Month End Summary #2: May 2017
Good evening, everyone! It’s time for the Month End Summary for our first full month since entering the creation phase of the project. I feel like it’s been a very productive month, and I hope everyone has been enjoying the released maps and map icons.
This month I’ve released 24 new maps and over 100 new map icons (5 new icons sets).
Map #36 was just released moments ago, and Icon set #8 will be arriving a tad late in the next day or so. Its intended release today was delayed a bit due to the massive upload of this month’s Summary download ZIPs (which weigh in at over 2.2 GB including the maps). The summary downloads are available right now to backers: just check your “My Account” section in the Digital Distribution Tool.
Here’s a quick look at what was released via the Digital Distribution Tool in May 2017:
According to the numbers (map release count, project deadline, days since DDT launch) we’re currently 26 days ahead of schedule, and the entire project is over 18% complete.
I’ve added these dynamic calculations to the DDT just beneath the “News” section. This way we can all keep track of where the project is at and how much progress has been made via a live view.
Updates & New Features for the DDT –
Aside from adding in the “Progress Calculation” widget, I haven’t made many updates to the Digital Distribution Tool this past month. I did a few tweaks to squelch bugs (documented in the comments section here on Kickstarter), but mainly I’ve been focusing on getting content out and working on the custom maps for backers.
I’m hoping to get to some new features added to the DDT during the month of June, and will post notice of any new features via the comments section.
In Conclusion –
May has been a productive month, and I hope to make June even more so. We’ll stay on top of this, and keep pulling ahead of schedule this summer.
Thanks again for your support. You’re all awesome!
Have a great week!
