  • Very good! I'm happy you made it before the holiday season started :smiley:
  • Converting an old (pre 0.8.x) means:
    - loosing all Bricktrons, just one will be left
    - all unfinsihed blueprints are lost
    - all stockpiles are empty
    - all tasks are lost
    so far so good.
    - all lights are gone - Noooooooooooooo!

    But the "Manor House" save will run with 60+ frames instead of lousy 7 before!

    So far I'm fine - but loosing all the lights.... that's hard.
    Any chance to bring them back?

    Great Job Guys! I like the 0.8!
    Enjoy your holidays!
  • Cool!

    Hey Teawan,

    That shouldn't happen! You should only lose the tasks/blueprints. Can you send us the save file?

    I had 2 bricktrons left. but i thought exactly the same about the lights playing in dark isnt that easy especially because allmost all task were gone and the resources too. but hey at least yellow crystals now glow in stockpiles

  • Every update the game be better and i love this :D . But always when i will play the game (no sandbox), it gets boring, because i have few Bricktrons to construct big castles and the game is very slow. Anyone is having this problem? :(
  • Have there been any changes to Lua?
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Hey diomidov,

    Check out /lua/gameplayTest.lua :)

    Thank you
  • That looks interesting.

    It also looks like the UI is a lot more moddable now? :grin:
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Oh yes, sorry. I'm not super super devvy so I forgot, but absolutely, the entire scoreboard has been Luaified. This should have been in the changelogs, shame on me, sorry about that.

    The new scoreboard hasn't been put into Invasion or Sandbox yet though, sorry. :(
  • Hi Shatojon,

    here are three saves.
    "Neuland Zwo" (="Newland two" is the Manor House save)
    You will find six files, the files just with the names are the original 0.7.11 files. The files with a _0_8_1 are the converted files.
    Only the Lighthose has light after the conversation, all others not.

    So far my comments:
    Converting an old (pre 0.8.x) means:
    - loosing all Bricktrons, just one will be left --> still the case. A Problem as the Crystal is not working :(
    - all unfinsihed blueprints are lost --> still the case, I understood this is by design. Fine with me!
    - all stockpiles are empty --> still the case and fine for me.
    - all tasks are lost --> still the case, I understood this is by design. Fine with me!
    so far so good.
    - all lights are gone --> the case in two of three games, not working for me. But looks
    fixable as it worked for the Lighthouse somehow.

    AND: The blue crystal is not spawning any wisps (If someone would ask me: Fireflys and Souls sound much better to me)
    That's really bad.

    So Guys enjoy the season. I'll wait fully relaxed for the 0.8.2

    Cheers
    Teawan
