NOTE: This update will reset your binds to their defaults.


New Stuff

  • Add an indication of the host’s performance to the scoreboard screen.

  • Add a icon that appears in the top left when you (as a client) get desynced.

  • Added Ban button to the scoreboard screen. Bans reset when the server restarts.

  • Added main menu widget to show login progress.

Do we have to start a new world to get the new resources?


Yes: the meteor showers get put into the world at world gen time. As fair warning, this will be something that happens frequently with updates: in order to get all of the new content, you'll have to start a new world.

If you can feed players directly, cant you just feed them monster meat to kill them? That not really fair =/


I wonder about this as well. Heck, a bunch of candy could kill Maxwell. Also, can you waste food by force feeding people even if they are full?


Not to mention that feeding others directly seems like it would be pretty awkward.

It's also a way to waste food by overfeeding wolfgang.
