quality life update i wouldn't really call it that because uh i mean you won't necessarily see a big difference we'll see a big difference probably um but there are also some minor things that we feel like we want to probably release before update four because we really don't know the scope of update 4 yet like if it's going to be a big update or a small update or like um because it also ties a bit in with like what are we doing for update 5 because we also had we had a plan for update 5 for a long time which is kind of weird to say when we don't know what update 4 is but we do know what update 5 is um but uh yeah we're we had a plan for update 5 and we kind of had to scrap that because of like how it was it was it was tied into like dependencies between like programmers and artists so when we were planning for update 5 we were expecting like okay but update 5 is going to be where both programmers and artists can kind of like combine forces and do a lot of work together so update four would be like more of a not a lot of like tasking for programmers because programmers wanted to work on like we we have a lot of technical depth in the in the game right now so like we need to update a bunch of systems we want to update engine um there was just a bunch of stuff like that and uh we realized that uh we can't do that we can't wait for for programming like that so so we had we had ideas on what to do with update five but we can't do that right now so but yeah this is all very vague because there are nothing set in stone yet um but i think i think like fairly soon we can start like hammering down on what update 4 is actually going to be like we're also kind of like working out how we're going to go forward this because update 3 was like you know very hush hush and we want it to be a bit more open develop like more of an open development process going forward um so we're also kind of like figuring out how we do that and if you guys have anything specific that you like that you like to see from other developers um please hit us up with like you know other things that you like i know that arc for instance does do their uh development in a certain way and like factorio is also a good inspiration for like their friday facts stuff and stuff like that so we're also looking a lot like that what you guys want to see and you know so yeah pretty much that
