Happy Build Day Survivalist,
We have just released Alpha 7 which I must say is our biggest update to date! The build offers a complete world visual overhaul with new smooth terrain, ground textures, plants, trees and a new lighting model. We’ve also added a stealth system with noises, smells and a rock throwing distraction system. If that wasn’t enough we’ve added a cooking/chemistry system with new and improved recipes. We’ve also added loot and crafting timers, new death/drop, spawning and joining options, a new sound mixing system, a mining helmet a flashlight bind key, some new animations and many bug fixes.
Note: With the addition of cooking and the campfire system, saves for versions prior to 7 will be incompatible. Alpha 7 will be the main build now.
