01/13/2017 – Update v8.5 Top Down Camera, Revamped ALT Zoom & TTS Giveaway!

Happy 2017! Here’s to another great year of gaming! To celebrate the new year, we’re having a giveaway for Tabletop Simulator and its DLCs, so be sure to check that out here.

This update focuses a lot on cleaning up the UI and existing functions as we really want TTS to look nice and clean. If you come across any funny looking bugs be sure to post them on our forums.

Have suggestions for new features you’d like to see? Then post them either on our official forums or in the latest pinned thread on our sub-reddit.

New Camera Mode – Top Down

  • You can now use the new Orthographic camera.
  • This keeps the camera locked in top down 2D view.
  • This is great for games that require more of a top down view or for placing down and aligning objects perfectly.
  • Press P to toggle between the camera modes or right click on a non-object to bring up the Global Contextual Menu.

ALT Zoom Revamp

  • Orthographic camera so everything is perfectly flat and readable at any angle.
  • Improved object clipping prevention.
  • You can now see objects as they are supposed to be.
  • It will use the entire screen if it’s supposed to.
  • This now works on animated objects and the 3D UI.

UI Improvements

  • Added Spotlight section on the Main Menu for any relevant news, updates & community spotlights.
  • Updated the Main Menu and Multiplayer sections to fit with new UI.
