Thanks to this week's contributors, @xMAC94x, @JakobDev, @James, @Sam, and @Tormod!

Last weekend, Veloren participated in Reddit's /r/place project. Veloren was able to get a spot on the map by allying with /r/Rust and building beside them. A template was created so that everyone in the area could know what colours to place, which made it easy to protect the area. It was a lot of fun, and we got a pretty great result eternalized in the final image (before the destruction of the whole map 😛).

Day one on the left, day two on the right.

If you missed it, be sure to check out Veloren's April Fools post!

Veloren Reading Club #7 by @aweinstock

This week, another Veloren Reading Club was held! The topic was profiling Veloren with the Tracy profiler.

As a supplement to the talk, here are some commands to follow along and try Tracy yourself:

Compiling and running Tracy:

git clone
cd tracy
git checkout tags/v0.7.8 -b tags_v0.7.8
cd profiler/build/unix

Compiling and running Veloren with Tracy support:

cargo run --features=tracy --bin veloren-server-cli
cargo run --features=tracy --bin veloren-voxygen

Running Veloren's "swarm" client (requires running the server with --no-auth and making swarm0 an admin):

cargo run --features='bin_bot tick_network' --bin swarm
