Weekly Dev Log for June 22nd, 2020

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 22nd, 2020, detailing all the changes that have happened since June 15th, 2020. 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.

Accelerate Progress

Work is wrapping up on the initial Alpha release of Accelerate, slated for our next major release, 0.10.0.0. As mentioned last week, this initial version of Accelerate will feature Pine Valley, with two rounds per race. Future versions of Accelerate will have two tracks in each map per race.

@Johanna worked on finishing touches for Track 1 of Pine Valley, and then worked on finishing Track 1 of Sunrise Isles.

@Lifeless continued working on Track 2 of Bedzoom.

@macdguy worked on items, bug fixes, gameplay improvements, camera adjustments when drifting and boosting, and implementing the upgrades system.

@Madmijk worked on bug fixes, created the catsack and dogbag crowd system, and improved the aesthetics of some items.

@Sketchman worked on fixed for the Flux effect, and some issues with the nametag system.

@Wheezwer created a “Do Not Enter” sign, updated the flags for the catsack/dogbag crowd that watches you race! She also created banners for the ending podiums.

@Will continued working on music and sounds, finishing Pine Valley and Bedzoom tracks and adding new sound effects for boosting, item use, lapping, voice lines, and other gameplay events.

Yeah that last GIF wouldn’t embed and had a wonky link

The Brochures look great so far! But, what will they be for? Are they gonna be like advertisements or…what?

You’ll be able to open them up and see some cool extra details about each map/area in the game. It’ll be helpful for newcomers, and we might make them a collectible thing you get from Horizon Condos!
