Generates only regionally. [2020/8/25] Wisps have a very small chance to spawn whenever players use teleports or the cloaking device. [2020/8/25] Added wisp nests to Jarkati. Very rare. They spawn at mapgen-time. [2020/8/25] Fixed a long-standing bug with teleports, in which an intended feature was actually missing for an entire year! [2020/8/25] Cheating players now have Jaunt/Cloak/Big-Hotbar features automatically revoked. (Such players probably cheated the Survival Challenge.) [2020/8/24] Known cheaters are now automatically booted out of town by law enforcement if caught tresspassing near other players. Use those city blocks! [2020/8/23] Started coding 'exile' mod, for cheaters. Should be fun. [2020/8/22] Fixed an exploit allowing cheating players to block the exit gate from the Outback. [2020/8/21] Cloak ability: added particle effects. [2020/8/16] Fixed sky bugs, added clouds to other realms. [2020/8/16] Added new chat-command: 'chkbed'.

Player can place regular, permanent protectors by crafting a KEY, or by using the advanced protectors instead (which never expire). [2020/2/18] Grant a basic protector to new players the first time they craft a PoC. This is to assist new players in guarding their stuff, considering how difficult it is to find mese by mining. A future update will make these into "timed" protectors, which expire after some time. [2020/2/18] Players may not place protectors near the Outback gate's exit location in the overworld. Existing protectors, if any, are left untouched. However, if their owner digs them, they won't be able to put them back until the gate moves again …. [2020/2/18] Added secret stone and rackstone trapdoors. [2020/2/18] Grant some cash to player the first (and only the first) time they craft a PoC.

[2020/2/17] Returned the Outback's reset timer to 30 days. Protections for important locations should hopefully solve the griefing problems. [2020/2/17] Players' bones are now preserved when the Outback resets, and will remain in the realm. [2020/2/17] Reduce cost of vending/depositing machines & the market booth. New players may need to rely on these. [2020/2/17] Added protectors to important locations in the Outback dimension.

[2020/2/7] Replaced the chat-alert-sound with something that sounds better, less annoying. [2020/2/7] Reduced volume on all the footstep sounds. They seemed too loud compared to the rest of the ambiance. [2020/2/6] Added an eerie sound for obsidian gateways. [2020/2/6] Added a soft, perpetual wind sound to the surfaces of the Overworld, Channelwood, and Jarkati. [2020/2/6] Edited some sounds to remove non-zero-energy starts (which can cause clicks and pops). [2020/2/6] Redesigned ambiance system for better realism w.r.t. bird/insect sounds using a technique involving entities. Unfortunately, this tecnique cannot be backwards-applied to existing trees, etc. So if you want the bird/insect sounds back, you'll need to cut down and replant your trees. The upside is that these sounds no longer play in the open wastes, where there are no trees .... [2020/2/5] Added GUI pageflip and button-press sounds. [2020/2/5] Added a whole bunch more doors. Adjusted some recipes. [2020/2/5] Use a better, more dusty-looking formspec background everywhere, instead of the boring builtin one.

[2020/2/5] * A C Q U I T T A L * [2020/2/4] Player gets damaged 1/2 heart whenever stuff is destroyed because player dug it while their inventory was full. This warns player that material was destroyed, and discourages player from leaving drops everywhere (which may lag server) while mining. [2020/2/4] Cobble/ice/netherack no longer auto-pop into player's inventory when holding shift. Use 'E' to auto-collect these items. This helps with TNT mining.

[2018/3/9] Salt water is now placeable above ground, in places where regular water is discouraged. This is because the sources do not spread and multiply, so it is difficult to create a liquid grief with them. Players can use salt water as a water-substitute for most things. [2018/3/9] As a byproduct of fission reactor operation, water in the shielding chamber gradually changes to salt water. [2018/3/9] Fixed an issue where the website could not display the chatlog due to some players’ chat containing invalid UTF-8 sequences.

[2017/12/30] Respawning players, new players, and players using the PoC to teleport are positioned a little more randomly to prevent player bunching. [2017/12/30] Increased cURL timeout value to try and prevent the server from dropping out of the master server listing. It still disappears sometimes, dunno why. [2017/12/27] All trunk nodes can now be cut with the circular saw. [2017/12/27] Added missing walls registration for whitestone cobble. [2017/12/26] Added more xpanes registrations for darkage and gloopores glass nodes. [2017/12/25] Switched auth system to use 'sauth' mod in order to tame auth-related lag. Everybody's information should have been migrated successfully. [2017/12/25] Fixed a bug in the rewrite of the ambiance mod. Updated craft recipes for wrought iron lattice and wrought iron pane. [2017/12/25] Mossy cobble can now be directly crafted into stairs & slabs. [2017/12/25] Extended the number of wood-reinforced nodes from Darkage. [2017/12/25] Fixed bugs in the stairs mod related to accidentally modifying function arguments. [2017/12/25] All stairs, slabs & microblocks inherit reduced light source values from their parent nodes.

