Shears, quartz glass and delayed lighting (v1.4.0)


Recommended Posts

Pioneering Vintarians
Version 1.4.0 is now available for download in the account manager.


This release fixes a number of non-critical, yet annoying issues and should improve the survival experience with many multiplayer fixes, the addition of shears, quartz glass, 6 slot bags, connecting fences, placeable lilies and cattails as well as a significantly cheaper crafting recipe for bombs.

Particularly for UmbraCreations there is now also an ability in WorldEdit to remove the largest bottleneck when it comes to placing *many* blocks - lighting. By delaying the lighting calculations until all block operations are done one can remove many redundancies in the lighting process which should make it easier to work on very large builds.

Thanks to a valuable hint by CreativeMD I was also able to remove the frame stutter while the player is moving aound which appeared independently of the FPS Rate, it should now be super smooth as long as the FPS Rate is high enough \o/

Thanks to Skodone, we can also safely declare multiplayer as a tested and stable part of the game. 

The 2 larger features I've mentioned last time are not ready yet for release, but we have made some significant progress on them. We are also planning a large overhaul and extension of the first few hours of the survival experience, such as ditching the stone tools in their current form. It is something we always wanted, but implementing other game mechanics took precedence. Now, our schedule is slowly freeing up :-)

Game Updates

  • Feature: Added Shears
    • Crafted from any metal on the anvil
    • Very useful for removing tree leaves
  • Feature: Ability to delay block lighting during world edit, significantly speeds up operations where you have to draw or import a lot of blocks
    • When importing a lot of block or using a very large brush you can now disable lighting via /we relight 0 which completely disables all lighting calculations, you can then relight a marked area using /we mre, this may lag the server for several minutes but should otherwise complete much faster then when using traditional lighting. To recap:
      1. Disable lighting: /we relight 0
      2. Make large edit operations
      3. Mark the affected area (/we ms, /we me) 
      4. Relight the affected area: /we mre
