Greetings Founders and Vanguardians!

Today's Devblog previews a bunch of features and improvements coming to CardLife in our mid-November update including new Digging options and more tools for the Connect The Dots editor.

New Connect the Dot functionality
We have seen some incredible designs made using our Connect the Dots system (see below for some awesome community structures and creations!). But we want to improve the usability of this system to give players more creative power.

The most requested addition was the ability to redo and undo. Previously if you made a mistake while cutting out a shape, you would need to start again from scratch. Our incoming change aims to address that concern!

First, you are no longer confined to make your weapon follow the outline. We have given you much more control to shape the object however you want.


Next! If you’re not happy with your shape, you can simply undo and redo very easily with just a click of the button!


Even once you have made your initial shape, the redo buttons will still be activated and you can make further adjustments


The undo and Redo also works when cutting out shapes within your creation!


We have further plans to improve the functionality of this system. This is just the start!

New Mining system
We are currently refining the mining system in CardLife to make it much more predictable. We’ve had a few players report that when digging they would like to have much greater control over the shape of their caverns. These new changes will make it easier to not only dig, but also place down stone and dirt too!

If you equip a shovel or a pick axe and face a digable surface you will see a circular outline. This outline shows exactly where you will dig and can be resized and the depth can be adjusted by right clicking


This should give you greater flexibility to create amazing cavern systems with improved precision.


This system also affects placing down dirt or stone too! We’re looking forward to seeing players construct some truly remarkable statues using this new system!


We may have some more news to share regarding the changes to mining in the coming weeks. But let us know what you think of these changes!

Community creations
Have you made something amazing in CardLife? An epic structure, a cool character or a marvelous mod. You should definitely tell us about them! Here are a few screenshots that were shared over the last week:

A Spicy Pumpkin created the Combat iron Crossbow:



JLi ""\\.@.//"" has been working on an amazing castle archway and stair combo.



And JLi ""\\.@.//""’s brother has been working on another impressive structure:



Captain_Bunneee has been using the creative mode to construct an odd pyramid building!



Thank you for sending over your feedback!We sent out a call to action earlier this week which asked you to send in your top ten bugs. We had quite a few of you getting in touch via Discord, Steam and via our official forums. This list has been sent over to the production team who is now looking over the most severe issues and making plans to address them. Remember to keep providing us bug reports and give us clear descriptions and reproduction steps so that we can fix them much faster!

That’s the end of this week's dev blog. We have some really exciting news to share over the next couple of weeks so make sure to stay tuned!

All the best,
Chris
