Equilinox Creative Mode!

Create beautiful low-poly scenes, mushroom pixel art, giant swarms of bees, and much, much more in the new Creative Mode!



Creative mode is finally here! This fully-sandbox mode allows you to place as many plants and animals as you want without any environmental restrictions, plus you can modify their traits for free! There are also various new tools that have been added to this game mode to make scene creation a bit easier.

Creative Mode Features:
  • Unlimited placing of plants/animals.
  • Unlimited trait modification.
  • New color customization options.
  • The ability to "duplicate" an object, copying all its traits.
  • Hold M when placing to place multiple objects at once.
  • Hold N when placing animals to place a "swarm" of animals.
  • Day/Night cycle controls.


And that's not all! There are also a few other improvements and features in this update, including one new species: Dolphins! The full list of changes in this update can be found below:

New Features
  • Two new game modes: Creative and Simulation mode.
  • Dolphins! These aquatic mammals dive in and out of the water when they're happy.
Tweaks
  • Environmental Factors are now always displayed in the same order.
  • Beavers and Deer now also have a color trait, allowing you to modify their colors.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed overlapping task requirements on smaller displays.
  • Water mesh should no longer clip through the edges of the world.
  • Newly evolved land species can no longer accidentally spawn in the water.
  • Only full-grown Healblooms now produce seeds.
  • Fixed a crash caused by meerkat movement.
  • Fixed an issue where double-clicking the "Generate" new world button would cause task progress to get wiped on the previous world.
  • Fixed a problem with display resolution when swapping to a lower resolution monitor.



Please let me know if you have any suggestions, feedback, or if you find any bugs, and please do send me screenshots of your creations in the new Creative Mode!

Meerkats and More! - Update 1.6.0

There are three new species to unlock in this update including meekats, the first burrowing animal in Equilinox! There are also two new tasks to complete and an interesting new rock formation which you can use to add more variety to your landscapes.



The full list of changes in this update is as follows:

New Features
  • Meerkats! These burrowing animals dig a network of holes and tunnels in their territory and use them for transport and to hide from predators. They also often stand on their back two legs to keep an eye out for danger.
  • Two new plant species to unlock. Desert grass provides a new food source for desert biome animals, and the marigolds are pretty flowers which can live in higher altitude woodland areas.
  • Two new tasks to complete, one to do with the eagles and one involving the new meerkats.
  • A new type of rock which looks rather nice in desert landscapes.

Bug Fixes
  • When placing objects in the world the placement UI no longer overlaps with text from other UIs (was mostly a problem with the notification UI).
  • Guinea pigs no longer run off the edge of the world while "Panicking".

If you'd like to take a behind-the-scenes look at how I went about implementing the meerkats into Equilinox then you can check out last week's devlog video:

Also, I realize that I forgot to put out an announcement on Steam for the previous update of Equilinox, Update 1.5! So in case you missed it, there are now flies and carnivorous plants in the game. These plants are able to grab passing flies with their long "tongues" before consuming them.



I hope you enjoy the updates and if you have any questions, issues, or feedback then please do send me an email to thinmatrix@gmail.com.

You can also see more regular updates about Equilinox on my Youtube channel or on my Twitter page.

About This Game

Equilinox is a relaxing nature game which allows you to create and nurture your very own diverse ecosystem of plants and animals. Sit back, start growing, and watch your world blossom and evolve in front of you!

Create


You can start creating your ecosystems by placing plants and animals into your world. Having a variety of plants and trees will make the terrain more fertile and allow wildlife to flourish, while animals will begin to earn you points which can be used to purchase various in-game resources.

Nurture


Every animal and plant has its own life-cycle, unique 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.

Get Creative!


Equilinox also has a fully sandbox mode where you can place as many plants and animals as you like, plus you can genetically modify them to your heart's content! Create swarms of super fast pink wolves, high bouncing rainbow sheep, pixel art made from colored mushrooms, beautiful low-poly scenes, or anything else that you can think of. The possibilities are endless!
