A whole bunch of new household goods!

householdGoods

I've just added a bunch of new household goods -- almost everything we made in the art livestream a couple days ago.  The stove pictured above is NOT yet publicly available, as I have some special plans for that ;)

I changed the way items are placed too -- most items smaller than a half block will now attempt to horizontally & vertically center themselves within the tile.  Also, when placing signs, they no longer snap away from you when you place them.

IRC SSL Certs & Web Path Updated

The ssl certs for the irc server were a bit out of date...

*   Valid since Jan  2 23:14:56 2005 GMT to Jan  2 23:14:56 2006 GMT

Okay, maybe a lot out of date :P.  Anyhow, they're valid again now for both the irc server itself, as well as web access.  Note if you had the irc web interface bookmarked, it's got a different path now.

Hammer

The new Hammer weapon is now playable on Potato (and soon Primary if Potato remains stable during testing).

The Hammer is a strong weapon -- it causes 10 damage in an area of effect around you.  However, you have to stand still for 3/4ths of a second before the weapon causes damage -- just enough time to escape if your opponent is quick.

Other changes currently being tested on Potato:

  • If you trade your homestone to another player, you can buy a new one
  • Dialogue window properly uses the keybinding setting instead of always using 'E'
  • Client/server time synchronization system (current being used in the Hammer)

Buy-Ammo System

A popular request has been ammo purchasable separately from weapons.  I am now testing this change on Potato, and if it's stable, expect to see it on Primary tomorrow.

  • Ammo can be bought separately
  • Weapons no longer self-delete on reaching zero ammo
  • Prevent purchasing another weapon when that weapon already exists in the inventory (this simplifies weapon management, since each weapon item can have its own unique ammo count, and it'd be easy to get mixed up)
  • Weapon's ammo level now properly saves/loads
  • x10 buttons removed for weapon folder
  • Pixel Pistol now does 3 damage - combined with low ammo cost, hopefully this makes it more appealing for use
