Weekly Dev Log for September 26th, 2022
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for September 26th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since September 12th, 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.
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
Two weeks ago, we released the second phase of the Casino. We’ve been very busy fixing all of the issues that have cropped up since the release. Last week, we released a hotfix to help address these issues, and we plan on having another patch sometime this week to address even more issues.
@macdguy worked on fixing a bunch of the issues, as well as handling support tickets to grant players money that wasn’t given properly.
@Sketchman worked on stabilization fixes for issues introduced with the update.
@Johanna continued working on a bunch of optimizations in the Arcade and the Plaza. She continued reducing the amount of draw calls, while also optimizing various rotating objects.
@joshua continued working on new items for the Halloween update.
@Lifeless continued working on the new Little Crusaders map, Cardboard Castle.
@macdguy worked on some improvements to VR. He also created a track event system for the rail-shooting gallery for Halloween, making it much easier to assign events to various parts of the track.
@Madmijk worked on optimizing the rail shooting gallery track.
@Wheezwer continued working on NPC concept art, while also working on paintings for the Shooting Gallery ride.
@Will continued working on music for SDNL.
