Update v9.7 The Great Dinosaur Rush DLC, Voice Chat Revamp & Character Sheets!

We’ve been working on a lot of stuff these past few weeks to finally use Steam networking. We’ve got a great head start by converting our old voice chat over to Steam Voice, so you’ll see a great improvement! We’re still working on the full conversion, so let us know what you think thus far.

So many of you have been asking for the ability to create character sheets since nearly the beginning and it hasn’t been easy to come up with something that was feasible, but now we have! Through scripting – createInput(), you can now create your own custom character sheets.

The Great Dinosaur Rush by Ape Games is now in Tabletop Simulator as DLC!

The Great Dinosaur Rush, or the Bone Wars as they’re otherwise called, were a period of incredible advancement in paleontology (discovery of fossils).
