Trees offering protection against strong winds
Voted by community
As you can see on the following gif, the shelter on the beach is destroyed by the storm whereas the one close to the trees is protected from the wind.
To achieve a consistent behaviour, I’ve done some reading on the subject of windbreak. Maybe I’ll detail the algorithm later.
To improve first player experience with procedural generation, we added a beginner mode which activates the tutorial objectives and guarantees a map with enough resources (instead of generating a random seed, the game takes it in a predefined list).
Quarry giving ore
Quarries now exist in 3 different sizes and give ore when digging tiles with ore veins. There are now plenty of ore veins in the ground. Finally, the mine building has been removed.
- Trees have an intermediate form, smaller than the fully grown tree, but giving the same materials (in a smaller amount, obviously)
- Crafting a string can be done with no survival skill (level 1 required before)
- Floating platforms and fix fishing rods are now damaged by storms
