Loads of news on the new PTV including the massive changelog, an explanation on the improved combat system and more!

Posted by Sekaru on Jul 13th, 2012

The third PTV!
Well looks like I haven't really put in everything I wanted in (I'm sorry, I had to work properly for the first time in my life in a real job). Instead, I've significantly (and by that I mean like... a-frickin'-lot) improved the combat system. Now there're still a couple of changes I'd like to make to it but here are a few things that are currently in it:

- Animals will now hit you in a random body part.
- If your head or torso reach zero, you will die.
- Low head health will result in a lower hit chance.
- Low arm health will result in weaker hits.

What else?
Well I've added swamp plants:

The inventory is now drag and drop and there is also a right click menu for it:

Almost everything is now based off your world mode, for example the rate at which you can catch diseases after eating raw food or standing near a corpse and finally even more world generation fixes and tweaks for even more cleaner world generation!

You can make it so animals will have, ehm, preferable target body part based on animal size. So insects, snakes, chickens will most of the time bite you in the leg, but still have a chance to bit something more important "upstairs" 8)
Just a suggestion, though.

Well at the moment we only have chickens, bears and rabbits so that isn't something I really considered, but I will, thanks :].
