03/24/2017 – Update v8.9 New DLC – Xia: Legends of a Drift System, Cosmic Encounter expansion, Dominion, & Lots of Improvements!

This update focused on a lot of behind the scenes stuff that will really help the way we test and release patches in the future.

We’re also looking into getting Tabletop Simulator upgraded to 64 bit as only .8% of our player base is on 32 bit. We will not be offering both, so once we upgrade to 64 bit, we will phase out 32 bit support. So if you are on a 32 bit OS we recommend looking to upgrade.

There is still a lot of work to getting Tabletop Simulator 64 bit, but the advantages of using more than ~3 gigs of ram will greatly improve the game’s stability and allow you guys to be more creative with your mods.
