I am 33 years old and I haven't been this excited about a video game, let alone just a game's content update for years. They are giving us exactly what we have been asking for! Thank you Keen!

Thank you! It really feels good to see people so excited for our game, especially so early on in early access. We still have so much more we want to add <3

Welp. Time to start over. Probably will with every new update. I only have about 5 hours in it anyway lol

The new content doesn't require a restart to enjoy, the game world should automatically update to add the new content :)

I’m very excited to see you guys keeping up with your roadmap, and so quickly. You are the first game basically since valheim, that’s actually excited the open world survival builder community this much.

Depending on your vision for the future of the game. You could definitely be a strong contender to reaching Minecraft’s level of builder community.

As a builder myself, I wanted to ask why was your update notes almost aggressively against the infinite flying mechanic, the community discovered? With the rebalancing of the rings of rapacity the flying wouldn’t have been infinite anyways. But now all the builders don’t have a way to get an aerial view of their builds like before.

That’s what made elytra in Minecraft so popular and powerful.

Being so adamantly against a fun and useful tool for players, could hurt the game down the line.

I understand not wanting it abused to break the games progression. But adding a ring or armor piece that allowed multiple uses of the flying skill. Or an ability to hover around for extended periods of time. Would be loved by the community. And you could balance it by making it tied to end game progression.

Just a thought. I have fully been enjoying the game and look forward to your future development.

Well just to be clear, the update notes were mostly just us saying silly quips, we weren't actually bothered or offended by players doing that :) It was a very clever and fun build.

The infinite flying combo was nerfed simply because we found it to be too powerful and it was an unintended mechanic, though I don't think our balance designers realized how much that combo was beloved by builders specifically when we made that change. We were mostly considering its implications for normal gameplay. The reason we changed it is because it led to some extremely powerful and broken cheese strategies, in particular for skipping over obstacles or accessing areas earlier than intended.

We've seen the feedback from builders though, so the team has been discussing ways we can potentially bring back that same feel without the other exploits. Currently though we're just brainstorming as it's only been a few days.

Hey, are you planning on adding more spells to the game at some point? Not sure if it's possible, but it would be really cool if magic could somehow affect the landscape, like conjuring a wall of stone or blasting a crater into the ground. Something a little more than "colored particles deal damage."

Absolutely love the game.

Definitely! We plan to add more fun toys to play with for all the classes, not just mage :)

What happens if you built on top of those towns you touched up? 

Areas within a flame altar should be untouched to my knowledge, even if the area updated. But that means you won't see the updated content unless you remove the flame altar (and your build) so the world can regenerate in that area.
