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.
  • Various rendering optimizations.
  • Sound volume instead of master volume in settings.

Change log: 0.25

  • Mana is now "wild" by default and should be claimed with the new Claim Mana spell.
  • Gatherers only pick up mana owned by the player now, ignoring the wild mana.
  • Player's maximum mana depends on the mana stored in the castle now.

  • Spell icon turns semi-transparent now when the spell can't be cast.
  • Made Fracture spell stronger and improved its effect aesthetically.
  • Updated the tutorial to teach about claiming mana.
  • Fixed items appearing inside menhirs sometimes.

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

Thanks!

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 ;)

This is what From Dust should've been!
If you can eventually make proper lava then this game would be up in my top 10 of everything lol.

I'm going to add lava in one of the next updates. I need to rework the water a bit first though.

Understood, it would be nice to have joystick emulation as an option since I use K&M and not pad.
As always thanks for your answers. Keep on the good work.

Yeah, now I remember the never ending movement in MC, true, it is annoying, I agree.

Regarding the movements: are you going to implement it like in MC, ie. when you want to circle strafe you just move the mouse once, you don't have to keep moving it like in FPSs?

I'm going with FPS-like controls for now, since they are more common.

What you suggest is essentially joystick emulation with mouse, and is used in some flight simulators, both aircraft and space combat ones. I might add it as an option. Gamepad support could be useful too, and quite similar.

I'm working on GUI now (as well as researching several things), so next version is likely to have in-game menu and options, and I might add some control options too.
