Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for December 21st, 2020, detailing all the changes that have happened since December 14th, 2020.

Update 0.13.2.0 (Winter Update Part 2)

After finishing the Hotfix 0.13.1.1, work began on Part 2 of the Winter Update (0.13.2.0). This update is slated to bring some new holiday items, as well as some bug fixes. You can read about what’s planned for this update here.

Update 0.13.1.0 (Karaoke Rooms) & Hotfix 0.13.1.1

Last week we released Update 0.13.1.0, which brought back the Winter Plaza and Holiday Events, as well as introducing Karaoke Room, rent-able private Nightclub rooms!

We also released a hotfix (Update 0.13.1.1), which fixed some bugs and introduced some new features, such as complete player blocking.

You can read all about Update 0.13.1.0 here, and the Hotfix 0.13.1.1 here.

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.

yessss
Super happy we’re getting Fireplaces (and that it looks like my suggestions were seen)!
If we’re getting multiple Fireplaces, can we also get the hearth (or whatever the logpile + rack is called) on its own for custom fireplaces?
