12/9/13 - Change Logs
Was posted on IRC

- HUGE balance patch, every item, creature, armor and weapon rebalanced. Leveling system entirely rewritten

Although the balance is early the new leveling system, the system is much better than the old one and we can

now improve balance over time.

- Added early implementation of creature taming (more features coming soon)

- Added new mining items

- Added new weapons

- Added new throwable items

- Added grappling hook

- Added new boss and new sector of the galaxy

- Added a stance system to weaponry, not currently used but will allow us to

add secondary attacks to weaponry very soon.

- Tons of new sounds

- Guns more common in tier 3

- Underground detached/rare biomes more common

- Underground random encounters more common

- Underground chests more common

- Ore rebalance (probably way way too much ore at the moment, will be fixed later, enjoy it)

- Baby monsters

- New monster palettes

- Added pixel compressor for high cost banking (idea from Ncrpts)
- Disable using the beamaxe to light caves underground

- Added new hats

- some monsters now graze on grass (can look ugly, needs finishing)

- Small bipeds now socialise with eachother

- All the monsters behave smarter and are less likely to get stuck

- You can no longer attack through blocks

- Fix the game on XP (hopefully)

- Tons more fixes and smaller additions

-

You can no longer attack through blocks ... pity, was rather useful against the prisoners in the USCM prisons :D

Haha, awesome.

As long as you can still shoot arrows through those tiny little gaps between blocks, it's all good :3

Omni said he doesn't know if that's legit stuff, could be fake.

They need to make monsters have the ability to break through dirt and wood. It's to easy to just spam dirt over them to trap them and move on like nothing even happened.

No, then our houses would be destroyed!

It comes directly from Tiy

Would also have been surprised if it had been fake ... most of the things written therein were known beforehand, or were rather plausible considering the other changes

This idea has been discussed in the official forums and it's been deemed dumb. You'll spend combined hours repairing your house or base instead of actually playing the game. On top of that, walling enemies is a legit strategy. If you don't like it, don't do it. Just don't tell me how to play the game.

Now if only they fix the Floran dialogue. They seem like they're supposed to be sophisticated creatures, but then they talk like drooling idiots.

Where'd you think they were sophisticaed? They're barbaric, flesh-eating monsters. They drove the Hylotl off their homeworld and have invaded other places. They live in grass/tree huts for crying out loud!

Might want to read their lore before you continue with that line of thought
