    Thank you for all your hard work Adam! You definitely rebuild the much needed bridge again with the community and picked up social media in a great way and i hope the team (and new CM) can follow the path you have laid out and keep it on track! It was a real pleasure to meet you and shake your hand (in a time this was still possible end 2019) in person on the 20th bohemia interactive anniversary. All the best in the future Adam! I am sure you have a great path ahead ?

    Dev Dairy #144 - New Direction for Exploration

    Arma runs on the RV (Real Virtuality) engine, and that engine is also at the end of life, for Arma3 they really pushed the engine to it limits. That is comparing apples with pears.

    Dev Dairy #144 - New Direction for Exploration

    @Aleš Ulm wears his hat everywhere even on parties ? Congratulations on being back in saddle again as Project Lead! (And your 10 year anniversary at Bohemia Interactive). I really like the step that was taken to "break up" the game in 2 pieces (creative/exploration) but with that also comes that the focus for both pieces needs to be 50%/50% and as many I also felt that exploration was a bit on the background, which I completely understand as the creative part (free to play) needed all of the attention to become successful and still has a big growing curve! For me personally, as a early day exploration/survival fan of Ylands, this also felt like Exploration did not get most of the attention and felt left behind compared to how creative was developed, but we did get regular updates with new content or features, as a Bohemia Interactive fan i also know the wise words: "never promise but over deliver", and with that i know that on the background a lot will be done but kept secret for as long as possible and eventually exploration would get its steps forward it needs for the future. I guess it is fair to say: that time has come now, after a long time of waiting with just doing a few weeks per "exploration mission" as eventually all locations are known and resources depleted and you start a new exploration map again i really hope this will make the exploration duration a bit longer and enjoyable for the long term? (Edit) Ohh before this gets read in a other way than I mean it, it is all in a "positive way" as some things might be seen as negativity.

    I am definitely excited with this update as it also has the option to play on easy mode or veteran mode with exploration ? And the "farming" looks great! No more stacking up trees/cotton and so on but just planting them 1 by 1 with a nice spacing and lining(bamboo sprout still can be stacked don't know if that is accidentally or intentionally). Started up a new exploration yesterday with the veteran mode, normally within 2 hours I can start exploring with a little boat but now it took a bit longer as I only started off with 3 pieces of cotton on my Yland so needed to do a lot of farming to get enough cotton. With my little boat now ready to sail I will be looking for the new far eastern biome, the 1 biome that I really want to explore to see what grows and lives in that biome!

    Zooms in on the costume and thinks about "go go power rangers" ? Really looking forward to exploring this new biome! Even if it means taking it slowly with the new dangers lurking around.

    Mystery related question

    Good thing with the exploration mode is that you can place markers on the map, I use them especially in the early exploration of the Ylands wenn I don't have enough fighting power or gear yet so I can find the locations in a later stage again.

    I found most of my coal on the 1.0 version on tier 3 Ylands ? be careful as tier 3 Ylands are heavily guarded ?

    It will definitely be a honor shaking your hand and many others from the Ylands team who I have not met personally yet ?

    Dev Diary #107

    Well in those 4 months you have become a veteran! You really gave social media for Ylands a huge boost! All I can say is: it has been a great pleasure looking at all the progress that has been made over the passed few years, I remember back in the early days (first few months in the BI incubator) keeping track of the game and eventually @RaptorM60 got me to play it! Never regret it for 1 day! Congratulations to the entire team, still some challenges ahead as a lot of people (including me) are waiting for a console version, but with the PC and mobile 1.0 release the first milestone is set for the future!
