Halloween Update Out Now!

Happy Halloween everybody! The latest free content update for Making it Home is out now! We started it out as a Halloween focused update but before we knew it we had 10 new vehicle components to add to the game! We are starting to realise that the number of components in the game means we need to start thinking about some UI improvements in blueprint mode - we didn't have time to get that done for this patch but it is something we want to address.

The other big change is the addition of seasonal cosmetics and themes. At the moment we have just added stuff for Halloween, you'll see spooky Jack-O-Lanterns, scary spiderwebs and curious candy explosions! Right now these automatically appear based on the date, but eventually we want to add customisation for this stuff.
