Early Access version 123

MAIN CHANGES

Thanksgiving Edition! Well, as close to it as I can get, at least. I tried to port as much content from CI4 Thanksgiving as possible, but there were time and technical constraints (specifically, it was not possible to turn the basic chicken breeds into turkeys – although they do sound like them!). Anyway, enjoy it while it lasts.

Otherwise, this update includes a lot of improvements to the mobile input/control system, as well as some instrumentation to catch some multiplayer crashes. To support this, some control options were added (which sadly means your menu options have been reset in this update again :frowning: )


Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. Note that your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (put it in your forum profile where it says “name” so I can find it).

COMPATIBILITY

You will lose:

  • any mid-mission progress
  • your language selection
  • all your menu Options

  • :gear: Reworked input system (yet again) to unify text input from keyboard/joypad/touchscreens.

Can you remove windows/android icon when offline @InterAction_studios ?

@InterAction_studios So I was playing some of the boss rushes recently and found out one of the turkey’s eyes aren’t following players movements. Is this intended? If so… Could you have the turkey’s eyes follow players movements?
