Release 80 is now live in Shroud of the Avatar and with it are new ways for players to blip between player-created towns. The teleporter items that were previewed earlier are now in-game, with a number of different types of things that can function as a route between player-created towns, from the previewed wagon to hot air balloons to ships to road signs.
With this new update, vouchers can no longer be utilized for new developer created player-owned town interconnections, but players can still request interconnections to NPC towns using service vouchers until NPC town teleporters become available.
As for the future of the game, players can look forward to a number of new building block materials including white and black marble, two types of granite, rough and polished wood, and iron. These new blocks will come in the same 110-packs and size variants as previous block sets, and will no longer be limited to just property decoration, meaning all block sets will be permitted as Player-Owned Town decorations going forward.
The Avatar Update post further outlines, among other things, a free potted sunflower for those who log in to the game. Whether it sings about zombies on your lawn or not is yet to be determined, but it probably doesn’t.
