Extreme Depths and Heights Update (2 New Condos) (0.3.1.0)


#1

Hello again sTUdfishes, we’re back with more exciting new content and fixes for you to enjoy.

##2 NEW CONDOS: UNDERWATER AND HIGHRISE!

##UNDERWATER CONDO
A new Condo map by Johanna; a marvel of engineering, an underwater Condo with multiple housing.


##HIGHRISE CONDO
A new Condo map by Mr. Sunabouzu; a luxurious Condo located on top of a skyscraper in the middle of a beautiful city.


##IMPROVED CONDO LIGHT AND SURFACE EDITING
Before this update, you could only customize lights in the default Condo. Now with a revamped lighting system, you can edit lights in every Condo!

To use this new lighting system, simply open your inventory and look for glowing light symbols around the Condo. Right click on them and start editing! You’ll notice there’s a new light function feature which will let you set lights to pulsate or cycle through colors.

On top of that, we’ve overhauled the surface editor for when you customize walls and floors of your Condo. Surfaces now can be listed by material type (ie. brick, tile, carpet) and we’ve added Canvas support to surfaces so you can truly customize your abode.

##VOICE ISSUES RESOLVED FOR LOBBY AND CONDO
We had many reports of the voice system not working well in Lobby and Condo and this update should alleviate all voice related issues.

##ALCOHOLIC ITEMS WILL NOW MAKE YOU INEBRIATED
In past updates, there have been issues with alcoholic items not affecting clients. This is now resolved. We have plans to expand on this by adding vomiting and garbled drunk chat text in future updates.

##TESTING DESTRUCTIBLES: SUBWAY
We’re adding more feedback for environmental destruction in Virus. Subway is the first map to start using the environmental damaging systems. We hope to continue to expand on these new systems to other maps soon. You can now destroy the ticket machines and signs and shoot at smaller items as well.

I’m currently at my grandma’s, anyone able to tell me how much Highrise costs?

God this update is awesome. Loving the new light and surface stuff. Been having fun remastering my old condos with the new tools.

And Highrise is absolutely gorgeous. Great layout and affordable price. Would reccomend it, Love how open ended it is. That sub-basement is killer! Hottub on the roof over looking the city and basketball court in the basement. Living the dream I tell you.
