    • Changelog 2017-02-13: Grinder, Tanning rack and more

      Hey folks! A new update is available now, it introduces some new items and especially new crafting stations: a grinding station, a tanning rack and a spinning wheel. These are fully interactive crafting stations, i.e. there is no GUI, so you interact with them directly (like the smelting furnace).



      The grinding station is used to crush stone to gravel (in the future it will be used to crush many other items as well), the tanning rack is used to turn rawhides (which can be obtained from animals) into leather (a hunting knife is required), and the spinning wheel is used to spin a yarn (from wool, cotton or hemp fibers).

      In addition, we also did some smaller changes to the game (e.g. when destroying a chest full of items, these items will spawn in the world instead of disappearing), polished some existing features and fixed some bugs. As usual, find the full changelog attached ;)

      Stay tuned!

    • O.M.G!!! The resizable log items are a game changer for building (almost)! Sweet. A little rough when enlarged, but still. THANK YOU! Now how about a resizable arc? I thought you meant the block were resizable, but it's just the other elements. Anyway Thanks!

      Looks like the new crafting stations will be fun in survival mode too. I'll be putting a spinning wheel in my creative build also, ;)

      :thumbsup:

      Yeah, I was wondering what that was but I finally found the new construction object. I can finally build a log cabin!! :) :) :)

      THANKS a bunch to @red51 and dev's you guys make our (players) days ^^ <3
    • I encountered an odd bug, but when I quit the game, I noticed a 7:50 p.m. (Eastern Time) update was downloading, and when I got back into the game, I couldn't replicate it. I'll mention it here anyways in case.

      It happened when I accidentally Shift + double-click on any item in a chest or crate to move it to my inventory. For some odd reason, a version of that item, slightly smaller than is visible in the inventory, replaced the white pointer. To make matters worse, if I replicated the procedure, I'd have the items superimposed on each other. At one point, I had the stone block 21 and tomato both superimposed as the new pointer (see image right). The amounts were also visible but garbled amongst each other. Returning to the main menu not only did not fix the problem, but the pointer remained on the swanky new backdrop.

      The Up/Down arrows are working in reverse when navigating all the bench menus. Up goes down and down goes up.

      I don't know if this is an accident: While I love the new woodlog, I noticed its width is twice that of a woodbeam, yet the maximum/minimum length of both are the same. I also noticed the log was actually a hexadecagon (16 sides), and not a true circle. Nothing major, but it would definitely have been nice to have a true circle made from it.

      That's it for now. Loving the game.
    • Thanks for the feedback :)

      Hope to see some wheat for the grinder in the near future
      You can bet on it! ;)

      Or a larger one for the slaves like in Conan
      Hehe, would be nice to see a bunch of people in multiplayer pushing a huge grinder :D

      But what de you mean by "reset" key?
      That's the key which resets the rotation of an element (by default it's backspace, but can be changed in the settings). If you hold the shift-key (or more precisely, the resize key) while pressing the reset key (backspace), you can reset the size :)

      Oh that's definitely planned, in the future, all block shapes will be resizeable.

      Not sure what ambient occlusion is. It's been awhile since I've uploaded any Rising World because the lag got so bad I threw in the towel
      Ambient occlusion is responsible for these small shadows in corners or edges. Although it has a noticeable effect on the framerate, so if you have performance issues, you can disable it. To improve the performance you can also set "graphic_logarithmic_depth_buffer" to false in your config.properties file. If the framerate only drops when it rains, you could consider to disable weather effects (by setting "game_weather_enabled" in the config.properties to false).

      This bug should be fixed now :)

      Hmm... I will check out what's going on there!

      Well, actually there are never "true circles" (because video hardware renders triangles only), so the only thing one could do to smooth the cylinder is to increase the amount of faces/sides. But increasing the faces has an impact on the performance, so it's important to keep the max. amount of triangles as low as possible (especially when it comes to construction elements). 16 sides seem to be sufficient in most cases, although I have to admit that some additional sides/faces might be preferable when enlarging the element^^
