you need make this a mobile version plz that would be Soo cool. And you could put on mediafile or later you could put on Google play.

Hi!

We thought about mobile version, but School Simulator is to big to play fluently on Android/iOS.

I am really interested in the idea behind this game. But it needs some determination and dedication from the devs to turn this idea into reality.

There is not a lot of content, but I understand this is still in the 'Pre-Alpha' phase. The devs are probably working hard on the next release, so it hopefully should come out soon.

How do I save a game?

Hi!

Game saves automatically every morning.

I'm struggling to understand the classes and lessons. I don't know what many of these symbols mean, and it's hard to remember what teachers do best with what subjects.

Also, it'd be nice if build mode didn't actually affect the passing of time. It's really frustrating taking a week and a half trying to build my school while I'm being yelled at about not running the school that shouldn't even be open yet.

Hello,

I noticed your game on Itch.io and I really like the look of it. Is it possible to make a YouTube video out of your game? I'd like to show your game to others. 

Have a nice day!

^ . ^

Sure, go ahead!

Thank you!

@Kimmy what's your YouTube channel called? :)

Here's a link for it:

How do I fix builders not building things?

I trap mine in a room until they finish the room, then add the doorway to let them go on to the next room. :D

Can you make making the schedule easier because it's annoying as heck

Leo's School Math And Stuff: Chapter 1, Coming: 11.11.2019

hi :) ,  I clicked sth and I did not accept any students.. now my school has 0 students and i dont know how to accept new students :(

Hi!

You can take new students only at the beginning of each year. So you should wait for the next year or start a new game.

thank you, I started again and now my school has 45 students and everything is working fine.. I have one question however.. what should I do to build second level? I put the stairs etc but the builders are not going upstairs to build the floor

I don't know how your school looks like, but remember to have some space above stairs. Maybe ceiling is just to close to stairs.

How do i save my game?

(+1)

Hi!

Game saves automatically every morning.

I took this advice, but I had to start a new game. I spent 3 hours on my school and the load thing won’t work. The only thing I can press is tutorial and new game.

There should be a 1aHomeroom, a 1b Homeroom, a Biology, and a Physics, but theres none of those!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi!

I can't reproduce that bug. Could you please send us your game save data? You can remove a class by right clicking at one of its floor -> "Remove Class"

Also sorry for very late answer.

how do i delete a class zone? i cant make my lesson plan because when i go into classes it says there are only some class zones. Like, for example, I have 5 classrooms, Class1, Class2, Class3, Class4, and Class5. When I try to create my lesson plans to use that classroom, it only shows Class1 and Class4. Please help!

1. Right click the floor of a classroom to remove it.

2. Try to remove the classrooms and then designate them again.

the kids do not go in thare class

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi!

It's hard to tell. Could you please send us your game save data or screenshot?

how do i do that?

Get file from C:\Users\[Your user name]\AppData\LocalLow\DandeStudios\School Simulator\Saves

and send us: dandestudios@gmail.com

Thanks!

um so i make a worker room and all of the workers go to the wall of the room?

Hi!

Remember to have a little space behind chairs. Maybe that will help.

I am also wondering how to edit class sizes. I currently have a class size of 5/15 and it’s very weird so i’d like to change it to merge with another class

Currently there is no option for changing class size limit or merging. Sorry.

Hi, I was wondering what week competitions start how they work. I am running extremely low on funds and I heard competitions bring in a lot of money.

HI!

Competitions starts each winter. It will be marked in calendar. Competitions are splitted into 3 stages: City, Country and World. After winning one stage you are qualified to the next one. Your best student will go automatically for each competition.

Prices for 1 place: 

City: 5000$

Country: 10000$

World: 15000$

Sorry for late answer.

Will you get any prizes if you get a place and continue to the next stage?

Yes you will get some money for each stage even if your student is below 1st place.

Im on chrome how do i download the game. I tried all of the download files, none of them worked.

Hi!

Our game is working on Windows, Linux and MacOs. If you mean chrome OS by saying "chrome" it will not work, sorry :/

Hi!  The game is really great so far, I'm enjoying what you've done.  I have a few questions/suggestions, though:

First: I encountered a bug where I slept on the first Friday of the game and then slept all the way to the following Thursday.  When I quit, my progress was gone :(


1) Any plans to add more furniture and objects?

2) Can you make an easy way to copy/paste the lesson plans?  It's so tedious planning each day at the moment.

3) Can you add the clock to the screen so we don't have to access it by looking at the menu each time?

4) Any plans to implement a cafeteria or playground equipement?

5) Please give an option to speed the game up!  In general, it would be nice to have UI on the bottom of the screen in live mode to speed, slow down, pause and see what time it is (and maybe some other stats, like what classes are running at the moment).

