Hey Everyone and happy holidays!
It's been just over a month since we did a blog post so this one is going to be a long one!😄
Development wise it's been a great month for us and our team we've got a lot of work done and expanded our development team by a few members, along with our staff team (hint: you can apply on our forums 👀)!
While we aren't ready to announce a release date yet we are confident we will release the server in the first quarter of 2022 (January - March)
We are nearly ready to announce our closed beta which a few lucky players will be able to jump online with the staff team and try out the games, cosmetics and find bugs, and who knows maybe we will even reward players who find bugs 😎
Depending on how well our closed beta goes we will most likely announce our release date shortly after 😉
Enough of that let's get into some of the changes we've made and new features we added!
Master Allocator Updates
We touched on our new cloud deployment system in our last development blog which was named the "Master Allocator". Over the last month Matt/masecla22 has been hard at work improving the stability and efficiency of the allocator, and currently it should perform overall a lot better than when we made our last dev blog.
There have also been some building changes in the hub which can be seen in the sneak peeks channel in our discord server (discord.gg/randomcraft). We've also added some new exciting maps to our minigames which you will be able to see soon😄
We've also developed a completely new friends and party system so you and your friends can add each other, send messages over the entire network, and party up and play our games together with ease!
Yes! We have pet's as of writing we have just under a hundred pets available, this number will be lowered for the official release and released over time but most of them will be available during the closed beta 🤩
With our purchasable features being mostly cosmetics or ways to access better cosmetics we try to make unique and fun cosmetics that the community will enjoy and the already made cosmetics that will be available upon release is just a small sample of what is to come 😮
This is our favorite feature so far, We've developed an extensive private games option where almost everything is changeable and giving the players almost ultimate control over their game, these games will of course not be counted towards stats but who cares, when you can transform bedwars or other gamemodes on the server into a completely different game! 🥳
That's it for this development blog, keep an eye on the discord or the website to see the closed beta announcement and how to join!
Stay tuned for the next blog where we will reveal more!
