V0.08B – Memory improvements, new footstep sounds, Fmod implementation, and a bunch of bug fixes!

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we’ve focused on bug fixing and memory improvements and are also really excited to be introducing FMOD audio support. We’ve also improved memory quite a bit and finally got some subsurface scattering rendering on plant leaves.

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub or send them in to
