Update 0.136


An update has been released released with a fair few bug fixes that were spotted with the influx of players from the IndieGameStand sale that has now ended. Halos and chat Badges have also been added for the respective players who deserved them. Check out the change log below for more detail. As usual you can download the update via the launcher.

The server update can be found at: Skynations.net


Changelog 0.136


Changes

  • Added option to server settings which can be set to “true” or “false”. Setting it to true will mean chunk and ship files are loaded up into memory on startup making reading very quick. This is useful for VPS’s and any kind of machine running the game server with slow read/write harddrives or high file i/o wait time(VPS’s have very bad i/o wait in most cases). However this has a memory impact. VFS is set as false by default (previously was always on). If your server has an SSD you can benefit from setting it to false allowing the file to be loaded from the harddrive instead significantly reducing memory use on large maps..
  • Added option to server settings which can be set to “true” or “false”. Setting this to true will mean all chunks and ships are loaded up at server startup and are not unloaded. Do not do this on large maps. This is best set to true on Team deathmatch style servers where you have a small map and want to remove any extra computation such as loading/unloading chunks. This allows for a very smooth experience.
  • Added Halos to the top 5 contributors.
  • Added chat badges for Koto, Sen, HumanCant Think, Kattehus, and Indie.
  • Changed server to space out chunk unloading to prevent occasional stutters.
  • Various improvements to server performance based on larger amount of players.
  • Added altitude(Y) to coordinates and put each coordinate on a new line due to decimal points of non-English speaking countries being confusing(where ‘,’ is a decimal point).
  • Added weight of ship to UI next to ship energy.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where particle effects from thrusters would be left over in some cases after a ship had left the area or been destroyed.
  • Fixed a bug where particles would stop working in some cases.
  • Fixed a bug where rebinding the Nation window key would open the Nation window over the top of the Keybindings menu leaving you stuck.
  • Fixed a bug where the server wouldn’t delete some new chunks when all their blocks were gone in some cases and they’d reload after server restart.
  • Fixed a memory leak on the server.
  • Fixed ammo missing on player ui on chunk load in.
  • Fixed item scrolling missing sixth slot in item bar.
  • Fixed invisible players.

i had hoped that this game would become more popular, but there are just too few playing it. it a shame, because the whole idea with the nation system is to have many players playing at the same time.

my suggestion would be to make it free to play, even just for some time. or spend more time on advertising for the game. jsut some suggestions, although i know you probably considered it :)

cheers!

That game needs more iron. Bought it at your webpage and played a bit at the official server. I checked the wiki and the newbie guide and it says iron (which apparently is needed for some items if you want more speed) is only to find at pillars but I can't find pillars.

Great game that shows amazing promise! In alpha at the moment and you can tell there are great things in the future for it. The creator of the game seems to be very active on the official server and the community is very friendly. Some may see this as a minecraft clone, but it surely is not. Sky Nations takes two things I always wished minecraft had, airships and floating islands, and specializes the hell out of them, while managing to reinvent many things that minecraft made popular. If you are…
