Throughout the development of SNOW we have implemented exposed variables as a way to allow the entire team to test different values for the core mechanics (riding, turning, jumping etc) locally instead of having to test them on our programmer's PC before they are hard-coded.
When we released SNOW on Steam Early Access, we decided to keep these variables exposed so that our users may access them and see how the various systems in the game work behind the scenes. This also means that users can tweak the values and potentially improve some of these mechanics.
We know many of you are excited by the opportunity to help us improve the game, so we have put together an online document that outlines all the variables that we have created and exposed. We have also created an online form that you can use to submit new values you think feel better than what is currently available in-game. This allows us to test your values and, if we think they are indeed better, implement them in new builds to get feedback from the rest of the community.
So, in summary:
- Go here to view all of the variables in-game
- Follow the instructions at the top of the page and start playing around with the values in-game
- Submit your new values here
