Planet Explorers Alpha 0.5 Released!
« on: February 11, 2013, 04:42:23 AM »

Torrent: http://www.pathea.net/images/web/PlanetExplorersAv0.5.torrent
Direct Download: http://www.gamefront.com/files/files/22939456/PlanetExplorersAv0.5.rar

What's new in this build:
- switched over to Unity's mecanim animation system, saving the game over 300MB in memory
- ability to fight while on the move
- added rivers- added new missions
- added new npcs
- added new enemies (sentient aliens!)
- added new resources- ability to make multi gun muzzles
- ability to make driven vehicles- ability to put weapons on driven vehicles
- ability to trade creations (they're by the game saves (CreateData/peiso) in the Document folder, just take them out and give them away)
- laser and missile turrets
- able to see structures that are built up to 1km off
- environmental fog
- better looking terrain with perlin noise
- optimized terrain generation so that you'll not be able to outrace it anymore
- options is now working

What we took out for now:
- caves, we will have a new and better system ready by a0.6, but we didn't have time to implement it this time
- face morphing, we'll have a new version of this in the future that's more efficient, for now, nochanging the body shape or face shape, you'll still be able to change skin and eye color as wellas face types

It gets bigger every version, just imagine how big it will be for the final version :P

So when is the kickstarter or are you going to wait til .51 or .6?

We might do a 0.51, since something really cool just missed the cutoff. Kickstarter will be within 2 weeks and Greenlight will be within a week.  ;D

@Zifei: Good news! Is there however any chance of a zip file of some kind? Apologies for asking – I just don't have any experience of, nor do I particularly want to get involved in if I can avoid it, using torrent files and installing torrent clients.
