Release Thursday – Window package, Music Blocks and Bug Fixes

The Clever Everybody Edits player will by now have realized that we for the past months have had a new release every single Thursday. One of the goals of getting more people onboard was to have a steady release cycle and I am very happy to announce that so fare we have succeeded.

Windows

Todays release contains the whole new window brick. The bricks are above the player and semitransparent and should do well for houses etc.

Blocks out of beta

We also got around to taking the Piano, Drum and Mineral blocks out of beta. Non beta players should be extra happy about this one.

This week in Everybody Edits, Prison pack and bug fixes

This week we used a lot if time bug fixing the friends system. Hopefully we can have it out in the hands of everyone very soon. The updates to the friends system is still pending release but we got around to releasing the new police smiley and prison pack.

You can now build a real world troll prison

While we are quite happy with the pack, we are working on a fix for the flickering that happens when you move around.

We also finally got around to moving the coins to the decoration layer, such that you no longer can hide a coin by standing on top of it.

Play Everybody Edits with friends

The Everybody Edits friends system is finally here! To allow for this large change we created a whole new section on the Lobby screen where you can see info about you, your friends, worlds, and items.

The new profile top

To invite real friends, simply click the +Add button on the My Friends tab on the new lobby screen, and type in their emails.

When they accept, you will be able to see them, their online status, and in which world they are playing, directly on the friends chat.

Friends have green usernames under their smiley and in the user list.

Also, you and your friends can now chat in-game, even if none of you have full chat.

As we are still testing out the friends system, you have to be a beta memver to actually try it. And since the system is still in beta, we might occasionally clear all friends during testing.

Other changes and fixes:

  • The news section has been moved to an overlay that appears when a new version has been released.
  • The game will now remember which smiley you were using between games.
  • We fixed a bug where a single user could be online in multiple worlds at the same time.

These made my day.

Normally I don’t frequent the fan forum, but when I do, I always find great stuff. Todays amazing find goes out to jakery who produced the below gifs.
