Devlog Build 2731 - Maps, Bounties, Democracy, and Accolades - Something for Everyone!

    Hey Folks!

    This build has been a couple of months coming due to some finicky engine changes and a few of the bounties running long, but it should be worth it. Lets get stuck into the changes! ːkag_yesː



    There is now an accolades system in-game for recognising player contributions.

    This system not only recognises tournament wins, but also community contribution through github, moderation work, map making, or organisation. We're still working on getting these all displayed (only tournament wins are displayed currently), but we look forward to giving a little emblem to show off to everyone who has helped out in some way.

    The accolade badges currently appear in the scoreboard - the appearance of each is subject to change.


    The accolades system is also used for assigning the newly introduced tournament-won custom heads. They will still take some integration work, but this system may also be used for assigning other supporter rewards as well, so it's well worth having.

    Huge thanks to Rayne and Shy who were instrumental in implementing this system, and Bunnie for spearheading the competitive organisation and performing the data entry for each accolade!

    Dev Updates:

    This build has two months of bounties in it, as well as a lot of other community development. This includes paid bounties such as the In-Game Report system, Holidays fix, Anti-anti-grief, and item momentum on death. The bounties are pitched, voted for, and developed by the community, but funded by THD. Other community development is on a volunteer basis and very much appreciated.

    A lot of these are simple quality of life changes that should improve your experience. The Report system will be getting hooked up to discord at some point in the next month or so as well. There are a lot of minor/miscellaneous changes; check the changelog for the details and credits!

    Thanks to all the contributors!


    We've been running intermittent voting through the discord channel. If you would like to vote for bounties, help make decisions about controversial balance or map changes, and take place in other polls, then please jump on the discord and check the #democracy channel for any active votes.

    We'll be writing up a primer on the whole system soon, now that it is relatively stable.

    Map Changes:

    Some TDM Map Changes were voted on in Discord.
    • Vertigo was removed
    • Spelunca and Corruptio were added
    • GamblersDen was kept

    New Internal Contributor:

    We'd also like to publicly welcome our latest internal contributor, Vik. He will be able to help out with minor engine-side changes after developing a good track record of public contribution through github. Be sure to bother him if you need anything on discord ːkag_winkː


    That's it for this time, Have Fun!

    Lol almost every mod broke because of your new emotes change @Asu - which by the way I and many others EXTREMELY dislike :rektlord:

    Modders should revert standardcontrols.as and emotebubble.as to the older versions. Or update those scripts if modified and use the new scripts.

    Can you give a copy of those old files..? You might as well publish it to the forum KAG mod resources, also ;)
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 9, 2018, Original Post Date: Oct 9, 2018 ---
    @Geti or @Asu or @Furai (not sure who to asks) - what exactly happens (in-game and behind the scenes, aka what you deal with) when I do the in-chat reporting..? Also, can I undo the report, and what would happen if I did it to myself? I can see some people accidentally reporting others, especially with the tab function...

    EDIT: Found.

    That’s what Github is for.... You can browse the code base of any version.
    Either ask Vik who claimed the bounty and implemented it or look at the code.

    I'm sorry, but I talked to Asu, and like @Mazey said I did grab it. *I thought I edited my post before...*

    Something for everyone, except those who want a working minimap from before you broke it in build 2657
