Just clicked the submit button.
Microsoft admits freely all around the web that certification times have increased recently, but maybe it won’t be too bad. I expect this to hit the marketplace around Friday. I fixed all the conditional cert failures from the last submission, and I hope I haven’t introduced any new ones, especially with the new signs UI.
Apart from signs, adventure mode, geometry generation optimization, bulls and weblinks, which were all covered before, there are two new ores to be found underground:
Saltpeter layers, which are found in fairly shallow flat patches in granite:
Sulphur crystals, which are found deep underground below mountains in small aggregations in basalt:
I am 100% sure you can guess what these will be used for :-) Unfortunately this new thing is not coming in Alpha 1.10. I don’t want to delay it any more. The ores are there, you can dig them up and stock on them, but the new stuff you can make from them will come in the next one.
