One of the focuses for 0.8.0 is to add a lot more smaller items and a lot more crafting recipes. We're aiming for at least 30 new items and we've got quite a few of them to show today.

Firstly though, you can now destroy stumps. This can either be done by continuing to chop at the stump or by lighting it on fire. By chopping at it you have a random chance of receiving a root.

This leads on to the new medicine items. Medicine comes in three tiers. Weak medicine can be made using a root + leaves. It has a small chance of curing diseases. (Mild) medicine can be made using weak medicine and adding grass tufts to it (that can be pulled out from grass by right-clicking it). Finally, strong medicine can be made by combining flowers found in the swamp.

Finally, you can now make "carved sticks" using a branch + any sharp tool (such as a crude tool or spear). Combining a carved stick with a branch will create a walking stick.

Walking sticks support you when you have low leg health. This means you will not lose energy through walking whilst on low leg health.

More to come!
