A new release has been uploaded to the unstable release. Here are the changes:

HDR improved

The problem with the black shadows is resolved. But I am still not satisfied with the colors. I miss a little bit the summer feeling. We will improve this in further version.

Wooden framework and stairs added

We added a new wooden framework set. So you can create wooden towers, stairs or even wooden platforms. Here is an example of a perch:

New placement indicator

As we tested the wooden framework we had problems when placing the objects on top of each other. The problem was that when the object is not placeable the engine will display nothing which makes it difficult to current the placement position. This has now been resolved. When it is not possible to place an object the game will nevertheless disable a box:

Ok it's barely visible but this is intention. There should be a clear difference to the case when you can place the object:

Glass renderer

The last bug in the transparence renderer has been found:

In this screenshot you can see 3 transparent layers: The glass in the foreground, the torch and the glass in the background!

Music added

A youtuber had the idea that it would improve the atmosphere of the game when we add music. This has been done now. We are using free music from cdk downloaded from ccmixer.

The music can of course be disabled in the configuration menu.

Feature overview

As youtubers often say that there isn't much to do in this game we added a feature overview when you start the game. The feature list is not complete yet. Here is a screenshot:

Bug fixes

We did a lot of bug fixing. The most annoying bug was in the shadow map generation system. When the player moved it could be that the shadow map was generated with the wrong sun position. This produced flickering. Then we removed the rest of the old game engine. As you may have noticed that it says copyright 1996- . This means that there was also an old quake style engine in this game. We removed parts of this old engine.

Added entities on game start

One youtuber complained that he found it boring when it is dark at night. Ok, since the first commercial release of our game we have the „Bed“ in which you can sleep. To make it easier for newbies we added several entities when the game starts. Amoung these are a bed, torches and a chest.

Compressed Data Structures

For the new world matrix we created compressed data structures. But it is still a long way!

Loading of meshes optimized

And as we want to bring the bear in the game we again worked on the model importer. We imported a sheep, the fish and a dangerous insect!

So that's it for today. I hope you enjoy the new version!

I found that you can actually smelt 2 blocks (one on top of the other) with the wood, coal can be used which burns longer too.

@SirMaeglin Haha that is true!

Jun 23 2015, 3:12am

@SirMaeglin But actual it is very important for me to get feedback. This is the only way to improve the game...

Jun 22 2015, 3:09am

@SirMaeglin I knew that samurai killed themselfs after they lost a battle. But game developers? That is crazy!

Jun 22 2015, 2:56am

@SirMaeglin No problem. This was harmless. In fact one guy who does not like my game suggested that I should commit suicide...

Jun 22 2015, 2:54am

@SirMaeglin Hey this is only the first version! We will smooth this.
