questions how likely will it be that our saves will break in updates after update 4. yeah so a couple weeks ago i mentioned in a video that tier 8 is coming and it will also kind of break your saves in update 4 so your saves will load but your factory will probably not be working anymore you may have to repair it i suppose uh so you could say that was not necessarily intended uh but given the direction of the game given the feedback we got um you know we had to change the way that we looked at tier viii and so we had to make some more drastic changes the intention now is that you know we want to avoid that of course and there is no there's actually no plan right now to do any other major rebalancing after update 4 into 1.0 so the current plan is no there won't be breaks but the reality is there there's a really big chance that you know we will start observing some you know some feedback from the game and we'll make decisions that you know well you know what we may need xyz for the game to be good and maybe that will result in in the uh saves breaking it is likely that this will happen again but we don't want it to and we don't plan on it but you never know our tiers 8-10 anywhere
