Game Development: Wood Grease

Postby jorb » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:38 am

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


New Implementations
  • Added "Fishing Net", you can drop the net, or right click it to place it exactly. The net catches fish over time, but also loses efficiency in doing so over time. Fish caught have a chance to disappear per unit of time, so there's a judgment call to be made on when to recover the nets, as leaving them for too long will cause them to empty. Suggested since the dawn of time, and perhaps a first stab at more fishing changes in the pipe.
  • Added "Wood Grouse", forest bird with distinct dimorphism between cocks and hens. Can't never have enough birds. The cocks fight. Suggested here.
  • Added "Cutblade", weapon.
  • Added "Mohair Shirt", shirt.
  • Added "Bear Fur Trimmings", gilding.

Key Fixes
  • Made it so that any carryable object with an object icon can have its inventory icon displayed on display signs, by carrying the object and right-clicking the display sign. Suggested here. Also made it so that meat icons are properly displayed, suggested here.

Small Fixes
  • Buffed Swan fighting values to make some room in the scala naturae for Wood Grouse.
  • You can no longer light things with an Irrlantern.
  • Fixed a bug by which Goats did not update their fleece meshes properly when shearable.
  • Platemail now wallmounts better. Reported here.

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

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

All Gold subscribers have been awarded the Sailor's Cap, free of charge.

In the Pipe
  • The main dev focus is the client rendering rewrite.
  • We spent two of our collective dev days this week on a bigger project, so this a one day patch. We're aiming to release this bigger thing(tm) next week.
  • Time to... like us on Facebook?
