Explosions are in. You need to craft gunpowder from saltpeter, sulphur and coal. Then you can make gunpowder kegs, which come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.
Once the fuse is ignited with a match, they will explode after several seconds. They can also be triggered by fire.
I am flying tomorrow morning, just a few hours of sleep left. It was an epic crunch to get this out on time! I only had one day to finish the explosions, so please forgive me if you discover some issues. Will fix when I am back next Sunday!
My guess is that Alpha 1.11 will hit the marketplace around Wednesday/Thursday.
Here’s a short video showing the kegs and explosions:
Edit: I didn’t manage to do anything fancy with explosion pressure propagation for this release, but I want to revisit it for the next one.
Edit2: Please remember I will not have internet access until next Sunday and will not post anything or reply to emails. Do not presume I am dead or turned zombie :-)
