    Just updated and just found a bug with the UI screens. This might be as it was built on the previous version, but the objects on the UI screen are in the wrong place when you go into preview also they seem to be enlarged.

    • Coin Shop Button and Confirmation Button added to the UI Asset Library
    • New advanced node: Shop Placeholder Item node that works in conjunction with the Coin Shop Button UI asset
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These features were previously mentioned in the trial release notes, and now they are not mentioned in the official release notes. Have you decided to retract their addition or forgot to mention them here ?

    Thanks for the update @Sean Buildbox. Does this work with MacOS Big Sur now? I've been thinking of upgrading from Catalina, but wasn't sure if Buildbox was compatible yet.

    Great stuff:) A found an odd bug you need to look into. The teleporters are fantastic but they don´t work correctly after over a certain radius. I can send in a bug report.

    The shop feature was something that they had to scrap out of this release. My guess is that they will bring it back in upcoming releases.

    Major bug! Assets disappear in asset panel when organizing in Group folders. When re-open Buildbox some assets not showing up in their respective Group folders. Although assets not showing in assets panel, they are still in the game...

    @Sean Buildbox requested(name, value, sender) function is broken in 3.3.7 - https://www.buildbox.com/help/buildbox-3-api-reference/script/#requested
    No matter what you have for the code in the requested function it always returns this(the node that the attribute is connected to) when every you try to get some value using this.attribute(...)
    I reported the bug when 3.3.7 was in beta.
    It probably not used by anyone but me I guess, I decided to try it out and used it in my Shop System and with the release of 3.3.7 the requested function was broken.
    I update the shop to not use the requested function, so I'm all good. But just had to mention that the requested function is still broken.