6) Right now I've just put breaks in between classes, but it would be nice to schedule things like "lunch" or "recess" or "free period."


Thanks so much in advance!

Hi!

We know there are some bugs with saving and we are fixing some of them in every update, that's why game is still is Pre-Alpha. Sorry for your lost save data :/

1) Yes, for sure we will add some new furnitures in the future.

2) We know that setting up lessons it quite tedious and we are thinking how to improve that. Maybe we will add copy/paste.

3) We have plans to add some new UI elements (also clock) in the 0.5.1 Update.

4) Currently no plans for that.

5) Speed time option will be available only in the build mode (as it is now). We want to add pause in the future updates.

6) You can schedule "free period" be not assigning any lesson. Then studens will go the the rest rooms, use vending machines etc.


Have a great day!

I keep managing to place floors within floors, like building a floor but there is still unbuilt flooring in the same tile

Hi!

We will try to fix it in the next update.

Hey there, just wanted to offer some feedback. I just downloaded this today (10/2/19).  I ran into an issue where I was working on the lesson plan and end of day hit and it teleported me into the bedroom, but my mouse disappeared and the lesson plan was still on the screen. It took me a minute to realize the ESC button would close it. I don't know if maybe pausing the game when you're in the lesson plan would help. I also think there should be a message or something before you're teleported to the bedroom as it's very disorienting to just suddenly see blue and then see the "SLEEP" button.

Other than that, it's pretty cool. I've started playing around with unity myself and this helps give me an idea of what I want to do for my own games.

Good idea. We will add this in the next update, thanks!

About saving. It seems my game wasn't saved for some game days (like 5 to 10 days) .

Also I notice that maps and things I hang on the walls disappear. (The history and Math stuff)

I will come back if the problem persists. It might have been just my impression.

Edit: Also, PLEASE solve the thing where you can place random rectangles full of fresh rebar foundation if you right click in a certain way (hard to explain, only happens accidentaly)
(This:)


Rectangles of rebar foundation just appear randomly, I just remember that I right click and fwap, a new random layer of foundation appears, and it overlaps with what I already had going and now I have to demolish and make the whole thing again (the double foundation overlapped inside each other make designated rooms (classrooms, lounges etc.) buggy.
EDIT2: AGAIN. GAAAH, PLEASE, FOR GOD'S LOVE, AN UNDO BUTTON. :(

Hi!

Bug with saving has been found and will be fixed in the next update.

Thanks for describing that floor bug. If everything goes well, it also will be fixed in the next update. 

For now you can only destroy objects, but we want to add undo in the future. Sorry :/

Well I have 6 teachers (I could've done better) for the one class (1A) I got. 20k per week. No new student ministery thing popping up in the messages, I will bankrupt before the new generation comes :P
Make it possible to take new students mid-year or quarterly (tho I didn't even reach the end of the spring so you might have done so)

Hello!

Yes, we know that we have some money balance issues. We are trying to improve that each update. So you can expect some small changes in the next one. Sorry for that :/

No problem. I love the game anyway.
Tho I want to ask in which time/date do you receive new students (via mail from ministry)

You can get some new students every year in 1 spring.

this might be stupid but i put a wall and its just there floating idk how to delete it...anyone?

Hello!

To destroy object to need to enter the destruction mode by clicking the bomb icon in the bottom right corner. When you enable it just click at object that you want to destroy.

Hi!

What do you mean by "it doesn't"? After seeing "Saving game..." your game data is saved to disk C on your PC. To load that just press the "Load" button in main menu, and everything will work fine.

Hi!

Yes, we know that many people are struggling with game mechanics in their first playthrough. That's why we are currently working on in game tutorial that should be finished next week. If you want to make sure that your game is saved, look at top left corner for "Saving game...". When that text disappears it means your game is saved.

Thank you. Will re-download after implementation. <3

Wait you didn't have a tutorial?

How do you save your game? Or does it autosave?

How do i make money? im making a bit with vending machines, but im not sure how to make more. I've got students, teachers, and builders and a whole school.

There are few ways to earn some money:

- From vending machines.

-After each season (4 weeks) the ministry of education will give your some money for each student.

-From competitions.

Hello! My teachers are always outside when my students are in the correct classroom.. HOW DO I FIX IT :(

It is hard to tell without screenshot or save data. Make sure you placed a "Teacher desk" with chair.

Hello, how do i delete or sell furniture i can’t get rid of it😬

When you are in BuildMode click the bomb icon in the bottom right corner, then press LMB to destroy furniture.

Hello!

Make sure that they can find a route to the target object. Maybe you didn't built stairs?
