for this experimental build we were mainly focusing on adding the In-game Bug Reporting system. It is now possible to catch the Sea gulls with Bird Trap and transport them in Bird Cage. There are collectible Wall Candle holders and a big amount of bugs were fixed too.
To switch between stable and experimental game builds make sure game properties in your Steam client are set to either "Experimental" or "None" (which is the stable branch).
Our community always has been a big help for us in finding and reporting bugs. To make the process much more simpler we decided to add an in-game Bug report system. The entire process is as simple as to open the bug report screen from the menu, fill in an optional E-mail (for contact if there would be some more detail needed), a mandatory Description field and press the Send button. The system automatically collects and compresses all the needed info and uploads to our bug report server.
There is a new Collectible Candle Holder which is possible to Attach to a wall. It is small addition which makes the living more nice and comfortable. The here introduced new wall attach/detach mechanic will be added for Doors&Windows too because it eliminates all the collisions/unpleasant situations with attaching/detaching the Doors&Windows to walls (mainly on rafts).
The ground textures were improved and the vegetation models were optimized. In some reference scenes the triangle count dropped to about 25% of the original amount. This opens up the door to a sooner introduction of bigger islands.
