Month 26 of Landlord’s Super Early Access.
The Power Tools Update for Landlord’s Super is now available for testing through the InDev branch. The update contains several new tools, powered by the new mobile compressor. There’s also a new wall frame type for complete brick wall builds. The update will hit the main branch soon.
Mobile Compressor & Power Tools
To help speed up constructions and add more progression options to the game, we’ve added the option to purchase a mobile compressor and an array of power tools.
The mobile compressor is powered, so needs to be turned on to use. The benefit of this, however, is that the tools powered by this do not deplete player energy. Along with the mobile compressor, there are 5 new tools that can be purchased. Each of these tools can be stored on the compressor for ease of transport. The new power tools are as follows:
- Nail Gun
- Applies nails to surfaces and instantly secures them
- Mortar Gun
- Holds significantly more than the Trowel
- Applied mortar to surfaces and instantly flattens it
- Holding input fills No-Fines frames significantly faster
- Powered Screwdriver
- Instantly secures screws
- Bolt Gun
- Instantly secures bolts
- Pneumatic Breaker
- Significantly speeds up destruction of construction elements
Brick Wall Frames
We’ve finally added support for brick wall builds, meaning you can now easily build structures entirely of brick – with automatic roof generation. Brick walls can be access from the wall frame hot bar, as with other wall frame types.
Robbaz streamed Landlord’s Super over the course of two days. If you’d like to watch, both streams can be found here and here.
What is InDev?
InDev is a separate branch on Steam that gives players access to updates earlier while they are still in development. It’s a great way to try out new features early whilst also helping to make updates release as polished as possible. Whilst InDev contains the majority of the content available in the upcoming Free Build update, players who opt-in should expect bugs, performance issues and some missing features.
How to Access InDev
1. Right Click on your Landlord’s Super install in Steam and select “properties”
2. Click the Betas tab and then select InDev In development access
3. The InDev build should start to download on steam!
Note: Steam may require a restart after stage 2 for the InDev to download.
Jalopy Fan Faction
Spotted in the Discord, Jalopy seems to have some interesting fan fiction for it…
You can read the fan fiction here. Warning NSFW!
American Daydream by Jeremy Warmsley
The ever talented and inspiring Jeremy Warmsley (Composer of Both Jalopy and Landlord’s Super) has a new album coming out, American Daydream.
American Daydream is an album of original songs paying homage to the life and music of Brian Wilson, lead singer and songwriter of the Beach Boys.
You can listen and purchase the album here. Full release is expected in September.
This month we hosted a community evening. It went really well and is something we’d like to do again in the future. Not sure if we shared before, but DialUpDude over on the discord recreated the in-game cassette player. Wolf Wings also created a really inspired “pyramid haus” build.
