Weekly Dev Log for October 5th, 2020

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for October 5th, 2020, detailing all the changes that have happened since September 28th, 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.

Update 0.12.0.0

Last week, we released Update 0.12.0.0, containing Co-op condos, which allow a condo owner to authorize their friends to help them build their condo. Co-op condos contain a permissions system, allowing the condo host to specify what actions an individual is allowed to perform. You can read more about Update 0.12.0.0 here.

Hotfix 0.12.0.1

Last week, we also released Hotfix 0.12.0.1, which fixed some issues with the 0.12.0.0 update, as well as a couple minor changes. You can read more about the hotfix here.

This month, we’re running a spooky, Halloween-themed Condo Contest! This contest ends at 11:59 PM PST on October 31st, 2020. Winner takes home 1,000,000 units! You can read more about the contest, as well as rules for Co-op condo submissions here.

This all looks so amazing! The moon pet might be my new favorite thing in the game, I’m very excited for Halloween this year. Nahnia concept looks great as well, can’t wait to see it come to life. Shooting gallery looks fantastic too, pretty excited about more arcade stuff (especially the dark ride, maybe you guys can dress it up next Halloween)

This all looks awesome, super excited for the Bat pet! I like the Webkinz/Animal Crossing-esque Holiday Furniture (Pumpkins, Hearts, Shamrocks, etc).

Will there be tentacles to go along with that eyestalk? I’d love to build a Pit-beast for my condo! And are those Coffins closeable like the lockers?
