March Game Jam
Heads down, it's time to Jam!

Hot on the heels of the previous game jam projects that launched last week, the JMods have been back in experimentation mode, and they're coming up with all sorts of exciting ideas for future updates! Things are just getting started, so expect more news on the outcome of these sessions soon.

As a tantalising taster for some of the projects in this Game Jam, check out Mod Sponge's ambitious plan to update tooltips, and Mod Daze's idea to enhance some of the Clan interfaces!

Patch Notes
Fixes and improvements in this week's game update

Game Jam

This week has been devoted to Game Jam so regular work has taken a backseat while JMods develop new ideas. That means no Patch Notes this week.

However, we’ve left this section in this newspost to avoid any confusion.
