Weekly Dev Log for December 6th, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for December 6th, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since November 23rd, 2021. 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.

December 2021 Condo Contest IN PROGRESS!

The theme this time, just like last year, is Winter and/or Winter Festivity!

As always, feel free to interpret that how you see fit, as long as the connection to the theme is clear. Desolate snowy landscapes, snowed-in cabins, winter wonderlands, Christmas villages- anything wintery can work, so have fun with it!

The deadline to submit your entries is January 2nd, 2022 at 11:59PM CT.

You can read more about the contest 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.

Unrelated question but what is the game on the left supposed to be?

That’s been there for a while, I think its supposed to be one of those games where a light on the spiral lights up and you need to pull back a ball so that it rolls just enough to reach the spot where the light is, then rolls back down

Awesome!!! Love all the progress updates for the game, especially these past few weeks! Monorail system is literal epicness.

Question though! Will the Appearance Editor get options for things like hair styles, face types, etc.?

So have dual-rails roller-coaster and a monorail train coming next.

Can’t wait for the next no-rails update.
