    Challenges? check

    CTF? check

    What are we working on next?

    Of course:

    • tweaking gameplay
    • fixing bugs
    • making the game run faster
    • adding new maps

    But you know us? We have fire in our bellies and can’t just stop. The major things you should expect this week are:

    • Mod downloading
      This means any mod used by the server in the Mods folder and specified in mods.cfg will be automatically downloaded for everyone on joining the server. Awesome! We are doing this in a no bullshit manner. I’m just providing file download functionality and the rest is handled by you, humble server owners, mod makers and players.
    • Faster patcher
      We all know autoupdating is too god damn slooow. Geti fixed this by making the patcher threaded. There’s still a bug that needs fixing but should be ready along with mod downloading (which is nearly done, just needs testing)
    • Steam integration
      We are heading full force towards the biggest milestone - launching KAG on Steam. Existing players will be able to launch KAG from Steam and automatically login and bind their existing accounts. New Steam customers will be able to join the game in the same manner from Steam without the need of creating an account on kag2d.com
    • Steam launchThis will happen next month.
    • Zombies?We (main devs) aren’t directly creating this. I can say they are coming along. The sprites are already done by Geti and they look sweet. Zombies should come in some way or the other after the Steam launch.

    Have fun!

    SO being on Steam, is that just for more publicity? Does it add anything significant?

    Once you launch on Steam is it still "King Arthur's Gold Beta"? If it is, will it be classified as Early Access on Steam?

    That's the first time I've seen "pleb" outside of moo. Huh.
    The most exciting thing on that list is the mod downloader. With the added member count from steam, I'm expecting to see a lot of diversity in KAG servers and that's going to be super cool to see and play.
