    Things Ylands could do better

    Totally agree. But I would say terrain modification in general. Currently I try avoid digging or levelling ground around my base as much as possible since you can't smooth terrain (in SP). If you want to cover up a hole you dug you can never make it look normal again. Proper terraforrming tools would be great. Maybe a tool to smooth terrain and another to flatten ground at an angle. Also I would also love it if "grass" would grow on dirt. By grass I just mean the green texture on the dirt. If the colour of the dirt would slowly change to an even green (with a smooth fade) it would be great. Anyway, I cant wait for the 0.11 update.

    A day building in Ylands

    Nevermind then. Hopefully whoever placed the protective barrier reads this and disables it.

    A day building in Ylands

    That looks amazing! I wish I was that good. Also, have you placed the blueprint of that house down in Energritz_'s server? If so could you please disable the protective barrier (if you aren't going back on to finish it) so that we could clear the area (dig away the mound and cut down trees) and finish it. It would look awesome on the island completed!

    doctor cheater

    I was playing happily on a public server (Energritz_'s AU/NZ server) when I encountered this "Docteur" character. At first he seemed fine. He came to my place and I gave a bit of food and grass clothes. However, shortly later he began ramming my ship anchored near the shore with a ship I later discovered was stolen. Luckily, their was no damage and he quickly left after I started shooting at him. Unfortunately, my friend wasn't so lucky. Docteur rammed his ship and placed dirt (causing chaos and lagg on the server) and got his ship stuck. After a couple of server crashes/resets we managed to free the ships. Docteur meanwhile left (hopefully not destroying stuff elsewhere). It was very annoying and the water is now mucked up. I think Doctuer should be banned for a while as he clearly was aiming to be annoying and has affected a few servers now. Anyway, just remember him and if you see him, kill him.

    KNOWN ISSUE Seed Box Bug - endless seeds

    I know this is a old post but I encountered this same bug just recently. Clearly it hasn't been fixed When I equip seeds that are in the seed box (the seeds go on the hotbar thing all the way on the right), the number of seeds does not change in the hotbar (but still goes down in the box) meaning that you don't realize how many seeds you have until the planting "fails". (You have no more seeds but it still shows seeds in the hotbar) It's not a particularly annoying bug but I thought I should make sure it wasn't forgotten.

    Sneak Peek #52

    I am really looking forward to this update. Proper editor scripting will be amazing . Also, I was looking at the roadmap and noticed something. Technically, 0.10 has already been released back in 2016. And the update was called "Extended Editor". It's very fitting that the 'new' 0.10 update will be focused on the editor as well .

    Building Contest -- Which design should win?

    Thanks everyone! I'm so surprised I got so many votes for the truck. The building competition was heaps of fun! Thanks for making it possible @RedEagle_P1. I can't wait to see what people make for the next contest.

    Why does the game named ylands?

    Ylands is pronounced like "islands" just spelt with a 'Y'.

    P1 Building Contest! #1

    I would love to be there but according to your clock thing it will be about 6 in the morning for me . Also when I tried driving my truck the suspension lifted heaps and so it looks kinda weird... (I'm not sure if that's a bug or not but I think it should stay how it looks in the editor)

    P1 Building Contest! #1

    I am IN! Hello, Here is my submission. A 1930's Ford Truck (kind of). This was my first time using the editor for me. I don't normally create fancy structures but I thoroughly enjoyed making this truck. The truck houses one small ylandium engine under the hood on a large car chassis so it's not the fastest vehicle on the road. Also, the only way to charge it is by using the remote charging thingy because you can't access the engine. You can also put anything on the back, including another engine if we do have a race . I noticed the same bugs in the editor as WijkAgentAdrie and lunz pointed out. However, I also found that when placing shells (or at least the red/orange/cyan shells) they are always placed facing down even if you rotate them before placing them. Workshop link: https://workshop.ylands.com/asset/481 Screenshots of my truck. (It doesn't really look like a Ford): jjj I used a clay bowl, steel rod and cyan shells to create the wing mirrors. The bull bar was created using the steel rods too. I got a bit carried away and tried to create a garage too From the editor (without the added distractions): Thanks for creating the competition . I really enjoyed creating the truck.

    Age of players

    Well I'm only 17. I expected the age group for Ylands to be much younger. It seems that the active forum members are mainly older (more mature ) players.

    Wow, I feel young. I'm younger then 30. A lot younger to be honest.

    Capture blueprints in creative mode

    I agree. Being able to capture blueprints in creative mode would be very useful. I guessing there must be a reason it's disabled, if so, what is that reason?
