Greetings, πŸ‘‹

Hope you’re doing fantastic! The last few weeks have been a whirlwind, from implementing enchanting visual effects to improving the vehicle upgrades section; we can’t wait to show you all the good stuff.

But before we take a closer look at what’s new and why it matters to you, it’s our pleasure to introduce you to the vibrant and imaginative Hinata:

Sun Rays to Guide the Way πŸŒžπŸ’«

We’ve added sun ray VFX to show that stand spots are interactive. This beautifies the scene and subtly signals to players, seeing the environment for the first time, that they can click the spots to purchase and set up new stands.

Improved Overlay for Larger Stands 🚚

We’ve improved the night overlay for larger stands to enhance your nighttime experience when you own those stands.

Previously, the larger stand sprites were incorrectly placed over some objects at night, disrupting the overall look of the night view. The improved overlay places each element correctly, ensuring a visually coherent nighttime atmosphere.

Worker Placement Updates 🧍

A noticeable adjustment has been made to the positioning of stand employees when they’re serving customers.

Before, we had workers stationed outside all stands, regardless of context. This broke the immersion we were striving for. Now, except for the burger bike stand, you’ll find all workers properly placed inside their vehicles while serving.

Vehicle Upgrades πŸššπŸ› οΈ

Tweaking the vehicle upgrades system for better clarity and ease of use was another area we focused on.

You’ll find the names and costs of upgrades listed right beside each option, along with improved visuals in the upgrades area.

We believe these changes will simplify the planning/acquisition of your next upgrade.

We’re eager to hear what you think about these updates. Do the god rays add that touch of magic we hoped for?

And that’s a wrap for today. Cheers πŸ₯‚

Don’t forget to Wishlist the game if you haven’t!

Live Long and Prosper πŸ‘‹,
Kunal & Team
