Dev Notes[]

V0.36 – New cave, Unblocked sinkhole, Side platform building, Improved options menu, New Timmy drawings, Rock thrower converted to multi-item thrower, bug fixing and lots more. Posted on 5 April, 2016 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

This patch unblocks the hole at bottom of sinkhole, allowing access into a new cave below. We’ve also removed all the blocking collision from sinkhole, so you’re now free to jump down to your death, or alternatively try building a staircase downwards, or platforms using the new side platform building which can attach to cliffs without needing a foundation built.

The rock thrower has been converted to the multi-thrower and can now throw many more items, including explosives and molotovs!

Timmy drawings found in caves can now be collected and will be stored in inventory. After equipping them you can place them on built walls as decorations.

We’ve also added a new multiplayer standup revive animation, smoothed out some jerky mp animations, added some new audio, fixed a ton of bugs and lots more, for the full list view:

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub
