[Preview Update] – Hotfix 253538 and a note about priority

Just a quick note regarding priority: in addition to implementing Duplicant Jobs this update, we also tried to tackle some of the thorny issues of Priority. We felt it was a natural fit that Jobs also affect priority, but we haven’t been happy with the side effects. In particular, it was hard to understand, and now that we've added the ability to retain mastery it didn’t make much sense anymore, so we are going to backburner reviewing priorities for a later update.

Please keep posting your feedback, we really appreciate it!
  • Priorities are now 1-9.
  • Jobs now affect priority within a single priority level (e.g. will prefer one prio 5 task over another prio 5 task) rather than across priority levels (6 is always higher than 5 no matter what)
  • Job perks are now permanent upon mastery of the job. The expectations of the highest mastered/assigned job determine the duplicant's expectations
  • Job attribute bonuses adjust to account for permanent perks
  • Jobs can only be changed at the Jobs Desk, construct one to unlock job management
  • A larger number of Duplicants can be assigned to a single job
  • Re-enabled attribute leveling, reduced max attribute base level to 20
  • Reintroduced strength attribute to determine carrying amount
  • Athletics is rolled separately from other attributes, and no jobs directly buff athletics anymore
  • Add experience gaining and attribute speed bonuses for more chore types
  • Steam turbine should properly stop if entombed or disabled
  • Dupes will now wait for materials to be delivered before digging out any building which affects locomotion including tiles, ladders, fire poles and the pitcher pump. They will however dig out ladders/fire poles without waiting for materials if the job is attached to an existing ladder/fire pole.
  • Liquids will now only sublimate to a max pressure.
  • Conveyor contents should no longer melt when loading a save file.
  • Multiple instances of a building in a room should now be porperly considered inside that room.
