    Yea well said +1

    People complained about diamonds, but really once you built with them enough and figured out how they worked, it was pretty easy.

    guys calm down it clearly a small problem. they need to set the building blocks in order to make the game its just that the system there going for is pretty complex, having voxels and meshes together with also a smoothing pass isn't easy they have to write and rewrite a lot of code in order to get things working in a new system from the last it is only a matter of time and patients!!

    I enjoy your game very much and love to see it progress. But please don't let mining look like this in the future. Sure you can make flat surfaces with on hole now. But man, it doesn't hold the same astetics. If we dug two holes in 7.5 we had what we have in 7.6. PLEASE NO MORE MINECRAFT CLONING. Blocky caves are not natural and must be achieved with more work.

    Agree! Smooth Terrain should be below the ground too. THIS looks awful now!

    Hey guys,
    We tried to please some people who had trouble mining but we are going to revert to the 7.5 style terrain, and then make it beautiful in a few weeks after the colliders are in. We will try something else to help people from being disoriented. This will come in a quick patch pretty soon along with any other small bugs that have cropped up.

    Thank you so much, despite it being the first attempt at smoothing the ground me and my friend thought it looked awesome and we can't wait for the newer additions of the smoothing.

    Sorry if the community was making too much noise about the change but honestly the 7.5 ground was so much greater than the current it sucked to find out how blocky the world looked again.

    It brought back the horrible memories of leaping up hills while being chased by zombies lol.

    Thanks Mad mole we all greatly appreciate you guys listen to both camps and allow us our day in court to present our cases, so long as you treat everything we say as just feedback(not just us whining) i think combined with you guys steering the ship(making the judgement calls) it will serve 7d2d well.
