As we discussed and showed in our stream on June 1st, our plan was to release an update this week containing a number of visual, AI, and performance improvements. However, this update was dependent on QA and testing, and as of today the build is not quite ready to go out. The changes in this update include core technical engine improvements, so we need a bit more time to polish them up. The good news is you won’t have to wait long – the patch is now scheduled to go live no later than next week, pending QA approval!
That said, we wanted to tease some of the cool stuff you’ll see next week! The biggest and most noticeable change will be our brand-new skybox, shown in the screenshot below and prior stream:
Not only did we add gorgeous new sunsets and sunrises, we also completely revamped the skybox, meaning that both daytime and nighttime effects are vastly improved. This profoundly effects the entire look and feel of the game during all times of day. We hope you like it as much as we do!
On top of that, this coming update will include an Alpha/First Stage Version of Staff Heat-Maps and a Mass Delete tool! It’s a package of really significant upgrades, and we are super excited to get it out as soon as we can!
See you next week! Thank you for all the support!
