SCP:FS Devlog #06 – Building, Saving & more

Three doodles riding SCP-682. One wearing a cowboy hat.


Hello SCP fans,

As you might have noticed- there was no devlog for last week. This is because we took a little break and to make up for it we have a bit more to write about this time. To summarize the progress we made: more UI-improvements, re-work of the building system, bug-fixes, save-systems, worker names, highlighting objects, camera tracking. The PR-materials have also arrived to the office that we are eager to share with you.

If you want to read up on the previous devlog for SCP: Foundation Simulator “How to build your top secret facility.” where we talk about grants, building, and ███’s you can read that devlog here!
