    This is our first Friday Update since releasing into Early Access. It's been a great 2 weeks with some new records (135 players in the Public World) and a lot of great feedback from the community which helped shape this update.

    To balance out Time Cubes gains, Blue Butterflies are now spread across all the Horde zones instead of all of them being in the end of planet zone.

    A multiplier is added for every deposited Blue Butterfly, so the more you collect the higher the multiplier goes. This way you'll still get benefits from earlier collected butterflies as you progress through the game.

    In addition to the current Time Attack widget, we've added a couple of new widgets.

    The Convoy Widget displays the number of players & their icons that are in your zone as well as the zones in front & behind you. The red or blue line below the players icons show whether or not they've completed the zone.

    The Time Cube Widget allows you to compare the Time Cube stats for your current timeline against your all time best stats.

    We did experience some server stability issues for the first few days after release. We have identified & fixed the issues so the Public World should continue to be stable.

    The next Friday Update will be on November 30, in the meantime continue to share your feedback & suggestions on the Steam Forums & our Discord.
