Weekly Dev Log for February 21st, 2019

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for February 21st, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since February 13th, 2019. 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.

Hot Fix 0.6.6.4

Earlier this week we released Hot Fix 0.6.6.4, which included some changes to our backend systems to prepare them for Achievements, Upgrades, and Milestones, along with some bug fixes and new additions such as Vote Kicking. You can read the full changelog here.

First Person Legs

@macdguy implemented First Person Legs, which allows you to now see your character’s body and legs when you look down. This is toggle-able in the options menu should the player want to turn this off.

Viewfinders

@macdguy also worked this week on Viewfinders, which will be usable in Lobby 3.

Lobby 3

@Johanna @Lifeless and @Madmijk continued working very hard on Lobby 3. This week, @Johanna created a sneak peak of Lobby 3, showing off the new Casino Building. @macdguy also worked on Innertubes for the Lobby Pool and the Slides.
Note: Everything concerning Lobby 3 is work in progress as it is still heavily in development.

Achievements, Milestones, Upgrades, and Stats

Work has continued on creating the several milestone items. @macdguy completed all of the achievements calls, and hooked up all of the Leaderboards except for Plaza and Typing Derby. The EXP system was also fully integrated into all of the games.

Backend Work

Behind the scenes, work continues on getting the backend systems required for the achievements, milestones, and upgrades finished.

Wrap It Up

That about covers everything that happened since February 13th, 2019 at PixelTail Games. See you all next week!

Also with the rings around the gameworld ports, the lobby kinda reminds me of a theme park. Guess it definitely fits the resort theme


#10

Looking awesome as I expected.

With every passing update, it gets better and better. Keep it up, proud of you. <3


#13

Looking great. Love the 50s looking theme


#14

For me, One part of what make a game with a First-Person camera good, is the fact that you can see your own legs. It’s surprising the amount of games that don’t have that if you’ve never thought of it.
I’m happy of that new feature. :grinning:

so we’re still getting them! :crab:


#16

Smart idea. Most new players ask where to get these.


#17

A bit of feedback, I personally think the signs above the doors and the slot machines above the building are a little too much.


#18

Now this is very cool and wicked and radical.
