Will you give us some treats during the waiting time? Like a diary or similar? I would like to hear some updates about the progress, planned features, etc. in regular intervalls. Maybe not daily or weekly but bi-weekly or at least monthly would be great.
That's definitely planned We're still thinking about something like a blog. Apart from that, we'll at least post some announcements about the current state from time to time (maybe every month), although it may take a few weeks until the first announcement is available, since we're currently spending a lot of time with some core mechanics, mainly the world generation (and until it's done, there isn't really much to show)^^
But if you need support @red51 especially for the time till the release and the fact that the visibillity of RW is lower. I wouldn't hesitate to open my paypal wallet even if i already own the game.
Thanks a lot for your support! We were thinking about something like Patreon, but I'm really not sure about that. It doesn't feel right to ask people for money if they've already paid for the game For the time being, we're trying to run more sales on Steam, since there are still many people who have wishlisted the game (even though the wishlist is shrinking since October, but
I would hope that we are still able to build with fine details and set the exact sizes of pieces, use blocks, etc.
This will definitely still be possible While we want to tweak the building system (being able to resize blocks, better snapping of elements, UI for the precision parameters etc) and fix some of its current issues (e.g. problems with the modular snapping), we are not going to restrict it in any way. So yes, you will still be able to set exact sizes for every element.
That rough looking fence worries me if all the planks and beams will be rough hewn like that
Oh, the "clean" or "even" planks and beams (like the current ones) will still be available The crude planks on the screenshots will just be part of the early game content (so when starting a new game in survival, you only have access to crude planks & beams, until you're able to craft a modern workbench/sawbench)
