Announcement Changelog 2014-05-15: Cutting grass & new worldgeneration

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

  • Changelog 2014-05-15: Cutting grass & new worldgeneration

    Here it is, the new update! :)

    As we already talked about, it changes the worldgeneration and introduces the ability to cut grass. Find more information here: Cutting grass and new worldgeneration

    Note: Due to the changes in worldgeneration, your current world needs to be converted (of course creating a new world is not affected by this). This happens automatically (you see a notification while loading), but maybe it's required to manually adapt the world at certain places (conversion may lead to flying rocks etc.).
