let me start with good news. A very talented UI lady has joined us, and we have grown a lot. We have prepared a May Day version for everyone, with slightly more updated content. Because there is a decoration inside that is unique to this version. So let me give you a preview and wish everyone a happy May Day. The version will be updated before May Day. The updated content is as follows——
1. Add two new network administrators.

2. Zheng Haonan and Qu Xiuhua are available in challenge and sandbox mode.

3. May Day special event decoration and achievements. (Only available in the May Day version)

4. Add letter decoration for A-Z.

5. Notification can be stacked to avoid missing personnel recruitment.
6. Add a voice prompt control panel. Some players have reported that there are too many voice calls in the later stage, which is a bit annoying.
7. In story mode, add new targets to complete both the plot and objectives simultaneously, avoiding incomplete storyline experience.
8. Fix numerical errors in movie shooting.
9. Fixed a bug where the cinema had insufficient foot traffic in challenge mode.
10. Remove unreasonable employee tasks.
11. Add a rule that noisy behavior will only be triggered when customer satisfaction is below 60.
12. Add a skip button for appointment animations.
Some players have provided feedback that we are already making modifications, but it is estimated that we may not be able to finalize it before the holiday. We will have plenty of time during the May Day holiday, so let's try to make changes and update later.


[Update content of the May Day post plan]

1. Add the function of batch replacement of computers.
2. Change the original "sandbox mode" to "company operation" and add a "sandbox mode" with unlimited money.
3. Add "technology level" selection in the new sandbox mode and prominently display it in the "company operation" mode. Avoid always starting with the lowest technology computers.
4. Add a new computer storage warehouse to avoid the need to sell computers when changing tables.
5. Optimize AI pathfinding function. (At present, there is a high volume of passengers, but they are not satisfied with their seats. After investigation, there is also a problem with finding the way.)
6. Optimize AI behavior to improve automatic dissuasion and watering efficiency.
