10/9/15 – Update v5.8 Custom Bags, Steam Controller Support, & 2D Portraits!

In this update, we bring you Custom Bags! You can now turn any custom object into a bag and it will work just like the default loot bag in game.

We also added 2D portraits, which will take your Steam avatar and turn it into a portrait behind your name at the table, so it’s almost like you’re sitting there!

Remember those Jigsaw Puzzles? We added the ability for you to remove the image off the table, so unless you need a little extra help, there’s no need to use it.

We forgot to mention this in the last update, but for grid improvements, you can now change snapping to be to the line, center, or both in the grid menu!

**Note** Keybinds have been reset!

Custom Bags/Containers

  • You can now set any custom object as a bag.
  • Right click on an existing object and click custom and choose the ‘bag’ option.
  • Or choose the ‘bag’ option when importing your custom model.

2D Portraits

  • Your Steam avatar is now used as a 2D portrait in game.
  • This simulates more of a “playing around the table” atmosphere.
