Hello Xsyon Citizens!
A quick update for today. We're wrapping up the next public patch. We've
changed some of what we're working on as a we decided to wrap up some
tasks that have been in progress for a long time.
The coming patch will have seed gathering, tree planting, improved
shadows, further improved rainfall and snow gathering innards from
creatures, increased creature stats and mutants. We've also finally
wrapped up how some of our data is stored and transfered. This step will
allow us to do more public testing. Without this, often we were stuck
not being able to open the public test server as necessary files could
affect the main build as well. With our recent changes this will no
longer be a problem.
Carts are still in progess but as there were many complications with
collision and inventory functions, these won't be in until the changes
listed above are patched out.
At the moment it looks like this patch will take another few days. The
goal is to get all of this in before Thanksgiving weekend.
Our new launcher is also ready. We're moving to a new EU server with
this launcher change, so once the new server is ready this week, the new
launcher will be released.
It's going to be a busy week!
That's all for today!
