Weekly Dev Log for April 12th, 2019
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for April 12th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since March 29th, 2019. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.
Today we released Hotfix 0.7.1.1, which contained some minor changes to Event Horizon, a detail pass for Rob’s Imports, and some bug fixes. You can read all about that update here.
Last week, we released Update 0.7.1.0, which added some fixes and features, most notably the new Ball Race map, Event Horizon. You can read all about that update here.
Work on Fishing progresses, with @JJosh working on some new bobbers and fishing rods. @macdguy also changed the gameplay for Fishing, and wrote a small post about Fishing’s current status, which you can read here. There was also some work done on the different kinds of Fish Ghosts, which tell the player a little bit about the fish they are about to get. For example, the larger fish ghost would hint to the player that they’re going to get a certain type of large fish.
