May 16th, 2024 – Development Update

We are pleased to share an updated Development Roadmap with you this week! You can find it below.

On Tuesday, we released a new test build (1.37.18.0) to those community volunteers enrolled in the Sim Update 15 public beta. We expect this to be the final SU_15 release build unless there are any blocking issues identified by the community beta testers.

On Tuesday, we announced that Sim Update 15 will be delayed for a little longer while the team works to resolve a few remaining issues which we consider release blockers. Delivering a Sim Update of very high quality is extremely important to us, so we are taking a bit of extra time to make sure SU_15 will be positively received by simmers.
