This week's update was pre-staged because of some real life work obligations. Apologies for any content which was missed in the lag time between staging and deployment here.
Official Game Guru Newshttps://steamcommunity.com/app/266310/discussions/0/1730963192547852809/ - Per synchromesh it appears the long standing 'disappearing model' issue may be resolved. Time will tell!
Also this came out this last week: https://www.thegamecreators.com/post/gameguru-melee-weapons-pack-updated-2
So apparently more updates to the already really decent melee weapons pack were done. They added 6 more melee weapons. Pretty impressive stuff for those who already own it!
Lastly all of the incremental AI updates are here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220075?page=2#msg2606583
We also have our list of winners from the Survey (all of these people got free DLC!):

Free StuffNothing new for free as of this writing.
Third Party Tools and Tutorials
There's some pretty good info in this thread about how to use styleguru, which is a fantastic third party program that can help you customize your Game-Guru menus.

Now the above should really get your attention. Someone put a lot of hard work and care into this but used mostly stock game assets. They have a very good cutscene and HUD, as well as a neatly modified menu. Sets a good standard Game-Guru game-making attempts.

Someone made a kindle e-book with Game-Guru graphics... speaking as someone who's made a kindle book before it's no picnic to arrange those things. I am fairly impressed!
In My Own Works:
Recently this week started work on the 'how to make a desert' walkthrough. It's coming along well though is tricker than I first thought. Here's a screenshot:
This is far from final and sadly the book will only include B&W stills, but regardless, the basic shape is there. There's more grasses, background materials and the like to add but atmospherically speaking it's what I wanted.
I also have this for the Semi-Arid type of desert, but it needs even more work:
I also need to rework my 'how to make a city' section as well, which falls into a similar situation.
