From the Desks of Temujin Calidius and Drakkhis
Hello, SL Colonies Community!
We’re excited to share a sneak peek into the ongoing development of our Brewery System, particularly the much-anticipated Mash Tun update. This diary entry is a glimpse into the collaborative efforts of our team, showcasing the dedication behind enhancing your gaming experience.
The Mash Tun Update: A Closer Look
The Mash Tun, a critical component of our Brewery System, is undergoing significant updates to enhance realism and player interaction. Our recent conversation, between myself, Temujin Calidius, and our developer, Drakkhis, delved into the intricacies of these improvements.
- Stages of Brewing: The update involves four main stages – mashing, fermenting, distilling, and aging, each with its unique station, allowing players to craft their brews with greater depth and realism.
- Enhanced Interactivity: Players can now interact with each stage, adding specific ingredients to influence the outcome of their brews. This includes the introduction of new brewing enzymes and an update to our database to include stats like starch content in foods.
- New Features: We’re introducing a bottling station where players can customize their bottles, from cork designs to label personalization. Plus, we’re adding a variety of barrel types to the carpentry, allowing for different wood types to affect the brew’s stats.
Troubleshooting and Refinements:
Our chat transcript reveals the meticulous process of troubleshooting and refining the system. From addressing capitalization issues in ingredient names to enhancing the user interface, every detail is being fine-tuned. We’re also implementing a new warning message system and fixing minor bugs to ensure a seamless brewing experience.
- Update Rollout: We’re exploring the best methods to roll out these updates, ensuring all players can easily access the new features.
- Safety and Efficiency: The safety and efficiency of the update process are paramount. We’re working on a new Update Station to facilitate a smooth transition to the updated system.
As always, your feedback is invaluable. We encourage you to share your thoughts on these updates. Plus, stay tuned for a patron-exclusive video showcasing the new Mash Tun process – a testament to our commitment to community engagement and transparency.
The journey of enhancing SL Colonies is an ongoing adventure, filled with challenges and triumphs. Our conversation is just a small part of the larger narrative of our commitment to creating an immersive and enjoyable virtual world. We thank you for being part of this journey and look forward to bringing you more updates soon.
