Pc Building Simulator [TOP]

In Career mode, the game puts the player in responsibility of a workshop where they must complete tasks that involve modifying pre-built computers, (e.g. removing viruses, adding new parts) or building a brand new computer to earn in-game cash, which can be spent on purchasing new or used parts (see below). After each completed task, the player earns a certain number of experience points. When a certain amount of experience is reached, the player levels up, unlocking newer and more advanced parts.

Potential requests include virus removal, system upgrade, system fix, overclocking, or building of an entirely new personal computer. Depending on the amount of spending required for each request, the customers often always give the player a substantial profit margin. However, after accepting an order, unfulfilled requests are automatically rejected from returning to the customer, meaning that the player cannot simply conduct cash grab by doing nothing with the PC. As the game advances, timed jobs become more common. Being unable to conduct jobs within the limit will result in the customer revoking their order, having the players waste their money by buying unnecessary parts.

Main requests, such as building, fixing, and upgrading the gaming rigs, are provided by the team manager using the regular Inbox system; athletes will also ask in-depth requests using new Smartphone mechanics.

There are several upgrades that can ease the PC building, such as self-installing motherboard standoff screws. Said upgrades are unlocked by default in Free Build and Esports modes, but must be unlocked and bought in Career mode and are there to aid in speeding up tasks.

PC Building Simulator puts you in control of a small business that specializes in servicing and building PCs. You have a relative that previously ran the operation to the point of failure and you must rebuild its reputation and balance sheet. As you acquire more income and strengthen your reputation as a computer repair wizard, you will gain access to tougher jobs and increasingly higher-tier hardware.

As a result, it's up to you to get your shop back in order, making enough money from client orders, virus removals and repair jobs to keep the lights on, pay your bills and gradually upgrade your workshop into the PC building dream palace you've envisioned since you first got a whiff of some that sweet, sweet CPU thermal paste.

In its How to Build a PC tutorial mode, each component receives a detailed explanation on what it does and where it fits into the overall PC build, and I could easily envision using this as a template for making sure I'd got each and every last bit screwed in correctly in the right order if I was building a PC for the first time - even if it does let you fling hard disks and CPUs around in your inventory box with worrying abandon.

In this sense, PC Building Simulator often glosses over the hard graft involved in real-world PC building, but the developer's road map for the game shows that some of that physicality is at least on its way. Features like cable management, allowing players to thread their own cables and make their own routes as opposed to having it magically snap into place, and case modding are all in the pipeline, as well as overclocking, water cooling and RAID options. It may not be wholly realistic at times, but as an introduction to PC building, I'd say it lays a pretty solid foundation.

It's when you switch over to the career mode, however, that you begin to feel your own internal clock speed grinding to a tedious halt. The first job that arrived in my inbox, for instance, was to run an antivirus program on a corrupted PC using my trusty one-stop-shop USB stick in my inventory. No building, no undoing of screws, nothing. Just installing a simulated program on a simulated PC inside my own, real-life PC and waiting a few seconds for it to clean it before I yank out the cables (apparently you don't need to painstakingly disconnect everything when you finish a job despite any given PC refusing to boot properly unless you have both your simulated mouse, keyboard and monitor plugged into the back of it when you first power it on) and deposit it back at my workshop door and wait for it to be magically whisked away by an invisible courier as soon as I claim my payment.

There's also a free-build mode where you can make the ultimate PC of your simulated dreams, but when you can't actually do anything with it at the end of it, the pay-off is pretty depressing. The best part of building a new PC, after all, is being able to boot up your favourite games and playing them in all their shiny glorious detail. In PC Building Simulator, the only thing you can do is stick it in a cupboard, and that makes me very sad indeed.

I'll be interested to see how PC Building Simulator progresses over the coming months as it heads towards a full release, especially as the developers have promised more career content in the form of new job types and customisation features. If they can tap into the real nitty-gritty of PC building instead of weighing you down with simple, rudimentary installations and virus removal jobs, then it could turn into something quite special. In its current form, though, I'd recommend it only as a visual guide to first-time PC builders, as its career mode just takes too long to really get going.

