Weekly Dev Log for June 13th, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 13th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since June 6th, 2022. 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.

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.

June 2022 Condo Contest IN PROGRESS!

I’m sorry, I must’ve read that wrong, did you say a goddamn Ice Planet Condo??

I’m not against it, it’s actually pretty cool, but holy hell that’s unexpected.

Please tell me you’re gonna add more condos to that mix, or prize-based condos.

I still think there should be a Plaza Tower Apartment Condo. Plaza Apartment? Plazapartment? Plazapartment. Let’s go with that. Big modern apartment, window view. You can change options in the window to swap to different sides of the tower for different views. North Side for the central Plaza Fountain area, Eastside for the Boardwalk, Southside for the Pool/Minigame Plaza, and west side for the distant island and west beach. It’d be a hit.

Can’t wait for Ice Planet Christmas Condos tho.

everything about this dev log is INSANE, im so hyped to see all of this make it to the game eventually. I’m so happy you guys decided to make a new spin to win because all of the prizes look so cool, the moon condo is obviously the big standout but every one of the prizes this time around look super nice and I can’t wait to get like 300 of each.

Corrosion looks great and Altar I’m super excited about since Aztec was one of my favorite maps aesthetically in GMT and it seems to have a very similar theme.

I’ve wanted new sound emitters for SO long too so it’s amazing that more are finally being added soon. very cool dev log thaknks

Previews for Casino Phase 2 preview, another virus map reveal along with Corrosion progress, and a space themed Condo with open space?

Whew, what a wonderful dev log.

Altar is meant to be a full reimagining of Aztec, using the same base theming. I really like Mesoamerican design, so I thought it’d be perfect for my first map!

You’ll receive the value in Units, basically making this an money prize slot.

Alternatively you could just play a clip of the planet exploding with a new planet in its place. That’d be funny.

But yeah no I hope that the prize is fairly substantial. Also can the OG Spin To Win be adjusted to feature only items that can’t be bought in stores? A projector and Laser pointer are cool but are way more easily obtainable now compared to long ago in the 2016-2017 era of TU.

I am so ready for this! That condo is gonna get the worst of me, however.
