You can now redirect water with your shovel. Simply dig next to a water tile and the water will flood in! This will be extremely useful for people who want to grow a farm (water will speed up the growing process) or protect their kingdom walls with a moat! In the future, we'll also allow you to fill in these waterways with dirt, sand, and soil!

Emotes will now show when you are hungry, type a message, or when you're in combat! More emotes will be added along with custom emotes for increased communication between you and your friends.

Edit:
Somebody requested that I change the blinding red chat color. Here is the new red:

Firstly, great job, the game is coming along very nicely. On a side note, any plans for swimming?

There already is swimming. I'm just waiting for ICT to add the swimming sprites and graphics so I can post the update.

Awesome. Can't wait to see some game play videos of all these features. Perhaps we could have an addon to water squares that make them infested with certain things? (I'm thinking sharks) To prevent the unwanted from sneaking in of course. xD

I don't think sharks will be viable in rivers, but I will add traps later on which will hurt enemies. Also, I'll probably add ravenous dogs that will attack anybody nearby (except the owner of course...)

Just hope there won't as much lag as in Haven and Hearth :p

So far there isn't any lag ;)

I'll be sure to keep testing for lag and optimizing as I go.

This is looking awesome cant wait to see more sprites, also, do you have plans for more variations in vegetation (trees, bushes, ect)

There already is a lot of variation of vegetation, but I'll extend it later in the different biomes I'll add.