PC Building Simulator is, as its name suggests, a game that allows you to build PCs in a virtual world from Claudiu Kiss and The Irregular Corporation, which is exactly what you get in free-build mode. The career mode however is more of a PC repair simulator- you have inherited a repair shop from your uncle who had just retired, and will be tasked with repairing and building PCs for cash. How you spend the cash you earn from the repairs would be up to you, but it is advisable to stay out of the red- even if your bank is generous enough to give you an overdraw limit of $1000, dip below that and they start charging a daily loan interest. Aiding you would be several upgrades that will make your life easier. You also start the game at level 1, with experience coming in as you complete repair and build tasks. Gaining levels would allow you access to better components and better paying jobs.

  • Tropes Acceptable Breaks from Reality: More fiddly aspects of PC building like cable management are downplayed in favour of the more wide-reaching steps. The game really simplifies some of the errors you may encounter while troubleshooting hardware. In real life, troubleshooting hardware isn't always that easy.

  • Data backup and data recovery is not even found in the game at all.

  • Achievement Mockery: There are several achievements for breaking things, either parts or the company.

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: In the IT Expansion, Ira T. Elster has poison injected into himself every few weeks to build up an immunity. He tries to do the same thing to his computer by pumping it full of viruses, but finds out the hard way it doesn't work like that.

  • Anti-Frustration Features: Instead of being built-in, several upgrades you can buy are things to reduce fiddle factor, like an extra workbench or automatically plugging in external cables. The sequel adds the ability to rotate a PC on the bench and changes the interface so all a player needs to do is click on screws to install or remove them.

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: In career mode, this happens at the end of Giovanna Sciarra's storyline. Her increasingly weird emails indicate being on the verge of a discovery and requiring hardware from the player for research. This is eventually followed by an email from her brother, informing the player that Giovanna has vanished, leaving only charred equipment behind, and inquiring whether they know anything. Giovanna herself then emails the player to confirm this trope is in effect. The sequel's Career Mode reveals that the hardware she had set up wound up burning the shop from the first game down

  • Bland-Name Product: DFL is probably one for DFI corp. Also, PC-Bay. The competitors in the E-sports DLC play Heart of Stone, Guild of Guardians, Fortfight, Soccar and Strike Back Go, but real games (including these) are often mentioned in the main mode.

  • In the IT Expansion, there is the company Irratech Corp, PC Toolbox Magazine, the TikkIT app, and the Dekor website.

  • The posters in the sequel are for TV shows, video games, and movies that are fictitious.

  • Brand X: Played straight with Mortoni and Shean, but otherwise averted with all the real-world hardware brands that partnered with the developer.

  • GIS Syndrome: A lot of the wallpapers found on your clients' PCs seem to be lifted off google images. A feature was later patched in where the player's own in-game PC would use their actual background image. The sequel uses the player's own PC wallpaper by default.

  • Incompetence, Inc.: The player's uncle ran what could generously be called a cowboy operation. Routinely forgetting thermal paste on the CPU, never running tests before releasing a fix, and keeping barely out of the red before stealing some money from the business's limited bank account for gas as a final act before dumping the ailing business without telling the clients and skipping town. The business's not-Yelp reviews are rock bottom and a couple of the first scripted fixes are send-backs from disgruntled customers claiming the repairs didn't fix anything. Fortunately he was small-time enough too few people heard the bad buzz to stop you turning it around. In the sequel, an accident caused an accident that burned down the shop seen in the first game, and you are the one in charge of a new shop and are teaching your uncle how to do tasks properly.

  • Percussive Maintenance: The printer in IrraTech has one of the ways to fix it if turning it off and on again doesn't work. Hitting it five times to fix it gives the "PC LOAD LETTER" achievement.

  • Product Placement: The main draw of the game. The game prominently showcases products that you can buy in real life and there are posters of real magazine covers plastered all over your workshop. Likewise, almost all the game titles mentioned in the game really exist on Steamnote Feudal Fantasy XIII is the one entry that doesn't exist. Likewise, there are several DLCs centered around the real life Original Equipment Manufacturers (NZXT, Asus' ROG, Gigabyte's Aorus and Razer, to name a few)

  • Unintentionally Unwinnable: Your own office PC has parts like any other PC in game, and can be disassembled. This is intended to allow you to "trick out" your rig when you just feel like spending some money (or some awesome-looking used parts you may happen to find), but you may even downgrade your PC to help fulfill customer requests or to recoup some cash (it may help you get through Early Game Hell in hard mode). However, if you are dumb or careless enough to sell enough parts that you can't build a PC anymore, you'll be stuck without any way to access your email or shop.

  • You Have Researched Breathing: For some reason, you don't get access to certain parts such as storage and additional workbenches until you reach a certain level, regardless of how much money you have.
