To keep you up to date and give everyone the chance to ask us questions, we will be hosting an informal community event dubbed “Outside The Hangar”. Everyone will have the chance to join in, and be selected to ask a question to the dev team.

The event is scheduled for 1900Z July 10th, 2021. We will be using Discord’s new Stages feature for this event. All you have to do is to look for the green broadcast icon at the top of the left sidebar when the event goes live and join the channel! Do note that you have to raise your hand and wait for your turn to ask a question.

Summer Screenshot Competition

We are preparing to start our summer-themed screenshot competition soon! It will be held on Discord with a dedicated channel for user submissions much like our previous competition. There will be prize(s) available, but we’d really love to be able to see our community’s creative side and maybe even feature some of your images as part of the prize list. 

We’ll have more information on the requirements for submissions soon, so please stay tuned to our Discord or social media.

Our next episode of The Workshop is scheduled to be published on July 23rd.
