Hey all,

First up are new videos -- new trailer & instructional "Primer":

There is a new building to find, and this one will be a bit harder to get in & out of! At the top is a leader, if you can reach & defeat him, you will be rewarded. :)

I revamped lots of the sound system, tweaking volumes & adding back in a natural reverb effect. Things should sound much better now.

I also did many things to improve and polish the graphics. First, I added 3089 application icons to all of the windows -- no more default Java or LWJGL icons anymore. I've tweaked the terrain texture to be less monotone, other colors should mix in to make it more lively. I also realized a nasty bug on building textures: only 1 texture was ever being picked from the pool of 12. You should see lots of different textures used for buildings now!

Some exploits have been fixed -- thank you guys for reporting them! You shouldn't be able to program your way to stardom or work around part level limitations when putting items together.

I've had some other interesting requests in the forum I want to follow up on. Also, I've posted some rules about modding & making 3089 videos here:

OK, back to work!

Going to tweak how loot drops & item stocking works a bit -- give you more items that you can use immediately (e.g. parts for incomplete items). I also want to improve the graphics a bit, somehow... :P
