Extinction Developer Toolkit Update
So fun fact- last Tuesday happened to be the 3 year anniversary of the Extinction Development Toolkit’s…….last update. Before now, it was difficult to cook and put up an editor build. The difference in content between the editor and live game caused problems so this was far from ideal. This problem is now fixed and we are able to keep the two updated at the same time.
We’ve been absolutely blown away by what the Primal Community has done with the tools. Some of what we’ve seen come out of Workshop is higher quality than what we’ve able to produce…although you’d never hear us say that out loud.
We want to see more. And we’re dedicated to helping anyone willing to give it a shot. Keep an eye out for some more tutorials and prefab content to help speed up your workflow. If you have any questions or interest in showing off your work you can ping @Apoc and @dinosauriac in the #ExtinctionEditor section of our Discord. They’ll answer. Or else!
Besides that, we’re also looking into hosting a few community contests, with Workshop maps and skins being the most likely categories. So if that interests you, don’t wait until the last minute to start learning!
Map Stamps: Are They Working?
We wanted to let everyone know that Map Stamps have been very popular! For those of you that haven’t heard of these yet, each Community Workshop map we’ve implemented into the game comes with it’s own Stamp. The creator of the map gets 66% of all Stamp revenue and those who purchase a stamps get a special item. Stamps provide a way to give something back to the creators for their hard work, similar to the system for Workshop skin authors.
We’re always on the lookout for more candidates for the Map Stamp system, so if you have a concept you’ve been working on but haven’t posted it…don’t hesitate! We really do want to see it.
Extinction Store Feature – Turkey Week
With Spitter Week coming to a close, we now give attention to long time fan favorite Turkey class with Turkey Week! If it’s an Oviraptor or a Novaraptor with feathers on it, this week we’re calling it a Turkey. And for humans players- it’s open season on these guys. Especially for any hunter looking to catch a new exciting type of Turkey:
An Oviraptor!? With quills? This genetic experiment was clearly the work of a genius or someone pure evil.
We have three Oviraptors, an Ovi bundle, and two Feathered Novaraptors for this weeks featured lineup. Along with that we’re also cycling out several items that have been in for a few weeks for some brand new ones. What new ones? Check out the store and see for yourself!
Stay tuned for more information on what we’ll be planning in December. In the meantime, Happy Thanskgiving!
