We’d like to take this time to thank all our backers who believed in us more than 6 months ago! All keys for the last of the Kickstarter rewards have been sent out to our backers and the credits in game have been updated.
We have an awesome update this week as we recreated the server browser to match the UI, as well as overhauled it for ease of use. In addition, we now have our version of Fog of War (hidden areas) added to the game. This has been a requested feature for quite some time and we’re glad to get it implemented for you al!
We created another new feature request thread on our sub-reddit for future updates, so please be sure to post what feature you would like next and upvote your favorites (one feature request per post please).

- Hold ‘H’ and ‘left click’ to drag out the box area with your mouse.
- The color of the fog corresponds to who can see inside the area.
- Right click on the fog to change its color, holding ‘H’ will make the fog be first choice.
- The grey color functions as a hidden area that no one can see inside.
- Board objects will not be hidden like other objects.
- Fog areas will be saved into the game’s state.
- Hold ‘H’ then ‘left click’ on the fog box to delete it.
- While holding ‘H’ a mini fog box will be at the end of your pointer let you know.
- Hosts can disable clients from being able to create or edit Hidden Areas in the host options.

Server Browser Overhaul:
- Server browser has been remade with the new UI system with many more features.

- LAN tab has been added making it very easy to connect to servers on local network.
- Friends tab will show servers that your friends are hosting or connected to.

Mod Loading Improvements:
