Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for February 22nd, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since February 16th, 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.
Update 0.13.4.1 / Update 0.13.4.2 / Double Ticket Weekend Event
Last week, we released Update 0.13.4.1, which fixed bugs and included various improvements. This update also introduced the very first Double Weekend Event, our first event being Doubled Tickets in the Arcade. There will be more and more events that will occur throughout the year, so stay tuned!
We also released a smaller hotfix, Update 0.13.4.2, which fixed some issues with Billiards.
We’ve also started working on the next update, Update 0.13.4.3, which will include numerous fixes and improvements to Condo Building. You can view all the details of the 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.
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.
