Weekly Dev Log for November 21st, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for November 21st, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since November 14th, 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.

November 2022 Condo Contest - ENDING SOON

Hey everyone!

This month, the Condo Contest goal will be to build on the rooftop of the default Condo!

So, the main requirement is that your build must be on the roof of the default Condo.

Beyond that, feel free to do whatever you want with the build, including any theme. It can be an enclosed space or an open area, and you can include pictures of stairways / teleport areas / etc. to get up to the build.

The submission period ends on November 29th, 2022 at 11:59 PM.

You can read all the rules and how to enter the contest here!

Dark Voyage - OUT NOW

Electronic Store NPC looks like he knows his stuff. I trust him not to upcharge me.

where are they going to put it? the only spot I can see is where the East Side of the Tower near the lighthouse

Judging from the screenshots it looks like it’s going on the side of the boardwalk nearest to the main plaza area that’s currently completely empty. You can see the floor of the other side of the boardwalk (with fresh/celebrations/etc) in the background of the milk jug and water gun game screenshots.

Absolutely adore those Boardwalk games. Thank you so much :black_heart:
