Explosive Staircase Hotfix (v1.5.0.1)


Recommended Posts

Version, a stable release, is now ready for download in the account manager.

As some of you may have experienced by now, ore blasting bombs are a very useful tool that enables you to quickly mine large deposits. They were however practically harmless to the player, which was not intentional. This update makes them literally deadly if you are too careless.

Unlike in Minecraft however, an explosion will not hurt you if you take cover behind a blast resistant wall. So in case of ore blasting bombs either stand behind a 2 block thick rock wall, or a 1 block thick wall at a distance of 5 blocks and you should be save.

Game updates

  • Feature/Fixed: Explosions hardly hurting players. An ore blasting bomb explosion in the immediate vicinity (< 1.5 blocks) will now instantly kill the player. Explosion range and injury range are now separate. The ore blasting bomb now has an explosion range of 4 blocks and an injury range of 10 blocks. So from now on, when you go blast mining, you better take cover.

Since there's nothing new to show visually, here's 2 mildly interesting testing screenshots of a bombs ray cast and a large fire test O_O
