    Looking to the future


    Bioxx

    So it's been a good long while since I've released a meaningful blog post and I'm kind of bored so I thought it would be a good time to write some nonsense in order to pass the time.

    I'm sure that a lot of longtime fans have noticed how slowly that we've been releasing major updates this year and that is entirely my fault. The amount of time that I find myself in a coding zone has been drastically decreasing since the early days of tfc development. Some of that is just me, but some is due to how monumental it has become to add new features since more often than not implementing one thing has an effect on other systems, and it takes a lot of care to not create tons of trouble. That said, I do want to apologize to all the fans that hope for more frequent content updates.

    Now onto what is coming..

    Build 78 wont be here until the new year most likely. We haven't really narrowed down what HAS to be in 78, but it doesn't 'feel' close to done yet in my opinion (This is totally how I choose release dates, and it pisses dunk off :P). As far as confirmed contents, we've got quivers, wild berry bushes, and a heavily reworked ore spawning system. I'm not going to go into too much detail at this point, but the ore spawning bugs that have plagued TFC since time immemorial have been dealt with ala the Y60 bug. Another change along side this that a lot of you will appreciate is that sedimentary layers no longer spawn below the first layer. Additionally, Metamorphic rock cant spawn below the first 2, so only igneous rocks will be found in the bowels of the earth. This is just a few of the things to come.

    Lastly, I wanted to make everyone aware that dunk and myself can now be found on twitter @TFC_Dunk and @TFC_Bioxx. Dunk has been on there for considerably longer than me, and many of you may know about his account already. I on the other hand just bothered setting it up, but I'd like to start using it going forward to post screenshots of new features as they get added, so definitely follow us to get all the pretty pictures.

    Maybe, but remember the first part of metallurgy is casting. That means that once I make my copper pickaxe and find a vein (Remember that native copper is surface ore and spawns on igneous rock, or if I find tetrahedrite) I just dig deep. On deep layers there is only igneous rock, so my problem is solved!
