2015.04.14 - Almost at the surface


It has been a little more than a month since the last release, and it will probably take a month more before the next release will be out. This is because we have started introducing the surface world and a lot of other things to make the game play more fluid and balanced. So in this news post I wanted to sum up all the new features that have been implemented since the last release if anyone has missed something Smile

Let us go outside!

I would hate to be rude, but is there a way to get my Hands on this like a "Early-Early Access"? Honestly I can't wait, and I'd love to help in any way I can. Huh

Do you have a Finalized release date yet? I mean it's been the amount of time you said it'd take.

Looks exciting! Do we have an ETA of approximate finish time for this patch? This patch will be game changing!

Also your link to your "Building all at once" goes to your "Partly fog of war" thread.

RE:
I have bug-checked as much as possible, there are some unsolved bugs reported, but I have also found some issues that could be cause to these crashes. But I am not sure so to speak... Therefore I would like to get this next version out there and then do some quick bug fix releases if they still persists.

Right now I am working on the tutorial. And if everything goes as planned it should be a release on Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Sorry for the delay, much to do and to be honest, sometimes the private life gets in the way as well Sad

Awesome! I can't wait.

I understand about the private life thing. Stuff gets too complicated too fast :/ just don't feel too pressured too get stuff done.
