Eco Alpha 6.4 Changlog


  • New Features 📡

    • Replaced the character controller

    • Character no longer slips and slides around walls in confined spaces.

    • The new controller is more responsive, should feel better when moving around in precarious situations like building the walls and roofs of buildings.

    • Character climbs stairs without requiring jumping.

    • Character no longer slides off of steep slopes, like roofs.

    • Improved the tutorial

    • Added a Controls popup that tells you how to interact with things in the world when you look at them for 1 second. Shows what each mouse button and ‘E’ key do.

    • Added initial support for playing on local worlds. Note: Initially this is a PC only feature, we will be looking at adding support for this on OSX and Linux in the future.

    • You can create and load worlds locally, and play without needing to setup your own server - it does most of the legwork for you.

    • Added a ‘Continue’ option, which will remember the last server you joined or world you loaded. One click gets you back into the game!

    Revised skills

    • Introduced the concept of ‘Specialties’, which are branches of the skill tree that require research
    • Restructured the skill tree to place all Specialties at the root
    • Reorganized the skills window to be easier to navigate
    • Simplified skill costs

    Avatar improvements

    • Player avatars now have more accurate foot placement and new animations including running, jumping and swimming.

    • Torches can now be seen when carried by other players

    • Updated water art!

    • Improved the end game win sequence.

    • Changed the way the Laser works: it now destroys the meteor 30 seconds after activating. Since this removes the 9 hour charging time, it instead requires double power.

    • Animated the lasers to turn to their target

    • Made the meteor easier to spot, fixed issues where the meteor was impossible to see.

    • Improved hammer functionality

    • Changed the units of the AirPollutionSource and AirPollutionSpread world layers from tons of pollution per 16 square meters to tons of pollution per square meter.

    • Made /help sort and categorize the displayed chat commands.
