Changelog 2015-01-01: No more Java issues, new LUA events, bugfixes

A new status update as well as a first preview video of the new version are now available!
  • First of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL USERS!

    A new update is available, which does not bring very much content, but a lot of important changes!

    First of all, an important change concerning Steam is done: The game is delivered with an own JVM now. This means that it does not matter anymore which Java version is installed on your computer. Even if no Java is installed at all, that should be no problem.
    Please not that this change only affects Windows, on MacOS, you simply need to install the JDK.
    We will add this for the standalone at a later time.

    Apart from that, we added new LUA objects and events, for example events when players interact with chests. Effectively you can now restrict players to steal items from other players chests now via LUA scripts.

    We are also updating our basic area protection script right now (so that objects, constructions and chests are now also protected), it will be available within the next hours (unfortunately, the release of the area protection script is delayed. It can't take very long until it is ready, please be patient).
    This is another important step forward to prevent griefing.

    Last but not least this update contains several smaller changes and some important bugfixes. See the full changelog below.

  • Hello,

    the full-screen is not working for me;
    * I started the game (after update), selected full screen, the main window closes, but program is still running. (I hear the music and the process is still running)
    * Deleted the '', selected full screen again, same problem, window closes / disappears, process and sound still running.

    Its not a big deal for me, as I can set resolution and the game still works fine.
    If you need some log-file, tell me how and I reproduce error, and post log.
