Today a large update has been released. The 0.4 update, this marks the next step in the games development.

You can download the game at the game's gamejolt page.

Vaccines
Vaccines has been implemented in the game.
To use a vaccine you need to have build an vaccine office and researched the appropriate vaccine.

After you unlocked the vaccine you can create more in the vaccine UI.

Patients will use the vaccine when its available, but when you don't have it available they will get sick after a amount of time, which means they will use more space and time in the hospital.

Patient behavior
Patients now use the benches more efficiently, they will look for the bench closest to their destination instead of just finding a random bench in the hospital.

New Rooms
With the stage 3 research your unlocking more rooms for your hospital, the first ones that are implanted are the vaccine room and the MRI scanner room.

Vaccine Room

The vaccine room is needed to make vaccines to cure patients.

MRI Scanner
The MRI scanner room is used for diagnosing more complex illnesses.

Messages

Government funding game mode
I've added a new game mode into the game, government funding.

With government funding you don't get payed per patient but you get a set amount of money per day this option gives a different game style then the default option.

You can turn on the government funding option in the game options in the main menu.

Ambulance routing
I've created an update for the ambulance routing, the major fix was released with 0.3.4 and in the 0.4 update I made improvements that build on the previous update.

I will work on adding more content in the 0.4 update and slowly work towards the final Alpha update 0.5, with the 0.5 update all the game mechanism will be in place the game will move into an beta state with and I will work on fixing and improving the game overall, the focus from 0.5 onwards will be a lot less on new content (since most of it will be implemented by then).
