Can't wait for final release.

I'm just wondering if I should get my blueprints in order and save a near empty world with a rail system pre installed.. I love the trains.

Private Equity Firm Bought My Employer

It was majority employee-owned before the acquisition but is now majority owned by private equity firm. The main change I'm noticing is that everyone is being pressured to work uncompensated overtime (we're all on salary here) and requests for training/professional development have been all but eliminated. They also initially...

A lot of people already said it.. sorry for all the doom and gloom.

If you can, gtfo and if you have stock get rid of it. What you see is just the beginning. Next stage all the most competent employees will jump ship, and will not be replaced. Leaving not only fewer employees to do the same work, it also leaves the ones without the skills and knowledge.

It will get sour fast, and whoever is in charge is there for the private equity to maximize their ROI. So no use talking to management or HR.

The strategy is to strip the company to the bones. Anything that can be sold will be sold (Buildings, furniture, IP). And if the company needs it to operate it will be leased back at a monthly rate. All cash this generates is pulled from the company to the PE firm. If they can they will saddle the company with a debt for the purchase of itself, so they can have the company not only pay that back, but with interest (a leveraged buyout). Some of these assets sold off can easily go to other subsidiaries of the same PE firm.. such as real estate. Assuring their long term profitability.

I really like their updates and direct way of interaction with the community. Some of their updates are a bit more technical like this one, but they seem to understand that some of their uses love needing out with a game. Their priorities seem very much in order. I also love that they have a good vision on their game and actively reduce tedium so people can focus on the core gameplay and don't get bogged down with busy work to keep the game progressing.

Their communication is so good. Open and direct, they have a vision for their game and are open to feedback but also say no.
