1510.00-1510.01

It's that time again, version 1510.00 has been released!

This release sees the ability to sleep added, you can skip the night (or the day) by sleeping in a bed, or the new single-use camp bed. More info on sleeping can be found on the wiki.
Any beds placed before this release will need to be dug, then re-placed before they can be slept in.

We also now have a moving sun and moon, with monthly moon phases. This fits in with the new seasons, you'll see the grass and leaves changing colour in autumn, before the snow fall in winter, and the brightness of spring. The year is a little different in voxelands though: 20 days to the month, 60 days to the season, 240 days to the year. The seasons also affect things like flower growth, grass growth, and apple growth.

More changes come in the tools available: Wooden tools have been removed, and you can no longer dig trees by hand. Basic starter tools now come from small rocks (a random drop from mud) and sticks (crafted from leaves), which we think gives a more realistic and challenging start to the game. More info on the new tools can be found on the getting started wiki page.

We've also added a "death drops inventory" option, with this your inventory will be dropped into a parcel when you die. You can set this in the advanced options of single player to make survival a bit more challenging; this will also be enabled by default on the official servers.
On the subject of servers, there is now an official dynamic server list. All server will announce to this by default, but you can disable it by setting "api_announce = false" in voxelands.conf. You can also set server_name to whatever you want.

Other changes include a new kitten mob added by elky, who also found a better sheep model. There's now mob spawners in the creative chest pre-loaded with mobs, the spawners can be crafted, but there's no way to catch creatures just yet. If you dig an ore or gem that your tool can't collect, the digging will now take longer as a warning. The paper craft recipe now give 3 paper instead of just 1. Furnaces and Incinerators have been updated, these now have an improved shape, and shouldn't randomly rotate themselves as they sometimes did.

There's also been the usual round of bug fixes to make the game more stable.

The download is available as usual from the downloads page.

Version 1510.01 has been released, this fixes bugs with snow in winter, and sleeping. If you only play on multiplayer then you don't need to bother updating, but servers, and singleplayer need the fixes in this.

Also releases will now be every 2 months, instead of monthly, the next planned release is thus 1512.00.

Re: 1510.00-1510.01

That is an (aiui) non-redistributable dll that shouldn't be being required but is because it Visual Studio is being insolent. We're working on it.

Re: 1510.00-1510.01

cHyper and heptan, are you starting new worlds when running this version, or did you copy your old one over? If it's a new world, try removing the world folder and try again.

Also, cHyper what version of windows? 32 or 64 bit?

Re: 1510.00-1510.01

This is (trying to be) the first time I start this game (entirely).
First: I can't see (nor windows file explorer find) any folder (or file) named "world"
Second: I start the exe, the character customization scene shows up, and after I click "done", the above mentioned error message shows up. I don't even reach any menu, or world creation thing. Watch here.

P.S.: Wow, interesting news... Sometimes I reach the menu (mostly when I launch the binary, and quickly after that change to the console and drag it around in the foreground while the game is loading), but the problem is still there, regardless of menu choice.

Re: 1510.00-1510.01

Thanks for the later release. ¿Should I erase the previous version before installing the latest, or can I upgrade it somehow?
