Update 0.20 - Mining with lasers!
  • Added Item Magnet block that attaches to the top of Crates. It will suck nearby blocks into crates.
  • Added Lasers. These will break blocks at the expense of a large amount of power.
  • Added Focusing Lenses. These will multiply a lasers strength up to 3 times and do not cost any extra power.
  • Cracks on broken blocks appear much softer over blocks now.
  • Block textures are now 64x64 instead of the previous 128x128(Vanilla textures are 32x32 scaled up so this does not affect them). This is too fit many more block textures into the same texture space without increasing the resource usage for old computers.
  • Block textures are now point filtered due to small texture space and pixel art will appear ‘crisper’.
  • Changed EWDS alarm sound to something that is less likely to drive you mad.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed major bug related to creation of new chunks. New island chunks would not be visible when revisiting an area until the server restarted.
  • Fixed dropping items when typing R on signs.
  • Fixed servers not sending correct player count to server list.
  • Fixed a bug where you are able to move ships without power use.
  • Fixed being able to turn ships without power use.
  • Fixed changing sound in options not effecting game until restart.
  • Fixed large time jumps on the client(from things like device loss) from allowing you to fall through blocks and get stuck or die.
  • Fixed issue with NPC(mainly Bird) rotation where they’d disappear when moving in some directions.
  • Fixed Turrets firing at NPCs.

There is also a FREE demo[www.skynations.net] with limited features.

Please Note: This is not a Minecraft mod. This game was built from scratch and the focus of the game is pretty different. I wrote a fairly lengthy post on why not all games that use blocks are 'Minecraft rip offs'. You can check it out here[skynations.net].

You can always just host your own server off your PC and not let people in, that's a pseudo singleplayer.

@aid man the17th, there will not be a singleplayer. If the game gets Greenlit people with registered accounts will likely get a Steam key, assuming Valve allows it.
