It’s been a while since our last blog! We’ve been working towards the first release candidate and we are entering regression testing this week. We hope to have the release ready within a couple of weeks.
The majority of the changes from the last beta version will be fixing issues, finishing functionality that was partially complete, and improving existing functionality (and performance) as we get Other World Mapper to a stable first release.
Some of the changes that will come with the release candidate include:
We are bringing back the river delta option that was disabled with the previous release. We weren’t happy with how it originally worked so we redid it. For now it has a limited number of tool options but we’ll add more with future updates.
We added more options for shapes of buildings and we added directional shading to the roof .
Added Wall Towers for City Walls
You may have noticed the button on the toolbar with Beta 6. In this upcoming release the Wall Towers tool will be working.
Some more artwork will be going into the next release as well and more presets to match the new tools and recent artwork.
We’re also updating the help document with the changes from the Beta 6 release and current release.
