Dev Diary #139 - New Menu

Recommended Posts

Hey there Ylanders!


It has been a while since we messed around with the Main Menu, so here we go again 😊 The Main Menu should be the gateway to everything Ylands and we wanted our new version to reflect this. While the old Menu was cool, it no longer was enough to encapsulate all the awesome games constantly popping up in the Workshop. So the main aim was to give these games much more space to live in and to get noticed because they did tend to fall between the cracks a bit in the old menu, if they weren’t featured, which is a terrible shame.


So in the new Menu, you’ll always have all kinds of different games visible to you in different categories, like Featured games (by the Ylands team) of which there can now be many more, your recently played games, your exported projects, top-rated games by the community and many more. We also have some cool new tools to promote good games and to get them to the top of your lists, so you always see the crème de la crème of Ylands creations 🤩 Games will also be categorised into different genres, so you'll be able to quickly get playing the games YOU want to play.

But that’s not all that will be changing with the menu. We are also implementing a much better communication system, so that players can message each other through Ylands and we can message players and thus be able to interact much more with our Creators and Players alike 🤗


There will be many more cool improvements in the new Menu but that’s for you Ylanders to explore for yourselves once update 1.4 drops 😁


And that’s all for today, so keep safe and stay classy Ylanders!

Good move with the menu. Makes much more sense with Ylands being a game platform. Also will help people see more than just the few featured games.

I see that there is still no obvious way to go to "Favorites", to pick from games that you favorited in the Workshop.  Why bother having the workshop for games if people can't see a connection between favoriting a game they found (using the Workshop feature that BI implemented) and getting to it from the actual main menu?  It seems like favoriting a game in the workshop is pointless.

We are implementing this feature in 1.5 😉
