CHANGELOG

Playful Platform - 05/09/2019 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Playlands - Enjoy our new communal area with fun(ny) mini-games and bling yourself out in our spiffy Fashion Room. By playing mini-games you’ll increase your personal level and thus be able to obtain even more exclusive attire!
  • Support for mobile devices – By saving your scenario as 'universal', it can be played both on PC and mobile versions of Ylands. While the latter is not yet available, it's good to be ready for when it comes!
  • Persistent user data - Creators can now keep data (such as game progress) on game servers and keep them relevant across game sessions, servers, and platforms! Imagine the possibilities!
  • UI Editor – Even more customization options for Creators! Now you’ll be able to create custom UI’s with panels, buttons, input fields and images.
  • Monetization – Creators will be able to monetize pretty much any element in their game for the in-game currency: Coyns.
  • Character Visual overhaul – All animals and characters are receiving a face-lift to keep them fresh and beautiful.
  • AI overhaul – Animals and character also got a brain-lift and will react much more naturally in the future. So no more overly aggressive penguins thinking they’re predators!
  • Custom controls input – As with the UI, Creators will also be able to customize player controls in script to really make every game unique.
  • Path Editor - Ever wanted to see a building block move in a tangent line? You can do it yourself now in the powerful & fun Path Editor!
  • Horse controls overhaul – Horses will be much more controllable and won’t walk in circles or head down in the ground…hopefully. Who’s ready for the rodeo?!
  • Various gameplay improvements - We touched up on some of the existing systems, making sure they play nicely with the new ones and kept working on enhancing the overall feel of the game.
  • Chat improvements - It is now easier than ever to tell the world about your newly dyed ship.
  • Avatars screen overhaul - It's like looking in a mirror.
  • Codex – Your trusty companion in Ylands is much more informed lately and you’ll find useful explanations and links to our ever-expanding wiki.

🇨🇨😄 <= Why did everything wrote turned into this? Normal text into, well, this after just typing and not entering any flags? Also, why can't I just delete it? This text editor on this forum is haunting me in dreams for a very long time now. 

Also, do you know yet if the mobile version of the game will have to be rebought, or if we will be able to "claim" it once we have it on Steam? Not that it would have stopped me from playing on the mobile though. My recently bought new phone, that's great for gaming, was a good purchase afterall :

I can't add logics in standard explore.  Everything is a waypoint. 

I can't use editor explore because there is a green box and nothing exists out side the box.  I assume it has something to do with the impassable barrier toggle.  But I can't toggle it off.  

I do like the animal changes.  I wish camels were tamable and ridable like horses.  Speaking of horses,  Thank you.  Horses are fun now.

Waiting for the inevitable hotpatch.

No flying sharks for now :( Also, it seems that seas are now completely safe?

Hi, by default you create a game which will be playable on both PC and mobile. (Restriction to max 3x3x3 game blocks) If you want to create for PC only you can check that option in game settings. It will "unlock" all terrain as you were used to but bare in mind that it will not work on mobile phones.

What does the restriction to 3x3x3 game blocks mean? From the picture above (the green box) it seems like we will be very very limited in map. But I don't understand the "3x3x3". It's morning and I haven't woke up yet so I can't comprehend anything :D

What about not being able to place the simple logics in standard explore?

I really enjoyed the first look on the update and the Playlands look great but I'm a bit disappointed that there isn't any solo game :( If I have to wait for five people to join me, I may as well not play at all right now. I joined and nobody was online so I found a minigame that I liked, joined a queue, jumped around a few minutes. Somebody joined the same queue but stayed for like three minutes not doing anything. Then he, of course, bored, logged of. If there was anything for solo gaming, people would stay longer on the server and maybe even played together after enough players have gathered. It's sad that the real multiplayer can be tried out only by such groups as P1.

If you have 'Universal' mode ticked off (which is done automatically and means that in the future this map will be accessible to mobile players) you can't place logics outside of the green box. If you untick it or keep it inside, it should be fine.

I joined and nobody was online so I found a minigame that I liked, joined a queue, jumped around a few minutes. Somebody joined the same queue but stayed for like three minutes not doing anything. Then he, of course, bored, logged of. If there was anything for solo gaming, people would stay longer on the server and maybe even played together after enough players have gathered. It's sad that the real multiplayer can be tried out only by such groups as P1.

Unfortunately, because of server availability, we have to restrict it to five-players only games 😕 Hopefully the public Playlands will fill up soon and there should be players to play with. And maybe a forum topic about this would be fun for people to meet up and plan some mini-game fun 😁 (I'd definitely jump in 😊

No flying sharks for now :( Also, it seems that seas are now completely safe? 

Well If you don't crash into any rocks 😁 And sharks are in for a rework 😊

Also, do you know yet if the mobile version of the game will have to be rebought, or if we will be able to "claim" it once we have it on Steam? Not that it would have stopped me from playing on the mobile though. My recently bought new phone, that's great for gaming, was a good purchase afterall :

The mobile version for iOS and Android will be free to download, but you won't be able to create in this version, just 'consume' the games created 😊

What does the restriction to 3x3x3 game blocks mean? From the picture above (the green box) it seems like we will be very very limited in map. But I don't understand the "3x3x3". It's morning and I haven't woke up yet so I can't comprehend anything :D

World is divided into big blocks (each approximately 100 metres wide in all axes) Until now it was not needed for you to know about this. You encountered it only when loading/unloading part of lands in game. Always whole these blocks are loaded/unloaded.

You do not need to think about blocks even now. You see bounds of "universal" area by green box

What about not being able to place the simple logics in standard explore?  

Not sure what do you mean. It was never possible to place game logic object in game saves. It should be possible to place them to "explore like maps" created in editor. I tried that and I do not see any problem there.

Why is it automatically set to make as game type that does not exist yet? Shouldn't that be opt in, not opt out?

Where is this universal switch?

Communication really isn't a BI strength.

Forgive me if I don't use the right words.

But it was very possible since about 0.12, maybe 0.11. I am not sure.

I was able to put scripting on things like chests, doors, etc.  

For example, sitting in a specific chair would transport a player from on place to another place.  Opening a chest or a basket could place an item in player inventory.  

I couldn't do fancy things, but I could do very specific and simple things.  All them helped make this game more playable.

Now I can't.

I was also having problems with quick save and save in editor. I was having to exit to main menu and then save to get the save.

It is this way because it is always better to start making a game which will work on all supported platforms than to make a game and then hear "sorry, it will run only on PC".

 

Putting scripts and game logic objects to game save was never supported. If you were able to do it then it was possible only by mistake. Many things would not work correctly. (maybe it would not be seen on the first sight) We do not plan adding this feature to the game. (to be able to modify/add scripts/game logic objects to existing play saves)

So then... all those times we took a map from the server and edited the scripts in our teleporting chairs.... was just a mistake?   Then that might be a mistake you want to keep.
