Hello all, and a big welcome to all the new players – who probably almost outnumber the old players reading this at this point. It’s been… quite the month.
To the newly initiated: we do a dev blog every two weeks, and we call them ‘Thursdoids’. These are often interspersed with mod blogs on particular community heroes on the off weeks.
We generally only talk about the more imminent features in the development blog these days, but clearly occasionally set out wider plans – as we did in last time’s Thursdoid blockbuster.
This blog, however, is not a blockbuster we’re afraid – as it is predominantly us working on the upcoming 41.66 patch which contains many and varied vital and more pleasant improvements to our current MP release. (With a few other bits of fun and balance in-between.)
There’s no solid ETA on this patch, but we’re now limiting further additions and are within the testing process.
Once we’re happy with it, we will put it out on an unstable beta branch for the community to try out, before moving it into the mainline after the necessary fixes have been mixed in.
Current contents include:
Elsewhere we’ve had lots of meetings and chats this week about where we’re going forward over the next months (and, in some instances, years) between ourselves and our partners, and it’s been an exciting time.
Some of the team are moving onto the next major build(s) at this point, while others are remaining on the upkeep and polish of the current version. We should have a more gameplay-y and feature-y update for you next time round, as well as news on our ongoing MP improvements and optimizations.
Thanks all! See you next time.
This week’s chill vibes from Adres4t. A changelist of all our pre-release patches since the 41 beta began can be found here. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send you update notifications once builds get released. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too!
