Update 0.10.3.0 & Hotfix 0.10.3.1
Last week, we released Update 0.10.3.0 which introduced the new Accelerate map Sunrise Isles, as well as Continuous Play, which allows a new map to be selected at the end of a game world without having to go back to the Plaza or Main Menu. We also released Hotfix 0.10.3.1 which fixed some bugs with the initial release, as well as other changes. You can read about everything that was in Update 0.10.3.0 here, and Hotfix 0.10.3.1 here.
@Johanna continued working on Track 2 of Sunrise Isles.
@macdguy worked on a bunch of fixes for Accelerate that came up with Update 0.10.3.0.

@JJosh continued working on the model for one of the Arcade NPCs.
@macdguy worked on fixes for certain achievements that wouldn’t unlock correctly, and finished the UI for Workshop Condos.
@Madmijk continued working on the snapping system for items, and fixed issues with the Launcher Pad item.
@Sketchman started working on the “Undo/Redo” system for Condos, adding undo logging for properties other than position, scale, and rotations, while also hooking up the logging for the copycat tool. He also fixed some iffy logic with the Gizmos, fixed an issue with Scale Lock in the Build UI, and fixed an issue where items would draw on top of the Gizmo. He fixed an issue with the moderation system, did some touchups to the Jetpack Ad in the Plaza, fixed an issue with network synch, implemented some networking optimizations when joining a server, and fixed a collision issue with the Radiator item.
@Wheezwer started working on art for the Maze Spinner arcade machine and worked on the mural for the Accelerate Upgrades port.
