Signs now work! You can carve a blank sign post using a knife and read it by clicking the written sign. The message will pop up in your chatbox.
…and even more polish
Emotes! They’re tied to F1-F12. We carefully designed each emote to be extremely accessible so that people can communicate their intentions immediately. This breaks language barriers and creates a culture of communication beyond text!

I added some more runes this week
The concept is pretty cool. You simply have to slide the rune into a rune slot while crafting…
…and your craft will be upgraded (or downgraded) based on the chances specified in each rune. Risk vs reward is the key.
I’m finally starting to get back into the groove of things after I moved into college 2 weeks ago. Today I finally ported the networking engine over to Enet and added some key functionality to trees and buckets. Expect lots more soon.
Micropather Linux Port
While porting the server, it came to my attention that “Micropather”, a library used for pathfinding, is not ported to Linux because of a few Microsoft-specific headers it uses. We decided to upload the ported files to help someone else down the line.
Here are the ported versions:
Also note that you can’t cast an int to (void*) in GCC, which the tutorial recommends. You’ll need to use the stdlib integer cast.
We just ported the server and map generator to Ubuntu and we will work on getting the client ported soon enough. This is more of a learning experience for me and Cameron so we can streamline our build process in the future! Fear not Mac users, your day will come too.
