Let's kick off the start of summer with the release of Lumberyard 1.25! It may not be sparkling white beaches and the gentle murmur of palm trees swaying in a soft coastal breeze, but it's fresh and new and packed with some great features – such as a new user interface, GPU-enabled NVIDIA Cloth support, a new White Box Tool to help you play with the fundamentals of your levels, and Script Canvas Functions – as well as over 120 bug fixes. And while it may not soothe your weary game developer's soul like the cool waters of a beachfront pool and a tropical beverage, it'll hopefully boost your productivity and keep you moving forward with your game projects. And if it doesn't? Well, you know where to find us!
(Oh, and there's a new version of Starter Game waiting for you, now with minty-fresh PhysX support, improved assets, and full Script Canvas integration. Enjoy!)
As we continue to improve Lumberyard, we want to thank everyone in our community whose suggestions help us make a better product every release. Since the initial launch, we've overhauled over 70% of the original code base, and we're working like crazy to make Lumberyard the best dang game engine out there.
