Cubelands has moved from a private beta to a public beta. We removed the beta key requirement so everyone is welcome to play the game. IndieDB is the first site we're announcing the public beta at! Be among the first new users :)!
There has been quite some news lately, but I didn't want to spam IndieDB with bugfixes and other small improvements. So here is a summary of the most important changes since the last IndieDB newspost.
Fully customizable worlds (multiplayered)
You can change the terrain textures very easily, this is streamed from servers to clients. This enables themed worlds. The possibilities are endless; Recreate a factory, the desert, Alaska, Heaven, Egypt, Mars etc... As you can expect from Cubelands, customizing the textures is very easy, there's no need to make your own texture atlas etc. See the tutorial forum for details.
I look forward to see the first customizations!
Shadows + Fully customizable sun cycle
You can change the suns rotation, whether it rotates at all, the Ambient light color and more.
There have been various other improvements:
- Easy importing/exporting
- A game patcher
- New chat commands
- Great performance improvements
- New community features on the website
- An online character viewer
- Never play alone! New quickplay function to easily connect to a random server.
- Many small bugfixes/improvements
