Preparation for new world generation has begun! I've started working on some of the files that will contain the chunks, done some tests, etc. Visually the world has its own data folder now. Just makes it easier for me to add things later on. And yes, as you can see Time is now stored in a file because I do plan on continuing some of my earlier concepts of getting EXP for play time and possibly and 'age' system.

Just makes it easier for me to add things later on. And yes, as you can see Time is now stored in a file because I do plan on continuing some of my earlier concepts of getting EXP for play time and possibly and 'age' system.

I've just rendered it here for testing purposes:

Also fixed the Options menu's save button not working if you don't change anything and you can now press Escape to bring you back to the main menu whilst not in-game.

Finally, in terms of a test version I'll probably put one out tomorrow before I go ahead and finish off multiplayer and then the new world gen but my time is fairly limited so I can't promise a test version after that for a while.
