This post includes the patch notes for the Ore Tycoon 2 Beautiful Update, and will also include all non-major update patch notes afterwards.


At long last, a new Ore Tycoon 2 update is finally here! And it isn’t just some regular update—it’s a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL update packed with TONS of new features, improvements, and fixes!

The Beautiful Update Patch Notes


  • :pray: Ore Tycoon 2 has been blessed with new and improved interface designs, packed with new features, improved cross-platform compatibility, and user-friendliness!
    • The three main screens/menus of Ore Tycoon now sports a new consistent rounded design with a protruding title bar and off-menu close button!
    • :wrench: Settings now have a dual-column design and is packed with more features than ever!
      • Game Settings have been split into three categories: Gameplay, Visuals, and Audio
      • Wanted the game to not treat you like a baby anymore by giving you occasional advices and tips? You can now turn it off from the Visual Settings!
      • Wish you can see the Ore Limit on the bottom right? Wish granted with the new option to do just that, located in the Visual Settings! Off by default.
      • Device screens and interface size preferences aren’t the same for every device and person, so we’re adding a new Interface Size setting for you to change your interface size! Choose between three predefined options: Small, Medium, and Huge.
        • Defaults to Medium for PC and Console, and Huge to Tablets and Phones.
        • We might give you more options for sizes in the future if the demand for this feature is huge
      • FAQ is now rebranded as the “HELP” Section, complete with tons of new questions and new answers for your most frequently asked questions.
    • :headphones: Featuring the ALL-NEW AUDIO PLAYER!
      • Want to know what song you’re listening to? The new audio player will now tell you that!
      • The Mute Music button / switch has been removed… because the Volume Slider is here! Set your music’s volume from 1 - 100. Your choice!
      • Added three new songs: Evanbear1 - Main Theme (Ore Tycoon 2 Original Game Soundtrack), Paul Keane - Excite (from TakeTones; CC4.0 Attributions International), and Paul Keane - Bring Me The World (from TakeTones; CC4.0 Attributions International)
      • Introducing the new “Add old songs to queue” option! This option allows you to disable TakeTones music or to add them to your queue.
        • The looped Main Theme will now be the default music for new players!
        • If you played before this update, this option will be on by default. Meaning you don’t have to do anything extra to keep on hearing the old music!
      • Want to skip the current song to jam on the next one, or go back to the last song? Say no more with the new Previous and Next buttons!
        • If you have queue off, these buttons will reset the Main Theme to 0:00 instead (and skip the current song if it isn’t the Main Theme!).
      • This is just part one of the many improvements to come to our Audio Player, so stay tuned :wink: (got it? no? okay)
    • :speech_balloon: We want to hear from all of you, but sometimes things get drowned by the number of Feedbacks we receive every day! That’s why we’ve reworked the Feedback System and added Feedback Categories to help sort out the feedback.
      • :bug: Want to inform us of an ugly bug? We now have a Bug Report feedback category to give your bug report a priority.
      • :grin: Just want to suggest the usual, or send us a few compliments to brighten up out day? No problem! The Suggestions/Feedback category is still here for you.
    • Added a new bar on the top of the Research Shop to keep things organized and clean!
      • Tycoon Bux is now displayed in the Research Shop on that new bar. No more closing the screen just to check your wallet!
    • Added a new friendly message in the Inventory if you don’t have any items that belong to that category. :slightly_smiling_face:
