I got camp fires working and set up a fancy new UI system for object interaction. While the effect may not look like it took me an entire day, I assure you it did.
A lot of the time spent on the camp fire was used to get it working with the mod files properly. I want to make sure all of you wonderful people can make your own custom camp fire objects!
Dropped Item, They Be Floaty Now
Look at those things float! Exciting stuff huh? Took me a bit but I polished the motion on them to look a bit better than they used to.
Really Optimized Chunk Loading
I really cleaned up the chunk loading code. It now loads just about instantly thanks to buffers!
More Amazing Art From Panos
Panos has delivered even more amazing art to Project Explore. He resized all the trees to look a bit more, tree-like. We now have a total of four different trees! They eventually will be separated into their proper biomes but for now, enjoy them all at once.
The New And Improved Inventory
Panos did an amazing job of re-designing the inventory and that's about all there is to it. Programming-wise, I just resized a few things and moved some buttons around. He really has made quite an impact on the game.
Survey Results: "What Do You Think About The Rework?"
How do you feel about the new visuals?
I love it (33%)
It's definitely better than before (55%)
Looks like crap (11%, actually only one person who didn't even fill out the whole form lol)
How do you feel about mod support?
I can't wait! (43%)
Sounds interesting (43%)
Meh, doesn't matter to me (14%)
What does this survey tell me? The general user base seems satisfied with the upcoming changes which means that I as a developer can push forward, fear free into the abyss of which many step into and do not return... A sanctum for humanities creations in which nothing is held back but instead is drawn forth by force unseen by the eye, but can be easily spotted by the mind.
I'll keep working and Panos will keep being amazing. Bye bye for now!
