I've noticed a massive lack off communication between the Official Discord Server
and the Total Miner Forums. I know alot of people are missing out on information because they're not in the discord server for whatever reason so I though I'd post an update on here. It's been a long road to multiplayer for TM:PC but we have recently received an announcement that the game is now being worked on again by a new team. I'll post some screenshots of these announcements below:

The first image is an update posted in the Discord server by Steve which gives us some major updates
. Let's take a look..
Well unfortunately it seems Craig is definitely out the game for the moment which is a shame to see but we're lucky to have @Steve
who have now taken on the game under "new guidance." We can see XBL is doing the programming and development side of things and Steve is promoting the game with the marketing/media side of things. There are some people who've been given the Developer role on the Discord that aren't mentioned in this list but may become more public in the future, this includes @Justyn
and Native Function.
The Developers page
on the forums have also been updated.
We're also seeing more testers in the discord server, some old friends have come back to the testing team such as @Auroras Calling
who have made a return.
Okay, here's the fun part. We can monitor the game progress on the Trello link
that Steve has given us. I'll talk you through some of the stuff written on the Trello.
MonoGame port - COMPLETED
Multiplayer (locally hosted)
Mod API Rework - MOVED TO PLANNED ADDITIONS
New audio system/manager - COMPLETED
We can also see some exciting upcoming updates such as Discord support, Linux/Mac support and infinite worlds.
Though we've been told there's no concrete dates yet we have been told it's likely that the first update will be in spring 2020 (between March April and May) or possibly even earlier. Hopefully all of you guys that aren't in the discord now have some idea of what's going on, if you want to keep up with further news you can check on the discord server with the link I put up top, you can also keep your eyes peeled on this thread which I'll update with any information I can get.
