Terasology is an open-source survival and discovery game with influences from Minecraft, Dwarf Fortress, and Dungeon Keeper. The game is in a pre-alpha state, but it's already fun to play! Build #24 has been released!
- Lots more graphic wizardry by @begla - Terasology has never looked better (1, 2, 3)! Also may be performing better / working better on some systems, and audio got better too
- There is also a standalone "TeraEd.exe" now for easier 3d wizardry refinement where shader settings and such can be modified in extreme detail
- Some more Gradle tweaks, checkstyle stuff, and Launcher prep by @mkalb
- Fences and rails by @Adeon and @A'nW along with other block shape work and the tutorials (1, 2)
- Chunk refactoring by @Panserbjoern
- Couple nice changes by @Skaldarnar so you can now immediately replace plant type blocks and throw containers with their contains maintained within them! Which seems strangely neat
- Assorted improvements by @Immortius like how modules now can have dependencies on each others or how our volume controls actually work! Most his work is still on the multiplayer branch
- Some jar switchery by @ahoehma
- Initial clues by myself and @Stuthulhu for a content piece that'll hopefully become a substantial part of the next big build - involving creatures and primitive societal development (sort of like miniions but without the player)
- A fix for an OpenGL issue encountered on multiple Mac systems by philip-wernersbach
- Assorted minor fixes by @sdab + @Xeano + @jamoozy
- And last but not least I finally went and grabbed the many new plants from @metouto that had made it into the forum a little while back
So while not exactly the most interesting release for playing it lays a lot of needed behind the scenes stuff for the future!
QuoteOther stuff going on include multiplayer as mentioned, @aherber is still making updates to his combat branch and it is getting surprisingly sophisticated, @Adeon is playing with minecarts, and we did the Leap prototype
This game will be super fun once multiplayer is in, I will be playing a far bit of it I think. Especially since they actually focus on the graphics options as well.
Hope to see more out of this one, the progress is amazing and since it's free and open source - I would far prefer it over Minecraft!
