12/04/15 – The Scoop #9 – Latest DLC News and Updates!

Welcome to The Scoop, our regular community update for Tabletop Simulator and Berserk Games!

Dev Chat

Happy Holidays! Can you believe how fast this year has flown. It’s amazing how far Tabletop Simulator has come since the initial Early Access phase in 2014, to our big launch in June 2015, til’ now! We’re looking forward to seeing what’s to come in 2016!

Our last Update v6.0 was a big one as promised which included the new DLC Euphoria, the 1st expansion to Cosmic Encounter – Incursion and The Orange Deck for Superfight! In addition, the update added in Custom Hand Placements – where you can move the seat colors around to wherever you want, Rotation Snap Points – where you can have objects snap turn a specific way when you place them down, a new Text Tool – where you can write text on locked objects, and just a lot of improvements in general. We also added in Infinite Bags – so you can place on object in and only that one object will continually come out of it until you reset it and add in a different object.

In Update v6.1, we expanded on the Infinite Bags, so you can now take any custom object and turn them into your own Infinite Containers! This update also included an experimental “Fast Loading Mods”. To enable fast loading mods, type /threading in chat. What you’ll see is a drastic change in how the mods load. You can also move your camera around while it’s loading. This currently only works on Windows and Linux and we hope to get it working for Mac as soon as possible!

We’ve got one more update coming before the end of the year, so you can look forward to some more improvements and features before the holiday break!


DLC News

If you missed it, we recently announced our partnership with Victory Point Games and NSKN Games and we’re excited to be bringing their games to Tabletop Simulator as official DLC! We don’t have an official release date yet, but you can expect to see them by the end of the year or early 2016. Both of these games will be our first DLCs that you can play solo, so we’re very excited about that!

Darkest Night by Victory Point Games!
1-4 Players | Ages 13 & Up
~2.5 hours
Defeat the Necromancer and save the kingdom in this one to four player cooperative fantasy game, Darkest Night.
The Darkest Night DLC will also include the optional 1st expansion With an Inner Light.

Mistfall by NSKN Games!

Future Updates

official forums. Here’s a teaser of what we’ll be working on for future updates.

  • Custom tiles – Different from the custom tokens, you’ll be able to create custom square, hex or round shaped tiles!
  • Notebook – The notepad will be joined with the new “rules” window. If you still want some “real-time” notes on screen, that will be a separate on-screen entity.
  • Double-sided tokens – Not just for tokens, but also the new tiles and figurines as well! This has been wanted for quite awhile, so we’re happy this is finally coming to pass.
