There are lots of great improvements coming soon to Sansar, and we wanted to share a bit about what’s coming next.
Our latest update, the Terrain Release, lets you sculpt worlds. Now you can shape terrain in Sansar to create unique landscapes for your experiences. The Terrain Release also added new scripting power, running avatars, new opportunities for selling items in the Store, and more. It’s been great to see how people are using the Terrain Release - please keep sharing!
