I finished cutting the S8 trailer earlier this month -- it features music by the amazing Electric Children, and in-game cameos by many players.
Now when you go up, the camera follows you upwards. Already players are building floating cities!
One of the top requested features, Player Clothing, is now live! You can now customize your player with hats, shirts, and accessories:
Check out all the options in Menu > Shop > Clothing. A few other changes in this build:
A recent update introduce the Gold Safe, in the shop under Household Goods.
The safe allows you to store & retrieve gold. Anyone can deposit gold into it, but in order to retrieve the gold, you must open it using a password that you specify. This makes it useful as a donation box, or a shared resource usable by trusted members of your city.
Once you purchase one, be sure to set a password on it, and then close it. This will prevent strangers from taking gold out of it.
Be careful who you give the password to -- once the safe is open, anyone can take gold out of it, or change its password. Because of this, you might want to build a vault room around it for added security. You'll be able to see nearby persons putting money into, taking money out of, or changing the password on a safe.
As you put more gold into the safe, when its open you'll be able to see larger quantities inside it. When closed, the quantity will be a secret.
More details on safe operation can be found on the blog.
You can now /ignore players, their text will be hidden from your view.
Build #626 released with (much) better username text rendering:
