1504.00-1504.01

Release time again! 1504.00 is here.

Put your headphones on because we've been playing with sound again. There's now background music in the main menu and character creator, and whole lot of new sounds in-game including ambient lava, water and fire sounds, some new walking sounds, sheep bleating, wolves howling, deer making whatever the noise is they make, mob footsteps, other players' footsteps, and other players' digging. It's made the whole world a lot more immersive.

Other quite noticable changes include a new crosshair, new brick textures, and the new hunger/health icons don't disappear when they're down to 0%. Swords are also now more effective at killing mobs than spears, but you need spears to catch fish.

We've also cut down on the mob's network data a bit, cleaned out some legacy code that wasn't being used, made compiling on windows a little easier, and removed many of the compiler warnings. The readme has been replaced with something more updated, and we fixed the bug where shovels couldn't be crafted with jungle planks.

Leaf decay received a work over; decaying leaves no longer drop saplings, instead they drop leaves (surprise!) which will either become a preplanted sapling when they touch the ground, or some long grass if there's already a sapling nearby. I did a little video of this happening.

We also fixed player file loading filling debug.txt with masses of messages, made chat text print to standard output on the client, and made the username prefill with your system username. We're also one step closer to having a dynamic server list, with some api urls added to the builtin http server.

Downloads are available from the downloads page as usual.

Version 1504.01 has now been released, this fixes the problems with the windows build. Source, Mac, and Windows downloads for 1504.01 are now available.
An experimental Ubuntu/Debian Package is available here. This was built and tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

I can't wait to test this out. Nice idea for the trees, because that cleans up a lot of mess naturally wink

Re: 1504.00-1504.01

We never include a config file, it will save any settings you change, otherwise it'll just use the defaults... and you can always use your previous config file.
Looks like there's an issue with older windows versions, we're looking into it.
