Less bugs.

Time to get back to work on EE as well as the blog! It would seem that this blog has been neglected for the past two months due to lack of updates. Sorry!

Bug fix rollcall:

  • Fixed bug where larger rooms would not load.
  • Fixed bug where you would be able to jump on a row of dots or arrows.
  • Fixed bug where guests would not be sent directly into a room when linked.
  • Fixed bug where your momentum would be reset when teleporting at high speeds.
  • Fixed bug where you could make the game break by moving too fast with the help of portals.
  • Optimized server performance.
More shop goodies are also underway, keep checking back for more news.
Hope you had a great summer!

Tweaks

We just pushed a slightly updated version of the game. Here is the change-log

– BUG: Fixed the secret bricks (removed shadow, now invisible on minimap, backgrounds are now visible)
– BUG: A known secret is now reset once you place another brick on that tile.
– BUG: Portal no longer breaks when setting background behind them
– BUG: Revealed Secret bricks no longer hides when putting a background behind them
– BUG: You can now again easily move into a single brick wide hole above you.

– FEATURE: Secret bricks are now shown as other users see them, until you discover them by running into them. When in god mode, all secret bricks are revealed.

– TWEAK: The new basic physcis has been tweaked to be more alike the old.
– TWEAK: The gravity dot is now slightly smaller visually.

– TWEAK: The game now has a new home screen

Injecting new life in to Everybody Edits!

A brand new update was released today! The biggest and most anticipated feature included is…

The background layer.

Fancy new look, eh?

This is sure to make your level look far more vivid and colorful than ever before, so go wild! Included in this is the Basic and standard Brick packs which is free for all members!

To make it even more fun we added a few new packages to the shop. Checkers are beta only for now!

Only 1$ each!

Physics 3.0

As part of this release, the basic game physics have been rewritten yet again. The primary goal was to make it faster as it up until this point has been the most resource intensive part of the game.  The secondary goal where to ensure that we could add cool new features such as ice and sticky surfaces in the future.

A few new additions where also added to the layer.

  • The smily will now auto align to the game grid if close to the grid and standing still, making it easy to jump up trough 1 block holes. Something that was almost impossible to do before.
  • The smiley will no longer overlap the map by one pixel.
The only downside to the new physics engine is, that even though we have done everything in our power to make the game feel the same, some puzzles will break as they rely on edge cases in the physics engine.

Minor Changes

This is of course not the only treat we have for you this day. A list of new features and fixes are:

  • Enormous amounts of bug fixes
  • New minimap renderer (Sand block from the summer pack now renders an orange color in the minimap)
  • Most decorations now render on top of the smiley instead of behind

    Who's hiding there?

  • The foreground layer now has a drop shadow!

    Enjoy the shade!

  • A bunch of polished smilies! (Angel, Big Spender, Bully, Commande, Ninja, Terminator, Nurse)
  • Some basic bricks have been polished.
  • Arrows & Coins now have a black outline.
Here’s to hoping you will all stick around in Everybody Edits for the rest of the summer. Cheers!

It sure is hot here… – Summer pack 2011 released!

Greetings, fellow EE players! I hope you’re enjoying the summer as much as we do, and to celebrate everyone’s favorite season of the year, we’ve released the Summer Package 2011!

Another brand new thing we’ve added for the newcomers is a tutorial level that you automatically start out in as a guest that teaches you the basics of movement and editing. Even if you’re a EE veteran, it’s worth checking out!

The third feature added to the game is a very hotly requested on by the userbase called the “Classic tab” that can be found in the Energy shop. This tab will contain previously time-limited items that can be purchased for a certain amount of gems. If you missed out on these great items, don’t hesitate to get them!