This removes the need to compute radiation on top of the regular heat damage. If you have lost uranium due to this change, just let me know and I'll give you raw ore to replace it. [2017/12/9] Removed all corium from the game and aliased it to lava. This reduces the complexity somewhat. [2017/12/9] Added helpful tooltip hints to the descriptions of several machines. [2017/12/9] Increased fall-damage for landing on spikes. Decreased fall damage for landing on wool, sand and snowblocks. [2017/12/9] The change to torches allowing them to be taken from protected areas has been reverted. Torches follow the standard protection rules. [2017/12/9] Spark and smoke particles removed from torches in order to lighten the processing load. Fire nodes still throw particles, but at a lower rate. [2017/12/8] Walking on rock/moonstone/salt spikes hurts now. [2017/12/8] Rock/moonstone/salt spikes can be rotated with the screwdriver. They get a random rotation when placed.

[2017/11/28] Added LV repair shop for tools. Can repair tools the anvil cannot, making it a worthwhile upgrade, if you don't mind waiting for the repairs to complete. [2017/11/27] Added rock drill. Use the charging machine to charge it. [2017/11/27] Added chainsaw and charging machine. [2017/11/26] Gas is now highly flammable. Careful with those torches! [2017/11/25] Gas tends to drift downward. Any gas released extinguishes nearby torches. [2017/11/25] Height of cactus or papyrus growth is now randomized every time the plant grows after being harvested. [2017/11/25] Cactus & papyrus growth switched over to nodetimer-based system. Original growing ABMs are disabled. [2017/11/25] Ladders are now self-supporting. [2017/11/25] Papyrus is now a self-supporting plant. Less fragile when harvesting. [2017/11/25] New players do not get gold on first join. Prevents gold inflation. [2017/11/25] Tree trunks are mostly flat, so walking speed on them is normalized instead of slowed down. [2017/11/25] Added transparency to many leaves textures (like those in moretrees) which were previously solid-colored. [2017/11/24] Hopefully fixed a freeze & CPU hog in PvP code. Removed line-of-sight check, as this caused it. [2017/11/24] Craft guide updated to show accurate input requirements for non-standard recipes. Also, recipes with 2 outputs now show both outputs. Should remove confusion. [2017/11/23] Bones regenerate if prematurely destroyed. Last-ditch effort to fix that darn problem with missing bones and lost items! [2017/11/23] CLUs now useable as machine upgrades. [2017/11/23] Changed CLU `stack_max' to 1. [2017/11/22] Restored ability to use RE Batteries as upgrades in Technic machines. [2017/11/22] Snow on trees now less annoying. Does not spawn icemen. Easy to dig. Does not drop onto ground below. Should not be obtainable. [2017/11/22] Fixed some issues with multiline descriptions not being handled correctly. [2017/11/22] Snow with footprints now always diggable, just like fresh snow. [2017/11/22] Torches no longer allowed to replace `buildable_to' nodes within areas protected by someone other than the torch placer.

[2017/11/20] Added carbon steel armor & shield. [2017/11/20] PvP blocked if combatants are too far apart or there is wall between. Nixes some PvP exploits. [2017/11/20] Pass through rightclicks while player is wielding snow. [2017/11/20] Server preemptively teleports player to a respawn point if they join the game while dead. Nixes a potential PvP exploit. [2017/11/19] Coal & kalite torches can be stolen if outside an area marked as part of the city. Iron torches are always safe. [2017/11/19] Added building over spawn to hide the 0,0,0 point. Stray inert entities sometimes appear here. The problem is not actually fixable except in the engine. [2017/11/19] Updated multiple item descriptions; added hints to some of them (saplings in particular). [2017/11/19] Increased firetree fruit protection time from 3 to 6 seconds per fruit. Note that eating multiple fruit will stack the time. [2017/11/18] Fixed a bug in the bones code which the previous change introduced. [2017/11/17] Updated bones code, improved bone messages. Removed a few loopholes. [2017/11/15] Oerkki drop more leather when killed. [2017/11/13] Invisible (fully melted) snow no longer has footstep sounds. [2017/11/13] If player dies while holding a chest open, the chest is closed. [2017/11/12] Snow with footsteps turns back to snow after falling. Also: footsteps are now randomly rotated, to break up the visual pattern. [2017/11/12] Removed `Unbreakable Stone Brick' from taking up space in the CG.

