Still Alive! 2006-07-17 12:00:00

I'm alive and working hard on Blockland. I realize that I don't give updates very often. Sorry about that, I'm not much of a blogger.

Things have been going fairly well in the land of blocks. I have been beta testing with a few people from the community and fixing bugs. We've generally been having a good time and building like mad:

Blockland Beta City 1 Blockland Beta City 2

There's also a screenshot thread on the forum here. Note: Copyrighted Lego material has been removed for legal reasons. I actually prefer the new style because it works better as a real-time scene.

My goal is to fix all of the problems that existed in v0002.
  • Complete avatar customization
  • Faster, more reliable master server.
  • Universal saving and loading of builds.
  • Faster brick rendering.
  • Faster loading.
  • Global name registration
  • Superior banning system
  • Jerk management (stop the smashers)
  • A system for adding and activating new game types
The items in green are done, the items in red are not. There are host of other improvements and fixes not listed here, but these are the big things. I don't know how long this will take to finish- the release date remains ""when it's done"".

Some of you may remember the old optimization picture.
Well here's a new one for ya.
