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 v2.7 Memory Optimization & Overall Improvements

This main focus of this patch is on memory optimization, which brings the RAM usage down extensively. This will improve overall gameplay and fix the issues people with less RAM have been having .

Memory Management Overhaul:
  • All content is now dynamically loaded/unloaded on RAM when needed (only the contents on screen are on RAM).
  • Initial load time is now almost instant.
  • Starting size is 0.3 gigs of ram (previously 1.6 gigs).
  • This will allow even larger Mods due to the improved RAM headroom.
  • Trade off is spawned objects must be loaded from the disk which is slightly slower (minor stutter).



Modding Improvements:
  • Brand new jpg compression with much lower files sizes (60% smaller).
  • Overall Mod stability improvements.
  • Reduced memory footprint for mods due to better compression.
  • Resolved many memory leak issues, especially when loading multiple Mods.
  • Improved load times when loading from the cache/drive.
  • Renamed 'URL Images' folder to 'Images' (cleanout old cache and improved the name).
  • Added more chat messages to inform players the progress of Steam Workshop syncing.
  • If special characters are in the file path, the mod save location will be changed to the Game's Data folder.
  • Custom Model has a new object type "Board" (alt zoom does not work on Boards).

Settings Menu:
  • Added a checkbox to enable or disable controller input.
  • Mods can be saved to the Game's Data folder or Documents/My Games (Save in the game folder if your OS username has special characters).
  • Voice chat volume sliders removed because new voice chat uses sound equalizing.



Layered Card Improvements:
  • Highlight now works on card layers properly, highlighting all the cards that will be picked
    up.
  • Multi-pickup and box selection will no longer mess up layered cards when grabbed.
  • Shaking a stack of layered cards will break them apart.
  • Held layered cards will no longer be ripped off into hands if dragged into one.

General Improvements:
  • Alt Zoom now works on locked objects, but ignores board objects.
  • Object rotations are even more accurate when dragging a held object into a hand.
  • Controller keybinds in the launcher are now labeled (Controller).

Fixes:
  • Fixed disabling hands while cards are in them, so they no longer fall through the table.
  • Fixed window mode being stuck on top of everything else even when alt+tabbing.
  • Fixed game resetting settings on first load.
  • Fixed expand arrow on Workshop and save files.
  • Special characters in Usernames will no longer be an issue for Mods.
  • Fixed camera zooming on table when changing color is in FPS camera mode.
  • Fixed download completion percent disappearing when loading directly from one custom mod to another.
  • Added a joystick recenter check to help fix the rotating camera bug (also can disable controller in setting)

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.

Early Access Review
Tabletop Simulator is ideal for all players who are even slightly interested in board games. With a focus on physics sandbox gameplay where you are free to abide by the rules or cheat, playing with friends feels fun and satisfying.

The game is still in beta and I've encountered a few bugs while playing. However, the developpers are really close to the community and listen to feedback. The bugs are being fixed every update and while it's still far from a finished product, it is shaping up really fast.

Pros:
-Physics Sandbox. This is a must for sandbox games lovers.
-Revives the old board games we love and allows you to play online with friends.
-Table flipping. Who wouldn't dream of flipping a table after losing a game of chess?
-Great platform for custom board games. While it doesn't support workshop content or 3d models yet, importing images allows you to create your own games or play games you love that weren't included with the purchase.
-Great looking models and shaders.

Cons:
-Needs some polishing, currently has noticeable bugs and can be ressource heavy at times.
-Does not include liscenced games (obviously, but unfortunate. Although, once again, custom content).
-Not as fun without friends to play with. While you can play with strangers and still have a lot of fun (I get headaches from laughing too much playing games with strangers), not everyone will enjoy it as much as playing with people they know. I would recommend grabbing the game with friends if you can.
