Multiplayer Update!
over 3 years ago – Sat, Apr 13, 2019 at 11:30:26 PM

Version 1.0.8o is live!

.

We have spent the last couple weeks really focusing on the multiplayer bugs and performance and after hours of testing we're glad to say it's looking great!! 

Huge Thank You to our Beta Testers and everyone that has submitted a bug or provided feedback, being such a small team we really appreciate all your support. It's been a ton of fun playing this game with the community and hanging out in Discord

.

 Patch Notes

  • Multiplayer middleware was changed to Photon Bolt. With this change the multiplayer is faster more stable and disconnects are less likely to happen.
  • Now if disconnects happen the game tries to reconnect, and if successful you can keep playing with your friends right from where you left off.
  • Loading and saving have been optimized. Loading times are now considerably faster.
  • Halloween Island is now accessible on multiplayer.
  • Several multiplayer issues have been solved
  • Coal drops have been increased to 3-8.
  • Sprinkler radius have been increased slightly.
  • Glider speed has been slightly increased.

.

While Dan has been working on the multiplayer, Kristina has been writing quests galore as well as working on some new items. The next update we will be working on adding over 50 quests as well as the Spring Festival! This update will also come this month in time for Easter.

The Spring Festival will have an Easter Egg hunt, tons of new items and more! We'll share more on that soon.

.

 If you've caught our streams or have seen us in Discord you might already know that we started working on a HUGE new area. This area will feature 2 towns with quite a few surprises. Did someone say new mounts? ;)

.

 Without giving too many spoilers all we can say for now is we're very excited to start adding some epic content to Garden Paws

We've been having a ton of fun streaming, if you'd like to catch some spoilers or just hang out with devs Dan and Kristina you can find us on twitch at BittenToastGames.

There's quite a bit in this update so we're going to try to keep this short and sweet. 

Sooo let's address the multiplayer bugs first. Multiplayer is our main focus for the next large update. Dan (our programmer) will be replacing the multiplayer middleware. This means a complete revamp of the multiplayer code. As we are just a small team of 3 (Daniel, Kristina and Thiago), please bear with us as we get the multiplayer patched up we definitely want this feature to be as smooth as possible.

Horse Playable!

The horse playable character has been added. (Thanks to one of our Kickstarter Designer Backers!) 

There's also a horse mount and stable to match. You can also ride many of the larger farm animals including the sheep, alpacas and cows!

Assistant

There's an assistant! You can now hire an assistant to run your shop, for a % of the sales that is. The assistant is available from Day 1 and can be found in the main town, Florens.

Like Splash and their epic sales tactics, the assistant will rotate between all the characters and skins each day!

Multiplayer Update

This past update we have been heavily focusing on optimization and we're glad to say we've made some improvements. Not only that but we've been working on some bugs. With just a small team of 3, Multiplayer is definitely a big task, but our programmer Daniel has been hard at work on it, and we appreciate your patience and this incredible community as we get it perfect.

While Dan is working on the multiplayer side of things, Kristina has been working on new content and Thiago has been getting the soundtrack together which was just sent out. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Next month we'll continue focusing on Multiplayer as we will be completely move the servers to a new host. Don't worry we'll have an update before we dive into that fill with items like the Crystal Furniture set.

Being a small team of two developers and a composer is definitely a ton of work but we're really proud of how far Garden Paws has come in the last few months and are excited for 2019! To start it off we have a huge content update!

A lot of new items have been added!

Controller Support

Implementing the full controller support has been a huge priority for us and we're glad to say it's fully implemented in-game. The main menu is the only area it's not 100% in yet, and Dan will be working on this over the next couple days.

Sprinklers

We heard the community and have added sprinklers. They come in 3 tiers, Copper, Silver and Gold.

We've heard you might want to get rid of all those insects and other items quickly and at a discount. With that, we've added the Discount Bin! Any items you place in the discount bin will sell for half price at the end of the day, this item is upgradeable with Frank.

Tables are overflowing? Put your extra stock for sale on the discount bin!

Other Notes:

Minorimprovementstowards the optimization, the February update will be heavily focussed on optimizing the game as well as improving multiplayer.

We've seen a relatively frequent problem arise with connection issues that has usually been resolved by disabling firewalls or switching who hosts the lobby. If you have any problems with multiplayer please contact Dan or Kristina, (the two devs), and we'll be happy to help.

You can contact us through Discord: https://discord.gg/QXseXfR
 or email (Admin@BittenToast.com)

The map has been updated with the new islands, a sound has been added when you take a screenshot with F8, and many more small fixes are in this update.

The Next Update

We will be doing a small patch in a couple days, after that we'll be doing a heavy optimization update. This update will be focused around improving multiplayer and overall performance. As much as we'd like to do another huge content update, we feel this is more important at this stage.

As our only programmer, Dan will be mainly focussing on optimization for February. Kristina, (the other dev), will be working on the Creative Mode and a new shop that will sell all your Landscaping needs. Thiago, (our composer), will be, and has been working on the seasonal music as well as compiling the soundtrack for it's release.

We hope you've been enjoying Garden Paws, and again Thank you for all your support! Every positive tweet, review, and comment means the world to us!
