Set Your Start Locations

You’ve worked hard to build a jaw dropping Sagan – now let’s show it off! We’re introducing Start Locations, which will allow you to snap a cover image of your Sagan. But what does that mean exactly? Well, when you open your Sagan, the load screen will now have a thumbnail image of your Sagan when it’s first opened.. When you share your Sagan with friends, family or our Community, they’ll get an email invite with that same thumbnail image at the forefront. Lastly, and most importantly, your Start Location allows you and your viewers to start at that exact location. This helps guide them through your creation so they can experience it in all its glory. 

Be sure to go back to your old Sagan creations and add a Start Location!

Sagan Search Terms & Categories

Ever find yourself exploring the Community with public Sagans and asking, what’s this supposed to be about?! Well, we’ve added Sagan Search Terms and Categories, as well as descriptions that can help expand on what the Sagan is and what it is not. Soon enough, you’ll be able to find specific Sagans based on those categories and tags! Stay tuned for more details in the upcoming Product Updates.
