Update 02.009 – Manipulation tool, Peasants

Featured Video Play Icon

The object manipulation tool has been added in Medieval Engineers. This tool can be used for moving, and throwing dynamic objects (a dynamic object is anything that is not attached to the ground or on a grid that is attached to the ground – for example a stone that is on the ground is a dynamic object and can be manipulated while a stone that is part of a building is a static object, thus it can’t be moved). The character is able to pick up objects that weigh less than 180 kg and throw them, but objects that are heavier than 180 kg can only be pulled/pushed.

Additionally, we added a new type of AI character, “peasants”. This is a prototype version and is still work-in-progress. Their purpose for now is to collect stones and other objects and move them to their spawn point. Also, the behavior tool can now support multiple behaviors (barbarians and peasants) – see the guide for more info: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=405741035.

Lastly, there is a chance of fogs during the morning hours. Also, we implemented the feet IK algorithm, which means that the character’s legs will adapt to the terrain.
