Hello UGX Community,
it has been now almost over a year since the last UGX Launcher update for Donors .
[TL;DR version is at the bottom ]
It's time to share our plans for the upcoming months:
We will release a new UGXL version for donors around April / May.
The UGX Launcher is compared to the old one a complete overhaul.
Donors can already experience our new Homepage design. The new UI of the UGX Launcher will also have this nice blue touch.
There are too many changes to talk about them all but here is the version site of our development platform:
It's a massive changelog! (https://jira.ugx-mods.com/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10500&version=10400)
We also want to introduce our web frontend, UGX Play.
With UGX Play you can browse online through all maps and get a first impression of it.
Map reviews and their ratings for maps will be displayed,
as well as user rating and user installs (not available in donor release)
There are much more awesome features planned, which we introduce as we develop it further.
To help modders to submit their map to UGX Play, we will introduce the UGX MapPacker,
which will help you to pack your map properly. (including mod name check, etc.)
We are really excited about the donor release and can't wait to share what we have worked on for a while now.
UGX Launcher v1.0 donor release is planned in April / May to all UGX Donors.
After some more (donor) feedback, we will release the version to all users! (finally!)
We will introduce UGX Play (web fronted) to find and rate maps and the UGX MapPacker (for modders) to submit their maps on UGX Play.
With UGX Play / UGX Launcher we will change our policy. We allow now almost any map, if it meets certain criteria. (Expect a ton of new maps!)
