Weekly Dev Log for August 15th, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for August 15th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since August 8th, 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.

Casino: Phase 2

Most of the work on Casino: Phase 2 has been completed. We’re currently in the clean-up period, fixing some last minute bugs and conducting internal play tests. We plan on having a Public Beta Test for Casino: Phase 2 at some point in the future before the main release, so stay tuned on our Discord and Twitter for information.

@macdguy continued working on bug fixes for Casino - Phase 2, as well as adding finishing touches to the items for the new Spin 2 Win wheel.

@Will continued working on music and sounds for the Casino.

New Condo Items

@macdguy worked on adding two new items for the Condo, a Canvas Decal item and a Nightclub Spotlight. New settings were also added to physics items, allowing the player to set a respawn location when a item is thrown. This can be useful for Physical Media so the item will respawn at its original resting place.

New Condo Item: Canvas Decal

New Condo Item: Nightclub Spotlight
