Planet Nomads - 501idni
Hello Nomads,

We have just released 0.9.8.1 update into official branch, so everyone can enjoy our latest features.

The recap of changes follows.

Tool changes:
  • change in tool usage - now you can have multiple different Tools in the Hot Bar
  • added Mover Tool for moving blocks
  • split Emergency Tool and classic Multitool functionality - the first uses only Suit power, the latter only Batteries
  • enlarged default player inventory by 2 slots

Other Changes:
  • updated Unity engine to 2018.3.5f1
  • added Thermoregulator block and fixed thermal regeneration in different occasions
  • added slight boost to player movement while accelerating from standing to motion
  • faster mining with mining machines, but mining is now limited - you can harvest only certain amount of resouces on one place
  • custom POI in map - you can mark a point by mouse click in map, compass will show you the way there
  • save files are now compressed

Hello Nomads,

We've just released a hotfix for yesterday's update to the Experimental Branch.

Here is the list of bugs fixed:
  • fixed error while switching from Mover Tool to other tool or block
  • fixed loss of Weapons and Tools during update to 0.9.8.0 (however, you need to open your original save - saves with items already missing will not recover it)
  • fixed remembering of disabled resources in Miner settings
  • fixed Solar Panels working at night

Hello Nomads!

The new update 0.9.8.0 is on your way. You can try it in the Experimental branch.

BUT BE CAREFUL!
We have implemented save file compression and older versions of the game (prior to 0.9.8.0) are incompatible with the new compressed saves. This update will compress all your saves on the first launch, so it might free some storage space in case you have a lot of big saves.

However, we strongly recommend you to backup ALL your save files BEFORE launching the new version (with the _main.db of course - you can find more details in discussions). Once compressed, you will not be able to use your saves in older versions of the game.


Now for other changes we have prepared in this release: We have added a new Mover Tool for moving blocks and we also plan to add a Scanner Tool for some story purposes we will reveal later. This is a fair bunch of tools at your disposal, so we had to change the way how tools are managed a little bit.

The "tool button" on keyboard (T by default) now brings your Emergency Tool - not the best tool available but one that is always ready to do basic work using your suit energy. You can carry better tools in your inventory and equip them to your hotbar, just remember the fact, that they cannot be powered by the suit and need its own batteries.


The full list of changes follows.

Tool changes:
  • change in tool usage - now you can have multiple different Tools in the Hot Bar
  • added Mover Tool for moving blocks
  • split Emergency Tool and classic Multitool functionality - the first uses only Suit power, the latter only Batteries
  • enlarged default player inventory by 2 slots

  • updated Unity engine to 2018.3.5f1
  • added Thermoregulator block and fixed thermal regeneration in different occasions
  • added slight boost to player movement while accelerating from standing to motion
  • faster mining with mining machines, but mining is now limited - you can harvest only certain amount of resouces on one place
  • custom POIs in map - you can mark a point by mouse click in map, compass will show you the way there
  • save files are now compressed - see the warning above!

Hello Nomads,

This is (I hope) the last experimental release before pushing 0.9.7 to the public.

We have temporarily reduced the difficulty of survival in bad weather and cold and hot biomes. We realized from your feedback that it is hard to be there without proper tools, that we do not have ready for you yet.

In the near future you will enjoy the thermometer, heating/cooling block and some further changes of temperature with day/night, in water etc.

Here is the usual list of changes:
  • reduced the impact of weather to hot/cold survival attributes
  • linux: built Sandy Engine against older libraries to support not so recent distributions
