We will be releasing an a0.81 next week to fix any bugs found in this build. For the duration from a0.8 to a0.9, we’ll be trying to add these:

Building LOD
More story missions

More terrain generation types in adventure mode
Map size definition for adventure mode
Continent generation for adventure map
Sky islands for adventure mode
More animal behavior
The feces face smasher gun

Our aim for a0.9 is:

Story editor
Terrain editor
World editor
AI pathfinding overhaul?

Do not expect a0.9 until probably October, the whole editors thing will take a while. Also, the spam filter for WordPress is terribad, so we have to wade through 40,000 and counting spam posts to get to the real posts. So if you’re trying to post on here and not being able to, we’re trying to solve the problem.
