Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for the week of August 13th, 2018. Here’s what the dev team was up to this week! 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.
Mac has continued working on the ingame workshop editor, reworked the UI for uploading items to workshop, allowed importing of more file types, as well as fixing some issues with workshop itself. He also added a proper tag system to allow users to tag their models when uploading.
