Change Log for Alpha 0.42
Hi everybody -- been getting up at 3am for the last week, and the large map stuff is finally here! Hope you like it... Will post link in a minute. If it runs slow, try changing the display distance in the SETUP.TXT file -- or if you have a fast machine bump that up to 100. There are some rendering problems with distant terrain (due to the simplistic quality degradation stuff) -- but eventually that'll be replaced by a more elaborate system (that runs faster too)...
Anyway -- this version also has some less rudimentary crafting code in place (RECIPE.TXT file in various objects) -- basically, it's a list of 10 other objects that can be combined to create the object in question... Sorta like this...
[4 and 5]
-- That probably doesn't make sense (and there are some kinks to work out with it) -- but that's the basics of it.
This version also has a bunch of Brennan's new music he's been composing -- the title track is really good -- might even make a little intro piece to go with it eventually... It's attached below if you wanna hear it...
The artists have also been getting some good work in, and will post some of that in a few days... But for now...
Changes from version 0.41...
- Added crafting recipe system

Pledge $10 or more
Will receive a registered copy of the game. Several versions will be made available as the work progresses through alpha, beta and release stages. First version (alpha) will be made available in early August.
Pledge $25 or more
Same as the $10 reward -- but you will also get the warm fuzzy feeling for going above and beyond. That, and I'll give you the link to draw your own little dorfs using the template I made up (it's an image you can print out)
Pledge $50 or more
Same as the $10 reward -- but will also receive an official Lords of Uberdark T-Shirt, featuring some sort of snazzy character artwork.
Pledge $100 or more
Will receive (in addition to the above) a Project Notebook -- a hardback book which contains miscellaneous formulas, notes, sketches, etc -- related to the making of Lords of Uberdark and signed by the author.
Pledge $500 or more
1 backer Limited (9 of 10 left)
Will receive (in addition to the above) a custom text statement that will be shown to the user when the game starts (ie "Dedicated to ~~~~~~"). Text will show up one tenth of the time (randomly), after the game has loaded. www addresses will not be permitted and text must not be vulgar.
Pledge $1,000 or more
Corporate sponsorship. Will display corporate logo while the game is loading. All corporate logos will be stuffed into a single image (something like a racecar), and will be sized according to the pledge amount (more money means a larger logo). Logos must not be vulgar.
Pledge $1,500 or more
0 backers Limited (1 of 1 left)
Will receive a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, knowing that you just bought me a shiny new computer. That's all.
