    Hey folks,

    It's been a while since the last update, so we've got a rather large one for you this Halloween !

    For starters, yes, Halloween! The game has been updated with Halloween textures until the next patch after Halloween, and the yearly event script (gregs, ghosts) should automatically start somewhere tomorrow and last for approximately 8 days. Spoopy.

    Next up: Trap platforms.

    This one is pretty big: trap blocks have been removed and are replaced by trap platforms! They are inspired by trap bridges from KAG Classic (if you've been around for that long). The main difference between trap blocks and trap platforms are that you can pass through your own team's trap platforms at will, as well as the build cost move from stone to wood. All in all this should reduce (accidental) griefing and the platforms should be used more than its predecessor.

    Huh, some love to regular platforms you say? Sure, many of the quirks and glitches with platform damage, item pick-up and player teleporting should be fixed now, and the game handles rotated platforms a bit better.

    Below some other interesting changes highlighted:
    • The KAG menu are a pain in the geti to update, which is why it has never changed much. The menu has been reorganised a bit for a fresh look. Thanks Bunnie!
    • Drills have been tweaked (see full changelog for details) and flora and fauna can now regrow over time. Both thanks to TheCatWizard.
    • You now stick to trees as archer, no longer needing to furiously tap "W"
    • The Quarry, tunnels, and storages are no longer flammable
    • You gain coins from assists now

    Furthermore, long time community member Nananas has joined the KAG Team as an internal contributor to work on the KAG engine, having pushed a lot of fixes and changes he definitely deserves a shout-out! Also thanks to Nananas there are a few new bindings for modders:
    • New CCamera bindings
    • getBlobsFromTile
    • A new DrawIcon binding variant
    • RemoveFrame

    This update was made possible by people like YOU. Thank you everyone who has helped bring this update to the masses, and a big shoutout to Verra, Epsilon, TheCatWizard, Bunnie and Nananas.

    See you on the battlefield!
