Weekly Dev Log for October 15th, 2018

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for the week of October 15th, 2018. Here’s what everyone was up to last week! 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.

0.6.1.0 and 0.6.1.1 Released

Over the past week, we released the Gizmo update (0.6.1.0) and the hotfix (0.6.1.1). There was also a couple small unannounced patches to 0.6.1.1 that fixed a few crashes.

Well, that came out of nowhere.

distant cliche war flashback noises are heard

Content like the Tele-Punch is what lets me know that TU has the best dev team it could possibly have. I don’t know if there’s a language with words to describe how perfect of an addition this is. How can it get any sillier than this??


#7

ooooo yeaaaaaaaaaa


#8

There goes me thinking these items would be rare in a few years.


#9

Can’t wait to telepunch someone across my condo the second they spawn in


#10

Are you also the person who threw a shitfit when skull trooper was re-released in the item shop


#11

No?


#12

I’m way for items being brought back especially the 2017 ones as they were very very irritating to get, I just hope they aren’t TOO easy to get this year but still easier to get than last year. To avoid totally screwing over people who spent countless hours grinding for them. I just hope a better system is put in place for it. cough cough event currency/tokens cough cough


#13

Super awesome! I’m excited for the trails in mini golf, and of course, Project23


#14

can we please have a haunted version of the snail plush
basically like the crab one


#15

Spoopy snail will haunt you forever and give you love and kindness and will make you happy forever


#16

How did you even get the previous Halloween items? I’d like to know so I can prepare in advance, if possible.


#17

it’s like the metal detector event, first, you go on the beach and collect these soul things, then you go to the center of the plaza and talk to an npc, they’ll give you a reward for each soul, mostly cauldrons and eyeballs, but i think you can get a nightmare crab, a ghost pet, and maybe even other really rare stuff


#18

thanks!


#19

you’re welcome, good luck when the event starts


#20

Laser looks good, like it comes from Gmod, and I like that
