Continued Improvements at Scale

The team has had another busy week and we are continuing to diligently work on your requests and reports for Astral.

We are continuing to see incredible growth in our traffic and are learning to operate faster and smoother through this growing period. We sincerely appreciate everyone that has reached out with their reports and for their patience as we investigate and fix these issues at scale.

We are currently investigating reports of users being unable to stay connected (or rapidly connecting and disconnecting), and some instances of textures failing to load properly. Rest assured, we are on the case.

If you are experiencing these issues, at the current time the best solution is to refresh the page. Clearing session cookies or clearing site data from developer tools can be helpful as a last resort. Don’t forget to drop us a bug report if this occurs; we collect useful metadata that could help us find the cause of these bugs.

New Character Sheets

We’ve made the following character templates live for all Astral users:

Expanding System Support Beta

Enhanced roll syntax testing is going well in beta! The beta team has already caught and reported a handful of bugs which have been addressed and released. If all is well, we should be able to go live with the new syntax as early as next week.

Speaking of expanding system support …

Official Publisher Modules Coming Soon

We’ve heard you! So many members of the community have requested official content since Astral was born, and we’re pleased to announce we’ve made great progress. We’ve added character templates for several systems, and we’ve been working with publishers to get official games, modules, and books on Astral and we are very close to making an official announcement and update!

We cannot wait to show you what we’re launching with and what’s to come. We’re very excited for what we intend to deliver over the next couple weeks.

📣 We're Listening

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.

That's all for now!

Thanks for reading and for being a dedicated Astralnaut! We look forward to bringing you more updates from the Astral Plane.
