Changelog 2014-08-10: SSAO, new objects and a few bugfixes

A new status update as well as a first preview video of the new version are now available!
  • The next update is available :) It mainly introduces - as announced previously - a new effect: Screenspace ambient occlusion. Please note that we're still working on this effect, so if you find any inconsistencies, it's helpful for us if you report it. You should also note that the effect is a heavy weight on the performance, so you probably have to disable it on weaker systems (btw., the effect is disabled by default, you have to enable it in the settings).

    Apart from that the update also contains new objects, especially some kitchenettes: Each element has a size of 1.5 blocks, so you're generally able to place them seamless next to each other (using the grid for objects [press G] is very useful in this case).
    In addition, this update also contains some smaller tables, a desk and a new type of bed. In the future, you'll be also able to interact with some of the kitchenettes and the desk.

    Here is, as usual, the full changelog:
