    Hey Folks,

    A smaller build today, mostly technical stuff.

    The main game-side change is the addition of sponges to TDM. This has been requested by players as a counter to water. Sponges cost 20 coins by default in TDM.

    The TDM "economy" (if it can be called that) has also been slightly reworked. The minimum coins on spawn has been dropped to 20 - meaning you can't afford most items without some kills. There has also been a maximum imposed on coins, which is currently set to 200. This is to stop curb-stomping players from accruing hundreds of coins and spamming items just before they leave, leading to a non-game for other participants. The maximum is applied on respawn (not constantly) - so if you save extra during a game, you can still use them to finish things off.

    For context, someone with 200 coins can still afford 2 kegs, or 4 mines, or 8 water arrows, or 4 bomb arrows, or 10 bombs; more than enough for any reasonable in-game usage.

    Sponges are now in stock in TDM! Prices have changed as well, see in store for details!

    The latest engine changes have also been pulled in, which means that the snap-pixels bug should finally be history, modded servers on windows now correctly download mods when specified from the API, TCPR can now handle lines up to 16kb (important for any i/o heavy tcpr based mods).

    Mac users may also have a proper icon now, please let us know if that actually worked or not. Should be a little Henry head on an orange background.

    These changes are, at always, up for discussion. Let us know what you think on the forums!

    Have Fun!
    Max

    Will have to wait on that I'm afraid, fell off the "important" list.

    I think the wood cost on sponges is fine, it'd be up to a builder to supply their team with sponges if needed / one would have to go out of their way to get them, although I'm not totally opposed to making them cost coins for the sake of making it easier

    the TDM changes sound great

    what about refillable buckets?

    Small correction - mods weren't downloaded no matter the OS (linux or windows). And that was fixed together by me and @Geti.

    Right you are! Sorry, wrote the post in a bit of a hurry.

    Also; I'll be away for the next 3 weeks on a personal vacation. See you guys on the other side of that, might drop in from time to time (Pretty sure they have the internet in the UK) but won't be working. Have fun in the meantime!

    Here in the barren wastelands of Scotireland, one can only access the internet by hooking up a improvised modem consisting of flint, a four-leaved clover and half a ZX Spectrum shoved inside an old Irn-Bru can.

    Glitched archers have returned apparently, according to a steam posting.
