The attic pack is on sale. Also, apparently (from the monthly newsletter): "In the background, we have also received a new version of the GLTF importer code from a freelancer who helped create it, and although it only does static textured models at this stage, we are considering adding this new file format to the Model Importer in a future update. We are also looking closely at a new multiplayer technology too, which will finally allow non-Steam non-owners of GameGuru to play multiplayer sessions with their friends, so watch out for official news on that in the next few months."
That's kind of neat, I guess? I'm still anxious to hear about the bug fixes purportedly in the pipeline though.
Grobyken put together a really good looking war-torn building model:

What's Good in the Store
This week there's been a lot of updates. Lots of subjectively good things.
Dagored's got a great looking Apache chopper, Wolf's made some interesting Sci-Fi containers, Mad Lobster continues his film/photo set work, and Graphix put together some excellent looking PBR assets.

Wolf's been working more on Acythian and fine-tuning his scenery:
A new project called "Sereos" (Serious?) made its rounds with some decent looking screenshots:
Synchromesh added some new pieces to protascope and I have to say I'm super excited to see more work being done on this:
And I'm happy to report that Len the Man has been continuing his cowboy shooter, fine tuning his lighting and level design to produce some really nice looking results:
Keep doing the good work everyone! So far, it seems to be a very productive year for the community.
In My Own Works
The book's secondary materials are grinding along. I've also got edits to make on a very strict timeline to make the August 19th production deadline.
I've finally settled on my 'pack freebie' space sky for the new 4k kit. Owners of the 'Bonus Sampler' will get this included, as well as those who own the 4k HD Space Skies set will also receive this.
A teaser is included below and this should be added within the week!
Have a great week, everyone!
