Hey everyone! Welcome to Devlog #07!
What We Are Working On
With the introduction of the recent content update, we will next be focusing on improving the core experience. Here are a few of the things that we have been working on.
How Is The Weather Today?
Eagle-eyed players might have noticed weather effects in the Early Access trailer… These weren’t just for show and we are currently working on the introduction of the first weather system to Foundation. Of course, we like to tease a little, so you might be interested to know that weather won’t be purely aesthetic!
We have previously mentioned that we are working on an updated mission system for the Kingdom Estate. We will be looking at this for a future update but we have started work on the concept art for soldier levels.
As we add more production chains through development we will need to constantly update balancing in the game. There is still much more balancing to do and it will need continuous tweaking during development. For this end, we are working on an internal tracking tool for the cost per resource, which will help us for future balancing of the game.
It’s All In The Detail
The level of detail in Foundation (call us biased if you like) is already quite incredible but we are striving to always increase the level of immersion. We are currently working to improve and increase this with more detailed and varied construction steps.
Bug Fixes and Patch
New updates do, of course, inevitably bring with them new bugs. The community have been feeding back to us any issues created by the last content update and we are currently in the process of preparing a new patch for release in the next few days. We will announce more details and changelog once the patch is ready for distribution.
Part of the recent update introduced many new modding features, including the possibility for modders to create their own monuments. The modding community have risen to the occasion and have themselves been working hard on new mods since the update. Check out this creation from Paddy Fitzgerald using the new ‘Stone Gate Set’ mod by vjraymon
If you have created a mod for Foundation in a previous version please don’t forget to update your mod and change it’s status to ‘public’ for the newly released update.
We hope everyone is enjoying the new Wine update! Feedback has been very good and the community have been sharing their creations on Discord. These screenshots from Milinia and SLy particularly caught our eye!
Thanks for checking out this weeks’ devlog and we shall see you soon for more news on development.
