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.

Altar is looking SICK!

Will there be any kind of counter check for the counter logic?
If I were to have the counter set to 10.
But I have a button that decrements by 15.
Is there any way at the moment to refuse to decrement the counter due to it not being enough?

And any way for it to check how much is decremented?
Such as; if 15 is decremented, send output. If 20 decremented, send a different output.

I know this kinda stuff is probs planned, but not sure if such a thing will be with the counter being added.

You can set the counter’s Min/Max values. So if you set the Min to 0 and decrement by 15, it’ll clamp to 0.

Currently there is only OnChanged, OnReachedMax, OnReachedMin outputs.

Condo I/O lookin’ real good!

Y’all have any plans for accessory tweaking? I’d love to be able to resize accessories since they look awkward on some models, and maybe move them a bit to the left/right/front/back/up/down.


You can do this for workshop models you upload yourself but it’s 1 offset vale per type. 1 for hats, 1 for neck, 1 for glases, etc etc

yeah but it woupd be sick to be able to change scaling and offsets for all workshop items to create your own style

Well of course, but I meant in public models! I have yet to get a model of my own so I gotta work with workshop models and one of my favorites has neck accessories way too big for it.
