Changes mentioned in this dev-shot are part of EGBB update: V0.2.2
The launch of EGBB was spectacular! Thank you so much to all who purchased the airport and allowing us to do what we love!
Since launch day, we have had 3-4 members of the community contributing in the form of images and videos, to help us make the airport accurate, which is awesome!
We still have a long way to go, and will be adding new things all the time, but feedback so far has been great!
We have been wanting to release an update since before the UK world update, so it feels like an eternity ago
Now… on with what’s new! (Its a chunky one!)
