Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for May 23rd, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since May 16th, 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.

May 2022 Condo Contest Ending Soon!

The objective for this contest is to make a bedroom!

You can create the room yourself or decorate one of the rooms in any of the purchasable Condos. It can be as ambitious or simple as you like (feel free to theme it however you want), as long as it follows the rules and is understandably a bedroom.

The deadline to submit entries is May 29th, 2022 at 11:59 PM CT.

Learn how to enter this contest here.

I have waited so long for the grouper, I’m excited it is finally being worked on! :smiling_face_with_tear:


Wow, what a meaty dev log! Very excited to see this stuff. The Casino is admittedly not something I was previously hyped for but that 3D roulette betting just looks fantastic n really clean.
Frostbite coming back is a sight for sore eyes as well, and the new cover from the barrack looking buildings was definitely needed. Looks like a much more fleshed out area here : D
