9/11/15 – Update v5.6 New Vector Drawing Tool, Updated Contextual Menu, & Jigsaw Puzzle Improvements!

With the additions of many new features and hotkeys, the contextual menu was starting to get cluttered, so we decided to redo it! It’s now cleaner, easier to manage and look at, and something a lot of you would be more familiar with. We can also easily add more features to it.

You guys have wanted a better drawing tool, and not only have we done that, we’ve given you the option to choose which one you’d like to use! We’ve added in a Vector drawing tool, with precise lines AND you can actually use the Vector tool to draw on objects! So you can now choose between the old “Pixel” or new “Vector” drawing tools. Please note that the Vector tool is in beta, so there will be improvements and may be some things we’ll add to it in the future.

Tabletop Simulator is 50% off, our biggest discount yet on The Humble Store’s Encore Sale! So if you’ve been thinking about it, now’s your chance (individual copy only). Sale ends on Monday Sept 14th at 10am PST.
