    Dev Diary #161 - New Ship Type

  3. Hey there, fellow ylanders! Adam is enjoying his well-deserved vacation, but the Ylands machine never stops... Firstly there is a new Project Lead on the block, which happens to be Ales Ulm. Many of you probably know him - he has a long history with Ylands after all. He was there from its very beginning and even held the position of Project Lead in the past. Even though everyone is now probably extremely interested in finding out more about him and feel, that this information is what they have been subconsciously looking for their whole lives, we have more important things to discuss and I know that as soon as we release 1.4, Ales will time to present his visions to you fully. Ok, so you want to know at least something? What does his return to the Project Lead position mean for Ylands? Firstly, we immediately started fixing Exploration and making it once again about... well... exploration. And playing with friends. And sailing. And that other thing. If everything goes right, you should see the first (quite huge) change already in 1.5. and you will see that Exploration is anything but dead. Also, we will now pay significantly more attention to testing. Not only we are taking more time with it, but this week, we plan to make the first Experimental version of the game available for all. These Experimental Builds will be released roughly two weeks before a new update release. This time it will be PC Steam only, but with next major updates, other platforms will have this special version as well. If you are a creator dying to see the new features first and provide us with feedback (especially if you see something wrong with your existing game) you're more than welcome to give it a try! To find more information about this Experimental version, please follow this link There is so much more we want to talk to you about. So many plans and so many cool things happening... but we now have to fully focus on delivering 1.4 in the best shape possible. I will definitely talk to you again soon. And until then... stay classy, ylanders!

    Public Experimental Branch

    Hey there fellow Ylanders, As mentioned in a recent dev diary, we are happy to invite the curious and the brave to try our Experimental Build! Available to every Steam user, the Experimental branch will offer you a chance to: test upcoming features & changes test your games & scripts report any bugs & provide early feedback ...before the release of a big update. Please note, that each Experimental Build will only be available for a limited duration (1-2 weeks), until we release the associated update. How to try the Experimental Build go your Steam library, right click Ylands, select Properties, click the "Betas" tab and enter "ExperimentalIWillBackUpMySaves" as the password (excluding the double quotes) this will unlock the "i_will_back_up_my_saves" branch after selecting the branch and confirming it, Steam will begin downloading the new experimental branch Important information Now is a good time to very strongly urge everyone trying the experimental branch to back up all your game data (saves, scenarios, etc.). You can do that by: browsing to "<steam installation folder>/userdata/<your steam id>" copying the whole "298610" folder. Keep in mind that the experimental environment uses a completely new user database, meaning that the game will require either playing as a guest or creating a new BI account (available through a link in the game) and then creating a new Ylands character. If you leave your saves folder intact, you will be able to load your older saves and scenarios with these caveats: loading older saves will create a new character for you editing scenarios will result in the scenario having more contributors - the user from the live version and the user from the experimental version For these reasons, we very heavily WARN AGAINST using any data created/modified in the experimental branch in the live version. Also keep in mind that since experimental and live environments are completely separate, you won't be able to see your friends playing the live version in the Social tab. Now for the good part Besides being able to test (and possibly break) all the cool stuff we are adding before anyone else; all players will receive 10.000 Coyns to spend however they like (within the Experimental environment - this is not transferable to the live game). You can't buy more Coyns (it would be unfair to request money from players for features in the experimental version) all players will also receive access to the exploration mode in the experimental version (even those without the DLC) Finally, any and all creations uploaded to the experimental Workshop may get purged when the experimental phase is over, so don't get too attached to them. 🙂 Have fun with all the features Ylanders, please report any bugs or suggestions you might have - and most importantly; stay classy! -- Experimental Build for Update 1.4 changelog Feature Highlights Editor improvements Custom controls can now be shared in compositions between players and scenarios as they've been implemented as a Game Logic.

    Interview Ynterview #11 - Marci

    The plan is constructed using a highly scientific mixture of: previous experience (both personal and company-wide) industry best-practices stea...taking ideas from anywhere, where they worked a hint of outside the box thinking a good dose of good ol' gut feelings creating a bunch of KPIs and making sure every action we do, push the game towards achieving those coming up with other three-letter abbreviations using our communal tomato soup with alphabet noodles And as a rule of thumb, we always start with an initial plan and a budget and when we see how a given action is panning out we make adjustments to either that given plan real time (if it's possible - like old fashioned digital advertising) or making sure we modify the next stage / iteration of the plan if it cannot be so easily modified while it's actually running (like influencer marketing). And as an EVEN MORE general answer: we are planning to support Ylands for many years to come - so the 1.0 release - though important - is "just" another step along the way, so we are not treating it as "this is our one and only chance" situation. We'll do our best - learn from the mistakes / successes and import those into the next update What WILL change however, is that with the release of the game, community feedback and needs will be EVEN more important to us than before and will serve as the main guiding force behind an increasing number of our actions and directions with the game.
