Wednesday Update!
For today's update, we made an original announcement graphic from scratch.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=927504252

And here's what's new in v17.c060!

- When you now context-laser a placement, you can click a lock icon! Once locked, this object now cannot be accidentally deleted or moved, until you unlock it again. [Thanks Fazzi, Graphics & everyone who suggested this!]

- You can now set a new home area! Just go to the area "..." settings (for any area you created) and click "Make my home". [Thanks Spider, Fazzi, Graphics & everyone who suggested it!]

- We fixed how if you were editor but not creator of an area, a keyboard icon would overlap with the area title in the area dialog

- The find button height has been optimized

Thanks everyone & feedback welcome!

Locking!!
Home Area changing!
Awesome features to have, thank you.
Can you set your name Home as only an Area you created? (If it could be anything wow that would be neat, but what happens if an Editor bans you? Eek!)


Philipp I noticed a minor text bug last night, let me see if I can describe it from memory (it was a late night talking with friends and with new people...)
1. Open the Areas menu.
2. Tap the magnifying glass and type in a few letters of a word and do the search. (In my case I typed "loki" to find Lokimut's worlds.)
3. Not sure if necessary, but I did actually hit the Area's name button after the search to go to a new Area from the search.
4. Afterwards, I either context-lasered Emily or tapped on her name from my Friends menu, either way I then tapped on the new "Areas this person has created" mountain icon.
On the first page of Emily's list of Areas, at the top, it shows her name as expected.
When I tapped the arrow icon to go to the second page of her Areas, the text where her name was then read "loki" -- which was my most recent Area Search text string.
Locking and home area have been on my list for a long, loooooong time:)

Sorry if I haven't been around, but after 600 hours I needed to unplug and actually talk to my family again.

I'm bored of them again now and will be making a comeback, probably to discover all new people who I don't know and I have to get to grips with all these new things.

Thanks for the error description!

Exactly, it needs to be an area you created, as that guarantees you can't be e.g. area-locked from it... as that would mean Anyland wouldn't know where to send you, if not home!

(Graphics, now that you mention it, I think you too suggested those? I need to update the credits above!)
You don't need to amend anything chap!

Hope the new payment system works out for you, don't stress about a few people moaning... some people always will, that's what people do.

(Thanks! We'll keep everyone's feedback in mind and might explore new ways too. We'll see more once Valve actually enables in-app purchases, right now the trial week just extends indefinitely until they did :))

That makes sense, great!

There are so many good updates lately, I think I should visit Anyland again.

SPEAKING OF LOKIMUT!
I finally, after all these months, found and visited your home/island Area. Gorgeous, loved it! Really liked the ferns and foliage. =)
Awesome! Gotta lock down everything, but wow, I can't wait to see what's coming next! All praise Scott and Philipp (remember those days guys xD)

@Jinx: I think it is my fault that you couldn't find my home area. I had it set to private and forgot to change it before I stopped playing 3 months ago.

Thank you :) , but my home area is far away from being done. I just need some motivation to start building again.

And I didn't thought someone would remember my name. I rarely met other people and I think we never met each other.

I remember the screenshots of your place posted here. =)
