Hey, so i accepted the minister's letter and set up a schedule hired teachers and put desks. but students won't come. How can I fix this? and i put chairs

Hi!

First choose at least one student from minister's letter. Your students will come next morning. Then create room (Class room) and put desks and attach chairs to it. Finally set lesson for proper class and room in Director's desk.

Where is my collections?

Click on the arrow next to your account name and go to library.

Hi, somehow this board stuck in my screen. I went to the build menu click on other board, but this one still not disappear.

I waited until the next day and it still there.

The only solution so far is to quit the game and open it again. I hope that you can fix this issue. In general, it is a nice game though.

Thank you! It will be fixed in the next update.

i cannot find a way to set up schedule plzz help!

Go to build mode(press B) and build Director desk. Then go back to first person mode and click on lesson plan on that desk.

also the students dont sit in the scheduled classes is it bug or i'm wrong?

It may be a bug(game is still Pre-Alpha) but I can't reproduce it. Make sure you set lessons for proper class(look at left top corner of lesson plan) and for proper hours, check that they have desks with chairs. Please let us know if it works or not.

yes i did i also hired teachers regarding this issue but it dose'nt work

Interesting, if you have some free time could you please send us your game save data on our email?

Hello! After I initially built the school I got the message from the minister but I think I told him I didn't want any students. It's been over a week in game. Any idea if he'll message me again or do I have to rebuild?

Hi!

Currently you can take students at the start of school year, so you can wait for next year(16 weeks) oraz just start a new game.

I'm having trouble with mouse movement as in it doesn't work. In full screen and in windowed my mouse moves behind the game not in it. I can move my mouse to my second monitor freely. I can't turn, or click on the sleep button to save the game. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I even plugged in a controller and still couldn't turn the character or sleep/save the game. Please help.

Thank you for letting us know! Bug has been spotted and will be fixed in the next update.

I partially want to ask the same as what the guy is asking below, how do I get the government income, I've made a students rest room, staff restroom, workers restroom, several bathrooms and of course classrooms, having a full schedule. I assume it's once monthly but wanted to check.

Secondly, how do I get more students, (if at all possible and/or sort them into different classes.)

Many thanks, you've done a great job on this far, I've really been enjoying it!

So, as we wrote below you receives money from government after 4 weeks. You can get more students after every year (4 seasons / 16 weeks). We really appreciate that you like our game :)

Ah, that's wonderfully helpful! Thank you very much for the response. I can't wait till I can seperate the history and biology classroom, haha. 

I have a question - I built my school, set a schedule, have students and teachers, but my income is still only from my vending machines. Am I missing something? Thank! It's a really good, and unique game otherwise.

Hi!

Currently beside earnings from vending machines you can get some money from the government. They gives you some after each season (4 weeks) for each student. We are really happy that you liked our game. In few days will deploy an update, so stay tuned :)

how to you remove blocks.

Hi!

On the bottom right corner you have a bomb icon. Just click it, and after that you will be in destroy mode so you can destroy whatever you want.

Are comments here the only way to keep you updated with feedback in order to contribute to development, or is there a way to do that automatically?

Hi!

Currently comments are the only way to communicate with us, but we are thinking about more options.

It's so slow to build.Haven't I waited enough?

It takes only few seconds to build an object. If your builders are not going to build an object make sure that they can go to that object(nothing is blocking them).

Thanks.

How do I run this game..... I need help and instructions please

(1 edit)

First you have to download and unpack downloaded file. Then just run the game by double clicking on School Simulator.exe

Enjoy :)

what do you mean exactly? Sorry this is my first time downloading something

First you have to press 'Download' button on the game site. Then press right mouse button on the downloaded file and press extract. After that find a folder named the same as file that you just downloaded so it will be something like 'School Simulator Pre-Alpha 0.4' (it depends on the version that you downloaded), open it and find file 'School Simulator'. Open it by double clicking and press play. I hope that it will help you :)

When are you going to plan a Sandbox Mode?

Also, I'm a little creep out about their faces, I don't know why but there's something about it that scares me hahahahaha Nice game Though

Hi!

What do mean by sandbox mode?

Sandbox mode is cheat Mode, INfinate cash, etc.

Hi!

Currently we do not have such plans, but it may change in the future.

Hey, I built a classroom, But there aren't any students in it, Even though I did send that list of students to the minister! 

Hi!

Students will appear next day since you sent list to the minister. Next you have to place Director desk, where you can setup lesson plan for each class.

Ok Thanks! By the way, great game and keep it up!👌👌

How do you save game? and i have a worker in my area but shes not working. how do i fix that?

This game is currently on early developement state, so it can only be better.

Delete button should work in the next few weeks. We have it currently in our plans.

The next update should be add parking lot for the teachers

Yes, except rooms for NPCs.
