- the red korona is now at 2500HP
- bullets/arrows can be made, 4 per block of iron or copper
- bullets/arrows can be equipped in its own little ui block now

We're going to have a0.41 out on Monday, we delayed it for a couple of days since it's the weekend and we wanted to add the concept of bullets to balance the guns a bit. So...

- forest and terrain plants has a new lod system, looks a ton better now.
- new grass type in grasslands
- most grassland flora in (except for 2 types)
- bug fixes for a lot of things
- the red korona is now at 2500HP
- bullets/arrows can be made, 4 per block of iron or copper
- bullets/arrows can be equipped in its own little ui block now
- bullets/arrows shows up right above the quickbar, no bullets and guns are useless
- tweaked player animation for holding guns while moving and holding bows

Will you be adding in Sound options in this build? :D

We're trying to fix a really minor bug right now where there seems to be something invisible blocking out parts of the ui sometimes, it's really hard to reproduce so we're still looking at it. Everything else is close to fixed. I've decided to just bite the bullet and redo the rig of the main characters, this will have ramifications. First, there will be a lot of memory freed, we'll be able to add ik physics and ragdoll. The bad part is until we get morph targets online, there will no longer be facial/body modification. This will probably stand until a0.8.

Some new screens, new tree lod system and new grass, the ring plants are back as well:

Watching those changes make me almost sh*ts rainbow!

But one important thing, where is the download link for 0.41a? Can't find it anywhere.

Well, I've uploaded it to indiedb, now just wait 'til their link's up. No torrent or dropbox this time, already went over the bandwidth limit with my isp and dropbox public linking.  :(
