Oh, Foursaken Media, will you ever release something that *isn't* great?
What's NewThanks again to all of you for making Block Fortress such a success! We've still got a bunch more things planned for this game. For now, enjoy these extra features and bug fixes, and we'll continue to work on adding the big stuff you've been asking for... including co-op multiplayer!
• added a system to upload, share, and rate bases in sandbox mode
• added a new motion sensor block that can detect shadows
• added a flat plains terrain location
• you can now build terrain blocks in sandbox mode
• added a day and night toggle in sandbox mode
• fixed a crash that would happen every time a land mine or depth charge exploded
• you can now delete granite blocks in sandbox mode (allowing you to dig caves)
• major memory optimizations, allowing for bigger maps on lower RAM devices, and bigger maps in sandbox mode on all devices
• fixed an exploit that could make shadows wander around indefinitely without attacking
• added a link in the “Guide” section to the official IGN wiki - check it out, add your tips and strategies, and promote your uploaded fortresses!
• enemies now drop multiple coins based on the size of their reward (every coin is equal to up to 5 gold, so an enemy that rewards 20 gold will drop 4 coins)
• increased the time enemy coins persist before they disappear
• greatly increased the block and enemy selection distance when in FPS mode
• fixed a bug that would cause stats to be adjusted incorrectly when some mods were removed
• fixed some inaccurate mod descriptions
• removed salvage mod from nuke blocks (which caused an exploit)
• changed the R.O.F. mod on heavy plasma to a reload mod
• you can now hold down the up and down arrows to continuously fly up and down
• swapped the inverse look options (so they control the correct camera rotations now)
• tweaked the icon
• other bug fixes
Stay tuned for more, and if you've been enjoying the game, tell your friends!
