Update #2 - Modifiers!


Version 1.1.3
Major Changes:
  • 19 New Unique Modifiers! Hidden throughout the world of Jet Island are purple glowing orbs. Each orb unlocks a new modifer! Select your modifier in the main menu before starting a game. Modifiers include new modes such as low-gravity, slow-mo hookshots, and many more!
  • Extreme spin mode! One of my favorite new modifiers allows you to spin, flip, and go upsidedown on walls and loopty-loops! This special mode is only for those with VR legs of steel! Doing backflips at the end of a hookshot swing is a ton of fun!
  • Infinite Jets mode! This modifier has been a requested features. Once this modifier is unlocked, you can more easily explore Jet Island without having to worry about fuel.
  • Super Jets mode! Fly around Jet Island at super extreme speeds! Like 2000mph kind of extreme! This modifier totally changes the game and almost removes all the challenge, but it's super fun!
  • Upside-down World! This modifier flips Jet Island upside-down! Now the sky is down and the ground is up! It feels like a totally new world to explore!
  • Added Delete Profile option to the options menu! This has been a big requested feature. Before it was very difficult to delete a profile and many players needed this since they filled up their profile slots.

Minor Changes:
  • Crossplay with Oculus players fixed! Now Oculus store players can play with Steam players with all the latest updates! In the future if new updates come out sooner on the Steam Store, Steam players will always be able to revert back to the same version as the Oculus store players by selecting "oculuscrossplay" in the Betas tab in the Jet Island properties. This is only required if the version (displayed under Jet Island title) is different for you and your friend on Oculus store.
  • Adjusted stats and how the jet cooldown works.
  • Added a "New Features" list in the main menu to quickly see what new features have been added in the version you're currently playing.
  • Added game verion under the title so you can more easily see the exact verion of the game you are playing.
  • Improved keyboard for creating a new profile! Numbers, spaces, and symbols have been added.
  • Added Unlocked Abilities & Info to the in-game stats screen! Now you can see what abilities you have unlocked and quick instuctions on how to use them.
  • Fixed the charging effect on the gun for the unlocked Auto-Charge gun.
  • Improved drones going through walls under the island. Not 100% perfect, but definitely improved.
  • Increased the time before the crab boss falls after you defeat him.
  • Added a "Switch Profile" button to the main menu.
  • Other small improvements to the main menu.
  • Collision detection improvements.
  • Fixed issue, now you'll raise up a foot when standing on your hoverboard from off the ground. Feels more like you're stepping up onto a floating hoverboard.
  • Made "snap 45" set to default turn mode for all headsets. Now if you're playing for the first time, you can swipe on the trackpad on vive or joysticks on the Rift and WMR to snap turn. This option was already in the game, it's just now activated by default.
