Junk Jack v3.2.1 is out!

Hello everyone!
Sorry for the prolonged silence but we're undergoing some internal rearrangement so we took it long!

This is a bugfix/QoL update which fixes a lot of bugs, balances the gameplay experience, improves things here and there and prepares some ground for future changes, here is the full changelog:

  • Chest Interface now is twice as big for better organization
  • Health regen from equip now triggers after 5 second without taking damage from monsters
  • Implemented item sets bonuses : this features allows to give specific bonuses(and effects) when a specific set of items is equipped
  • Created a set for each Uber boss equip drop, now the single equip pieces give less light value, equipping the full set gives the full light value
  • Added tooltip symbols reference(accessed by Help pane, F1, then F2)
  • Added light value to tooltips of armor pieces
  • Added tooltips to some unclear potions
  • Some mobs are now able to see through player invisibility
  • Thorns damage on monsters is now mitigated by their defense
  • Thorns related potions have been buffed
  • Adjusted some thorns bonuses from equip
  • Fixed critical chance of weapons which wasn’t working(all had 0 % critical)
  • Fixed bug which wasn’t updating collections when equipping items or pets
  • Fixed bug which didn’t consume proper amount of items when using simple craft
  • Fixed bug which allowed instant forge crafting
  • Fixed a crash when dropping an item stack into an occupied space in some circumstances
  • Fixed quick stack from forge which didn’t properly move items
  • Fixed craftbook key which was working in creative and crashing the game
  • Fixed Metal Feet potion, now it properly makes you immune to spikes
  • Fixed open save folder option which wasn’t working
  • Fixed a random crash when browsing collections
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when destroying some growing plants
  • Fixed truth table device which wasn’t working as intended
  • Fixed some OpenGL issues on certain graphic cards(now game requires OpenGL 3.2)
  • Changed Bottomless Chest UI color to match the graphics
  • Fixed some weapons which had wrong animations
  • Fixed some graphical glitches
  • Fixed hacked item stacks larger than 999 items which could crash the game
  • Added additional keys to bindable keys
  • Added an option to shop help for some items in their tooltips
  • Changed double confirmation dialogs to be more secure
  • Upgraded build tool for Windows build of the game

Since we had to change the toolchain used to compile the game make sure you have Visual Studio 2017 redistributables if you're playing on Windows! Steam should automatically prompt you to install them in case. The update is rolling out on Windows with macOS and Linux versions following in the next couple of days.

The next big thing will probably be official controller support since many of you requested it! We're already working on it and we hope to share further details soon!

Happy mining!
