uh state of dev cool uh take it away you know exciting what's going on all right uh if you remember anything at all i i do i just don't know what is news and i don't know what means that's just supposed to be said or not like i don't know what you said last week or anything i don't i don't think uh i'm trying to remember as well what i've said uh so we're still what we've said is that update five is gonna come sometime fall 2021 and there's gonna be one bajillion people saying oh 2022 confirmed um so we're working on these five we've kind of changed a little bit how we were structuring the updates uh when we decided to not do update five before our vacation period so to speak um so the update five is going to be a little bit bigger than we anticipated um and it changed a little bit how we yeah our structure essentially um so so that's like confirmed so far once we have a date once we actually know when we think update five actually mislead that we'll let you guys know of course um and uh yeah we're gonna try and do a similar thing with update 4 where before we you know reveal update 5 we're going to like give you guys some info about update 5 of what's going to change and if there's any rebalancing that you need to do or and what's coming in update 5 essentially and uh but when that starts i don't know exactly because it depends a little bit about when we feel like the update 5 is going to come there's going to be an epic trailer yes we've actually already started working on that

so uh yeah a lot a lot of exciting things are happening we're still pretty much in like the planning phase of things so we've started prototyping some things for update five we're trying to narrow down like what update five is gonna be exactly um and uh once a lot of cool stuff from update five that's like yeah sort of already functional yeah it's pretty cool and as soon as we feel like now it's a good time to start like revealing things then we're gonna start revealing things essentially so but in between now and then you're stuck with us or something and we have some ideas for for content in the meantime as well interesting stuff maybe some some stuff that's like kind of about update for but more in-depth or you know informative it might still be interesting you know so we can we can milk update for a little longer exactly my words almost exactly yeah uh yeah so uh that's that's pretty much state of dev currently like there's probably there's going to be a little bit of period now where maybe you won't get like the latest and greatest news every single week you know because because things really ramp up like the last couple of months before we reach like our internal deadline or whatever for things uh and like yeah right now we're just like trying to figure out what's going on and uh what we want to do yeah and it's it's sort of like a you know i'm not developing anyone or a programmer anymore and you know neither you but this this point like right after an update is usually like pretty exciting when you start working on a bunch of new stuff because you start you start getting a lot of like from my experience like a lot of quick wins because yeah you're making new things it's a really creative process um you bust out a bunch of features they're not quite working yet but they're cool and they're new and they're fresh you know for us so it's usually like i don't know what the the um the dev team is like but feeling at the moment but i i know that in my experience this period is usually pretty exciting pretty fun yeah uh time it's also a period where everything feels possible and you're like oh it's going to be amazing and we're going to be able to like build this amazing machine thing that can shoot lasers and poop on poop gold and stuff and then when you actually start developing it you're like oh there's limitations here uh but before you get to that point when you're prototyping everything looks good and dandy um yeah and then you get close to the deadlines and then the stress comes in yeah the existential dread kicks in and then and everyone's like give us the update we're like oh god yeah pretty much
