Ashworld v0.6.0 - most stable and awesome version so far!

This whole week I've been focussing on the hard-to-find-and-fix bugs. Some of these bugs were game-breaking bugs, causing missions to go crazy (and all missions after it) or silly stuff like cars vanishing when you jump out, to annoying things like NPC's in buildings keep talking when you just want them to move so you can search the cabinets behind them.

I couldn't stay away completely from adding some new things, but most of the new stuff are improvements on existing things. It's safe to say this is really the most stable the game has ever been (altho I won't say it's 100% bug free yet!)

Some of the highlights on this update:

  • you can now syphon fuel from other cars, this should make it more interesting to keep your own car as main car by simply raiding other cars for fuel and driving off in your own car.
  • brawling has been somewhat improved, hitting enemies with your fists now give them a little push away, making it easier to land multiple blows and gives you a better feeling of being in control over the fight
  • the game is made a bit easier, with various tweaks from giving your more starting-health, to weapon balancing and enemy balancing.
  • there were some missions that didn't work well and could bug it our fairly easily.. all fixed!
  • you can now use your skill-points in more random buildings. Your home will always have the new "skill-desk", but it will now also pop-up in different buildings, so you can use those skill points much easier.

Here's the full list of fixes and improvements:

  • fix: possible null-point in overworld with enemies trying to shoot
  • fix: car-explosion when jumping out on low-energy
  • fix: car vanishing into thin air after jumping out of it (while still having speed)
  • fix: save-game now correctly restores "new skill points" gained since last skill-upgrading
  • fix: skill-desks are now more visual, and placed at more buildings than just home

  • fix: gizmo-fetching mission not correctly seeing you near the satellite

  • fix: non-story avatars in buildings only speak one line and then are done
