    Streaming Suggestions

    Hey there Ylanders! As I mentioned in Dev Diary #149, we'd love to hear, what you would like to see in future streams, so I set up this thread, so we can talk about the contents of the streams ๐Ÿ˜Š I myself am very new to streaming, though I did do radio shows before etc. so I'm not sure, if the quality will be top-notch right from the start, but I will try ๐Ÿ˜ But most importantly I'd love to cover things, that you are interested in as well as news and new features that are coming or are newly in the game. So would you like me checking out the different games, that are in the workshop as I have done before? If it was more of an FAQ or that I have a lot of guests? Or is there something else you'd like to see ๐Ÿ˜Š Also any suggestions as for quality/format and anything else would also be much appreciated ๐Ÿ˜‰ Put your suggestion below ๐Ÿ˜

    My Last (official) Post

    Hey there Ylanders! So this is it. My last (1966th) post ๐Ÿ˜Š As was mentioned (maybe too many times) already, I am leaving Ylands for new adventures, but I do so with a heavy heart. It's been nearly two years that I have spent with y'all and I don't know about you, but I had an absolute blast. Also, I have learnt a lot, which gave me the confidence to move on when the call came. So thank you for that and for all the fun we had in the process. This game and this community are truly something special. With such an interesting mix of adventurers and creators, there is always something new to talk about, try out and figure out. Of course, the road hasn't been always easy, but I think Ylands is now on the way to becoming really great. With the recent updates to Exploration (which are really awesome and I think we all really enjoyed them, even on the recent streams ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) and the competitions showing us all, what amazing feats are possible in the Editor, there is a bright future ahead of the game. And I for one am really looking forward to it. And I am also proud of what we have managed as a community. When I started at Ylands, there was a bit of a disconnect, that I think we managed to bridge together, especially because of a ton of goodwill from you ๐Ÿค— And while it may not be readily apparent or immediately seen, all your feedback and bug reports were essential in the last two years and the way Exploration and other aspects of the game developed is in a huge part because of your ideas and requests, so thank you for that. I also think quite a lot of life was breathed into our Forums and especially the Discord (https://discord.gg/KxQJJAY), which when I began was kinda quiet and now I am delighted, how much you guys chat there and share screenshots. So thank you all again very much. Thank you for being so welcoming and kind. Thank you for all the private messages wishing me a bright future and I wish you all also the very best. But most of all I wish you all to stay classy as you've always been Ylanders ๐Ÿ˜Š Adam "Major General" Snellgrove T P.S. Thank you @Spyler.X and @Christal for the beautiful artwork and all of you, that helped out to build the Major General a retirement home. And the Pub is fantastic too, thank you @cfrox

    Not sure I'll have a lot of time to do so and also I don't have the required equipment, but I'd love to stream something in the future. Might be a mix of Ylands and other stuff, but will let you all know if that ever happens ๐Ÿ˜Š

    RESOLVED incompatible game version

    So it seems it is because the host of the game you are trying to connect to is still running an older version of the game @kimbuck so please tell the owner of P1 HOME PART to update their game and then it should work fine.

    RESOLVED incompatible game version

    We are looking into it, but in the meantime, maybe just reinstalling the game? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    1.5: Enhancing Exploration

    Highlights New experimental Exploration In 1.5 we begin a transition to a new, different Exploration. Instead of many Exploration games, we give you a large Exploration world to travel. Please note that we think of this new Exploration as "Early access" as it will be finalized in 1.6. If you feel like waiting for a polished, finished product, you can keep playing the original (legacy) Exploration. Custom bitmap import Creators can now import their own images to be used as game UI (panels, buttons, icons...) or even in custom particles. Please note that all custom bitmaps are checked before the game is made visible on Workshop. Improved profile page We've improved the profile page (accessible by clicking character portrait in the Main menu). See your favorite games, your friends' Avatars or their friends. Optimizations We've added further optimizations - especially owners of lower spec mobile devices should experience noticeable improvement. Scripting modules You wanted an easier way to re-use your code in various game scenes or share with others ... and we answered. Dynamic lights visible on mobile devices We keep tirelessly working so that your mobile gaming experience is as close to PC as possible. Light Game Logic object Maybe your scene would look better with one or two dynamic lights to set the mood? Weather effects visible on lower spec mobile devices Now you can experience Ylands' weather even with less powerful mobile devices! Mobile controls Editor preview Are you making a game to be played with mobile devices? Now you can check what the control will look like when testing the game on PC. Bow-shooting and grenade-throwing enhancements We rewrote a lot of code so that these are now better controlled and much more fun. Be sure to give them a try! Visual scripting fixes and improvements Another batch of fixes and improvements that will make it easier for you to create great games. Terrain roughen tool Making a natural-looking terrain is so much easier with this new tool. Native American assets With these assets, we give you yet another great setting/era where you can set your game. Controlling the non-player object Two new instructions have been added: Get Horizontal Input / Get Vertical Input, which will return player X / Y controller input. They can be used in new Event Listener event - On Fixed Update to "animate" any object as if controlling the player. Please note that this feature currently works for SP games only. New assets Totem Golem monster Native decorative blocks Stone doors (3x) Native melee weapons (4) Native ranged weapons (3) Stone furniture Native Clothes (Chieftain hat, Shaman set, Sunplate armor set) Wendigo totem Rugby ball Soccer ball Basketball Flat basic shapes (show now seams when connected) Additions / Tweaks [YLD-26202] Added: Editor: "Create game logic" button inside object properties window for each Game logic reference there.

    Tencent becomes minority investor

    Nothing really. As the agreement stands, total control of Bohemia Interactive is to stay with the current administration. We may see more support to our developers within the company in the future though since Tencent is going to release their version of Ylands soon in China and so far it has been testing well in the eastern market, so that might be nice ๐Ÿ˜Š But yeah, nothing really changes for us here ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  17. So this is a mistake and we will fix it ๐Ÿ˜Š
