v0.5.4: Big Summer Update #2

Big Summer Update 2

Today marks the release of the second major update in a series of Community Vote events where you, the amazing Guts and Glory fans, get to vote on the content you want to see in the game!

Zoe Zoom, stunt woman extraordinaire

Zoe Zoom

Class B Vehicle

Nobody knows where she came from, but everybody loves her! Zoe Zoom has captured the attention of fans across America, and soon the world!

Already famous for her death-defying stunts like jumping a school bus full of children across the Grand Canyon, Zoe is ready to claim her presence on the global stage by entering the Guts and Glory games.

In last month's Community Vote #2 event, she won the vote by a huge margin.  You guys really love this one!

Her stunt bike is built for high speeds, maneuverability, and landing extreme jumps.  On flat ground she can reach speeds of over 100 mph with her rocket boost alone!  Similar to the bicycle, you can use the Roll buttons to lean extra hard into a turn, rounding corners very sharply at significant speeds, and her shock system can absorb some fairly rough falls.

Zoe is ready for any stunts you throw her way!

Leaderboard glory!

Steam Leaderboards

Leaderboards are here at last!  Compete with your friends for the best track times, or fight for a place in the glorious Global Top 10.  Times are tracks to the millisecond, so every move counts.

Leaderboards can be sorted by:

  • Personal Best Time vs Global Rank
  • Friends vs Friends
  • Global Top 10

***** Log In Soon *****

The first time you log into Guts and Glory, your best times for each completed Official Track will be automatically uploaded to the Steam Leaderboards.

Leaderboards are currently just set for Official Tracks.  Later I might add more boards for Stats / Community Tracks.  (There's a limit on the number of leaderboards Steam allows, so this is a little trickier to execute.)

Can you beat everyone's best track times?

Break all the thinnnngs!

Mass Destruction

I did a huge optimization pass on all of the destructible items in the game, boosting their performance by as much as 50%!  This allowed me to finally add these objects to the Level Editor.

Destructible Items

There are now 31 new Destructible Items in the Level Editor!

Navigate to Props-->Destructible Items to start using them now and add some more chaos to those Community Tracks.  There's a wide variety to choose from, including Glass, Chip Boards, Fences, Dishes, and the classic Wooden Barrel.

Workshop Menu 2.0

Search, sort, save, subscribe and play with ease!

Search, sort, save, subscribe and play with ease!

The Community Tracks menu just got a major overhaul!

Now you can do all of the following with Steam Workshop levels, directly in-game.  

  • Sort Levels by: votes, trending, subscriptions, newest, installed, and your own creations
  • Search by Text
  • Vote levels up or down
  • Add to your Favorites list
  • One-click Subscribe/Un-subscribe
  • See Stats for each level (votes, subs, favorites)

Personal Best Times are still shown for each track (so you can easily see what you have played already and to compete with friends), but the Vehicle Class icons have been removed due to lack of space.  Level Descriptions have been increased to 256 characters.  Longer descriptions are still shown in full on the Steam Workshop website though.

Overall, this should make finding, sharing and playing new Workshop levels super fast and easy, and keep new stuff from being buried.

Localization Update

Chinese and French translations have been reviewed and improved.  Spanish and Turkish human translation improvements will be added soon too.  I'm sorting through some other submissions as well, so please be patient if you do not see your submissions shown in the game right away.

All Localization updates sync to the Google server once per week.

Translators

I began adding the Level Editor Categories and Objects to the Localization Document.  It's a fairly long list, so it's only about 70% done right now.  I marked new text added to the Localization Document in yellow, under the "Key" column.  (Items with "_ObjectMap" at the end are the most important.  Others have image icons.)

Bug Fixes and Minor Stuff


- Fixed bug that sometimes caused music to stop when returning from Community Tracks.
- Fixed some static text that was not getting localized.
- Made blood splatter "flat" due to poor gloss reflection issues and artifacts on some graphics cards.
