Introduction

Hey everyone, this is Loren from Donut Team and welcome to another Tuesday Topics blog post!

This week, I only have a few small things to talk about so let's get into it.

Forum Updates
Version 21.4.3

A few days ago, we pushed Version 21.4.3 of the DT Forum.

This version removed the ability to downvote posts and renamed upvotes to "Likes", as we discussed doing in the previous Tuesday Topics.

This change will not be reverted.

Version 21.4.4

This version is entirely internal changes related to how badge collections and individual badge information is retrieved for user profiles.

This coincides with an update to our internal API that makes adding new badges easier and decouples the process from updates to the API application itself.

While this contains no user-facing changes, this overhaul did take some time to accomplish so I hope this brief explanation helps you appreciate the effort behind it.

Future Additional Characters Update

One of our new staff members, @maz, as well as @Borb are working on new Itchy & Scratchy character models for our resource pack.

Stay tuned for the chance to incorporate the iconic duo into your mods in the near future!

Happy Halloween

The spookiest day of the year is upon us so we at Donut Team just wanted to wish everyone reading this a safe and Happy Halloween!

In spite of the occasion, apparently, @Borb has cooked up a brand new costume for Homer that you can download and play around with and incorporate into your own mods, should you so choose.

Homer scratching his shiny metal ass.

This costume is being released as a part of our compilation mod, Donut Team Event Cars & Characters, which you can check out at the link below.

The costume itself can be put on in Level 7!

Conclusion

Thanks for reading another one of our Tuesday Topics posts! See you again next week.
