Weekly Dev Log for July 8th, 2024

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for July 8th, 2024, detailing all the changes that have happened since July 1st, 2024. 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.

Kalleira Plushie and Pins

Since you guys are awesome and funded our previous campaigns, we were able to start two Makeship campaigns on June 28th!

This time the campaigns are for a 3-pack of pins and a Kalleira (+ Cosmic Catsack) plushie. You can order them in a bundle, so you can save, if you want to do that!

The campaigns will be running for a limited time, so be sure to keep an eye on them if you want to snag them for yourself!

Buying this merch seriously helps us with funding TU’s development, and we can’t thank you enough for supporting us in any way you have already.

Also, to those of you who bought the Cornelius Plush: keep an eye out! Those should be shipping out later this month!

Minigolf Map Maker

We’re nearing completion on getting the Minigolf Map Maker out the door, and into all of your hands. We’re super excited to see what maps the community is able to create with these tools.

While doing some internal testing, we made a couple proof of concepts using props and the same tools you’ll be getting.

Minigolf Map Maker: Testing

Using the Sky Volume, Post Processing Volume, and some set decorations, it’s very easy to make a Martian landscape.

Minigolf Map Maker: Hole Piece

Every Minigolf course will need a hole! This week, we setup the tool to work well with actually placing down flags into it. It’ll automatically snap into the hole for you, even when adjusting dipped mode and such (mouse cursor is offset from the recording).

Minigolf Map Maker: Camera Editor

All of the hard work of getting splines working and the camera system culminated in the Minigolf Intro Camera tool. This allows you as the map maker to make custom camera intros for each hole. If one isn’t place, it’ll default to a static camera.

I/O Camera

The Camera tech for the Minigolf Map Maker has also been exported for use for other game world maps, as well as for use in the Condo.

I/O Camera: Splines

I/O Camera: All Settings


@Johanna worked on fixing issues with the Plaza for the next update, as well as implementing changes to the Minigolf Map Maker due to feedback from internal testing.

@Josh continued working on character models.

@Lifeless worked on adding the SDNL voice lines, made a couple minigolf holes for the new Minigolf map, and continued working on several QOL features.

@macdguy worked on finishing up the Minigolf Map Maker, and worked on some workshop browser improvements (fixing issues where maps wouldn’t load, fixing the UI, ading controller support to the UI, etc).

@Sketchman fixed an issue that was blocking further VR development, and continued working on bug fixes and optimizations.

@Will continued working on music.

This is my fear… I have a feeling I know we’re going to have the ability to label our custom courses between easy and hard… so players can download them corresponding to level of difficulty they feel like playing

But I know some people are going to go above and beyond and make an insanity level map xD

I am really looking forward to both the simple casual maps and the insane ones that people will make.

Omg think of the possibilities this has unleashed into our hands :smiling_imp:


I think that maybe a difficulty above hard would be good for this lol


When are we getting custom skybox images?
Still phenomenally needed tool for both condos and gamemode maps.


thank you charlie from smiling friends


My close friend recently ordered the pins for my birthday- very excited because i got few spots left on my pin board so it’ll be perfect to complete it with tower unite pins :heart:

that asides- mini golf maker videos looks absolutely amazing! i’m genuinely very impressed and so excited! also super excited about VR progress too!!
