What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re releasing in Early Access because our initial goal was to release in April (with a lot less features that you are seeing now). But due to the overwhelming response and support from our Kickstarter backers and reaching over 1200% of our goal, we wanted to add a lot more content and features so we can bring you the best game possible! We’re still releasing in April, just in Early Access instead and with a lot more features implemented than we initially planned, and with a lot more still to come. Hop on for the ride!”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will be working on the game until both us and the community feels confident in the feature set presented, but that won't be the end of the game's development either! We have released nearly a patch a week since our Kickstarter ended, so we are fully dedicated to the success of the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Unlocked Stretch Goals:
3 Additional Game Modes [2 MORE GAMES HAVE BEEN ADDED!]
Mod Support (3D Models) [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
RPG Kit (30 animated figurines, Dungeon Tileset, Character Sheets) [MOST OF THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
Steam Workshop Support [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
CastAR Support
Oculus Rift Support
Customizable Figurines
Space Theme
and tons more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Tabletop Simulator has all the fundamental features of the game ready for you to play. With over 15 games to choose from and the sandbox nature of the game, you are set to play hundreds of different games. In addition, you can create your own mods and upload them directly to Steam Workshop. The only limitation is of your imagination.

Tons of new content is still to come and your support will help make the game grow even more. Different features are subject to change and your feedback will help shape the direction we take the game for the better!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase when the game leaves early access so be sure to pick it up to save some dosh!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We love our community and are proud that we take our community seriously! With the updates almost every week since our Kickstarter ended, we've taken a lot of the suggestions and feedback they have given us and implemented them into the game! So it's very important to give us your feedback, so we can make Tabletop Simulator the best it can be!”

Update v2.9 - Deck Searching, Camera Overhaul, & Host Improvements.

Happy October! We’ve got some exciting stuff for you this week, with the brand new (and much requested feature), deck searching! Thanks everyone for posting your feature suggestions, as well as upvoting for your favorites in our /r/tabletopsimulator thread. There’s still more to come! Public games have also been improved with more options for the host.



Deck searching:
  • Right clicking on a deck then choosing search will create a wheel of cards in the order of the deck.
  • Search can be used to find a card, rearrange, remove, or add to a deck easily.
  • Moving your mouse to the left or right of the wheel will spin it, keeping 8 cards visible at a time.
  • If you want to search the deck privately, bring the deck into your hand before you start the search.
  • The red box shows the division between the top and bottom card.



Host Improvements:
  • Host can now change the color of a player or move them to spectator.
  • Host can now disable color selection for players and manually assign colors.
  • Host can also disable players from editing the notepad.
  • Cleaned up 'Host Options' menu to make each option more clear.


Camera Overhaul:
  • Holding 'ALT' no longer swaps between camera modes (use 'P' to toggle between).
  • Chat messages added when swapping between camera modes.
  • 'WASD' now serves as the pan camera for both modes, instead of duplicating 'Right mouse Button'.
  • 'Arrows keys' now rotates the camera just like 'Right mouse Button'.


3rd Person Camera (Default):
  • Default camera now controls almost identically to a MMO camera.
  • 'WASD' pans the focus point and 'Right Mouse Button' orbits the camera around that point.


1st Person Camera:
  • Controls just like a spectator free cam in a FPS style game.
  • 'WASD' moves your location and 'Right Mouse Button' rotates the view.
  • 'Space Bar' makes the camera rise and 'CTRL' makes the camera lower (slowed down).


Hover Tooltip:
  • Now using new UI with dynamic fonts with black outline.
  • Hides properly when the UI is hidden with 'f12'.


General Improvements:
  • Alt zoom now works when rotating the camera with 'Right Mouse'.
  • Object highlighting will be a lot less pixelated at higher video settings (MSAA now works on highlighting).
  • Chat no longer blocks picking up objects through it.
  • When dealing out the entire deck to multiple people, one card will no longer stay on the table.
  • Keyboard menu layout revamped in new UI similar to the controller (text should be much more readable).


Fixes:
  • Fixed issue causing server browser to break if you searched for friends.
  • Fixed issue with reseting cards that are layered.
  • Fixed cleaning up promoted players when they are disconnected.
  • Fixed flipping wider cards by hovering over them made them hit the table.

Update v2.8 Custom Card & Alt Zoom Improvements

The main focus this week was to get unique card backs that has been requested for quite some time. Another thing we wanted to do was fix some card bugs that have been in the game since the beginning. So we’re happy to be able to add some new features and also fix some annoying issues!

If you haven’t yet, be sure to visit our sub-Reddit to upvote for your favorite requested feature or add in your own request.



Custom Card Improvements:
  • Unique card backs are now supported (each card in your deck can have a different back without merging).
  • Select 'Unique Backs' in the importer, then place your back images onto the card template so they match their face image.
  • Revamped card slicing to be more accurate, so that pieces of card don't visually bleed into each other.

Alt Zoom Improvements:
  • Alt zoomed objects will no longer be cut off on the side of the screen.
  • Alt + scroll wheel is much improved and properly scales the zoom level.
  • Alt + scroll wheel now zooms in the proper direction with up being zoom in.



General Improvements:
  • Fixed the flicker card bug for hosts (card would flicker when in a hand).
  • Custom Model now supports normal maps (greatly enhances the bump and lighting on your models).
  • Right Click/Contextual menu will no longer clip off the screen.
  • Tutorial has been revamped with the new UI and updated to include the newer missing features.
  • Improved smoothness of the controller's pointer.

