Changelog 2014-09-08: Chests, Trashcans and much more

A status update and another preview video of the new version are now available!
  • Hey folks!


    It's about to happen again: A new update ist available! :)


    This update brings some new and quite important features! The most important feature is the ability to create chests, which serve as a storage for your items. There are currently several different chests available, some wooden chest, a metal chest and also a wooden barrel. Apart from that, some of the regular furniture also offer storage space, for example the sidetable, desk and some kitchenets. You can also use the "Gear" function of a camping tent now.


    Next, this update brings trashcans, which are used for the disposal of items, and also a new craftingstation, an anvil. In the same vein, we changed some of the recipes; for example, if you want to create a pickaxe now, you first need to forge the head of the pickaxe as a single component, and then combine it with a stick to get the final item.


    Last but not least, this update brings more new objects: For example a ceiling fan, different grates and rails, a new bed and a new chair.


    Apart from the new content, we fixed several bugs (e.g. the tent context menu works now again) and did some other minor changes.
