Day/night cycle! Snow area! New video!

Published on April 26, 2016

Whats up guys!

This month was all about expanding the world towards a decent alpha build size. It took some time but we are almost there because alpha world is now for 80% done! With expanding came new ideas and so we created a snow biome. Of course it's not fully finished yet but it's a good start and we hope you like it :)

Another big one would be the day/night cycle we implemented last week. The cycle simulates a full 24-hour timespan which takes 20 minutes to complete. We are really excited about this one because it gives a whole lot more ambience to the game world with different colors and shadows all the time.

We thought it would be cool to add a craftable torch to the game so it's easier to walk and explore at nighttime. Oh and don't worry, there won't be any zombies spawning at night :P

Check out the video and share your thoughts :D

I Have an idea... Make it so that there The world has an equator and poles so the further you go the colder it gets till you reach an ice fortess in the centre which can be clamined you can do this with other envromints too
