Hey! Woah, two posts in one day.

This is a follow up on this post: Mine Blocks AS3 - DevLog 2!

For the last year I've been working on porting Mine Blocks to ActionScript 3.0. At first it was HUUUGE task, but now it's actually... "almost done"! I've tested most of the basic parts of the game, and they work really well, apart from a some small (and one large) bugs. Also, I did not get to test some of the bigger things, like the nether, the ender, and enchantments.
But in general, as far as the port goes, it's almost done, but with minor features to finish and weird bugs to fix. After that, I can spend more time adding new stuff! Cool beans.

But wait, there's more! Lol, I have exciting news, and a lot of sneak peeks at the next update!

The update would be pointless if there were no new features, right? Well, I'm finally at the point where I can add new content to the update without worrying about glitches! So, as I continue the port, I've been adding some really exciting new features, and polishing up the game even more!

I'll let you see for yourself. See if you can spot the 11 (or so) changes and additions to the game! Here's a video of the update:

SPOILER ALERT!Here's a sneak peek at some of the new features in the next update! I see 11 changes in this one video.

I've also been making sure to fix a bunch of bugs from the last updates too! So far there are over 50 bug fixes and tweaks to the game since the last update. Rafts? Cooked beef? Acid? Shears? All fixed.

I think my favorite bug fix so far is that the lighting no longer has white lines or boxes! Here's a picture of it:

Well... I don't want to spoil too much... ;) but I will leave you with one last video. Enjoy!

Another secret video!

Zanz. I like to use the arrow keys for mineblocks. Because my computer keys aren't very tall. In which using the arrow keys (In my opinion)is more comfortable then wasd keys.
Woah thanks a bunch for the details! May I ask what keys you use for right-click and open inventory?

Zanz, This is just a question. Why did you stop animating?
Well a lot of reasons, I guess! It got very tedious and I wasn't very good at it. My friend and I stopped hanging out so we didn't record more voices. Programming games and making music is a lot more fun to me, so I spend all my time on that. I miss it though! Maybe some day I'll make something silly again :)

Hey Zanz! I wanted to say that for me It's weird how many people comment about how excited they are for the update compared to how many people comment about asking you how the update is coming along. Does it seem like that to you (if that made any sense) anyway here's a lemon! (lemon) (smiley face)
