Build 1.3.6.9 - New Parts

Ended up adding a two new parts for this update.

Glow Ball



The glow ball is very light and will float, barely being affected by gravity. It gives off light and will turn on solar panel, shine through magnifying glasses, etc. The is two sizes. The larger one casts light over more distance.


Change-A-Ball



The Change-A-Ball will change balls types whenever it hits another part with enough force. Its starting shape can be chosen.


Bug Fixes

There were also a couple bug fixes.

  • Added missing message for the sled
  • Fixed a crash bug in the physics engine. It was very rare, but could happen if just the right combination of events occurred. Was most likely to happen on contraptions that had been running for a longer amount of time.


Next Update

The next update will be on October 15th with new rope type parts.

“Contraption Maker is from the makers of that genre-defining classic, and it's already a recognisable heir to the throne...It's already worth your time and money.”
PC Gamer

“It's an amazing game and I love it to pieces”
Markiplier

“It is a from-the-ground-up modernization, with enough familiar elements to instantly excite old fans of The Incredible Machine and enough modern touches to fuel the imaginations of gamers who have never touched the original.”
