After many months, Global Leaderboards are finally returning! The leaderboards are still continuously being populated as player join the game. Please do let me know if you see any major issues related to Global Leaderboards.
New Lighting Engine
The lighting engine has been upgraded to the newest version, shadow map lighting. With this, I have completely changed how the night/day cycle function in order to optimize the game’s performance. Night and day transitions should be very smooth now.
Many of the assets in the world have begun to use Roblox’s new level-of-detail system. This should hopefully improve FPS performance across the board.

“I understand that this is not a massive update, but my goal lately is to push things incrementally every 1-2 weeks as opposed to holding everything for one update every 1-2 months. This way, the game can receive updates at a more reasonable pace.” – Cody_Nelson
