    @faatal

    Dear phsyics guy. Can you explain to us plebes what the deal is with characters being taller than 2 blocks clipping through doors is? Is it the same thing as 4 leggeds clipping through walls?

    Thanks in advance.

    Iím just a little surprised that itís tied to the left mouse button. It kind of precludes shooting from a vehicle. At least itís not bound to Q.

    The top speed of the Jeep was also satisfying, if not phenomenal. I didnít notice any loading delays.

    My biggest desire for road vehicles is still that driving through debris or tall grass slows down the vehicle, rather than only all-or-nothing Ďhardí collisions. I think this is important for distinguishing the vehicles from each other and making the roads more than just a different texture.

    I think Iíll enjoy the change of scenery in the fall-themed forest for at least an Alpha, before it becomes same-old same-old and Iíll pine for seasons so we can have the best of both worlds.

    Is that actual? I've heard recently that changing the server (adding a plastic feather recipe) did in fact go out to clients w/o anything doen on their end. It really confused me hearing this as I thought the opposite would be the case.

    I meant it probably is not sent the second you change and reload xml on a server. When a client connects it should be sent. This is a guess. I made it reload, but didn't write all the rest of that code, so not sure.

    Not sure, but I'd guess it is mismatches between sizes/shapes of meshes vs colliders/controllers.

    I have suggestion. Make road material to snap perfectly with non natural blocks(bricks, metal plates....). This way you can lower bridge to road level. Problem solved

    But on other hand adding ability for jeep to jump through any 45į block would be even better!

    No. The car was just a test of 4 wheeled vehicles until I got the jeep model.
    With my luck I am sure we will meet on day one right after I craft my first arrow.

    I am hoping the jeep, motorcycle, and g-copter models are at least templates for modders to tinker with and make a variety of vehicles. It would be nice to have a fast but fragile car, a slow but max inventory space van, maybe a slow bus that can seat 6+ players, and of course a truck with many speakers and a flamethrower guitarist on top.

    Youíre right - the A16 minibike is overpowered and needs attention, too.

    Also I added Distant Trees since even though Joel didn't specifically mention it, it is pretty obviously in and looks great! People were speculating on it from faatal's pics but in the video it is conclusive.
    Maybe add the gyrocopter to the Ďmaybeí list?

    ...Maybe?

    A random chance at your generators being powered down would kind of be interesting. Just imagine horde night being in full swing, you watch your blade traps just chewing it up, with no danger to you. Suddenly your base blacks out, all the lights are gone, all you have is your night visions and an ďoh fckĒ look on your face as you mad scramble to get prepared because they are coming in hard

    Best new feature so far!
    Transition between near and distant water also looks a lot smoother.

    For that matter, you can sit the first and every subsequent horde night out mining underground, no fuel consumption needed.
