Fellow Tropicans,

Tropico 6 Update v.17 ‘Una Magnífica Memoria’ has just been released for Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

RAM consumption is reduced by up to a GB and should be especially noticeable for players with weaker hardware. We are also working on another optimization update to prepare Tropico for its brilliant and bright future!

Of course, Update 17 also contains further bug fixes, like the Metro Station upgrade for the Airport that now works as intended. Also, the efficiency of media buildings now affects their liberty value.

For more details, please check out the full changelog below.
