This week we are adding the ability to increase the resolution of videos on your in game screens!
You can now have upto 4x resolution on your video feeds, making cameras much more useful and easy to use.
When we initially introduced the screens, many players asked for higher resolution. It has taken a while! But we are very pleased to be improving screens and ultimately, improving the cameras and monitor systems in game. One reason is that we have been finding the cameras to be very useful in our multiplayer testing!
LUA UI remains at the same resolution to keep compatibility with existing scripts so nothing will break.
You now have a new in game screen resolution setting in your graphics settings - be sure to set this to maximum if your PC can handle it!
This is a small update while we continue to work hard on the upcoming multiplayer update.
Tomorrow is a historic day... Stormworks is leaving the Green Man Gaming publishing portfolio! We are taking over the publishing ourselves as an independent studio.
The reason for this is that the term of the publishing agreement has come to an end, and we have decided to self-publish like many other building games, as opposed to continue with a publisher. This is no reflection on GMG who have been a fantastic partner and we wish them all the best in the future. Special thanks to Gary, David, and Peter at GMG who have worked hard for us. Thank you.
What does this mean for Stormworks players? Not much. It goes without saying, if you purchased the game from GMG, Humble, or any of their partners, your game key continues to be valid. We are simply taking over the promotion of the game.
Please note that we are ending distribution agreements with other retailers, so from 1st Feb 2020, the only authorised distributor of Stormworks will be Steam (although we may expand this in the coming months).
Much love <3
