Weekly Dev Log for September 12th, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for September 12th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since September 6th, 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.

Casino: Phase 2

We’re continuing to fix various bugs identified during the public beta test.

@macdguy continued working on bug fixes, fixing issues in Roulette where chips wouldn’t clear, games issuing incorrect payouts, HUD optimizations, etc.

@Sketchman continued working on bug fixes, working on fixing issues with the backend systems.

Little Crusaders: Cardboard Castle WIP

@Lifeless started working on a new Little Crusaders map, Cardboard Castle.

Virus: Subway Level Design Changes

@Lifeless worked on level design changes for Virus: Subway. The ticket gates are now wider, with obvious indicators. Several areas of the map were cordoned off to make it smaller, and to prevent camping. There also is now visual blockers in one of the longer corridors.

Miscellany

@Johanna worked on a bunch of optimizations in the Arcade, massively reducing the amount of drawcalls. This means that the game will be able to render everything on the screen much more quickly and efficiently, increasing performance in the arcade.

@Wheezwer continued working on concept art for Plaza NPCs.

@Will continued working on music for SDNL.

Hype for the maps, but is The Inn still being worked on?

I do plan to return to it at some point, Cardboard Castle had a very short turn around time thanks to the fact that I had 90% of the assets already (and the sudden motivation)
