When will you add mounts :(
Oh jeebus, I can image some serious quarter-rushing for that, and some gigantic complexes full of beds, especially if servers get a little larger for WAR mode. Also, question, earlier it was mentioned that food will replace tickets to be required to spawn, is this still the case with the beds?
Also, the boats looks fantastic. Really, I'm so happy to see multiple kinds and possible a larger ship. If the larger ship gets in, it would be a damn shame to see people NOT make ship-battle maps and servers with only water.
Really, the only way to make it better would be to add giant airships and rideable dinosaurs. Very rarely does a game get awesome enough for me to say that.
Yes, giant airships and ridable dinosaurs would be quite epic honestly. I would be riding dinosaurs all day long, and flying on massive airships like a boss. Or riding on a dinosaur thats riding an airship. :B
@ReactorCore: no worries; herbal medicine isn't a bad idea.
@Cleggy: You make a demolition ship by putting kegs on a standard boat, no need for a special one ;)
@Ala-Gold: yes, they cause injury, they're intended to keep pesky knights out.
@Gofio: As I said (but maybe not 100% clearly) - most room types have some default functionality built in, like the nursery built into every agriculture room - it needs to be upgraded to have a larder.
The second boat has a sail because it's speedy. The other ones are powered by rowing alone.
@Hella: Of course, I've made emblems for 4/8 possible teams, I'm wondering if we need more or not. They are currently Blue Eagle, Red Bear, Green Stag, Purple Bison. Can't have those filthy reds dressing under a figurehead of our noble guardian. Blue master race.
@SirPixelot: We'd love to fit airships in, but we're finding ourselves increasingly strapped for time at the moment, so it might have to wait until after release.
@8x: Trust me, the boats look best like this in-game. It is a very straight side-on view, but when something rotates like these boats and the siege engines do, it needs to be drawn side-on so that it doesn't appear to "twist" when rotated.
Yes, structures for hiding behind are planned, especially for pesky archers to cower in.
@Rocker2: It is very likely, jrgp runs those though, so I can't guarantee it'll happen quickly.
@GloriousToast: Banned from making puns for 5 days, effective immediately, on pain of complaint from everyone ;)
@"please to pirate hats" - yeah yeah.
@Rocker2: Mounts will come when we get time for them, which is not this time around. You get boats and pilotable siege weapons instead. I'm not sure how you feel ripped off when you get a catapult that can do wheelies.
@DrZaloski: that's the plan, we want to encourage actual _castle_ building. Food is still required to spawn in, quarters are required for a forward, prompt spawn. The food requirement means the minecrafters at your base are actually doing you good, assuming they dont farm the food and then put it in the sea or wear it on their heads (I've seen stupider). As I said, airships might happen later (I've got a few sprites lying around) but will probably miss this release. No dinosaurs ;)
I don't feel ripped off, I am actually really excited for this update!
Thanks for the extremely difficult work the kag team are doing, I have watched someone doing code, and I don't understand how you can do it for 5 minutes :3
is it just me or am I the only one who get lag spikes almost every time i' am just about to die
Is it wrong I fapped to this? o.o
I'm not sure. I think it might be paddles. Equivalent to that of an old river steam boat?
I am happy now. :D
If you do manage to fit that in on a next possible update... maybe you should also add in more minerals like copper, iron, silver, coal. For the airships, siege weapons, arrows, so on and so forth. Im not trying to pull minecraft into this... but It won't hurt.
Hopefully we get something where we can use builders to BUILD onto boats. Sort of like a puzzle, but able to keep increasing the height and length and depth of a boat.
Physics or gravity wouldn't allow that bro. xD
But still.. would be cool.
Looks awesome. I can't wait to get freaky on those new boats, especially the one with the mounted crossbow.
And the landing spikes on the covered launch are pretty damn sweet. The artwork on these things are amazing.
You know what would be awesome...
Ship upgrades / Repair Ships
What is needed is a Ship Yard. Which is separate to the carpentry shop.
You can make ships there and such.
There's a separate ship from the rest which is a builders ship which is just a boat for just builders so they can fix up ships if needed and upgrades if you got the wood and stone.
So your most basic ship is the log raft. Then you can upgrade to the Dinghy then the rest of the ships. :P
I think thats a good idea. c:
Well, dinosaurs are but a distance dream, but are secondary to airships. Great to see there is actually a chance of them getting in :D
Airships are a thing of the future. :D
If green has a stag, purple should have a honey badger.
I must say this is one of the more awesome development updates I have seen. Awesome enough to make me come back and reply on the forum. The only thing more awesome would be indeed, dinosaurs. With top hats. And monocles.
I got a questions about boats firstly will ally boats be able to go through each other or there will be boat bridges and lots of boat traffic secondly, how will you get on boats? as in will you just Jump on the boats or will you press E and there's a seat slot so you won't go overboard thirdly will it possible to get on enemy boats and hi-jack the boat?
and lastly how will you move boats, will you have some sort of vehicle with wheels to carry it or will player just carry it and once it's placed it will be unpickable because if it still pickable..... *spash* griefers will be killers...
You could just ram through your enemies?
hmmm.. maybe every team should be based on the developers and administrators?
a crown, an eagle, a flying brick, etc?
would be pretty awesome.

If dinosaurs are officially added, Ill suicide.
