Masterspace v1.8 has been released, introducing a lot of new mobs. There is now a substantial amount of both hostile and friendly creatures that inhabit the different planets. The creatures all have specific behaviours and may either attack the player on sight or be more cautious in their approach. Some of them may even be friendly, unless attacked. A gallery of the new creatures is presented below:
On the earth-like planets, there are also familiar animal species, such as sheep, cows and pigs. Some of them may be used for production of different goods. For example, the wool of sheep may be used to produce carpets at the loom:
This version also includes a complete overhaul of the textures in the game. A lot of new materials have been added and others have been updated with higher quality textures. An overview of all material currently in the game is shown below:
Some of the objects in the game has also been updated with new and better models. Among them are the container, anvil and lamp post. Also, a 3D preview has been added to the construction screen and an object placement marker has been added:
Additionally, it is now possible to construct complete buildings and spaceships from a database of saved presets. This allows for rapid replication of existing constructions and allow players to share creations with each other. This will also allow for the population of planets with random buildings and space with player-created ships, as soon as the database is of a substantial size.
Finally, a LOD system has been implemented for the planets and the view distance may now be limited, which allows for much larger planet sizes. As usual, some bugs and crashes have also been fixed. For a complete changelog, please see below.
