Birds of Prey! - Update 1.4.0

This update adds three new species to Equilinox, including eagles, jelly fish, and a special jungle plant! The full list of changes in this update is as follows:

New Features
  • Eagles! These birds live in the mountains but can swoop down to nearby biomes to go hunting for smaller animals. When they catch their prey they carry it back to the nest to feed their young.
  • Jellyfish! These strange fish will sting any fish that come too close and can be genetically modified to be harmless or very effective killers.
  • The jungle has one new bush species which blooms spectacularly only once a year.
  • One new task has been added.

Tweaks
  • Foxes can now also hunt small mammals as well as chickens.
  • The requirements for unlocking the wolf have been changed.

Bug Fixes
  • Foxes are no longer able to hunt underwater!
  • Fixed the issue with unclickable meat models (all meat previously in your world will still be unclickable, but will be fixed after a while. All new meat will be fine).
  • Fixed an issue where the R key wasn't resetting the camera in some situations.



If you're interested in seeing how I implemented the eagles into Equilinox last week then you can check out this devlog video:

More Fish! - Update 1.3.0

This week there are four new species of fish to unlock as well as a few useful improvements to the UI.



New Features
  • Four new types of fish to unlock!
  • The shops now have a search option, allowing you to search for a species by its name.
  • Clicking on a locked species now gives you more information about how to unlock it.
  • Old notifications are stored in the notification log, in the "Stats and Info" tab.
  • One new task to do with the new fish.
  • In the "Stats and Info" panel (previously called "Progress" panel), in the checklists for the plants and animals you can now click on an arrow button to go to the chosen species in the world.

Tweaks
  • The "Progress" tab has been renamed and has a new icon to better reflect its content.
  • When clicking on the notification for a newly evolved species, the "Species Information" panel gets shown, allowing you to quickly read about the species before moving it to a new habitat.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with transplanting where the home area was not always updated.
  • Doves should be easier to evolve now.
  • Renamed a couple of misleading species names (species that had the same name as a category, such as "Desert Tree").

That's everything for this week! The updates will be a bit more frequent from now on, now that I'm back to work on Equilinox after the holidays.

Let me know if you have any suggestions or have found any other bugs! You can contact me directly at any time by emailing me at thinmatrix@gmail.com or get in touch on the Discord server: https://discord.gg/ktsWT8Q

Hope you're all having a lovely start to 2019!

About This Game

Equilinox is a sandbox nature game in which you can create and nurture your own diverse, dynamic, evolving ecosystem of plants and animals!

Create

You create ecosystems by placing plants and animals into your world. Different plants will make the terrain more fertile allowing wildlife to flourish, while animals will begin to earn you points which can be used to purchase various in-game resources.

Nurture

Every plant and animal has its own life-cycle, behaviors and requirements, so you need to ensure that each species is satisfied with its environment, has enough resources, and that the ecosystems are balanced. Healthy, happy animals will live longer, breed more, and earn you more points.

Evolve

The points you earn can also be used to genetically modify your species, allowing you to manipulate the traits and behaviors of your species for various benefits. You can also evolve your current wildlife to unlock more exotic plants, trees and creatures.

Progress

There are multiple in-game tasks that can be completed to gain rewards such as extra diversity points or new content. Some tasks can be repeated, making it possible to farm certain plants and animals to receive a regular income of diversity points.
