    Dev Diary #176 What comes after 1.7

    QoL updates are the ones where I forget to be hyped beforehand but it's definitely those I look back on with the most love ❤️

    RESOLVED Cannot log in

    I had to play as a guest when I was trying out an experimental branch and now I would like to play on my own account. Which seems not possible anymore. I am now logged as "Guest1234" I think and I found no "Log out" button. However, I suppose the Link button under the Profile tab should be used in that way? When I enter my age (why?), email and password, this comes up I checked both my email (yes, it's the only one I use without a typo) and password. Could log in to Bohemia site with it. It was the same in my password manager. Still didn't work. So I changed it. Again, logged into my account on the Bohemia site but the game still gives me that popup. I can normally log here on the forum to my Workshop page.

    It's a steam version so thanks a lot! Seems like an easy fix. Will not be able to confirm though, because yesterday was the last time for me to play for a few days. But I do believe it's going to work! Thanks @spiritchaser28

    Dev Diary #172 Bigger ylands

    My computer took about 30 minutes yesterday to launch Chrome, so... 🤔😅 (I smell factory reset incoming 🤫)

    Dev Diary #172 Bigger ylands

    Most players will be interested in the maps getting bigger, but this is a very promising for me! I said on multiple occasions that I play Minecraft quite a lot. By that I did not mean the Java (PC) Edition but the mobile version. By my estimate I have about 200 hours in the PC version and about 1500 hours on mobile. It's more comfortable for me. Inbetween airplane transits, when I'm sleepy, whenever I don't have my computer with me. Also, I'm very average user of computers but I would say I know my way around Androids 😁 Which means that my phones are no way much behind my computers 😄 I didn't find the right reason for me to keep more than Gb on my phone occupied by Ylands app. If it has Exploration? I'm sure it will be amongst the first apps I would install on a new phone. Even with lesser graphics or limited multiplayer 😛 Looking forward to it!

    New Community Warlock Nikki

    Hello again! I've been an Ylander for quite some time, since the end of 2015, but I'm lately more active on the forum than in the game itself. It's actually quite grotesque how quarter of my life had Ylands in it. I remember being quite excited about the update Classy Containers, finally giving us more space to store things than just the ground. I was actually so excited that I started rambling about it to the girl I was just outside with. She had no idea what Ylands was before (of course) 😅 Fast forward few years and we are spending the time in pandemic together with me playing Ylands and her nudging me when I hit the coast on my raft 🌴 I was was upset about some changes to the game (f2p, 1.0 being just a number, focus on minigames, unbaked mobile port) and the reason I played in the past was solely Exploration. I look very optimistically into the future though and if the Exploration is going to be fun to be played even in singleplayer (already fun in multiplayer according to forum members) I may join back in the fun 🎣 The thing I enjoy in Ylands (and universally in any game that allows me to, especially Minecraft) is building and constructing, may it be a house, a road that leads to it, or the story of me figuring out where to put it. I like to slowly grow and see what all am I capable of doing. I like the minivictories of digging up a diamond or dino skull (I'm not sure if either of those is in the game still), of seeing the flowers on my farm grow, of finally putting the last piece of roof in its place, of figuring out how to wire the logic circuit to my doors. The thing I enjoy outside of Ylands is drinking tea in tearooms, drinking coffee in bed and playing some nice card and board games with friends or strangers. I also play some tennis and I currently study psychology in Prague 🍵 And my favorite pun? Oh, that's hard... Have three instead!

    Welcome! I hope the community will treat you right and you will enjoy your time here! 🌅

    Dev Diary #168 Fun with vendors

    Wink, eh? Based on how much you had to hold your tongue on the stream not to say what it is that you work on for the 1.7 and clues that more objectives to complete for Exploration players are coming... I would guess some form of final boss? Perhaps the source of the ylandium mutations all over the ylands? With the new prefabricated Ylands, it could be a great goal to reach and explore the twisted, dark Yland where the biggest danger of all dwells. Maybe locked to be found after you find/craft/solve something on other basic ylands. But I'm just spitballing right now! 😄 But I always like to guess 😁

    Experimental Build for Update 1.6

    I'm unable to give it a try. I managed to update to the Beta, but now it just gives me FATAL LOGIN ERROR : Cannot connect to destination host. Any way how to solve this?

    Dev Diary #167 Fixing Exploration

    Is everyone here on the forum a parent? 😅 Too old for MC communities and here I feel inappropriately young now!

