Game Development: Kicksleddin' on Thin Ice

Postby jorb » Wed Sep 04, 2019 7:34 pm

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added a "Kicksled", vehicle. Build it, and zip-zap around on snow and ice. Slow elsewhere. Unsure of the PvP implications, but I guess we'll find out! The kicksled takes one passenger or object.
  • You can now, using a pick-axe, chop away ice, and get an ice block in the process. You can shave snow from ice blocks.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Ice should now obey the same building placement rules as water.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • You can now Alt-RMB to place snowball stockpiles.
  • Pickaxe is now required for quarrying stone from overworld stone tiles. Proper animation used.
  • Proper animation is now used when shoveling snow.
  • Leeks and Red Onions should now give correct yield when harvested in their fallow states.

Image
As always, if you liked what we did here: Support the patch.

Today's Patch Item, for the fair price of $10, is the "Overgrown Tophat".

Store Description wrote:Image$10 A mad hatter left his top in a garden, and, after a while, the weeds and 'shrooms made of it a happy home.


All Gold & Silver subscribers have been awarded the "Overgrown Tophat", free of charge.

In the Pipe
-----------------------

Enjoy!

Was hoping the sled could store items on it and we could push it around in the snow, but i have not built one yet so idk if that is already part of it. Lovely update though.

What did this change exactly? I can still build mine supports and whatnot on ice and I can only assume this is not intended.

Ah, all that I knew of was the building of walls close to ice. I don't think building mine supports on ice is a problem, and I'm not sure there's a reason to remove it.

Will they collapse when the ice melts?

Also, does the quality of the pickaxe affect the quality of quarried stone?
