  • Changelog 2014-09-22: New blockforms, lootable corpses etc.

    Hi folks! :)

    First of all, if you have expected the extended construction system which was announced previously: It's unfortunately not available yet. We're still working on it, but are confident that we're able to bring it to you with the next update! :)

    However, let's focus on the actual update: First of all, it brings two new blockforms, corner elements for ramps. There are still corner elements for stairs missing, but they'll be available shortly.

    The next interesting feature is the ability to loot dead bodies: When you die, you leave a corpse that "contains" your old inventory. So you're able to get your painstakingly collected loot back.
    After a given amount of time (configurable in multiplayer), your corpse despawns and leaves a small cross at your grave (which can be removed of course).

    Apart from the new features, we also did some changes: Now objects have collision while placing, so objectplacement becomes more easier.
    Another change concerns the messages when someone invites you into a group (multiplayer-only): The dialog has been completely reworked and looks much better now.

    Last but not least, this update contains - as usual - some bugfixes. A few critical bugs have been removed, as well as some "cosmetic problems".
