At the studio, we have just released the second update that players can activate in their player page if they want. Combined, you have an improved support for custom car model, no waiting time for official attempt at launch if you have previously launched the game since more than five minute off course, a restart after updates and various optimisations, stability issues and compatibility questions. The update will be pushed soon to all players. (…)
And if you have this update, you can discover a plug in of map generator that we just released in the forum (…)
We are also working on some new blocs for Canyon. We could have improved the current collection here or there, but we have chosed to focus on one set of blocs in an already existing theme. So, it will be less interesting for combinations but should bring something to the feelings divertity of the environment.
One of our big topic at the moment is the economical system. Within two weeks, we should have switched on the economical ladder as well as the economical balancing system that transform some planets into economical points in order to stabilize the economy and the inflation. Starting from there, we will be able to reward with planets audiences for manialink and servers.
