Public Test of Cyberpunk / Sci-Fi

Hello everyone! 

The Cyberpunk/Sci-Fi release is now only a stone's throw away, assuming it's a very heavy stone. Don't get me wrong, it's close—just a bit more than a pebble drop worth of effort. In fact, we're looking to do some public testing.

Sticking with the rocky analogy, getting to this point with Cyberpunk/SciFi has felt like Sisyphus rolling his boulder up the hill[1]. Reviewing Assets and re-working them sometimes felt like restarting at the bottom of said hill. Unlike Sisyphus, however, we've reached the summit with a set of Assets we feel pretty good about. Approximately 660 Assets across Tiles, Props, and Creatures. A sizable boulder indeed!


Now for some Public Testing!

We'd love for interested individuals to check out the Assets and changes. To poke and prod them before we push the update live.

Like the Polymorph Beta on steam, we've set up a new Beta Branch for Cyberpunk and Scifi. As with previous Beta's, this is running on a staging server which means you will not have access to any of your "Live Server" Campaigns or Boards while you're on the Beta Branch.



Is it for you?

Are you looking to get an early look at what will be available? Maybe start playing around with creating some early slabs? Or perhaps you want to check for changes that might affect your unofficial mods. Then this might be for you. Remember that Boards and Campaigns created in this Test will not carry back onto the live server. 

Go here: https://talespire.com/welcome-to-the-cyberpunk-scifi-beta for details on how.

We appreciate any and all feedback!



When will it release to everyone?

We're close. We're looking at releasing it this coming week[2]. So what we're showing here is pretty close to final. 


The art team has done such a fantastic job on this update. We hope everyone will enjoy and encourage more Cyberpunk / Sci-Fi related content updates.


Till next time




[1] The game "Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy" would also work in this context. Great game!

[2] Unless this Live Test uncovers some bugs of Godzilla-like proportions.

I think from the discord you found it. But for others: all the details are in the guide linked in the article.

Is there a chance that copying a slab and saving it as text file for public release would work?

Slabs should work once the update goes live. Board share will not.

It's dope but small request: the only modern/normal looking car is the taxi. any chance you guys can take the model for the taxi and just make it blue and/or red so we can have some variation in modern-not sci fi streets? Thank you! fantastic work so far.
