Weekly Dev Log for March 1st, 2021
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for March 1st, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since February 22nd, 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.
We’re finishing work on Update 0.13.5.0, which includes tons of numerous fixes and improvements for Condo Building, as well as the Sweet Tooth art pass. You can view all the details of this update here.
The bug where wearables would resize when a player sits in a seat has been fixed.
The bug where cosmetic items would become invisible when sitting in a seat and switching between first and third person was fixed.
A bug where blocking a player model in a condo would cause all workshop models in the condo to unload was fixed.
Leaving a seat will now reset the player’s camera to its view before sitting in the seat.
The third person camera is now better placed with the player’s head while in a seat, and adjusts with potions/small models.
The player will now be prompted if they wish to return to the Game Worlds Ports if a Game World closes unexpectedly.

The February 2021 condo contest has finished! Congratulations to “twitch.tv_caat96” and “Snuffles” in 1st place, along with “No4Delirious” and “Mementomori_Mohalovi” for their 2nd and 3rd place wins. You can view all the condo submissions 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.
