It’s Monday, the start of a brand new week! Those of you with a keen eye might recognise that the art team have been going through the tiered biomes one by one and updating them with new graphics, content, structures and so on. Today we’ve been tackling the bio-luminescent sub-biome, which means new things, including fireflies and glowing blocks – A first for building! What do you think? This biome must be one of the easiest to traverse at night, huh?
The art team have been adding new furniture pieces and biome content for the next update. As we’ve shown before, collecting different furniture sets from biomes can reward you with unique and interesting tenants for your colonies. For example, this furniture set will encourage a merchant who sells lights to move in!
These familiar creatures were spotted roaming around the new alpine biome today! They wouldn’t confirm whether or not they were wearing a costume, though, or what the costume was meant to be. In fact, they got quite defensive. I wonder what their deal is?
Tccoxon and Healthire’s NPC reactions continue to liven up colonies and towns, too! These NPCs are playing air hockey together. Realism!
Healthire and Tccoxon have been working on NPC interactions/reactions, so here’s a quick example of that! :D
If you’ve got a teleporter in your colony, NPCs will use it. But are they really the same NPCs when they come out or have their atoms been copied rather than moved, essentially killing their former selves for the sake of convenient travel?
We met so many lovely people at Minecon — if you were one of them, it was an an absolute pleasure to meet you! Events are fun. :D
Today, Tccoxon and Healthire have been doing some work on NPC reactions.
Kyren has been working on performance stuff, and Metadept has been working on terrain. Specifically, he’s trying to improve blending between different sectors and reduce the number of caves on the surface. He’s sent over some images from the utility he’s using to do this, and it’s… trippy.‘Til tomorrow! <3 <3
I believe I said something about a sneak peak at some of the new special furniture sets. :D Here’s a look at a saloon-themed set!
I’m personally excited about these themed sets — they’re going to allow for so much more variety and creativity in decorating builds! What do you guys think? What kind of furniture sets would you like to see?
Happy Monday, everyone! It’s super summery here in London, which is weird. I didn’t think London had actual summers.
We’ve been working on some special furniture sets, as well as continued work on sub-biomes and microdungeons. I can’t show you any of those today, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to give you a sneak peek at some cool furniture tomorrow!
For now, here’s another one of Metadept’s experimental weapons. I’m pretty excited about this one!
P.S – We’ll be at Minecon in London from 4-5 July, so come see our booth if you’re around! Play some Starbound with us! :D
