Site Back Up

The THD sites are currently down.

We're looking into what's causing this currently - unfortunately, noone will be able to log in or authenticate with steam until it's resolved.

We'll keep you in the loop as much as possible.

Thanks for your patience,
Max

Edit: things seem to be working again, we'll be monitoring the situation. Sorry for the interruption.

Build 2048 - Hotfix before The Weekend

Hey Everyone,

This is a minor build with a small pass of fixes for issues that came up with the last build.

The terrain resolution stuff has been replaced (again!) as the previous approach was causing lots of troubles. This one basically tries a widening search for a "safe" location, but because an exhaustive search would be incredibly CPU-intensive, it tries a stochastic (partly random) search. This means it will not always find optimal solutions and there's still "jumping"/"teleporting" - but hopefully it's "good enough" for the rare cases you get stuck in terrain anyway.

Let us know if you have new troubles with this new approach! If there's still major trouble, we'll go back to the original solution. Finding a good, reliable solution for this that works with the existing physics implementation and over the network is a nightmare. If it turns out to be a beehive, we'd rather go back to a known-tolerable solution than keep kicking it.

Other Fixes and changes in this build:

  • Vote pass/fail rules changed
    there's been a lot of complaints about this one, so we've tried another system suggested by the community. To pass, the yes votes must at least outnumber the no votes by 2. This still works with low participation (2 votes vs 0, or 3 votes vs 1) but requires a firm majority. We'll open discussion on a better solution for this long term as soon as we can.
  • Boulders not attributing kills has been fixed.
  • Arrows no longer collide with hearts
    There's some disagreement within the team about exactly how these should behave, but for this build at least, arrows do not collide with hearts, and have a smaller collision shape as well.
  • A few GUI tweaks to fix things that were out of alignment and hard to read.
  • Fixed crates falling through platforms.

Let us know what you think, and Have Fun!

Max

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”
