    Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic

    Bought this earlier. I have been watching it for over a year now. In early access since 2019 and reviews are very positive and overwhelmingly positive.

    Build a soviet republic from an impoverished country into a rich industrial superpower in a city builder with intricate production chains and a fully simulated global economy. Manage the lives of your citizens from education to work and party loyalty to criminal activity.

    Looks interesting other than the fact I tend to suck at city building games. Can never make money and I bet it will takes hours of gameplay to reach the sort of transport network in those video clips. Looks as if everything is micromanaged, even down to having to build factories to produce resources for items like bus stops etc. Still, put it on my wishlist for now and will see how you get on Mike!

      I suck as well Vern, but the game includes a good few tutorials. Plus there is loads of helpful stuff on YT. Also a lot of mods for it on the Steam Workshop.

      I have played 8 of the tutes and it is head and shoulders above Cities Skylines 2, for in depth gameplay. But yes there is a lot of micro management to set things up. I will probably be dead, before i get to grips with everything involved .

      Purchased in the sale as well, saved 35% on the full price.

        Lots of thumbs-up comments which also mention the difficulty...such as this one:-

        It's super difficult (I am jumping straight into realistic), and I've failed to keep my population alive every single time, but every time I learn something new and get better, keeping them alive longer. Of course I'm bankrupt by then so have to restart but its worth it. Very good game for strategic minded players.

          Play on super easy here or sandbox, Bruce.

          Just like the trucksims, the business side of the game is of no interest buddy.

            Funny, isn't it, Mike? I cannot give a hoot about the business management aspects of any game.
            I did it as part of my job for 15+ years so it is definitely NOT an attraction for me!

              So, it's just like the real thing?...

                I can fully understand that Bruce, would be like going back to work for you. Definitely not fun buddy.
                I have never been a bread head, money does not drive me in the real world.

                  Refunded, too much micro management of everything in the game.

                    That's all I need to know Mike, thanks. I have a soft spot for Russian trains (politics be damned) but I want something like Transport Tycoon or RRT not something that seems to be a full time job!

                        Yes but strangely never spent much time on it.

                          Vern, i havent played it much lately. Because at one time i played it to death. There are plenty of UK themed mods for it.

                          But i am still looking for gaming nirvana .

                            Just revived TF2 on the laptop, thoroughly bored of playing around in TSC and Trainz route editors and even the wife suggested time I just played something for a bit at fun. So for now I've just been doing the first couple of missions - Carson City then Java which are effectively tutorials to get back in the feel of the game. However you are right, there are so many third party maps and rolling stock assets on the Workshop, could keep going for months. Even a few Aussie maps (for Bruce!) and some Australian locos and rolling stock too.

                              I think I have this game somewhere...maybe on a laptop. I might check out the Aussie additions....any particular URLs to visit, Vern, or just look at Steam Workshop?
