    The Progress never stops.

    Boring text is boring

    I'll try to record a video or two this weekend to give ya' all an overview on how the game looks like now. That should hopefully be a bit more exhilerating than my constant walls of text :D

    Updates

    • The building blocks in the game received some extra love
      • Doors, the carpenters table and the sign block can now be placed in any 4 directions. 
      • All the torches properly attach to walls, emit colored particles, and they can no longer be attached to non-solid block sides
      • Added upside down slabs
      • We've added brick blocks and improved the textures for Sand, Gravel, and Shingles

      • All the stair blocks (planks, shingles, cobble) are now correctly, which means they have correct collision boxes and can be placed in 4 directions each up and down side.
         
      • We now have "wildvine ends" that give a nice looking end to the vines. Also fixed wildvines being wrongly shaded and wrongly biome colored. Did I already mention we can now generate 2x2 thick trees (all trees are made by the same generator)?

      • Finalized the flower pot, which now can hold any flower or sapling. It's my second favorite block after the lantern *_*
        Saraty still plans to make separate potted flower graphics to they fit nice and neat into the pot.

    • I've failed hard on trying to fix a lighting glitch when using coloured lights. I will have to refactor to a slightly simpler system. I'm currently using the HSV color space which seems impossible to get right, so probably will use RGB lights. RGB lights have a small glitch on their own, but a much less noticable one.
       
    • The particle system got 2 new properties: OpacityEvolve and SizeEvolve. With those I could make some quite nice smoke particles for the fire pit that increase in size and fade out over time. Freely configurable in each block as always.

    • Spent 3 hours finding a flipped -/+ sign that was causing block side shading glitches :/ 
       
    • Many bugfixes and minor tweaks and additions (/help alphabetically sorted, .clearchat clears the chat history, reloading shaders ingame now tells if an error happened, block particle colors now in HSV space). Multiplayer should work a bunch better again. Some weird new issues appeared with trying to start the server on linux which I'm trying to solve next.
