CraftWorld v2.10 Submitted!
Patch inbound ladies and gentlement! The v2.10 update for CraftWorld has finally been submitted to Microsoft for review. Assuming all goes well, and they are quick, you could have this update as soon as this weekend!
Bug fixes are nice, but you guys are have really been crying out for some new toys to play with. Well, we’ve added one of the big ones; propogating water (varying heights) and buckets! You will now encounter waterfalls, streams and flowing creeks in your exploration of CraftWorld.
Wooden buckets can also be crafted from wooden planks to haul about the water to your own hand crafted ponds and moats. Buckets wear out after 10 uses, so be sure to always have plenty of wood on hand.
Fences as mentioned in a previous post are also arriving in v2.10, and may be placed as posts, or stacked into a sort of scaffolding. They have extra tall collision, and auto jump fails to even trigger when running into them. Making them just perfect for keeping zombies, pigs, sheep and the other wee beaties locked up. The addition of a gate turns your pet prision into something a little more farm friendly.
Explosions have been changed also. The logic that drives the damage they cause has been replaced with a pressure system instead of a random system. They cut out an area around them, dealing damage to blocks close to the epicenter. Detonating a dynamite crate, with you hiding behind a solid wall of Adamantium will now be something that is safe to do. This also means that if you wrap a peice of dynamite in solid stone, then detonate it, the explosion will be forced out of the gap, and do more damage over a greater distance!
What’s coming later?
Theres a point where we stop adding, and start cleaning up ready for a release. Metal buckets and lava are still too buggy for release right now, so will be appearing in v2.11. Material permutations are a huge and complex changeset, and will be fully completed and made availible also in v2.11. There will also be a new creative menu dedicated to just dyes, in creative mode, with new blocks availible in the extra space.
Dye Crafting will also be availible in v2.11. If we can, we will break up the v2.11 update into two smaller updates.
Coming in the release post on this blog! Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
Note: These changes also apply to the BlockWorld v1.2 patch which is still in development.