Fixes:
  • Fixed issue with the contextual menu not working on Custom Dice.
  • Fixed issue with white text/numbers on metal dice for clients.
  • Fixed sideways settings for a single card not saving.
  • Fixed issue with grid sync axis not saving properly by overriding to true.
  • Fixed alt zoom messing up camera distance.
  • Fixed rotation bug for held objects in green hands for certain tables.

Early Access Review
This was by far one of the best games I have ever played up until recently. I don't have a problem with the game itself, but rather the ♥♥♥♥ty community/players involved. There are 2 HUGE issues that lie within this games community.

#1) Greifers/Trolls - This game is riddled with them. Its so easy to just take cards from someones hand, or throw pieces around while playing a game such as chess or dungeons and dragons. There used to be a TON of unlocked card game servers (I.E. Uno, Blackjack, Poker, Texas Hold'em, Yu-Gi-Oh, Cards against Humanity, Magic the Gathering etc.) and they were always ruined by some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥(s) that would sit around for a bit and act like they were playing seriously, and then they would just start grabbing others cards, ♥♥♥♥ing with the decks, or just ignoring their turn. Sure the admins would ban these people, but it would ALWAYS happen, and I'm still convinced this is to blame for the lack of servers now. The same type of people will host games that seem legit, and when you join, the board will be some sort of disguisting/scary/♥♥♥♥ed up picture. I have joined countless servers that had a normal name such as "Chess" , "Uno" , "Blackjack" etc. only to find that the board is a photo of goatese, a mutilated corpse, naked old women, a scary face, or something else thats "WTF?!" worthy. Not to mention the custom decks will be the same thing. The back of the card would be normal to whatever card game you're expecting to play, but when you draw them in your hand and turn them around, they'll be, like stated above, some sort of ♥♥♥♥ed up photo(s).


#2) Servers - Okay now this is just as bad, if not worse than the trolls/greifers. When i first started playing a few weeks ago, sure there were a ton of locked servers, and some of them had vulgular/racist names, but there was still a very good amount of open, legit servers playing exactly what they stated in the game mode/name of the game. Whenever I browse servers now, 98% of them are locked. This is especially annoying for admins who start normal games, and lock the server up as soon as a few people join, so you end up seeing an Uno server (or anything like it) with 3/8 people locked. I feel this has something to do with the plethora of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s who play this game in an attempt to ruin it for others. Now out of all of those servers that ARE actually locked, almost (with the exception of 1 or 2) all of them have stupid/vulgular names. You'll see names such as "♥♥♥♥ers" , "♥♥♥♥♥♥s here <3" , "Big ♥♥♥♥ cheese" or anything in between. Its incredibly frustrating because these people are just wasting space on the server browsing list. Due to these things, I personally have only come across 3-4 unlocked servers (that are vacant) at any given time actually playing a game as stated. Half of the games being played I dont know how to play, but I digress.

So all in all, this is an amazing game. I give props to the dev's for being so active among the better half of the community on the Beserk forums and on Reddit. I really do love this game, and I spent a few late nights having an amazing time for hours just a few weeks ago! I cant even play this game for 20 minutes these days. Like I said above, this game is amazing, and I have no problem with it at all. I just hate the community. If you're willing to take a risk with this game, then by all means go for it, and good luck to you. But if you're expecting a consistant amount of fun, you'll be greatly disappointed (unless of course you enjoy trolling/greifing).

To clarify, this is an engine to play board games. You can play almost any game you can think of. There have been weekly or at least monthly updates, and they keep adding more features the community requests. I had one issue with the workshop not syncing, and the devs actually worked with Valve to get the issue resolved quickly.

The only problem for new players, is finding games to join. You need to look for groups that host TTS games. An easy one is Tabletop Simulator Club (look for that group in Steam Groups).

Once you play a few games you will realize how great this engine/sandbox is, and if you find a few people to play online with, you will have hours of entertainment.

Last comment, I had to chance to meet the developers at PAX Prime, and they both seemed extremely nice. Can't see where they take TTS next, or their next project.

Should you get Tabletop Simulator

Yes, you should

Why you ask?


• You can play a limitless amount of games
with your homies.
• The game you want to play not on the list?
Someone has probably modded it in
• It's 100% Interactive
• You can make domino contraptions!
• Physics!

And last but not least...
• You can flip the table! (Can be disabled)

Seriously though, this game is a blast, buy it.

Should you pick this up. #3 reasons for 3 different types of people

online boardgame players-love to play your games but want a little bit more flexiblity as if you really were there, browser games of chess and other IPs are great but lack the player control to do what you want.

Tabletop Roleplayers-whether it be D&D, GURPS, or some other rule system, these games are hard to put to put into the digital world and if so the software is generally only for you to watch and let the DM move everything, and you can actually build 3d dungeons ( https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bi5dkk6CIAAwhGt.png:large )

Social players-its great to be able to chat over a game, specially when you really dont care about the outcome of the game, in normal games you are forced to make moves till the game is over, in this if you just want to sit with your coffee using the voice chat while you throw marbles and the rpg kit pieces you are free to while at the same time laughing at how bad of an aim you have.

overall this is a great tool if you want to just play in a sandbox and do what you want, there is a single player mode that you can spawn anything in or take it to the online side for fun with friends, this actually bridges the gap for some of my friends some that like shooting games, some that dont but everyone can sit around a boardgame and have some fun.
