TheoTown News
Information at readable speed!

Hello fellow Theonians, I got a great one for you today. TheoTown News! Packed up with 55 possible messages, brings some humour to your cities! Every 2 months (January, March, May, July, September, November), you'll see 1 (or 2 due to technical issues :bb) notifications abot events in your city. Most of messages are from SimCity 3/4, but there's some original stuff too. Brocolli, kitty shortage, German tourist, maybe some meme( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), investments... From Africa? Apart from 50 normal messages, there are also 5 special messages, showing if you build specific things. Requires radio station (duh) to show news. More will be added.
I hope you like it! :)

WARNING: IT REQUIRES THEOTOWN BETA 1.3.74 (374) OR NEWER TO WORK, OTHERWISE YOU'LL END UP WITH REPEATING MESSAGES EVERY SECOND OR ERRORS!!!

Seriously, this is like Chirper from Cities Skylines. :lol:
Is it possible to add custom messages to this plugin, as "addons"? Or would it have to be a separate plugin?

I got the idea from SimCity 4. :)
The addon system wouldn't really work, because this replaces the radio station and adds messages using fun to it. That is about 1500 lines in one json, and you would need to edit that json and add your own messages. I can add more messages if you have some ideas, this plugin also works with others, so it displays messages if you build a specific building from a plugin.
Example: Building @mdk_813's "St. Theo General Hospital" will show a message about it.

How to edit a .plugin? Before long the plugins were made in a zip folder and were easier to edit, now they are a different file and I do not understand how to edit this, could you explain?

The News Are Mostly Capitalized!
Maybe could use some suggestion from Theonians about news to be used in the future.
Just tested it today and its decent, could use more memes and catchphrases in the future.

I was watching -LeoLeo-'s live stream for a while, and it continually had a news feed notification. Not good for screen burn in on some devices.

Was he using an older version? In the older versions there was a bug with once, so if he never updated it makes sense that would happen.

I'm using the latest I can find in the app store...
Almost burnt the city twice. I'm always on the lookout then...

Plus, It's actually better after I updated (To much ivories and St.Theo, :lol:).The latest come in a group of 4 messages or so, a break, 4 more.
Feels like if you don't close the box, the news will be piling up and queuing after one another and you need to close it all til the actual warning shows up.

@CommanderABab @-LeoLeo-
Don't look at me.
That bug was fixed in 374, and it works for me.
No idea what Lobby did after it.
