Hello! Today, I am actually bringing a half finished themed update.... You see, I was planning on making an update with a builtin world -- This world would have a planet in it, being observed by a space station, as it get blown up exactly when it turns the 21/12/2012... However, it turned 21/12/2012 *today*! aaaandd, like a certain OTHER apocalypse I know... it looks like that just isn't going to happen :(
 
 
However... I did put alot of work into a *secondary* feature of the world. You see, the planet is actually spherical, and the space station has artificial gravity : D
 
 
Unfortunately, that's about as far as it goes -- I did not end up haivng enough time to get *anything* up to snuff... None of the vehicles have gravity independant logic yet, the minimap is not gravity independant, the forcefields cause sharp changes in gravity (and therefore camera angle), and the planet is the only object that got textured... I didn't even get a chance to smooth the normals on that darned thing :( There are probably nerly a hundred thigns wrong with this update that, given more time, I would have loved to have fixed. However, unfortunately, time was not on my side!
 
 
So, think of this as a super duper buggy preliminary test phase of the kinds of custom gravity that you can expect in the future -- Not the hugest update on the planet, I know, but it was only ever meant to be a themed release anyhow! Thankyou to Abister and Eric for creating the code that the gravity system was originally based on! :) 
 
 
 
ALSO... we kind of skipped an update, sorry about that... Here are the download links:

  • Fix terrain stuck (Flynn)
  • Make negative max speeds indicate no block (Flynn)
Known Bugs:
  • Collision modes to do not default to correct mode
  • Non-host players can no longer view server settings -- This is on purpose and only temporary.

  • Hypersound has very small range of speed (Please take credit, your name was not written down)

Changes:
  • Slightly adjusted max speed to go to -2 instead of -20 mph
New Features:
  • Shaders working properly
  • New collision detection modes:
    • Full -- What 2.22 uses, never deactivates, may cause you to become stuck
    • Anti-Stuck -- The same, but deactivates when you are detected to be stuck due to collision detection
    • Activated -- Same as Full, but only when you are likely to move through things
    • Off -- Smart Collisions are never activated
  • Added "Update I/O box:" -- Sometimes the IO box takes forever to update. I haven't had a chance to look into the behavior, but it is now a TODO. In the mean time, this forces the box to update :)
Contributers:
  • Eric Lujan (Falloff Altitude)
  • ACE/Starmute (Laser Special Effects) 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Accessing the Apocalypse World:
I will personally be hosting a server in the apocalypse world, but if you want to access it yourself, just use "2012" as the world url :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
P.S just to keep you updated on the licensing for Open Source, I am still looking into it, I have some ideas but I need to look deeper
