Things have been busy here at Astral. These past few weeks, you all have really pushed the limits of what Astral was built to handle but we're quickly catching up to fulfill the massive amounts of new traffic and users we see daily. Astral is primarily run by three people, but we're a mighty bunch and are here to support you. We know this continues to be a difficult time for everyone. We are overwhelmed with the positive stories and connections you have shared with us on Astral.
We want to sincerely thank everyone who has submitted their feedback, reported an issue, or has used Astral as their virtual tabletop of choice these past weeks.
We are both humbled and amazed by all the new suggestions and continued support you all have given us. Thank you all for your support and patience as we grow with you.
In the interest of transparency, our top priority right now is making sure Astral is both stable and fast at all times.
This week we have been diligently working to improve the quality and performance of Astral. We are aware of several issues that make Astral feel slow at times.
Behind-the-scenes, we improved our internal tools that monitor the performance of our servers. The improved monitoring will help us respond more quickly to any performance or stability problems and help us isolate any bottlenecks that develop as more people join Astral. We can’t improve what we can’t measure and so much of the focus this past week was getting better measurements and monitoring in place.
With that in mind, we still were able to ship a few fixes and requests this week!
We continue to address reported issues and requests. As always, we are very interested in your feedback.
More requests from the community were addressed this week.
Thank you to everyone who reported issues this week.
This week, we shipped the updated character sheets to everyone; however, we aren't quite done yet!
There are still many requests we want to fulfill for character sheets, such as multiple health bars and drag-and-drop spells and actions. We will keep you all updated as those features progress.
We're continuing to look at the forums for feature requests, support tickets, and Discord to hear what you all have to say. Please don't hesitate to reach out and voice your feedback. Our table always has an open seat, let us know what you think.
Thanks for reading and for being a dedicated Astralnaut! We look forward to bringing you more updates from the Astral Plane.
