Oh goodness, it's here already! Expect your servers to explode in about three seconds...

The gate is looking pretty good! I was just preparing to mod it in, glad there's no need to anymore.

Now I really regret not going to a game development school, my hobbyist C++ skills are most likely not enough. Plus, moving from Domažlice to Prague would be quite a shock. :lol: Oh well, wish you luck with finding a new code monkey!

Please do not let low level work slide because you are scared we are going to moan about lack of content. I want a stable and smooth game first, then content. I can't speak for others but I appreciate work on the engine over content.

Kerbal Space Program is a good example of what happens when you let low-level things slide, the developers have prioritised content over engine capabilities. As a result, you will see many mods try to hack fixes into the game that should have been worked a long time ago.

But on a positive note, it is nice to see how fast you guys are working ;)

And that is a nice looking door. Why didn't the rack make it into the in-game sprite?

In my case, the "get-available-versions" page the automatic updater requests doesn't even list 0.10.1 yet. Maybe rate-limiting downloads to prevent us from killing the server… :-)

I have to agree with JackGruff and really appreciated watching the number of open threads in the bug forums decline during the last 2 weeks.

Beautiful, just beautiful.

Is that an alarm button I see on the wall? Like clicking to lock doors shut? That would be awesome.

PS. Where that changelog at? :p I'd like to see gun turret bug is fixed.

Gates!!!

Don't let my love for conditional barriers imply that I value features over a stable core game. You guys should take as much time as you need to get the core stable and add features when it's rock solid. I personally think the game is ready for an Early Access release on Steam, feature-wise.

If you ever need some inspiration, just remember Chris Sawyer programmed RCT in assembly language. And that game is bulletproof.

Pretty weird, I thought I would try experiment, so uninstalled 10.0, installed 9.8, and when ran it immediately asked if I wanted to update to 10.0. Not 10.1. Hello, anybody care to tell us how to get this? The server is working okay as it was fine with downloading 10.0...

There could never be 1000000 items on belts in Unity I guess.
Well that sounds like a challenge!

Unity would crumble under the weight of 1000000 GameObjects for sure. Which is kinda sad really :(
