This week we released an update that should have gone unnoticed to many. In short, Astral is now 61% smaller in size delivering 100% of the same features.
What does this mean for you? For starters, it means at least 61% less code is being downloaded each time you visit Astral. It also means future updates to Astral will only download new files, saving you countless seconds each page change. Ultimately, it means Astral uses less bandwidth and requires less code to run - a huge win for both you and us!
This update was pushed live for everyone earlier this week. We are continuing to measure the impact of the change and have immediate plans to continue improving the performance of Astral.
While our team is busy focusing on making Astral better, our partners at DriveThruRPG have helped us set up Astral subscriptions that can be redeemed using your favorite payment method right from DriveThruRPG. Even better, we are still offering Pro for 30% off for a total of \$70/year.
If you’ve been looking to upgrade your Astral experience but have been waiting for PayPal support, then this option is for you. Upon purchasing the year from DriveThruRPG, you will be able to download a PDF with additional info about confirming the subscription.
If you’d like to gift a year of Pro to your GM, feel free to use this option! During the verification, let the Astral staff know which account to apply the subscription to and we’ll take care of the rest.
Please note it could take us 1-2 business days to process your verification.
Thank you to everyone who reported issues this week.
Drawing tools are continuing to evolve thanks to the many comments we’ve received from beta users.
This week, we improved the look-and-feel of brush strokes (rounded edges) and added two additional brush sizes (x-small and x-large).
We plan to introduce “opacity” and “feathering” options in the next update.
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.
