Is it hard to see in here, or is it just me? Fog of War is still in Beta, and we’re getting some great feedback and metrics from our beta team. This week some performance enhancements and critical bug fixes went out to Beta, as well as some tweaks to visual FX and weather.
We also have a new “debug info” setting that will show various nerdy stats about Astral, useful for measuring performance and in-depth debugging.
There is more work to be done, and you could help! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to become a beta tester and help us provide the best possible FoW experience.
In the spirit of Fog of War, we have also spent some time cleaning up weather and visual fx to make them look even better.
We have also introduced a new weather option, Blizzard!
But that's not all!
Additionally, you will soon be able to activate Top Down Snow! Check out a small preview below.
Check out the latest releases this week. Over 980 new assets went live this week on Astral! We would also like to formally welcome DT Sound, Domille's Wondrous Works, and Misjay Maps to the marketplace!

As always, we have been blown away by the community's participation, feedback, and support. We sincerely thank every single community member for choosing Astral as your VTT of choice for your tabletop RPG campaigns.
Much of the improvements we have been working on over the past 4 months have been directly inspired by your feedback, feature requests, and discussions on Discord and the forums. We’re pleased to say we have a lot more on the way, and are excited to announce new improvements and features soon.
Stay tuned for more exciting news to come!
We continue to address reported issues and requests. As always, we are very interested in your feedback.
Thank you to everyone who reported issues this week.
Some of our frequent feedback in the past has asked for more tutorial content related to creating stats and actions from scratch, and wiring up characters with automation rather than just demonstrating what automation can be done.
We’re actively working on a new tutorial topic specifically dedicated to character building. We plan to release this content soon for the benefit of the entire community.
Haven’t tried the tutorials? We strongly encourage you to give them a shot! Level up you and your party’s experience by creating new tutorial games from your Astral homepage.
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.
