Devlog: A Whole new Category of Decorations

The team behind Lightyear Frontier is here to tell y’all ’bout a new way to decorate, comin’ with our first update!

Howdy, exofarmers! We reckon y’all have been eagerly awaiting us to share more details about the Making it Home update, heading your way soon! Well, today’s the day, ’cause we’re fixing to do just that with a brand spanking new devlog!

New Decorations for Your Farm

We had the pleasure of chatting with our artists Christina and Jonas about some of the most exciting new content coming with the update – new decorations!

Howdy, Christina and Jonas! Who are y’all, and what do you do?

C: Hellooo, I’m Christina! I’m a combination of a 3D and 2D artist. I primarily make props, but sometimes I get the chance to work on some concept art.

J: Heyo, Jonas here. I’m a bit of a 3D generalist, but most of my time right now is spent making constructs, mech parts, or various shaders (basically materials with nice effects).

We’re throwing in a whopping 57 new decorations to the game, and we’re fixing to introduce a whole new category for Wall-Mounted Decorations! What’s been your role in bringing these to life?

C: My biggest responsibility has been to create some walls to allow for hanging decorations to be placed and to section off parts of the player’s farm if needed. Once I got some basic walls done, I helped make some of the decorations themselves!

J: I’ve pretty much just pumped out as many decorations as possible within the allotted time frame. I’ve mostly focused on more techy stuff just to keep the sci-fi element of our game present, but I’ve also done some more traditionally farmy stuff!

Do y’all have a personal favorite among all these new decorations?

C: I love the aesthetic of the dartboard that Jonas made! I guess they’re kind of nostalgic and remind me of summers spent with my family, so I have a soft spot for them. As for one that I made myself, I think it’s the set of posters. They’re silly and hand-drawn!

J: I think the Fire Extinguisher is my favorite. Can’t quite put my finger on why. It looks cute, I guess! Maybe it reminds me a bit of F.L.U.D.D. from Super Mario Sunshine.

Lastly, are there any decorations y’all are hoping to add in the future?

C: Personally, I’m very excited for neon signs. I think they would take our players’ farms to the next level!

J: While not a top priority right now (things can change in the future), I hope we can get house interiors into the game at some point. That would open the door (pun intended) for a lot of fun, new decorations!

We’re excited to see what y’all are gonna create with these new decorations! Those farms are gonna look downright dandy. Swing your mech on over to our Discord server and let us know what decorations y’all are most excited about!

Happy decorating, exofarmers!
