Snowballs

I can’t focus on finishing the next animal. Instead, again, I spent most of today adding water texture animation (yes, water now flows properly!) and adding snowballs. Throwing snowballs is actually quite cool, check it out here:

      Hi hypernova. I’ve just added water animation so far, water physics is unchanged as of yet. Not enough time :-)

    That’s neat Kaalus! Quick to find snowballs will help me practice throwing at different angels. Also Smart use of the snow on top of the cold sand blocks! Keep up the fun work!

    Hey kaalus. Just someone that’s been playing the game since 1.0 but has never really thanked you for such an awesome game. Now you’ve added something that I’ve asked for and I just had to express my gratitude. Keep up the good work. You are by far the best game developer I’ve ever seen.

    Throwing snowballs is quite cool. Punny.

    Looks great. Water that has already been altered won’t change right? Because I have a huge water elevator that took me a while and its really cool, but completely based on the unrealistic water physics.

      I would really like to see how your elevator.
      I have tried (in vain) to manipulate water and create different structures without any luck.

    Is the water going to be able to make a slide or waterfall?

        Really another bird? All we can get from a penguin and a seal for the matter is a form of fat, thats all what’s with the artic theme? lol I think some kind of mammal or reptile would be a much better idea haha

        Well penguins are awesome but something like some fish, or a wolf would be awesome

        Well maybe a polar bear could be cool. Bone, fat, leather, or meat think of the possibilities. Plus it would still be with the artic theme, and I’ve seen numerous request for them on the forum. So win win win

        What artic theme? There is no! Artic theme, since there are multiple biomes there will probably be different animals in different places

    I think that he should make things that try to attack you and he should also make better weapons like guns.

      Guns are too modern. Most items are ones that can be made by an average shipwrecked survivor
