Bando City is finally here! Not satisfied with making a single abandoned structure, we decided to give you a high-rise city block to explore. Bando City is set into in an abandoned Chinese construction site. Half finished high-rise buildings, drainage systems, monuments and parking-lots are completely open to be explored. While this place will at some point become a thriving community, it's now completely abandoned and available as your personal playground.
Your voice has been loud and clear, you love Liftoff so much that any loading screen feels like a waste of time ;) These past few updates we've worked on making the loading times quicker and more efficient, but while improvements on this front have been made, we felt more work was needed to get you in the game quicker. We are excited to introduce the quick-play options, allowing you to fly in no more than two mouse-clicks and a single loading-screen. The following quick play options are available:
Start a random selected race session and prove you can handle every situation thrown at you!
- Last Session:
Start flying right where you left last time and save time going trough options and menu's
- Quick Setup:
Not a fan of casually scrolling trough the levels and your drones? Quickly set your desired level and get flying. This option will be available in the pause menu too so it can be accessed quickly at any time.
Main menu restructuring
No need to panic, we haven't removed the Workbench and Track builder, these features can now be access in the main menu using the "Tools" tab. This allows us to add more modes to both the single player and tool tab in future updates. Furthermore we've added a small Community button on the bottom right corner of the screen, giving you access to all social media and community links, replacing the "Community" tab from the main menu items. Making these changes, we hope to make the menu future proof and we hope this helps you to find all the features and content more easily.
The team is already working on the next big updates and can't wait to tell you all about it. While we are not yet ready to reveal everything, we have a little teaser for you in the form of a visual quiz.
