Two updates in one row, 0.25 is about "mana tactics", 0.26 is about graphical update. See the details below ! :)

Change log: 0.26

  • New shadows.
  • New anti-aliasing method (TAA).
  • Tree foliage now uses a much less detailed model in the distance, for performance.
  • Tried to improve water simulation performance on some CPUs.
  • Added rim lighting and adjusted land textures.
  • Disabled stylistic post-processing effect by default, you can toggle it with F5.

  • Sound volume instead of master volume in settings.

Hi. I just tried the alpha, and I have some comments for things that I feel the game needs:
1. A ceiling (invisible) - As-is, you can fly so far up that the entire world is nothing but a indistinct blue ring
2. A more flight-like movement model - Right now, it basically feels like mouselook, especially with the instant starting and stopping, as well as basically instant turning.
3. A floor - Just for kicks, I cast pit repeatedly on a tree until I was so far underground that the outside was just a slim light overhead.
4. A character model - Looking down and seeing your carpet and/or shadow would help a lot with immersion.

And obviously a lot more things to make it a complete game, but things like this should be planned for as early as possible.

After playing this game for a while and figuring out how it worked, I turned on the mana cheat, and I have to say, it might be hard to put a ceiling in this game.
If you use the fracture spell a lot or volcano a lot, the ceiling would have to rise with the landmass otherwise you would be stuck between the floor and the ceiling unable to move.
And due to the nature of the fracture spell, that would be one messed up ceiling lol.

Edit: Dunno why it's showing up as a reply to this comment...was meant to reply to the guy saying the game needed a ceiling?

Thanks for your feedback.
I'm going to improve flight, several people complained about it too. Adding character shadow is easy, but I don't like to define the character more.
I considered adding ceiling, especially when I'll have clouds, but I missed the floor, thanks.

Thanks! And wow, didn't even register while playing, but that does have some consistent lag. I'll make sure to get that sorted out for the next release that I cover. Hopefully with better equipment...

I love the transparent water!
2 questions i must ask:
Are you going to have a sandbox mode when this game is completed where we can just do what we can do in the demo?

Is there going to be much larger maps?

Also just want to say this game is addicting as hell!
If i can guess I've spent at least 20 or 30 hours just mucking about in it.....so fun. :3

Yes, there'll be a sandbox mode. For now, I'm going to move cheats and developer stuff to the special menu.

Unlikely. The maps are limited by water simulation. I'm not going to make them larger unless I raise minimum system requirements. Maybe in sequel ;)
