Post news Report RSS Medieval Engineers - Update 02.006 - First form of Survival mode, settings panel, tearable rope

Update 02.006 has been released. In this week’s update, we are introducing the first form of the Survival mode.

Posted by on

In this week’s update, we are introducing the first form of the Survival mode. The initial feature of the survival mode is character’s death. Your character can now die by falling down from heights, by something hitting him hard or by something falling on him. The character can also die when the barbarians bit him.

Additionally, we have added a new settings panel which is available in Creative mode; it can be activated by pressing 'K' and you can switch night mode or remove block fractures.

Moreover, we have added a bunch of new blocks. The most interesting one is 'rope hook' which will automatically detach a rope on certain angles that can be configured by the player. Another interesting item is the tearable rope; this is a type of rope that gets broken when something comes in touch with it (barbarian leg, block, tree, etc.). It is ideal for building more sophisticated traps. There are also a few new slope blocks and battlements.

Lastly, ropes can now be found in 'Character Tools' - can be attached by pressing the primary action (left mouse) on highlight. The default rope is still available by pressing 'T' on highlight in Creative mode.
