Congrats to Shannon for his new baby girl!

The Center of Kaosland — Power Core
  • Collision system and physics — voxel and non-voxel collision detection have been integrated seamlessly, with better handling of edge cases. Design focused on ease of use for authors and performance for users. Users will be able to walk across voxel landscapes and up stairs provided by content creators.
  • Updated tooling
    — Asset Selector:
    — — Editing position, scale, and rotation of existing placed assets.
    — — Replacing an asset with another.
    — — Deleting an asset — replaces asset remover.
    — Linking:
    — — Allow users to teleport to a point of interest.
    — — Link to an external site.

  • Kaosland landmark 3D modeling and design for Power Core, Thunder.University, Ocean Park, and partner buildings.
Thunder University
  • Updated UI for creating new voxel themes for the world; upload custom images or create high-quality PBR textures for your voxels. Improvements to the UI system to support newer tooling features.
  • Improved animation system to blend more consistently; the animations for movement between walking and running are smoother. Updated and improved movement handling code, including transition between land and void — reduced CPU cost and improved feel.
