Server Update 2018.12: "Larkhall"

Fun update today! We are introducing the BRASS and DIAMOND WEATHER MACHINES:

BRASS WEATHER MACHINE:
- Control the day/night cycle - make it fast, slow, realtime (and set your time zone!), or always day or night.
- Control the rain cycle - normal, always raining, or never raining.

DIAMOND WEATHER MACHINE:
- Control the environmental danger level
- "Pleasant": no environmental damage (including supernovas)
- "Dangerous": standard acidity / heat / cold / supernovas
- "Severe": double heat & cold damage / supernovas
- "Extreme": quadruple heat & cold damage / supernovas

This item is available only in the shop for now, but it will be craftable in a future update.

OTHER UPDATES:
- Added combat accessory blueprints to loot! You can now craft all three scopes
- To go along with the weather machine, we've made heat & cold affect players with high survival again (e.g., no more total immunity). Your time to thirst / frost is now a sliding scale from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on your skill level. "Severe" and "Extreme" weather machine settings shrink that duration as well as causing more damage. Who's ready for some survival worlds?? :D

    FYI I'll be in game for a bit trying out the new weather machine, and then we'll roll it out to all servers.

    Might make the heat / cold duration even more intense on extreme mode ... it's still not much of a challenge :)

    Not right now, although it could be a possibility in the future.

    Maybe the Onyx Weather Machine could allow you to modify the weather to be able to place ice sculptures in temperate worlds?

    And if you change settings, your sculptures melt

    I set up a diamond weather machine in a private arctic world, and put it on "pleasant," but I'm still freezing to death very quickly.

    Whoops! I'll push a fix tomorrow.

    For real though, if the setting would be changed, nothing’d happen since the sculpture has already been placed, problem would be if he decides to place another or mine this one and place it elsewhere

    Do eco-skins still work to stop the environmental damage?
  • DetechDetech Toronto, CanadaMember Posts: 1,557
    @mikelaurence
    Does the diamond weather control machine do what the brass one does?
    Or do you need both?

    Is there an Onyx weather machine coming? :)

    The diamond one does everything the brass one does.

    If I place a weather machine can it be moved? I want to make sure I don’t do the wrong thing
