On this fateful foggy spring night, we bring to you the latest version of Kanka. Featuring a new build system, a special ability to play out your first battle without killing monsters in your party as well as a whole revamped Kanka Mode. It’s an RPG-like style where you fight with your party as they explore and pick their own paths, battling against enemies together. Kanka Mode is playable at any time by playing as the main character. If you already joined a Kanka mode you may wish to continue playing as a different character, or enable clustering of enemies!
- Easy to pick battle, single player
- 2-player campaign
- The best in fighting games
- Free to do or play version of Kanka Mode
Ignore that, I was just having fun with an AI that automatically writes text based on input. Sadly I can’t yet automate my job of writing these patch notes!
New feature – marker clustering
Markers on maps will now cluster together. This clustering makes busy maps easier to explore, especially when zooming out!
Update: this is now an optional field, activated by default on all maps. It can be disabled on the map update form.
The campaign’s public role interface is a lot easier to use. A campaign can be set as public or private from this interface now.
Campaign exports now include aliases and links.
Campaign themes now have the “search” module installed from CodeMirror. This makes editing large custom themes a lot easier.
Deleting relations is now possible from the update form. This enables easy relation deletion from the visual relation explorer. The same has been added for map markers.
The icon to show or hide the sidebar has been updated to be visually clearer.
On the items module, we’re renaming the character field to “creator” in English to avoid confusion.
The language switcher has seen improvements following user feedback, with our smaller communities once again available at the end of the interface.
Marketplace – project Loki
As announced on our Discord, we’ve released a brand new marketplace design, which fixes many visual issues (especially with the dark mode). Recently updated plugins will now also be more visually distinct in the various interfaces, so you know if your favourite plugin is up to date.
