New: Racetrack Gallery, Cloud Prop, and More!
Race fans get ready to make your dream track, as the v20.40 updates add 11 new galleries! Within the galleries, they feature 9 Racetrack Galleries featuring straightaways, turns, and guard rail props.
While checking out the new race track galleries make sure to take some cover in the shade with the Cloud Prop! Previously, creators would need to use snow and other props to create a cloud. We’ve taken the feedback and now you can place nice fluffy clouds to add to any map! Primitives Shapes Gallery B featuring 16 new materials for creations have arrived for your use. The only limit with these is your imagination.
Update: Promotion of Islands with XP enabled
In order to maintain a fair and consistent experience as part of our Discover experience, we're updating our policy on the in-game promotion of Islands with XP enabled. Mentioning XP in images, trailers, and the Island description can be misleading and will be disallowed; however, using the XP tag is still completely fine!
For new or updated Islands, please ensure your Island assets correctly reflect the experience your map provides.
Note: The policy blog has not yet been updated to reflect this change.
Other Updates and changes
- You can now turn on/off sliding on a per team/class basis.
- New options have been added that allow creators to change how Overshield and Sprinting function.
These can be accessed by setting “Overshield: More Options” and “Sprinting: More Options” to SHOW. These changes are in the Class Designer and Team Settings and Inventory Devices. Users can also use the My Island Game tab settings to set the Overshield and Sprinting options.
- New media has been added to the Video Player. You will now have the option to use the “Party Royale Mix” in the Video Player in addition to the six available music videos created by xDogged.
