Transponder Updates (on Potato)

  • It is now possible to insta-rebuild destroyed blocks from a transponder match.  Via /restorelist, you can get a list of the five most recent matches and how many blocks were destroyed in each.  With /restorelimbo, you can restore destroyed blocks from a given match.  Currently the cost for this is 1 plat per instant rebuild. (Shown in the video at 4:56)
  • Super fancy UI for when starting & finishing match (check it out in the video at 4:26)
  • Fixed bug where mobs would attack other attackers
  • Match observers should not be targeted or be able to cause damage to mobs
  • Block HP now scales to its relative cost for most gold blocks & doors
  • Block & Player HP heals to full HP at the beginning of a match
  • Disallow changes to townpvp during a transponder battle

Font Changes in Potato Testing

Some small changes to how fonts are handled:

  • Non-english language: will render using entirely system TTF fonts (looks nicer & more consistent than mixing fonts within the same sentence)
  • Custom texture pack authors can now dump in chatFont.ttf, questHeaderFont.ttf, and questFont.ttf files into HTMudWeb.zip to change up the in-game fonts

These changes are only currently being tested on Potato live.

Here's some random fonts for texture pack testing:

Seperate output window for long commands

Commands with long results now output to their own windows.  This works for: /rewardblocks, /publicpad list, /towns, and /credits.

Speaking of /credits, if you purchased a reward tier that includes a game credit, it's now been added.  Thanks!

Delivering Pocket Universes

If you bought the Second Pocket Universe / Town Expansion tier during Octoberbit and filled out the survey, those have now been delivered / expanded.  If you didn't fill out the survey yet, please do.

Town Expansions

Have been expanded, enjoy!

Second Pocket Universes

You can get a list of your pocket universes with /listpockets, it will show a map id for each pocket you own.

You can then teleport to each pocket with /telepocket <map id>, ie: /telepocket 123456

In your inventory, you will find a brand new Townstone.  Place that in your pocket where you like, then return to the survey.  On the main page, there is a new reward option: "Second PU - I received it and placed TS, now ready for expand."  Submit that to notify me that you are ready for the town expansion to 5x5.

shirt preview

I ordered extras t-shirts for a trade show late last year and didn't end up needing them.  They've been hanging out in my file cabinet ever since.

I have a Large and an Extra Large available for the next couple days if anyone wants them.
