Version beta/update-75 and 75a in Sunrise Crater
Source: http://discord.gg/xveESFj
Summer is here! And with summer comes plenty of fun new objects, fixes, and a heatwave that has melted all the snow in the city.

NOTE: The heatwave does not have any negative effects to sims, objects or pets. It is mostly visual.

Update 75
- Summer is here! A heatwave has melted all of the snow in the crater, and we've introduced some new objects to help you deal with the heat. More info in the next message!

Engine:
- Self moving objects now use interpolation to move buttery smooth, instead of stuttering about!
- Affects carpools, whacket-ball, duck, bubbles, roaches, mice, robot factory and (???).
- Preliminary work to interpolate movement between container slots.
- Fix a bug where the game could crash when switching properties.
- Global Tuning: Tuning that is sent as soon as the player logs in, and is available in city view.
- Tuning Presets: Tuning that can be applied as part of an ingame timed event. This can include tuning for motives, object payouts, skill speed and more - and allows all of these things to be automatically changed while the server is running.
- (part of work towards object upgrades)
- Admin API for Events. (should make things easier on other M.O.M.I. )
- Tuning changes while the server is running now immediately update any lots that are open. (fixes dynamic payouts not updating til a lot restart)
- Objects *inside* objects that move often will no longer update shadow maps. Fixes lag holding stacks of plates.
- Hidden objects (like the go here destination) no longer update shadows, which caused a stutter.
- Fix object shadows when shadows for surrounding lots are enabled. (complex shaders toggle)
- BBCode can no longer be escaped from user input using backslash.
- Preparation for discord integration.

Scripting:
- VM Snap to Routing Slot can now snap to other floors, if you try hard enough.
- FSOAbortAllInteractions can now instantly cancel the idle interaction.
- "Go Here" can now include an interaction parameter
- The carry animation can now be reset separately from all other animations, without playing one.
- Added "FSOAccurateDirectionInTemp0" TSO call mode. Returns a direction from -180 to 180, in the range -32768 to 32767.

Update 75a
- Fixes to the new objects when moving them between lots.
- Water Balloons can now be thrown on hills.
- When a player hits a trap, they now immediately lose the water balloon they were holding. If the game is started on elimination mode, they lose all lives.
- Multifloor targeting: Interactions, Go Here and Object Movement can now be done across all visible floors, rather than just the top. (build tools are unchanged)
- Lot Category Improvements: Objects with specific category limitations now show them in the catalog. Attempting to buy them shows a warning (that can be dismissed)
