Weekly Dev Log for April 25th, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for April 25th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since April 18th, 2022. 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.

Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

Update 0.15.1.1

We’re continuing to work on the 0.15.1.1 update, which fixes a bunch of bug fixes and crash fixes, as well as some minor changes.

You can view the 0.15.1.1 update changes here.

SDNL: Containership

@Johanna continued working on Containership, furthering the art and shortening the ship so it matches the layout more.

Miscellany

@Lifeless continued working on the blockout for SDNL: Frostbite.

@macdguy worked on fixing some issues with the player blocking system, as well as making it easier to block / mute players. He also continued working on Casino: Phase 2, fixing some issues with poker and figuring out how the newer games are going to be designed and implemented.

@JJosh continued working on various items and third party plushes.

@Madmijk continued working on the Condo instruments, working on adding a bunch of sound samples.

@Sketchman continued working on backend improvements and optimizations, working on improving workshop performance. He also started working on Casino: Phase 2.

@Wheezwer continued working on Steam backgrounds and art for the Horse Racing Casino machine.

@Will continued working on music for SDNL.

Easier Player Blocking WIP

This popup menu will show up when clicking on players on the scoreboard or chat. We plan to expand this popup to other parts of the game such as the voice chat and directly clicking on player models.

This will also have a “Permissions” option while you are in condos to access condo permissions faster.

We also plan to add condo owner options as a popup like this when you right click on players. So you can easily teleport to / from and issue out kick / bans without having to open the profile each time.

I, for one, am glad Tankman plushies are being added, I’ve had a Tankman figure in real life since my Newgrounds using days so now I can immerse myself even further by adding him into my condo
