Weekly Dev Log for September 24th, 2018

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for the week of September 24th, 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. Progress


@Madmijk has been working on the trailer for the new update.

New Appearance UI

@macdguy has been working on an overhaul to the existing Appearance UI to take into account Workshop Models. This new UI also allows the customization of items for Games, currently just Bowling. The rotating character system was completely reworked, and the appearance editor is no longer super offset in the main menu.

New Appearance UI: Body Tab

New Appearance UI: Color Tab

New Living Lobby Player Visualization

@macdguy also created a new visualization for the Living Lobby Players.

I wonder if its drivable? or its just a prop, wish it was drivable car that would feature 4 people to sit on that vehicle that would be H Y P E D!!!


I have my new backround


It’s for a character in the new update.


Workshop will improve the game a lot. Is it possible drivable cars, bikes, quads for condos so i can build my own stunt course or gta in smooth dirt :crazy_face:


Does this mean I won’t need to spend my entire life savings to potentially get a cosmic catsack?
