[Update] 27th of September – Half blocks, low gravity effect, more!

Hi guys,

This update offers an array of new items and bug fixes, with a completely new type of blocks!
Check it out!

 

Mail system

 

Send messages to your friends! If you need to reach a friend but he’s not online, send them an ingame mail. Note: you can only send mail to your friends, so make a few more!

Blocks

 

Low gravity effect
While low gravity worlds already existed, their use was limited: it was enabled permanently and the world size was limited. So we now introduce the low gravity effect! Just like other effects, this can be enabled/disabled by touching the activation/deactivation block. Jump and move as if you were on the moon!
Low gravity worlds have been removed from the shop, but existing ones will stay.

Stone pack
A new pack with 4 decorative stone blocks, with backgrounds for building great masonry. If you already had the original stone pack, you do not have to buy it again, but you get it for free!

• Domestic pack
Note! This will be available to beta members only for one week.
Introducing the domestic pack; an assortment of homely textures, perfect for interior design! Includes tile, carpet, wallpaper, half blocks and more!

Half blocks are a completely new type of block. They take up only half the space of a full block, and they can be rotated into 4 different directions.

  1. Great update, the tutorial is too long though.

    Just make it go over some (max 20) key points of the game and for the rest like specific settings, add a question mark button nearby so that their description can be viewed whenever the user actually asks for it.
