We get it, everyone's busy - so here's a quick video recapping the latest features that are in beta and what we're shipping to everyone soon!
Our many improvements to Fog of War and Visual FX are starting to stabilize in beta! With the help of our stellar beta team we have been able to increase the performance of Fog of War and Dynamic Lighting, even for lower-end machines.
While we were in the area, our FX Grandmaster has done some touch-ups to existing Visual FX and increased our overall FX offering. (See the video above for a sneak peak!)
We have also been improving some minor interfaces like the right-click menu.
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.
The weather is beginning to change and Pro users are already prepared to dive into frozen fortresses! Pro users have already unlocked this massive 216 tile set and you can also purchase the pack from the marketplace.
Check out the latest releases this week. Over 685 new assets went live this week on Astral! We would also like to formally welcome Crow's Nest to the marketplace!

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.
Working in conjunction with artists, we are working to get more 5e SRD content (tokens, complete monster/NPC characters and more) available to all community members.
Soon you will have access to tokens or portraits for the entire SRD, as well as heroes, NPCs and other members of the common fantasy population.
We have big plans to expand more on, but for now, stay tuned!
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.
The tutorial improvement progress continues, and we hope to have a final product ready for everyone’s use in the coming weeks.
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.
