Fellow Tropicans,  

Tropico 6 has just received Update 13 – Esparcidor de Estiércol. This update introduces the new ‘Flophouse’ building – providing, well… a roof (at least) for the poor – and the ‘Manure Spreader’, which should help put all that llama poo to good use. 

By popular request, we’ve also added 3 new multiplayer maps, along with a handful of improvements and bug fixes. 

Viva Tropico! 

Faithfully yours,  

The Tropican Ministry of Binary Magic
