housekeeping

February Update

Hey guys,

The past couple weeks have rather been absorbed by boring, but essential, housekeeping. Now that we’re moving into using Unity more prominently, as well as Unity assets, we’ve been taking care of the not overly simple task of getting all the devs up to the same basis.

We’re in the process of updating the codebase from v5.5.0 to 2017. And the tooling that’s available for 2017 is not the same, and doesn’t work as well, as 5.5.0, without having to modernise a lot of things. Whilst we can continue in 5.5.0, it would be better in the long term to update the engine and use the more modern, and more optimised, API. Especially in the use of assets, it’s rather essential everyone be on the same version so we’re not chasing extra bugs. And we all use Windows, Mac, and Linux, so it’s not been a simple affair.