[2017/11/6] Two-way travel between Surface City and Nether City now possible. [2017/11/6] Using 8 nyancat rainbows to surround a diamond-teleporter now gives it 31K of range. Such a teleport costs 0 mossycobble or lilies to use. [2017/11/5] New snow footstep sounds. [2017/11/5] Mapping kit now craftable from any wood, not just regular planks. [2017/11/4] Added mapping kit from Minetest Game, and tweaked mod to allow map to be placed as node. [2017/11/4] Liquids (such as lava) now placable in same liquid, this allows lava sources to be placed in flowing lava. Thanks to sorcerykid. [2017/11/3] Footprints in snow are sunken slightly to simulate packing down the snow. Makes the footprints easier to see.

[2017/10/24] Fixed some previously undiscovered crashes caused by copy-pasta errors in the Technic code. [2017/10/24] Fixed some bugs related to killing players while they are in bed. [2017/10/24] Players now lose their home position (set with bed) if killed by another player. Added an extra warning to Survival Challenge rules so players aren't caught by surprise. [2017/10/24] Updated rules text for the Survival Challenge. [2017/10/24] Survival Challenge updated. You can now sleep in a bed to avoid losing the Challenge if you die. [2017/10/24] Reduced respawn count for beds from 16 to 8. This makes sleeping frequently a bit more important. [2017/10/20] Fixed an exploit with bandages that people discovered, that allowed a player to 'resurrect' themselves after dying.

[2017/9/23] Put 3D armor strength back to 0.5, where it used to be. Full strength armor caused mobs to be unable to damage players, and rebalancing that is too difficult to be worth the trouble. [2017/9/22] Fixed another bug in the market formspec. [2017/9/22] Restored 3D armor to 'default' strength (1.0, instead of 0.5) because players were finding it too weak to be worth it. [2017/9/22] Fixed annoying bug in the market formspec that caused players to get stuck unable to close the formspec if they had an older client.

New players can view the shop list immediately on join. [2017/9/18] Replaced welcome-mat chat messages (which were hacky and easily missed) with a formspec shown on new-player join. A different formspec is shown to returning players. [2017/9/18] Server now sends chat to players by default, since newer clients that don't do chat-prediction are becomming more common. [2017/9/17] Tweaked tool balance. Copper tools dig fast but wear out quickly. Mese and iron tools last longer. Titanium now lasts longer than gem tools. [2017/9/17] Renamed bronze tools to copper tools, and adjusted tool recipes accordingly. Bronze tools were too hard to make and did not give enough value. [2017/9/17] Voltage Transformers carry 1,000 EU per/sec now instead of 100 EU per/sec. [2017/9/17] Tweaked mesefuel balance to restore it being worthwhile to use mese as fuel. [2017/9/17] Added facedir param to several brick-type nodes. [2017/9/17] Restored original craft recipes for mese/crystals/fragments. The grinding recipes had made the game too hard.

[2017/9/1] All EU-producing machines now provide power to the network directly, removing the necessity of having a battery. You still need a battery to store a large amount of EUs, however. [2017/9/1] LV, MV, & HV fuel-fired generators produce more EUs than before. [2017/8/30] Fixed mesefuel bug. Mesefuel is no longer insanely overpowered. [2017/8/30] Technic machines (version 2) now obtainable in-game. Please tell me about any bugs! Balancing still needed, most likely. [2017/8/31] Fixed a crash in the solar code.

This means you can use torches. [2017/8/25] Inventory item stacking limited to 64. This was a long-planned change. 64 was chosen because there is already an obvious precedent. [2017/8/25] Items burn up in lava much quicker, with particle effects. [2017/8/25] Player-rename algorithm works on itemframes & pedestals too. [2017/8/25] Conversion between the 3 forms of mese now requires a compressor and grinder. [2017/8/25] Added particles when eating. [2017/8/25] Added swimming and scuba particles for players in water.

Stamina is restored a little bit faster, and you can run slightly faster than I initially allowed. [2017/8/6] Added a sound effect for respawning players. [2017/8/6] The 'error' sound effect now plays for a bunch of additional error conditions. (Used to be heard only with vending machines.) [2017/8/6] Added sound effect for teleporting. Shamelessly copied from Xanadu. [2017/8/5] Added sprinting mod, tweaked to include a few gotchas & integrate better with existing hunger & stamina.

Dirt with snow may be crafted. [2017/7/11] Added a new grass type, `Coarse Grass`, to go with regular grass and junglegrass. [2017/7/11] Fixed a bug in the default flora spread algorithm. Param2 is now respected. [2017/7/11] Modified drawspec for junglegrass slightly. [2017/7/11] Added crushing recipes. The crushing machine is slow, and cannot perform fine grinding work. [2017/7/11] Added crushing machine, by player request. Essential design from JT2. [2017/7/11] Removed craft recipe for dry leaves and added a cooking recipe, which makes more sense. [2017/7/11] Added more wall types from various default metal blocks, including tin. Idea credit goes to sorcerykid of JT2, where I first saw this. [2017/7/10] Added tin ore to the nether.
