Audio Improvements

"Sound effect" game logic improved, allowing creators to customize sounds (volume, repeat delay time, audible distance).

Cooking System Improvements

Many new food items with complex recipes.
Some meals that take longer to prepare now provide strength boost for a limited amount of time.

Particle Game Logic improvements

Ability to scale particle effects via visual scripting.
Ability to stop particle emission (rather than turning it off altogether) via visual scripting.

Editor Improvements

Various small fixes and improvements for the editor, individual improvements listed in the "Additions/Improvements" section.

Editor: Custom object parameters

Allows setting up variables in such a way so they can be seen and changed in the object properties window.
This means variables can be easily accessed in the object properties window instead of having to go into the script and changing variables there.

Editor: Visual Scripting Comments / Notes

Special script blocks that have no function but to help you organize code.
Choose from freely placed "sticky note" like block and a line comment, which you can insert into your script stack.
Both comments and notes support rich text formatting, so you can make part of texts bold, change their color and much more.

It will be unusual for me, not being able to stack when planting, but we've needed improvements to the farming mechanics for quite a long time.  And the restrictions for terrain types for different kinds of plants makes a lot of sense, as well as giving us a use for all the soil and sand we end up collecting.  Does it restrict us from placing plants on bare building materials?  Might have to re-think my stone gardens.  😀

Looking forward to trying that out.

Does it "preview" where the plant will go or will we still have to guess that?  I'm hoping for some type of indicator, as a small arrow or hologram preview, so we know exactly where we're placing it before we plant it.  And is it able to "lock on" to the small planter boxes, so we can plant in them and make it look good?

 

Of course, you would introduce and interesting new biome as I'm knee-deep in digging an ambitiously huge underground base in my current save (spanning almost the entire size of the barrier).  This is one reason why I never finish things.  (heavy sigh)

Not a big fan of the limited planting to certain biomes. Each biome does not have what I want or need.  Ther is nothing edible that will be plantable on polar. And not much on taiga or arid. Bad move. 

Also, the definition of soon has been stretched out of all reality. Nitrado is not going to be an option, clearly.  

Playgrounds still broken?

More misinformation. 

But hey, bigfoot  woot woot.

I think that's where the collected dirt and sand comes into play.  We could place it down to create a gardening area for different plant types.  That's what I expect, at least.  We'll have to give it a try.

I am a little concerned about restricting some to "grass" unless the dirt we place counts as grass.

Good update thanks

 

"[YLD-20882] Fixed: Non-aggressive animals won't trigger danger audio feedback when approaching the player (e.g. calling horse won't activate combat soundtrack anymore)   "  

------   Minipylot and I are happy that this one is fixed.  It was pretty annoying.

"[YLD-20730] Tweaked: Some fallen trees have too large collider"

----- Is this a fix for the floating trees after we chop the tree stump before the tree trunk?

@Indomitus I hope you are right. I don't mind having to make sure the soil 0.7 s right, or building greenhouses on colder biomes. My guess is that's not true.

I really like the first implementation of farming, it's a much needed mechanic for explore gamemode. Some suggestions for it:

  • Grass seeds that turn a dirt voxel into grass,
  • Moisture/temperature system for plants. Moisture could be based on the biome, but also improved using irrigation. Temperature could be improved using heaters. It would be nice if plants would have 2 temperature ranges, one range where it will grow, but really slow, and one much smaller ideal range. This won't make farming impossible but will add lategame content as people will have to make multiple "greenhouses"/farming systems for different plant types.

Can't wait for more explore content/polishing as that's what made me buy the game in the first place.

The new planting system doesn't work for bamboo.

 

And seriously, PLEASE, fix the horse AI.  They keep getting between me and predators during a fight.  Not acceptable.

I ran a brief test this morning.  I used dirt on polar and was able to plant sisel.  I could not plant it in the planter boxes, which should be universal if we don''t have the option to make soil specific ones.   So you can grow in the different soils on different biomes.   

This being the case, I think I do like it as it adds a bit of game play to the game.  I can now go to polar, build a green house (for realism) put down dirt, and have harvestable plants.

Playing on the hardest mode. Riding my horse and a honey badger hit me and killed me in one shot.  This isn't hard, it's stupid. The badger never even came into contact with ME.  So at worst, the horse should have taken damage.

If we are going to take damage on horseback, we need to be able to defend on horseback.

Seriously.  Either let horses sprint, or let us defend.  It's ridiculous.  It's not hard mode, it's stupid mode.
