02/20/2015 – Update v4.0 In game Tablet, Saved objects folders, & Connection Improvements!

As always, we’ve got some exciting stuff for you guys. Most importantly, we are bringing the ultimate sandbox tool into Tabletop Simulator this patch… the internet. Yep, you can now browse the web, watch YouTube videos, listen to music, create/edit character sheets, and all kinds of things within Tabletop Simulator’s own little Tablet. Please note that the Tablet is currently in Alpha.

We also added the much requested saved objects folders and worked really hard to get connection issues working properly.
