We’re looking forward to starting off the holidays right with next week’s update!

    SDK Update

    DevMode:

    • The DevMode team has mostly been focusing on the last fixes before the release of the forthcoming update.
    • On the Scenery Editor side, the team is implementing the possibility to add a heightmap on a rectangle and to sculpt it. Besides that, fixes and improvements have also been achieved on the object duplication feature.
    • As a background task, the DevMode team is always working on improving the overall stability of the DevMode, giving special focus to the Project Editor, the Scenery Editor, and the Aircraft Editor.
    • Community feedback continues to be very helpful to identify & fix bugs and therefore making the tools better.

    WebAssembly:

    • We fixed the “trigger_key_event” function in the Panels API.
    • We implemented JIT compilation of WASM modules for specific use cases (decreases iteration times).
