Kenshi
Update 0.32 is out now.
November 16, 2012 - Captain Deathbeard

0.32.0 is now available via the games' auto-updater. If you don't have the game you can download it from http://www.lofigames.com. The main purpose of the update is bug-fixing, but I also added a night/day cycle, with a clock in the corner of the HUD.


It doesn't look awesome yet, I will still need to get some HDR effects on the sun, and add in shadows and town lights at some point.

The main reason for the adding the day cycle now is that I need the game to have a concept of time. The next update will be adding mining and possibly crafting, and I also need to do the "Harrasment & Taxes" update. These need a concept of time, partly for the gameplay so you can have bandits saying "Have our money ready when we come back in 4 days!". And partly because it helps me tune the input/output rates of all the machines and resources to get things balanced.

Next update: Mining!
It won't be too long either, because I'm nearly done already.

Here is the official changes for the newest update:

0.32.0 "Night & Day"
-Added night/day cycle. Its only cosmetic for now, but it gives a concept of time, which is needed for next updates. Make sure you have "Fancy Shaders" turned on in the options to avoid ugly graphics bugs.

BUGFIXES
-Fixed bug with buildings not showing fully again after entering them
-Reduced the occurence of the bug when enemies don't go into ragdoll mode when they should.
-Minor performance boost, and possibly better stability in multi-threaded mode.
-Fixed inventory held by mouse cursor sometimes vanishing in certain curcumstances
-A few crash fixes
-Fixed bug where sometimes a character can't move after getting up from ragdoll state
-Fixed newly recruited characters being un-clickable
-You don't get bounty rewards from using your own cages now, and can only claim a bounty on a character once.
-Unconcious enemies no longer vanish when you save/load. This might slow performance if you hang around in an area for a long time and the bodies start piling up. Will add body decay or burial next update.

Starting location always reminds me of Jabba's Palace
