This weeks update has a background pack with clean background colors. It matches the Checker pack, so you can make cool patterns!
Potion of Jump
Another cool new thing is a Jump potion, which makes you jump a bit higher. And it is only 25 energy :-)
As you can see in the picture, I can (hook) jump from one striped block to the other with the jump-potion enabled. The potion turns you a bit purple. However, it only lasts 30 seconds. To make this clear, we have put a potion-timer in the top left corner. This shows which potions are active right now.
Now that we have potions that can change physics, we also introduce a “Turn potions off” button. It i located in the “Modify Level” menu inside a world. It instantly turns off all current potions, and prevent players from using new ones.
But if you have an active potion in a world, and potions are turned off, you can still enter another world, and the potion will be active there.
The icon look like this:
In all existing worlds, potions are turned off by default. In all new worlds, potions are turned on by default.
In my worlds, potions are always allowed. I like people to have fun ;-)
Also, all potions will be released for everybody next week.
As far as I have seen, switches have not been very useful. A lot of people have suggested that they only work for the player who switches them, which I think is a good idea. So fromnow on, the switches only open/closes the doors/gates for you. Let me know if you found some use for the “global” switches, and we can consider reintroducing them later.
As many of you have noticed, the Fan Forum is down. As nobody knows when it will be available again, I recommmend another forum: http://www.everybodyeditsforums.com/
The “Fan Forum” link in the right hand side menu also links to this forum now.
Also in this update:
- The last used smileys are now saved as it is supposed to. Including “standard” and “beta” smileys.
- Switches are no longer visible in the editbar if you can’t use them.
- Some users have had problems connecting to worlds. This should be fixed, but otherwise, please contact me.
Enjoy the jumping, and see you in the worlds!
PS. Yes, I do realize it is a bit weird with no Halloween theme ON Halloween, but the plan was made like this so the worlds containing Halloween stuff would be ready for Halloween. If we released Halloween content today, people would not have a chance to use it in their Halloween worlds.
I forgot to mention that when the “allow potion” is switched on/off, there is a 30 seconds delay before it can be changed again.
Also, press “u” to use a potion that you have chosen.
And hover over a potion to get a description of the potion.
