#2

I have made it my mission to obtain all resource eggs!


#3

I was reading and began to panic
then I scroll up and see it’s under “expert” and calm waaaaay down


#4

Access to Single player saves still seems to be not accessible. Are we not going to get this feature back?


#5

When a plethora of new content is added, it’s nice to have a lot of optimizations on the side, and many of these changes do in fact make the game more intuitive. Very good update, very balanced.


#6

I’ll admit, all these toggled values made me a bit apprehensive, but this made up for it:

:smiling_imp:


#7

This is amazing! Thank you for making this grand compendium, I shall use it as a checklist for what to build in the future…

Also, are we allowed to feel giddy if it looks like one of our suggestions made it into the update?


#8

Thanks. I needed this.


#9

I heard someone say unicorns exist now. Is this true?


#10

Yes, it’s true.

Unicorns!

#11

I love the new expert mode! It’s so tedious and fustrating. I love it.
It’s the first time the blockheads has been challenging in ages


#12

You can get lower case letters in signs!

Also the three doors trash disposal method sadly doesn’t work anymore.


#13

YES I VAGUELY REMEMBER SUGGESTING THIS LIKE 2 YEARS AGO

This must have been destined for me cuz it’s really my second favourite cake flavour after red velvet, and I realllyyyyy like rainbows omg

Awwwwwww yisss thanku thanku my suggestion made it to 1.7 I now feel like a proud mother of diamonds

WOW I FREAKING LOVE UNICORNS

Somehow this update really suits me cuz I’m all about the rainbows and unicorns!!! I’m gonna go download it now


#14

Wut? What about the people who absolutely whaled on the TCs and spent hundreds of dollars on this game?


#15

Not all tc just the item you sometimes get from meditating.


#16

TC is no longer used to fund servers. You can still use them to teleport, speed things up, and pretty much everything you used to do with them.


#17

That’s great, perfect for my list of changes of the game!


#18

Dude same!


#19

How do you find unicorns and resource eggs?


#20
