Weekly Dev Log for April 13th, 2018
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for the week of April 13th, 2018. If you haven’t heard, we’ve recently retired our old Daily Dev Log in favor of the Weekly Dev Log, which will allow us to give a broader picture and explain things in plain English, while also including some photos from development. Without further ado, let’s get started.
@macdguy made some changes to Tower Unite that will be showing up in a future update. A ban list was added to the Condo permissions menu, allowing admins to add and remove condo bans easily through the menu. The House Condo was also optimized, reducing its memory footprint from 1.3GB to 700MB, and the baseboards and odd side accent from the garage were removed. The light switch models in the Condos were given LODs, and the baseboards were removed from the walls in the Default Condo.
@Matt continued working on the Grenade Launcher, creating the scope model.
@macdguy worked on the Helicopter Evac system for the end of each round. The way the Helicopter was designed allows it to potentially be used as a milestone reward for Zombie Massacre.

@Will started working on firing sounds for the Shotguns and the Retro Guitar, and finished the melee sounds for the Guitar and Chainsaw.

He also added a Plaza floor light item, along with 2 Ceiling Lights, Curved Ceiling Light, a Round Wall Light, a Small Round Light, a Prism Light, an Annular Ceiling Light, a Greek Column, a Queue Line Fence, a Dock Lamp, 2 Beach Umbrella Items, a Wood Fence, and a Casino Railing.
