Update 3.4: "Quality of Life v2" now ready for testing!

Posted by: Schtan on steam_community_announcements July 10, 2020

Ahoy drifters!

We're pleased to announce that we have another update ready to test for you all. This update iterates on the user feedback UI and adds new languages.

We did a rework of the notification and user feedback UI to improve the general player experience.
Part of the community has been translating new languages for some time now. We're adding Ukrainian, Turkish and Danish with this update. If you'd like to help as well, head over to Localizor to get started!
To the established translators, thanks for the hard work!

We invite you all to test this update and find any issues before we upload it to the main branch.

When bugs occur, provide as much information as possible to help us resolve these faster!
Read here how to submit and track the current bugs in the game.

This patch is still in development and can be tested on the experimental branch to give feedback.

This is how you can enable the experimental branch of Flotsam. This will only work when you're not in a game:
1. Open Steam Library
2. Right click Flotsam
3. Select Properties
4. Go to tab 'Betas' at the top.
5. Select 'Experimental' in the drop-down.

Enjoy the new update!