    Dev Diary #167 Fixing Exploration

    I really enjoyed reading this sincere sounding Dev Diary. I'm glad you're still working on Ylands and are actively making changes to restore Exploration. I never left this forum but I have not played as much recently as I did before. Last few updates were just tested by me for one afternoon or two, but I'm really looking forward to 1.6 and 1.7. I may give it a go with a proper new world. This sounds very interesting! I was one of those concerned about transition to f2p and Explore sidetracked by not being in the main game but in the form of a DLC. But this potential new incorporation of Exploration to the free game with "pay if you enjoy" model is promising! I'm really sorry for the loss of a portion of players but I wish the best luck to you and the game. For brighter days of Ylands ☀

    Why I no longer believe in Ylands

    You have to pardon me here, but you're not acting accordingly to that statement. You are indisputably a major influencer regarding Ylands. Yet you made arguably "click-baity" video about "dying game". That video does not provoke any discussion and does not seem very constructive. The only thing it does is that it reinforces this belief which is not very healthy for the game. Even if you're departing (which nobody can stop you from doing and may be understandable), it's not a very "classy" au-revoir from your part. Howgh.

    Why I no longer believe in Ylands

    I would just like to jump into this discussion to wholeheartedly agree with you. Especially the fifth paragraph ("This leads...") is something that I think about a lot in the past few years.

    Dev Diary #161 - New Ship Type

    Thank you for the work you've done here. Your enthusiasm was something that shaped Ylands experience for many people playing and you listened to all concerns and feedback Ylanders offered. You've managed to calmly talk down disputes about the game or in the community itself. You are an important piece of the Ylands world. May your way be paved with tea and cookies 🍪 PS: The new ship looks very nice! If I decide to try out the new Exploration, it may be my home vessel 🌅

    hrad Jitkov (Jitkov castle)

    Amazing! I really like this realistic castle 🏰 If I was ever to build or create something similar (that means realistic European middle age castle) where should I learn the basics? Is there any interesting online source from which I can learn all the necessary parts of castle, how were they build, used etc.? I'm looking for some resource better than a childs book about knights (ehm, not that I would not like them still! 😁) and less complicated than engineering and true architectonic plans. Where did you learn? 🙂

    Dev Diary #159 - Ylands Creators Competition Winners

    Congrats to all winners! Especially to @Spyler.X, @Christal and of course @Mello1223! I always like to see your creations. Special shout out to @Spyler.X who participated even in the first ever Ylands building completion partly organized by me. Nice to see that you won something substantial this time! 😄

    Wooden house with throne

    Yes, I hope that I got better at building in Ylands over the years 😅 My biggest leap was probably my brother pointing out once for me that I still build like I was in Minecraft even though it's Ylands. Very big grid in my head even though I can shrink it and detail it more with both shape and textures.

    Wooden house with throne

    It´s not so big or so amazing, but it´s my first "bigger" build I did in Ylands, so I think I can share this with you.

    I was forced to remove this post...

    @Myrik Greene @Marci Magyar @Aleš Ulm @Adam Snellgrove @Khanecz @TomasGestinger @NaruTheHuman I find it hard to believe how bad is Chinese Tencent communicating about a big problem. And very very infuriating that they do it under Ylands name. PS: Just to be clear, I know that pretty much nobody of you tagged can do anything about it. I just want you to see this. I don't think the cooperation with Tencent was any good idea.

    Dev Diary #149 - Script Module

    More than month of silence about "Exploration Update" and now another Dev Diary about Editor Improvements.

    Does BI actually want us to play this game?

    I wholeheartedly agree with this.

    Dev Dairy #144 - New Direction for Exploration

    Soon in 1.5: - Rhinos now have silly hats! - Editor improvements (more Explore updates soon, stay tuned) PS: I trust you, this is just a nervous joke 😅

    Dev Dairy #144 - New Direction for Exploration

    It may be a far out guess, but I sense that something is hiding under those clouds on the west side of the map O_o Other than that, I'm glad to see @Aleš Ulm at helm and I hope for Ylands that will entertain me once again. Fingers crossed and good luck to all involved, be it devs or players.

    An awkward message from a longtime fan

    Waiting for substantial Explore news and updates feels just like waiting for The Winds of Winter from G.R.R. Martin. 🙃 Soon. For a past few years it feels.
