Announcement Changelog 2015-06-16: Journal (ingame tutorial), new lamps, bugfixes

We've posted an important announcement regarding the current situation and the future of the game: Announcement

  • Changelog 2015-06-16: Journal (ingame tutorial), new lamps, bugfixes

    Hi folks! A small update is available, introducing a new ingame journal, which contains a small tutorial (first steps and explanation of the inventory and craftingmenu). This should be helpful for new players, but in the future, we will also expand the journal step by step (for example, it will contain your blueprints, or serveradmins will be able to add own custom pages to it etc).

    Apart from that, we added several new lamps and a chandelier. And - as usual - a lot of bugs have been fixed, e.g. the "dummy player" bug in multiplayer. Maybe you will also notice the new chat, now it has a background (transparency can be changed in the settings) and linewrapping.

    Last but not least we added a new Lua function to create 3D texts in the world (i.e. holographic texts, comparable to the player nametags).

    We're btw. also still working on the biome update, so stay tuned ;)

  • Oh! Good thing I can still access this forum because hearing about this update is awesome. New lights!

    That journal sounds awesome. Should be fun seeing how that evolves over time, even seeing the blueprint side of things with the buildings. Server admis shall be able to add custom pages to it? Things like posters, text, and etc? I do hope that's how books in general shall work because that would be something I want to take advantage of also. All these nice features :thumbsup:
