Could you do a single topic for all new stuff, and then reorganize after the category is added? Maybe even right here?

I have to go outside today, and i don’t want to. Unfortunately someone who lives close by needs my assistance with cleaning some kitty litter. Kitty cats before games. My tin hat has me thinking that i’m tasked with this on purpose, to get me to leave. Aah

That image is fan art from early days. It was large enough for wallpaper.

Seeing all Sean’s tweets makes me hungry to play. I may have to take vacation time! :smiley:

Great interview. So many of us have been yearning for a variety update for so long, and anxious at how the changes in Next looked like that was going in the opposite direction. I think finally hearing Sean’s acknowledgement of that, and how this update starts righting that ship was a very important thing.

I figured this would eventually need to happen, though I admit I’m a little sad about it. I grew really fond of the giant striders that roamed my home base planet. Oh well, still overjoyed to have lots of new stuff to explore!

Yeah, we were just talking about that here yesterday! After base-building became such a focus, I was sure HG was never going to do a full reset. It would’ve likely caused a lot of negativity that they never want to experience again. I figured our only chance of getting something like a reset was a hybrid approach that preserved the old too. I’m so happy they’ve taken the game in that direction.

Yeah, it looks like they wrote a new bunch of terrain algorithms and left the old ones intact. Very nice of them, I just hope the difference between them won’t be too jarring.

Also, I wonder how they fit the new terrain, which can apparently have a much larger scale, into memory. Quite possible it’s just the “base terrain” that is scaled up, with the thickness of the voxel layer remaining unchanged, though that could have some weird effects in deep caves… Can’t play to find out unfortunately, twiddling my broken thumb and watching streams…

Excellent, finally back home and already installed. Just hope it still runs and nothing goes wrong and frame rate stays the same.

It’s very quiet in here, I wonder why? Lol.

Just wow. I can see for miles, more beautiful than ever. Smoother running too. Just…wow.

Smiles … chuckles … giggle fit.

Yep – I’m taking the afternoon as vacation time.

Awesomesauce! Hello Games does it once again.

I really did not foresee opening up portal exploration again:
" Travellers [sic :slight_smile: ] may now slip through portals and explore their destination freely , with no portal interference. An infinite universe has become more accessible."
