Hello PC Builders,

Some very annoying issues popped up in the previous update, so this update today is to squash a bunch of them. This is what is fixed in this patch:

  • Fixed RGB lighting options being disabled in various cases.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the UI to break when trying to purchase extra workbenches.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the piping UI to break after using the remove bend option.
  • Fixed an issue that blocked you from disconnecting the cable on the Raijintek Ereboss CPU Cooler.
  • Fixed an issue that would block installing a reservoir in the NZXT H700i when using the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XTREME WATERFORCE WB 11G GPU.
  • Added the missing front 140mm fan slot in the be quiet! Dark Base 700 case.

Happy Building,

What’s Next?

Work is now underway to add a feature that we get requested a lot, the ability to swap the mouse, keyboards and monitors used on the workbenches. Our original workshop environment was never designed to handle such a feature so as part of this implementation we are having to rebuild this environment which has added to the work quite a bit but it should be worth it to allow further workbench customization via swapping peripherals.

While this work is ongoing we are continuing to work to bring further new partners to the game in the future to further expand the range of parts available.

Happy Building,
