Announcement Changelog 2014-12-13: Linux support, serverbrowser and smaller changes

We've posted a status update with some first screenshots of the new terrain generation. There is also a new update available for the Java version!

  • Changelog 2014-12-13: Linux support, serverbrowser and smaller changes

    An update is available, finally introducing Linux support (for Steam, standalone already supported Linux) as well as a new feature: A serverbrowser, which helps you to find a multiplayer server (only dedicated servers are listed). Please not that this is a work-in-progress feature and will be further improved the next time.

    Apart from that this update also contains a few smaller changes, for example favorite blocks are now saved, and you can also specify start parameters for the game.

    Last but not least a few bugs have been fixed, especially a nasty multiplayer bug causing "Connection Errors".

    Feel free to give us feedback in the forums, and please report any bugs you find.

    Bugfix 2014-12-14:
    • [Change] Reduced frequency of animal idle sounds
    • [Change] Server in the serverbrowser are now colored red when they are using a different version of the game
    • [Bugfix] Fixed problem when loading a world (or connect to multiplayer) with lots of animals (also new dedicated server files required!)
  • I agree, the frequent updates are definitely a major plus for those of us following your progress.

    It's a small detail, but it goes a long way towards showing all of us that you are constantly putting effort into this game every day, and not just banging your heads against a brick wall and staring at the ceiling like one studio in particular that I will not name here.

    can we get a road map devs? of what is to be seen in the next update?

    Maybe.. we will think about it ;) I personally don't like it to say which feature will be in the next update exactly, because sometimes not everything during development goes according to plan, and we change priorities while working on new updates. And we really hate it to delay updates because an announced feature is not ready yet^^
    Perhaps we can add some kind of a "long term roadmap", containing the planned features for the next updates

    Das finde ich auch. Immer das wichtigste zuerst und nicht an etwas binden was noch warten kann. :thumbsup:
