Reminder:

Make sure your build is at or higher than the latest build posted below. If it's lower, verify the game contents to force an update. It's also important to remember that the sandbox depot is not updated regularly. This depot is only used for confined testing. If you were working with me on one of these confined tests, please remember to opt out of the sandbox depot so you're always receiving the most up-to-date build of the game.

Progress Update

Level Packages
While an update isn't available just yet, I wanted to make a quick post to bridge the gap between now and when the update becomes available.

Currently a system is being put into place that will allow you to package multiple levels into a single package that can be uploaded to the workshop and played much like a piece of the campaign. The goal will be to make the task of finding and downloading levels you might enjoy, less tedious.


In the upcoming update, you will be able to package several personal levels you've created into a single package and upload that package as a whole.

Workshop Branding
Of course it will absolutely still be possible to upload individual levels to the workshop. In fact, the section of the editor which permits you to do so isn't even being touched. However with the addition of level packaging will come some branding to help identify individual levels from level packages.




All levels and level packages uploaded to the editor after the newest build will have their preview picture marked as whether or not it's an individual level or a level package. Level packages will include the number of levels in the package in the upper right corner.

In addition to the branding, new uploads will be tagged as being either an individual level or a level package, so as to allow players to show or hide one or the other, depending on what they're looking for.

As of right now, there is no set limit on the minimum or maximum size level packages will be, however it's likely to be between 3 and 10 levels per package.
