Weekly Dev Log for February 16th, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for February 16th, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since February 8th, 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.

Once Update 0.13.4.0 was released, we started working on Update 0.13.4.1. This update includes bug fixes and various improvements. You can read more about this upcoming update here.

February 2021 Condo Contest

This month, we’re running a “Night Out (or In)” themed condo contest. This contest will end on March 1st, 2021. First place winner will take home at least 1,000,000 units, and all participants may be rewarded 75,000 units! You can read the details 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.

Condo: Tool Glove

@JJosh finished working on the Tool Glove model and animations. The screen of the Tool Glove is WIP, and potentially can display all sorts of information, such as a 3D representation of the item being copied, the texture being copied, etc.
