Update #30

Uberdark Alpha 0.41


Well, the large map stuff is still having a few hiccups (randomly crashing/locking the computer), so it looks like it'll be a few more days before I can post it -- but in the mean time, I'm still posting an alphaversion with improved lighting and block placement and a few other things...  Will post 0.42 as soon as the crash is fixed

Changes from version 0.40...
  [*] Improved lighting
  [*] Improved block placement
  [*] Added Bush object
  [*] Added Shroom object
  [*] Added Female object
  [*] Added Goblin object
  [*] Added Quistador object
  [*] Added crosshairs and angle indicators
  [*] Fixed conservation of building materials
  [*] Made zombis only spawn in dark areas
  [*] Changed inventory-escape to not close game

Here are some of the new concept drawings too...
