I have started work on the new system for fetching skins and because I'm recreating it I wanted to add some new features.

So what the new system allows me to do is the following:

  • Updating skin data after emails are sent.

    • This should fix some of the problems there are today where some data is incorrect.

  • Downloading of images, to make sure the skin images are never lost.

  • Fetching Twitch drops.

  • Support for more currencies.

A little preview of the new features

Twitch Drops

Facepunch has started using Twitch drops more and therefore I have started implementing a way for people to subscribe to both normal Steam skins and Twitch drops.

The new features are still a long way away, but I will update the blog when I have more news.
