Description:
In this week’s update we are bringing research on blocks and a progress spinner for picking up small blocks to the survival game mode. From now on, you will start your survival journey with knowledge only about a few basic blocks. If you want to build more advanced blocks, you will need to draw the schematics on a scroll on a crafting table and learn it (use with right click). After you have the knowledge, you can build more advanced blocks. Schematics scrolls can also be given to other players who will learn them by using the scroll themselves.
We have also improved the object pick up notification. A small piece of information will appear every time you pick up an object. Keep in mind that these are just first iterations, so let us how you like it!
Research is fully moddable and players can add their modded blocks to research, should they want to. This feature works for tool blueprints, too. This means that if you want to make research for a blueprint of your powerful modded sword, you can now do so.
We have also added a support for layering icons. We use the tech to create schematic scroll icon by putting scroll icon on a background behind icon of block. This will work for any modded blocks as well and you can layer unlimited amount of icons.
