This is the installer version of Manic Digger. Recommended for normal users. Windows only installer.
The game can be downloaded here > Sourceforge.net and to play on multi-player servers the same version number should be used (latest available version)
The game and its creation is completely community driven and an active and welcoming forum can be found here > Manicdigger.sourceforge.net
Anyone is welcome to download and play, and anyone with sufficient knowledge and capability is welcome to offer input on how to go about improving the game. The source code is freely available to those that can dabble in such things, and I'm sure the creator of Manic Digger would welcome pro-active input.
It's been a long time since the last life sign on here, so I won't make you wait any longer by writing a huge essay.
Today we proudly present version 2015-02-17.
A lot has changed since the last version so here's a quick overview of the biggest changes.
As of popular request we have added some more blocks to the game.
This includes new types of wood as well as some completely new blocks like Sandstone or Red Sand.
For now these new blocks are only available in creative mode.
In one of the next releases the world generator will also get an update so the new blocks can be found naturally.
We introduced a new, much more flexible system for players and other entities.
This system enables the use of signs (which we had to disable in this version due to stability issues) as well as easy extension of all existing mobs.
This is a big step closer to wildlife and NPCs in the game.
Yes, that's right.
Please note that this might still have some issues that we didn't find. If you come across some nasty bugs, help us squash them by reporting them on GitHub.
You can find that new game client here: Manicdigger.github.io
