October 10th – Integration

On Wednesday we finally merged the massive status system changes, including the new status effect system, into our main development branch. Those who are following the nightly builds have probably noticed some major differences, lots of improvements, and a few things still missing. The past couple of days have been spent finding and fixing bugs, adding missing Lua bindings, cleaning up old status effects and adding new ones. GeorgeV, Necotho and Armagon continue their development of more biomes and biome items, and we’ve been coming up with lots of good ways to use the new status system and status effects to make biomes and their items feel unique and interesting. Next week we’ll be reworking the food and hunger system in ways that make it less of a chore and more of a bonus. More on that soon; have a great weekend!
