Community Crunch 395: Love Evolved, Mod Spotlight, Bonus Rates, and More!

In this video, a Survivor encounters a surprise User-Created Cosmetic Costume dynamically added onto any server, including official servers…. and then, journey into the brave new world of Total Conversions using the new Mod game framework, which enables nearly anything that Unreal Engine can do to be released as a cross-platform Mod. We’ve a created a quick example to show one way to use it.

And then next up, the Mod Spotlight features basic examples of player-created Custom Structures which as of next week can be dynamically added onto any server, including Official Servers, allowing infinite functionality and visual variety. Finally, onto the Cross-Platform Mods released this week!
